    . Installing the Electrical C'onnections

    Installation of the Venom's harness usually requires four connections

    to the vehicles electrical system, they are:

    . Power (+V).

    . Ground.

    . Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) signal wire.

    . Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor (MAP) signal wire OR the

    Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) signal wire.

    Power and ground connections are covered in this section. The

    sensor connections are covered in the "Sensor Connections" on

    the inside back page.

    . Connecting power to the Venom's RED wire.

    The Venom's red wire should be connected directly to the vehicles

    positive battery terminal. The end of the Red wire has an

    eyelet that will connect directly to the vehicles Positive battery

    terminal lug. The Venom draws approximately 10 mlill-amps at

    all times. This is about as much as the clock in the vehicle. If

    you drive your vehicle at least once a month the Venom will not

    draw the battery below starting capability. If you store your vehicle

    for extended lengths of time you may wish to install a switch

    in line with the Venom's red wire prior to the fuse connection.

    You may also connect the Venom's Red wire to a switched

    power source from the Ignition switch.

    . Connecting the ground to the Venom's BLACK wire.

    The Venom's Black wire should be connected directly to the vehicles

    negative battery terminal or a chassis ground. The end

    of the Black wire has an eyelet that will connect directly to the

    vehicles negative battery terminal lug.


    Do not completelyre nX>ve the battery tem1/nals to connect the terminal eyelets.

    it shouki not be associated with the operatbn of the Venom.

    . Securing The Harness

    Use the supplied wire harness ties and adhesive mount bases to

    secure the harness. Ensure that the harness Is not routed to

    closely to any rotating engine parts or parts that get hot enough

    to melt the cable insulation. Also see Locating The Module for

    other precautions.

    wiras ackis a professKJnal touch. This harness rorn Is available for a nominal expense

    at any kx:al parts store.

    . Installing The LED

    The lED bulb indicates when the Venom is active. The Venom

    module has a disable switch. When switched so the "I" is down

    the Venom is disabled. The vehicle is restored back to Its original

    configuration. When switched so the "0" is down the Venom

    only becomes active when under moderate to heavy acceleration

    and load conditions. During normal to light driving the

    Venom monitors the vehicles sensors and remains inactive until

    it senses the proper time to become active. This maintains original

    fuel economy when the extra po\Ver is not needed.

    You may install the lED Into the dash panel or center console.

    The connector kit Includes an lED Bezel that will hold the lED

    In the hole and the panel. A 1/4" hole will need to be drilled

    into the panel in which the LED will be mounted.

    . Testing The Venom

    To test the Venom press the "0" on the switch located on the

    top of the module. Start the Ignition and drive the vehicle. Under

    heavy acceleration the lED light should come on Indicating

    the Venom is active. You will notice an Increase in performance

    and responsiveness.

    With the switch in the disable position ("I" pressed down) the

    LED light should remain off during all vehicle operating conditions.

    electrical connections.
