Air shifter install questions

I ordered the mps air shifter a couple months ago and have been putting it off b/c me and electronics do not get along at all. I ordered the electronic engil kill kit, along with the switch swapper and Coil Harness to try to make it as easy as possible. can anyone chime in with how diffucult this actually is? Ive put it off long enough and tired of it just sitting on the shelf. I think betweent the switch swapper and coil harness it should be plug and play? Im pretty sure i shouldnt have to hack into my wireing with the harness that i bought. Im mechaniclally inclined but like i said i hate anyting with wires/electronics.

I used the MPS on my gen 1 with the schitz coil harness.. it was extremely easy you may need to splice into your horn wires to runt the switch but i dont even forsee that. If you have any questions just ask. not sure if you are on facebook or not but Zx10r Drag Tech also has alot of information

I think the Schnitz harness came with instructions when I bought mine and MPS has really good instructions too.

I couldn't hear my horn when going highway speeds over my exhaust and never used it around town so I took my horn off and just ran my wires for the air shifter straight to the stock horn plug. So I'm not too sure how difficult the switch is but the rest of it is pretty straight forward and easy.

With the Schnitz harness and MPS kill box its a really easy setup.

I've got my solenoid right off my ram. I've read what gazx10 has said that you get best performance that way.
