what year is your car? if it's a 94-97 you don't need to buy anything. the wiring harness runs along the passenger door and can easily be removed to move the ecu up to the front.

That's the cost of materials. The labor involved in making the harnesses is worth more than that. Maybe you could buy the materials and pay a mexican to build you one.

If you want to DIY a DB37 you can get connectors from FRY's or radioshack. Though I'm pretty sure you can buy a premade cable for $10 or less somewhere.

One thing you need to be careful with cables - they may not have all the connectors if they're designed for computer applications, and they may not be very thick wire. An automotive harness will typically use 20 gauge wire at the very least; you may get thin phone-cable type wire in a computer cable.
