I did and they said I could follow the instructions for the F90 installation. It doesn't seem to be the same.

It's pretty damn close. The driver's side EWG connector is easily accessible with only removing the plastic cover.

The passenger side EWG connector is available after you take the top turbo hose off, then take off the rubber piece between the two clamps.

Twist that piece up and you have complete access to the other one.

I have pictures if you need.

Hey thanks for the response!
If you could send me the pictures and anything you have that would really help me out.
The instructions from BMS for f90 seems a little complicated.

Thanks a lot!!

I'm assuming this is for the passenger side. Same exact process for the driver side?

You have access to the driver side without doing anything.

Perfect!! That makes my life so much easier. Thanks, I appreciate it!

I'm going to take a few logs in over the weekend before I update the JB4 firmware and plug the EWG connectors in. See how much of a difference it makes!

Do you have them plugged in already on ur car?
