Hi there... I'm interested in buying a chip for my IS300. Before I buy it though I want to make sure I can install it... can you tell me what wires I have to connect in order to get it working correctly? Do I find them in the computer or where? Do you have a wiring diagram or something that we can go by I can't solder by my friend can do we need to solder ot just conenct the wires? Do we have to cut any wires?

Will be interesting to see the response...

Now come on... they say it connects to 6 wires... 4 in and 2 out.

That's pretty close to what an SAFC needs... TPS/RPM/MAF-in then MAF-out... it could be something that just reduces the MAF signal by a percentage, leaning you out.

Lets see if he answers my email.
