That loom is amazing we have used it at work for ever I have personally tested it for work at as low as -50c and as high as 100c and it is awesome we have some harnesses at work that have been used in all types of conditions over the last 5 years and the loom still looks awesome. My personal favorite is to use that and at the ends or seems where the harness splits use the self sealing tape.

Is that an engine or an operating table?

Hey Vlad, how did you get the inside of your overflow tank so clean? Did yours just never get dirty?

Mine's awful. Have to pop the cap to see the level inside. Would love to be able to see the level with a glance.

BUMPING my own old thread to say that the silicone stuff is still going strong, and I think I'm going to re-do the rest of the harness with it, most specifically the 2 VVT wires you can see on the end, as I believe I have a problem with them and will be re-doing them.

Oh and the thupercharger is long gone and turbo is going in very shortly

I've used WireCare.com in the past with good results.

Lots of variety.

Are you guys using the braided split loom and silicone self sealing tape just at the ends? 18psi's COP harness looks like it is just all wrapped up with silicone tape, is that right? (I am about to make my COP harness) and how much silicone tape would a Toyota COP harness require?

THanks!

ignore the injector harness, that was before I even discovered silicone tape. that was with regular tape - weak sauce.

Post #42 shows my end result using corrugated tubing and silicone tape. it works great

some others use the stuff you're talking about, also with good results. I'm not a huge fan of it cause it doesn't match the rest of the wiring on the car, which is rubber/plastic and not braided material.

So, corrugated tubing wrapped 100% with silicone self fusing tape?
Looks good!

Thats what I used. But I'm no wiring expert at all. Works great for me though
