Wooo! Nb love!
So far I removed the plastic panel that holds the relays. Seems like it doesn't do much. Used zip ties to hold the three relays together and tuck them in near the head light. (I think this may block some air flow :( )

next will be to make a DIY cold side intake. Removes the bulk of the OEM box. And Remove cruise control. That should clean up that side nicely. Though... The wires (near the drivers fender) are held by clips and seems to have no slack.

On the right side, coolant reservoir, canister, fuel thing-ies, fuse box, and windshield fluid reservoir. And that's about it! :)

Tools used 10MM needles noise pliers wire cutter and re used parts from parts removed

What i did is how i did it not sure if i did it right im a newb at this but hear it goes

All of these things do not cause a CEL so you can pass emissions if your state does not require a sniffer test


Start with this



Remove those 2 hoses



Pull on this thing





Remove that hose twist it and pull, mine was hard to get of but i got it off with some pulls





This is what i am not sure about cut that hose and cut some hose off from the last thing removed




Put that hose in the other hose and clamp them down with the stock clamps and put it on the hose that was hard to remove


Remove the 2 10mm



This is what you are left with



This is what you are left with





FOR MSM owners without a MBC

Remove the bolt and wrap it around the other harness's on the left with the sensor on

Nice! I've done some tucking on my NB as of late and will post up some pics tomorrow. So far I have removed the charcoal canister, power steering delete, moved the injector harness between the upper and lower half of the intake plenum, a coolant reroute and tucked the CAS sensor wiring behind the rear timing belt cover. Looks really clean so far but, it's just the begining!

Figuring out where/how to re-mount these three relays that were originally mounted on a bracket between the OEM front strut brace and chassis (after the AEM CAI install and front strut brace update) was a bit of a challenge - to do it neatly at least.

I had a short length of thin, 25mm wide, aluminium from another job that I figured I could bend somehow into a bracket. I didn't have enough for a trial-and-error approach so grabbed my near-empty box of Vita-Brits and cut it into several 25mm wide strips to try several different brackets and mount points. The best solution was to mount the relays parallell to the DIAGNOSIS box (grey box behind bracket in 1st photo below) on the port side and use angled bends to allow the bracket to mount to existing 10mm bolts - worked out quite well IMHO, i clears the DIAGNOSIS box by a couple off mm and is quite solid.

Next step for me was to remove the A/C pish posh and P/s pish posh. This part was a pain in the ass, For the power steering it involved removing the front bumper to get to the "power steering cooler" witch in my eyes was the most stupid thing ever. you unhook the belts and start removing anything that is connected to the P/s reservoir. Next part was a little harder to remove the A/C **** i ended up taking out the radiator so i could remove the condenser in 2 min instead of trying to get at it and taking alot longer


make sure a shop removes your a/c would want to kill the earth, even if you think you have a leak take it to a shop i did and boy was i in for a surprise when i unbolted a line :roll: remove alll of the lines attached to the a/c crap and done

I think this is the only pic I have of mine, I'll take better pics later.

Passengers side:



Drivers side was tucked too, still need to do the middle harness on top of the manifold, and eventually the fusebox.

Excellent! Keep up the good work!

This is doubling as a weight savings thing for autox...for me at least. And it looks sick!

Already pulled the A/C on my car before reading. Be sure to pull the pin on one of the filler caps to release the pressure of the refrigerant. I simply unbolted the top of the radiator, pulled it out of its resting holes and leaned it back to get to the condenser. I was on a lift while doing the work so it was easy to see; but make sure you pull the mounting bracket for the actual A/C compressor. Its a black object held in by 4 bolts and weighs a solid 5 lbs.

great job so far, this will be a must on my nb. do many of wires need to be extended, if so i was considering buying a second hand complete loom and splitting it up so i have all my wiring the same/correct colours.
