Vtec indicator light

Hey well after doing this mod, and seeing some ppl were having problems, i decided to post up this DIY.
I chose to tape instead of soldering becase i dont have a soldering iron, and i would be afraid of belting the Vtec wire

Steps: 20

Time: 10-15 Minutes

- 1 Led of your choice
- 1 Resistor ( i used a 330 ohm 1/4 watt)
- 2-5 ft of wire/ speaker cable
- Scissors
- wrench or pliers
- black/electrical tape

Optional Materials:
- Soldering Iron
- Wire Tap-in
- Butt Conectors
- Drill
- Enough gas to go test it
- 6 pack of beer
