I take it that the two ShifterPro sensors replace the two front sensors? What about the read sensor??

I assume taht you meant "rear sensor". You can leave your current rear sensor attached. You can also purchase two more shifters and plug them into the bridge box which has ports for a total of four shifters. If you do this then I recommend disconnecting the older rear shifter.

Default Do we have to re cable the sensors to install new?

Since the wires already go through firewall, panels, under carpets, etc.... do we have to take them out with the sensors.... or can we reuse them?

The difference in cabling is a 10 minute install job or a 4 hour install job...

The existing shifters must be replaced. I haven't seen if there are any wiring differences in the physical wire that is used. If they're the same, perhaps it would be possible to re-use the old wiring, but you'd need to make sure that the polarity is correct, and you'd need to solder them together and heat-shrink the connections to ensure that they are weather tight. When my upgrade arrives, I'm simply going to disconnect and remove the old ZR4 front shifters, and install the LSPs in their place.

The shifters are sensitive to electronic noise. I do not advise splicing them. Run the new cables with the new shifters.

Do you need to use both the USB connection to the original control box and the new bridge box when updating or will all of the updated be through the new bridge box?

To update the shifters you only use the USB connection on the Laser ShifterPro bridge box.

Updates to the Passport 9500ci or Beltronics STi-R Plus using Detector Tools are done as they were before with the USB connection to their interface module.

Is there an additional cable and external port similar to the one that came with the 9500ci? Where I have to put the bridge there is no possible way to get to it without tearing apart the dash.
