FYI, your wiring harness is racist as it is installed in the car... The white plugs go towards the front of the motor, and the black plugs go in the back.

also, to the people who've deleted their abs, when you delete the connector for it, what do you do to the harness portion? take it out of the ECM connector?

I'm curious, i was thinking the ECM would either notice that the lines weren't giving it a reading and throw some kind of light, or something?

I was wondering that because I wanted to delete AC and wondered if you could just delete the lines from AC, and other things, if it wouldn't cause a cel, or the ECM to act stupid.

bump...

What gauge wire did you guys use for the power wire coming out of the fuse box on your relocation? The stock wire I believe is 8 gauge. I used 8 gauge to extend it, but i'm trying to figure out some issues with my car and want to make sure this isn't one of em lol.

Has anyone had a chance to use a ChaseBays harness? I'm thinking I'd like to pick one up to cut my downtime.

You have to send your OEM harness in to them, which is what I am trying to figure out right now. The basic engine harness comes right out. The part that runs through the plug on the firewall is wired into a harness that runs all over the damn car including the doors. I don't know what we are going to do or how to solve that problem without taking anything and everything apart.

I just placed an order on Friday with them for the top of the line Raychem Mil Spec harness for a race car we are building.

Going to sort out tomorrow how this is going to work with getting them what they need.

Adam,

I thought the harness came P&P, I didn't get the detail about shipping your harness off the car from them through our communication. I'm not looking to completely re-wire the car, instead I'm looking to tuck the engine bay and keep the remaining parts of the car as "Daily Driver" as possible. ChaseBay's Raychem harness looks very nice, however I don't think my car will ever require a milspec connector and related bits.

You will still have to send the engine harness to them as they need to use the clips from it for the new one. I suppose if you keep the harness plugging in, in the same location it would be a simpler process but not be as "clean". If you look at the way it's ran stock, some of the connectors come off the harness out the firewall, and some off the harness on the drivers side fender area. I would think the firewall connectors would have to remain stock than.

Let me know how it works for you I am curious.

That is unfortunate... Here I was hoping for a completely "Plug and Play" installation. At the moment I'm not at home with the car, so I guess I'll have to give the guys at ChaseBay's a call and see what they would reccomend. Otherwise I may have to figure out a way to tuck the wires on my own.
