The harness was just going to be a clean up at first as im no electrical expert (new loom, remove vris sensors etc...) but once you get all the loom off and really take a look at it all it really isnt that hard to design a harness the way you want it. Ive made good progress on it so far by removing every sensor / connector thats not needed and just ran some rope through the engine bay to plan out the new layout. Ill post pictures as i go.
Sorry not much news on the motor as of yet but I am making some good progress on the engine harness project. I deleted a ton of un-used connectors / sensors at the ECU pins which really made the harness a lot easier to work with as now I am down to only 14 connectors off the ECU. I had planned on splicing the harness into a bulkhead connector into the firewall but after a bit of research it turned out to be a lot more costly to do this than expected and with only 14 connectors now I scraped that idea. Picked up some loom called ''Performatherm'' at a local parts store and it looks like it should make a pretty good harness material. I will use some Raychem DR-25 off the main harness where the connectors branch off. Not a crazy milspec harness or anything like that but its coming along and should look much nicer in the bay.
