Here is my work log installing a Toodles Kitty TE S into a Mad Catz Chun Li TE S
Keep in mind, during this time I was working with the Beta test version of the TE-S harnesses for the Kitty TE, so there might be changed with Toodles Production version.
This is not to replace Toodles’ Instruction pdf guide but to complement it, give a different perspective. The Official Kitty class board thread
This guide also applies to the other Xbox 360 Mad Catz TE-S Arcade Sticks.
This does not cover the Regular TE Kitty installation or How to install a Kitty in a SE.
Phillips screwdriver (#0 or #1 in size)
#3 (3mm) metric Allen wrench
Electrical tape or Electrical shrink wrap
X-acto or similar hobby knife
Sharpie or similar permanent marker
Small flat blade precision screwdriver
[*]Needle nose pliers
1 TE-S Arcade Stick, Xbox 360 version
1 Kitty TE PCB
6 Kitty TE ribbon cables
3 Kitty TE-S ribbon cables

1 Ethernet cord
1 RJ45 Passthough or other 8/9 Pin disconnect port for Multi-Console
1 Drill with small drill bit (for neutrik mounting)
**Note: **Avoid any other mods, Joystick, buttons, Top panel, art, until you finish with the Kitty.
Mod only 1 thing at a time.
Step 1: Remove top carriage bolts
Remove all 6 top carriage bolts with a #3 hex allen wrench or hex bit. While opening the TE, careful not to press down on the bolts as you unscrew to avoid damaging and striping the plastic threads in the TE case. Twist the bolts but never push down.
Step 2: Disconnect the Joystick
Using a shark x-acto knife or other hobby knife CAREFULLY cut and scrape the yellow/brown hot glue holding the wire harness to the JLF. Remove the wire harness.
Step 3: Free up cables and unscrew main board
Using wire cutters cut the zip ties Holding the various wires and cables together.
Careful not to snip any wires during the process.
