Question SMJ questions

I'm labling all the wires and I'm confused about the SMJ. what is it and what does it do? I got the wiring diagrams and the page that tells me how to use it is missing or something. I've noticed that all of the stuff like rear fog, headlights, blinkers all connect. what do I do with the SMJ?!?!?

It is a junction between harness pieces. It is one massive connector. I kept mine so I didn't have to resolder all the wires together.

Well,

The SMJ does connect the front harness to the bulkhead harness, but it only contains the wires to the engine. the SMJ does Not contain any wires for headlights, blinkers, or rear defrost.

The SMJ part of the front harness is easily seperated from the whole front harness. Sorry for the confusion, but it's actually quite simple once it's unwraped. Now the whole bulkhead harness is a different story.

Like stimpy said, just keep it together so you don't have to solder the additional 30 wires. When I did mine originally, I cut-out the SMJ and shortened the harness by 6 feet! But it makes it a tighter fit and more work, so I suggest leaving the extra length in the bulkhead. Just a note: I leave the SMJ in all the conversions I do, I only have cut it out in mine and the second one I did.

Anyways, Good Luck!

I always cut out the SMJ on swaps I do only because I don't like having the extra wire in the car. I've been kinda lazy with my swap and have NOT removed it yet. It will be removed shortly though, no need to have an extra 4 feet of wire in the car.

Exactly, all it is there for is to make the harness into several moduals so that it's easier to run it through the car on assembly in Japan or to replace if something gets messed up on the harness.

There are plenty of extra loops of wire in my car. Once it is summer and not 20 degrees like when I did my swap (outside), I will probably go through and clean some things up.

supermoose: Sorry, I don't have any JDM diagrams. I haven't dealt with that early of a MY/WRX. Sounds like it could be a Ground.

scobaru: if you're asking me then Yes, mine is without the SMJ and so is the 2nd one I did. But the other 12 all have it and so will the next 4 that are lined up. It just simplifies the installation and there's nothing wrong with keeping the SMJ since it's that way in the WRX. Keep in mind that when you cut-out the SMJ you're cutting some sheilded wire for the fuel injectors. The nice part of retaining the SMJ is that it eliminates possible problems with engine controls. By that I mean if something didn't work properly when the installation is finished, you don't have to check all those wires from the ECU to the engine since they would have been untouched.

Just my $0.02

We have Subaru Manuals (93-02) in the shop. They are quite the useful tool for doing conversions and other Subaru related work
