I'm looking to relocate my ms3 basic to the glove box/passenger airbag area. I've got the part numbers in this post in an onlinecomponents shopping cart, they have a 50 dollar minimum and of course don't sell TXL or GXL wiring so I'm pissing money away buying from them.
So here are the current options for extending the harness as I see them:
-Full DIY - Onlinecomponents for the connectors and pins ($50) and about ($70 in wires elsewhere) - $130 Total
-Buy AEM harness extension and splice extension wires in using solder grip connectors - $129 for patch harness (
) - $50 dollars for wire, $20 connectors - $200 total
-Buy Boomslang Custom Patch Harness 40" - $450 total
-Relocate ecu using factory harness. It seems that the engine harness will fit but one of the 3 connectors doesn't have wiring that's long enough. So you'd have to splice in extensions for the one connector.
Any splicing I do to any patch or oem harness will be done with soldergrip connectors.
So dafuq do i do??? Assume I have the dash fully stripped already, cause i do.
-Boomslang - easiest but holy ***** expensive
-DIY - PITA but cheapest
-Buy AEM and splice - pretty easy even though middle of the road expensive - Does splicing in extension wires into a patch harness like this add significant enough impedance to matter?
-Splice extensions into factory harness - easiest in terms money but splicing into harness meh. Impedance issues again?
