Keep the autocom unit and any cables associated with it away from the 
FI "brain", unless you like knowing when your injectors are opening...


My autocom is always placed in the tail section on both of my RSs. I am

Make sure you ground it to the frame. Do not share a negative lead with 
any electrical component.
