The bypass mod really only requires basic low voltage electrical skills/tools like wire cutter/strippers and a soldering gun. If you can install a car stereo by following directions, you can do the bypass mod. From what I recall, identifying the wires was the most intimidating part. I suspected I had the right ones and then was certain once l I stripped the plastic loom back far enough to find those wires were isolated by their own insulated jacket. That left no doubt. From there it's simply cut the wires, leaving a few inches to the connector incase you were to ever want to return to stock, and tape them up to protect. Solder the resistor between the wires leading to ECU and either use electrical tape or shrink tubing before stuffing the connections back into the wire loom and use electrical tape over the wire loom where it was stripped back. It will look no different then stock once complete.

I personally wouldnt chose the bypass but i am not sure what difference is with relocate. As far as price, i just bought a cheap ks from net and works fine. I did do plugs before ks trying to narrow down issue. Not sure I mentioned it but i just relocated ks to firewall. I tried to put it on a bolt on back of sc but continued to exp my timing retarded and read it could be caused by noise in the bearings in the sc pulley. Firewall relocation did the trick for me.
