Nope u have eveything u need. I don't have the pc3 manual in front of me, but that Fig.F is not required.

#1.Splice in the grey wire.
#2. Plug in the jumper harness.
#3. ground the black wire.

That's it easy as 123. Enjoy.

IIRC, there was one wire that is only used on european models. The instructions tell you this in unclear terms, re-read the instructions and look for it.

Figure G. Steps 11 & 12 are for european models only.

The connection from PC3 plugs into the license plate wiring harness. (not 100% sure on this)

Pull all the connectors out of that silly looking opaque sleeve. Inside there will be a small 2 pin connector that looks like the ones off the PC3.

Disconnect the OEM cannon plug and install one end into ine side of the PC3 connector, and the other end into the other side.

It is a plug and play jumper harness used to supply the PC3 with ignition on 12v, without hacking into the wiring.

Hopefully that makes sense.

One patches their PC3 to a PowerCommander software loaded computer and goes from there.
Get to a device that will let you access the DropBox, as some of the info is video tutorials.
It's not a simple description, but it is easy to do.
Get to the DropBox, get to the Power Commander Files then the McRomo44 Compilation.
It's all there, plus lots more info.

The grey wire gets spliced into the red/yellow wire on the grey ecu connector.

I'm pretty sure the sycing they're talking about is syncing the pcIII to the tps... It's under one of the windows in the power commander software.

Click reset, and then move the throttle from closed to wide open a few times.... This lets the pc3 know where closed and open are as a value of the output of the tps

It doesn't need to be running, just keyed on... Wide open in neutral might be bad...lol

Yes you need to reset and sync the TPS to the PC3.

You don't have to have the engine running, just key turned on and ecu/pc3 powered up.

Twist the trottle to full wide open, then while holding it there hit reset to sync. Then do the same for fully closed throttle.

I just spoke to a shop about buying a commander and was informed I'd also need an 02 Eliminator - anyone heard of this thing - cost around $44.00.

There is no O2 sensor on the 919. Get a new shop.

Tell them OK, but that you want the old sensor back once they remove it.
