Recently saw this via a discussion and ordered one (cheap) and wanted to get some thoughts on this. It is a simple board that connects your Aux wires in the engine bay up to a board to facilitate "easier" connections to the Aux wiring.

My current pros and cons:
Pros:
  • It does simplify the connections points and grounding
  • Seems to be well made
  • Cost
Cons:
  • Not sure it is worth installation as it 1) adds another fail point in the connection and 2) still the same work as connecting direct to the Aux wires.
  • Seems redundant, and seems exposed a bit more that a direct connection to Aux wires with Nomex/Shrink etc.

So it's just a terminal strip with labels?

Could just run something like that and keep it waterproof I would think.
I feel that is all it really is... to me it is another connection where one may not be needed (another point of failure) and the concern with waterproofing as it is as open as it shows in pic. Under the hood, but water could get up in there. I get the concept, just not sure if needed and was looking for opinions. Soldering on it is done well, butt connectors already attached and ready for Aux wiring connect, but seems redundant.
