    I believe the Bullit and the GT have rev match. As for the GT350 I haven’t heard anything about it.

    I knew there was a difference, could not remember exactly what.

    Thanks.

    I would strongly encourage anyone planning to install AutoBlip to toss the miserable little wire connectors it comes with into the trash and get some Posi-Tap connectors. These are by far the most secure, easy to use wireless connectors I've ever come across. They are even reusable.

    I had zero issues with the taps that came with it.

    No doubt the Posi-Tap are an improvement as I've used them before but I'm with Kevin and have had zero issues with the connectors that came with the kit. If I did, I'd go the Posi-Tap route.

    Just bought a used auto blip. Since I need to buy taps, thinking of using Posi-taps.

    Does anyone know what gauge of wires the connectors use? Are all 3 connectors using the same wires gauge?

    The wires are all the same gauge and probably 16/18 gauge. Send Andres an email at Autoblip and ask. He’s usually quick to respond.

    Here is Andres response:
    “I would suggest getting the red posi-taps which are spec for a 20-22 gauge wire. The blue ones maybe too big, they are spec for a 16-18 gauge wire.”

    Thanks for the offer but I ordered some posi-taps yesterday. Should be here tomorrow.

    Might attempt the install on Sunday. Track day coming up in a couple of weeks and would be nice to have it in before then.

    Not looking forward to it. I hated doing the clutch spring replacement. Big guy trying to fit into that area is not easy. Probably need a visit to the chiropractor before it is all over.

    Take the seat out. Just don’t forget to disconnect the battery before you do. Good luck man. It’s not that hard just a tight fit

    I can’t really do that easily. I have a Recaro fixed back on a custom mount bolted to the floor. There is no room behind the seat. Getting to the reear bolts to take it out is likely worse than doing the AB install with the seat in. On the bright side, the seat is as far back as it can go. So hopefully enough room.

    Good luck with your install. Have someone take photos of you under the dash. I'm 6'2" and it was a royal PITA getting up under the dash, and that was with the seat out!
