it might of been a switch for the limiter which explains why the cop cars were so much faster

Its the switch that installs the copper ecu program which gives you an extra 100rwkw :P

Its an EA - ~28years old
how many owners has it gone through ? at least the cops and 1 other before your mate got to it. highly think that someone added it for some reason, doubt it had anything to do with the cops though.

What pin did it go to ?

probably a kill switch for the injectors...............or it turns the EA cop car into the delorean and activates the flux capacitor, for time travel ...lol...
