Intake s@3! is slowly arriving.
Cheap fluids for the 'flush'
And then I had nothing to do, I was bored, so I decided to sort out the wiring loom. relocate the ECU inside and tuck all wires inside bar the wiring for the lights, horn, washer bottle etc...
So out comes the dash
For reference, this is what was in the bay originally
Loom feeds though the bulkhead though the pass and drivers side. So need to unplug it from both junction boxes in the footwells
And pull all the s@3! out
This was the picture I was once I pulled everything out. Originally i only planned to move the ecu inside, leaving all the relay boxes in the pay as they were originally. But after seeing how clean this looked, I decided to go full retard.
Loom layed out on the floor
Stripped and radiator fan relay wiring chopped out
Then separate the loom a bit and were left with something like this.
Lights and ECU separated. Then proceeded to sort the drivers side and continue removing unused wires in the process. Airbag, old Altezza ecu wiring (trc etc..) So ended up with something like this. Arrows where it will go through the bulkhead.
Next, unbolted the dash mount. Unbolted the heater stuff and pulled everything back. Removed the aircon condenser hoses. Lifted the center bit of the heater up and fed the loom through there.
Guided the loom in places where the pedals wont come into contact with it, and stuck it down so it wouldnt move. Drivers side plugged back in and all done.
Pass side required a bit more tidying up
Fed the ecu loom to the airbag location. And tucked everything up and away. Taped the relay/fuse box up as a temp measure.
Just to see what it looks like with the dash
The ecu will live here
And this is what we ended up with in the engine bay. Still untidy since the wires arent organised and are just all over the place just now. But they wont be visible at all once the engine is in. Mega clean imho. Some will need to be extended slightly to reach the lights. But not a big issue at all.
And with the aircon pipes removed, it opened up this for the JZ engine loom to be fed though.
All the leftovers....
