These are the connectors that go from my main 94 harness to the dash harness


This is the dash harness in question.


These are what I believe are the corresponding plugs that are on my 95 harness compared to what I need.

I am pretty sure I will be putting my MS there above my radio.


I had a picture of everything I had removed so far, but my camera did not save it or something. I will get another one tomorrow.

This is some sort of track only or completely stripped street car and you're keeping the full dash? Is there a reason?

Completely striped street car, going to track only in a few years. Keeping a dash in right now to keep some civility and so in the future if I have to meet certain rules for some odd class I can.

Ah. Lame.

Really I do not want to give up the radio yet. That is a big thing. I also want to keep my center console for cup holders and I keep my ipod in the storage place.

Typical american. You'll probably upgrade the cup holder so you can store a super big gulp. Thats the benchmark car companies use after all.

I don't have 7-11's down here so no super big gulp. It makes me sad.

Since I am missing part of the harness that I need I decided to put in my 1.6 dash with my old dash harness and see if I can get the car running until I find the other section.




What does this connector go to? It is under the dash and is on the passengers side next to the door. I cannot find anything over there with that type of connector.


Also this white part with the spring behind it on the Steering wheel. Is the white part and spring needed?

The white thing behind the steering wheel has the pegs on it that fit into the wheel to make the turn signals go off. That connector looks like either one of the ones that goes to the door, speakers or mirrors, or the blower motor (my best guesses anyway).

The random connector does in deed go to the blower motor. It has been idk 6 months since I took the blower out, so I kind of forgot about it.

I hooked my stock CAS back up to my MS today instead of using the VVT Controller to provide the signal. I will be making a new MSQ this weekend and when I get back from NoVA next week I will see if my car starts. I am really hoping it does and I can drive it next Wednesday.

So after a month of not touching my car because of cold *** weather, new job, and being a lazy *** I finally went out and got some work done on it.

Firstly I got my coolant hose hooked up with a re-stricter in it. So no more heater core at all, yippee.

Secondly I finally installed my Walbro 190 fuel pump that has been sitting in my garage since July.

I installed my new steering wheel and my Momo Super Cup on the drivers side.



Finally I think I figured out why I was not getting spark. I had my 4 trigger wires wired up incorrectly for sequential spark. So I fixed those today. I have about half a dozen more wires to hook up and then charge the battery and see if my car starts. Hopefully later this week I get it started. I finally have the motivation to do it.

A big Sharpie would work wonders on temporarily making that seat look less... harsh. Hehe.

If you still need any harness pieces or steering column switches, I've just recently removed some from the '93.

For the deal I got on the seats from Phil, I can deal with a little bolster wear. Although a sharpie is not a bad idea. I might try it out.

So for a little bit of an update. I had Y8s mod my MS so now it will work with NB sensors this past weekend. So now I just need to hook up the NB sensors to my stock CAS wiring and see if it starts.

It started briefly last week but would die right away. I know it starts so now it is just a getting the right settings in TS.

I will be hooking up my NB sensors this week sometime.

On a very positive note. I sent out a large check to TurboTim today for the following pretty piece of hardware.

I wired in my NB sensors this morning and tried to start my car. It ******* started, but would not stay running. I am just happy that it started fine. I busted out my sharpie and tape and took some datalogs, now to go over those and figure out why it won't stay running.
