JB4 Part Question

I got a JB4 used and I'm trying to figure out what this part of the harness does or what I need to do with it. It isn't shown in the install video and I can't seem to find any info on it.

a quick email to terry with that picture would probably get things all sorted out.

Looks like the adjustable part of the DP Fix.

Yeah, you don't need that, just use the auto clear.

Most likely so that he could meet readiness and pass emissions with catless downpipes. I would keep it if you have or want DPs.

Its the DP Fix...

You can just leave it in as I assume you didn't get any additional small wires with the JB4. When the person installed the DP fix they removed wires from the JB harness, so you can't simply remove without replacing the wires.

If you want to remove if you need to check which wires are not used by your stock DME connector and relocate those to the area the DP fix is installed.

Thanks Mike. I think I'll just leave it on there if its not harming anything. Is there a certain setting I need it on for stock dps?
