Geez!!!! somma youse guys needta hire a proofreader...............

If I understand your question, that's the purpose of the pot - convinces the PCM that you're demanding less Boost than you really are - whether spring or vacuum control.

I would cut the signal wire about 6" from the connector, so the pot could be tie-wrapped to the plenum - but, get your pot, look at the real estate around the MAP connector, then you decide.

Most Map connector latches are heat-broken and should be tie-wrapped to the sensor body, anyway.

My 10t pot, in the instrument panel, is wired directly into the connector at the PCM - and, the broken Map connector is tie-wrapped to the sensor body

Not good, my friend - so, after you get your 10k pot, place it on the intake plenum next to the Map Sensor.

Compare how sturdy, durable, the pot looks on the plenum, then on the Map connector.

Decide which place to mount the pot, then, noting the wire colors from the schematic, cut the appropriate wire coming out of the Map Sensor connector to the length which will allow you to mount the pot.

Iirc, there are even some pics of various installs here on this forum.

Anyone care to post a link, for clarity?
