So, got half way done, I took off the wiring from both of the cars and about to install the ecm and engine harness, but I have a question. The chassis is 1994 and im putting in a 1990 engine in it. Does that mean I use a '90 engine harness and computer but use 94 wiring harness?
Ill post up some pics later tonight.
Thanks.

use the full mk3 harness. It will plug into the engine just the same as the MK2 harness will.

i'm a stone cold, fearless, harness splicer. :twisted:

use whatever you have and make it work. if you use the mk2 harness with a mk3 chassis you only have to splice 2 connectors - one for the dash instrument cabling and one for the engine bay power, fuse and relay rack. all the spliced wire colors match between the mk2 and mk3.

the only tricky part is getting the coil and ignitor power and ground circuit spliced into the chassis wiring and that's only because there is a monolithic electrical noise snubber and a monolithic diode wrapped into the chassis loom.

if you keep the chassis wiring on a non-gt chassis, you also have to add the yellow wire from the oil pressure idiot light switch to the dash instrument cable connector.

mhm, well I just spliced the connector onto the engine harness. I was left with 2 extra wires that dont connect to anything.
one thing I dont understand is where does the SDL connector goes into. I cant find the right connector for it. And it seemed to easy to plug everything in, is it a trick thing to do or just find the right connector and plug it in?

mhm, not sure I have to check.
But this is the progress so far, got both of the engines off. the car is ready to have surgery! soon to put in the engine.
all is left after is to change all the brakes cause the GT ones are bigger and better :P. Should start. Still deciding on paint or whether I should just leave it as is.

haha sorry bout my before mistakes, posts and pm's. I was just a kid :P

You have big balls...trusting two stacks of bricks to hold up your project car instead of jack-stands....and even bigger balls to do all the work in flip-flops.

I think you should leave it as-is. Looks really nice 4 different colors! :P

Im actually thinking of leaving it multi colored!
The car still won start, I used my friends maf sensor and still does the same thing as before.
Should I tear the car apart and just get a new a wiring harness from the '90 gt and use that?
will all the connectors fit where they are suppose to?
