ur diagram is correct, go to radio shack and look for a switch that has 6 prongs on the back but only has two settings, a off and a on, some people get confused and buy a switch that has a on/off/on setting

personally i did it by the computer, that way i did not have to run anything from the engine and i found it to be much easier as the wires were really close to each other on the wiring harness

The correct type of switch for the e-ttc mod is a DPDT(Double Pole Double Throw) switch. Hope that helps.

once the battery is disconnected i dont think removing the harness provides any additional safety, but it does give you more play in the wires and more room to work with since there isnt that much when the harness is in. Its very easy to disconnect and when you reconnect just make sure you get it all the way in and tighten it hard cause if its loose the car wont start

How big of a difference will i be able to feel? I did this and i cant feel a difference aso im thinking i did it wrong. I cut the two wires in half, extened each end into the switch and grounded it. I believe thats all i have to do?

In TTC mode the car has more lag, almost feels like the #1 turbo is missing. If you have a boost gauge you will notice that there won't be any boost until ~3000 RPMs? Anyway I attached another diagram for you to look at. Maybe your ground is bad, might want to check that.

Grounding is simple. Take off the kick panel and find an exisiting ground screwed into the frame. Unscrew that and add your new ground to it and there ya go. :) Hope this helps.
