So I made a little more progress with the wire tuck. I got to the point of installing my firewall plate and the HDP-20 connector hole ready for final install.
I would suggest getting a second harness if you can. You will feel more productive if you don't have to tear your car apart to do the harness.. Plus IMO I think you can plan better with comparison layouts.I've always loved cleaned up engine bays/wire tucks. Might make this part of my winter project on my NA. It looks great!
Its been a while since I talked about my wire tuck and what I did. I kinda gave up going back and fixing the text walls I first made.
My new/redone tuck is quite nice, minimal extending of wires and routing of everything puts the freedom of how you want to handle things in your hands. If I over extended wires I left them like that instead of cutting even more, I wanted wiggle room.
My Fender grommets are from AutoZone, They are for Oil filler Grommets Like 5$ for two.
Firewall I used a DEUTSCH HDP-20 - 29 Pins 12-16-20 AWG
**EDIT** I will have to double check a few, I threw away the paper after I was done. Going off memory. I will take more accurate pictures here soon. =)
Ill take a picture with everything in testing place tomorrow <3
IRTB 1.6 92' Miata Running MS2 vMS3.0 Board (Launch Control Mod/Flat Shift)
I eliminated tons of wiring due to stand alone ECU and my car has no options. <3
I also shortened my hood cord to about 1.5 ft and made it a pull release near my bumper/fender.
ABS - Cruise - AC - Power Windows - Power Antenna - Center Console Light - Ignitor - Air Flow Meter - Ignition Coil - 02 Sensor - Idle Speed Sol Valve - Purge Sol Valve - Power Steering Press Switch - Door Switches - Warning Buzzer -
AEM Oil Temp Gauge (Spliced 12v from WHT/RED Pin 1B - Grounds go to 2D/2C) Wideband Gauge (Same as Oil Temp) GM IAT (Pin 2P - Ground 2D)
Fuel Pump override (Pin 2O to BLU/RED after Circuit Opening Relay, direct to fuel pump harness(Driver side foot well))
FYI Remember any aftermarket sensors ground to JC-02 (ALL Sensor Grounds go here)
JC-01 - 3 wires to place it next to the foot well fuse box.
Ground C - Untouched, but moved to Main Fuse box mount.
JC-02 - Untangled from loom, extended 2 wires. Placed at Main Fuse box mount.
Pass. Retractr Plug - All wires about 15"
Pass. Headlight Plug - 6" Extension
Pass. Blinker - 12" Extension
Main Relay - Untangled via cutting ground on separate relay.
All other Relays were untangled and placed next to steering column.
Fan - Added about 6 inches.
Windshield Wiper Motor - 8"
Windshield Washer pump - 16"
Brake Fluid Sensor - 4"
Diagnostic Connector - Untangled Grounds, attached to Foot well Fuse Block (Where the Hood release cable ran through a white attachment, it slips right onto it!)
I moved the POS+ battery cable into the cabin down the passenger side door pinch weld in those plastic protectors and then to the transmission tunnel.
HDP-20 Connector: Oil Pressure, Oil Temp, Crank Angle Sensor, CoPs, Wiper Motor, Injector Harness (Coolant/injectors), TPS, GM IAT
Transmission Tunnel close to firewall: Starter and exciter wire, Alternator (Both), Wideband 02, Neutral Safety Switch, Reverse Switch.
Driver Side to Fender: Driver Side Lights and Re-tractor, Blinker and Poser, Cooling Fan, Horn, Brake Fluid Level
Passenger Side to Fender: Pass. Side Lights and Re-tractor, Blinker and Poser, Windshield Washer Pump(Sitting in Cowl)
Pictures -- Feel free to PM me with any questions.
Any chance this is still available?I'm wanting to see if there is any interest on extremely detailed wire tuck and delete 'mods'. I'd be doing this on my free time since working on cars is really my only hobby along with physics. These write-ups would include descriptions of exactly how parts and systems operate relevant to the write up (personally written by myself) so, that way the reader has a more comprehensional understanding of what they're working on and how they're affecting their car's original state. Along with the description, there will be diagrams if necessary to further introduce and explain systems and parts to aid to a visualization of how the systems and parts operate. In my write-up's, I will be guiding you on the how-to's as if you were a 16 year old kid with his first car.--They'll be write-up's for NA dummies.
Just lmk if you're interested. If there's enough interest I'll definitely look into doing these write-up's now and then and leave them in my sig for cr.net members to use.
