I recieved my Raptor shiftlight w/ Launch Control from Casper on Thursday, who really really went out of his way to hook me up. The shiftlight was very easy to install, just uncomfortable.

I chose to mount mine on the cluster, between the Speedo and Tach, at the top, in front of the Directionals and Highbeam signals. Heres the write up

- Disconnect the Negative battery terminal.
- Decide where you want to mount your shift light.




Remove the gauge cluster.





Leave some of the wire so you can pull the shiftlight out if you want to change the launch or shift points. Just zip tie it.



Also remove the silk panel before you remove the Kicker panel.



After that, remove the bolt going to the PCM its a 10mm nut.

Then remove the black cover off the PCM, I forgot to take a picture of that. Just pry the 4 tabs with a flathead. So all the wires are visable.



For the launch control, the white wire goes off the white wire with the orange stripe.



I used 22 gauge wire connectors. I didnt feel like soldering wires, and they came out good.

Dont forget to ground the black wire.



Finish product

Also, I drilled 2 holes through the Instrument belzel. One to mount the shiftlight, the other was behind to feed the wire through. Sorry for some of the typo's, I can't spell apparently lol.

Yea it was very simple. Took me like an hour, but if I had to do it again, it would take like 20 minutes.

What color LED did you go w/? I can't decide between Red or Yellow in the silver aluminum housing...
Its yellow LED's. I like it. I wanted the black house to match with the instrument bezel.

Lol...You still have the powerpipe? Or did you sell it to someone?

Also, i feel bad more for the 5 speed Mach 1 guys. They got the steel crank, they should have atleast just thrown some better rods and pistons in them.

Quick question before I install. The red 12v wire and the light green with white stripes go to the shift light only right? No need to reconnect back to the saquare gray thing right??

How do you guys have the cylinder selection set?

Edit: Just read that I need to "splice" the wires =D
