WTF is a CD ? Is that one of those old fashioned things that come in sleeves ?

Well the UPS man came yesterday and dropped me off some much needed terminals to finish off my engine loom.

Image

He also had some more Raychem DR25 3/4" heat shrink to do the looming and main runs. The main run isn't done with double and you don't want glue backed heat shrink as it reduces the flexability and is a PITA to get the long loom into.

Image

So engine manifold loom was done.

And finally I could close it up and put the last connector on

Image

Then just when I thought the day couldn't get any better I found another box at the door with some other needed parts ...

You're one to talk - finished my Manx yet?
p.s. you don't need to over-engineer everything on it like above so that it never gets finished.
A Subaru wiring harness like the ones that work on a million cars per year will do just fine thanks.

Hey Brad, so where did u end up mounting the ECU and associated fuses etc?

I've been playing around with the idea of putting the ECU in a weatherproof box, but haven't come up with a workable solution yet - can't seem to find a suitable "out of the way" location to put it :oops: Did u mount the ECU to the lid of the box, or have some sort of bracket in the base.

Also, love the idea of using weather pack connectors - that'll stop and moisture ingress :lol:

Ok, so if u haven't already worked it out, I'm fishing for ideas/inspiration :roll:
I may not have gone where I intended to go ... but I've ended up where I needed to be. :mrgreen: Douglas Adams.

Mine is no good to you as it is all custom and the Motec ECU's are water proof :)

Here is Bucks ..

Ok, thanks Brad. That's helpful, although I might considering mounting everything slightly higher - I have a "flooding" issue anywhere around water :oops:
