N2mb install help

Hey guys, I just got my n2mb wot box in the mail for my 2004 Gt and I want to attempt it by myself and have read the directions a couple times and think i know what I'm doing. I do want to clarify a few things though, going to sound like a dumbass. 🙈 but I've never have done any wiring. So when I splice a wot box wire into a harness, do I just connect it to the harness wire I'm using or replace part of it? I'm assuming I just strip some of the rubber off and tie all the wires together and solder and heat wrap.

And on the last step where you connect it to the coil packs and ignition, is there a certain place it has to be on the wire other than just close to the end?

Thanks! Any tips at all on the install will be much appreciated, sorry for dumb questions but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Im not sure about what your doing but here is a general electrical pro tip. Dont cut, strip, and tape. Use quick splicers, thats their name can get them anywhere. Locks your wire right into existing wire no cutting, taping, splicing, etc

Thanks man! Are those reliable?? Assuming you use them. They just have a bad star rating when I looked them up.

I've used them for years on just about everything thats small gauge wire. Even on 24 volt humvee and 220ac. Get 3M ones bulk bag. Never run out of uses for them.

I believe there is at least 1 wire you have to interrupt. It's been a few years, however.

And also tends to fail and cause poor connection issues. I haven't met any pros who use vampire clips to do electrical work

Solder connections are the best especially with higher current and won't come apart

Alright well ive used them forever with no issues. Just use them properly and don't use the cheap ones. For you saying no, have you actually had a quality one fail on you or is this more word of mouth.

I've had them fail. They are quite easy to crimp too tight and break and I have also seen them start to gather some rust.
