Pardon my noobness, but the brown box looking thing in this picture,



where does it go? I see it near the shifter when the whole thing is dismantled. Do you stuff it in there? Also, what is it (a fuse?)?

This will be my first DIY mod. Thanks!

You're welcome. My installer, Matt, just put the Brown plastic box inside the shift boot (or below switch). It's a relay.

Check your pm for ordering info. There are VERY limited quantity available until next shipment.

thanks

Why can I not find the harness on the 370Zsource.com? Are they not available yet, or is it a special order thing, or a have to call into the store? Any suggestions?

Currently they only have limited supply, you have to email/call to order one. The next shipment will be a larger order and I think they will add it to the website then.
