Green Connector Mod

I am highly considering doing this -
The green connector mod - YouTube

Anyone know what type of plug the green connectors, or where I could buy them?

ive thought about doing that when i ran into some issues and had to reflash the map a handfull of times. would come in handy,but then how often do you really plan to re flash. its a very simple job to do. its on my list of stuff to do... but way down on that list. im sure to do this all you have to do is wire a switch inline. keep the connectors connected and once you turn on the switch it closes the circuit to put it into test/flash mode. you can get a switch and wire for less than $20 at an auto parts store

No, it's not difficult. I just wanted to know where to buy the connectors from. I didn't want to do spade connectors. When I start to dabble on E85 and upgrading my turbo set up, I am sure I will be utilizing it more. They are a sonofabitch to plug/unplug during a dyno session.

Yup! And since I don't use them often they are still "like new". So, once you plug them it feels like you super glued them together. I am scared of ripping them out of the harness anyway when I attempt to unplug them.

I just simply spliced the wire on the other side of the connector and ran it to the switch. Did mine years ago...
