This is what I generally use. Slightly bulkier than straight heat shrink, but not that much when shrunken down. And I canít forget to put the heat shrink on first.

The uninsulated splices make sense for bit harness jobs, but the heat shrink splices are more convenient.

Did all of the gauges and whatnot wire up directly? Or do those go through the Haltech, too?

And does the stock throttle pedal just wire up to the Haltech on one side?

Stock throttle wire up, you calibrate it, it works. Pretty cool.

Gauges are CAN BUS and yeah, the Haltech controls them perfectly.
