Edit: Update on 1-2-2016 on page 3 post 60. More cleanup https://my350z.com/forum/media-share...rogress-3.html
Edit: Update on 6-12-2015 on post 37. Man...my engine bay has changed a lot of colors and the wire tuck keeps progressing.

Not quite done, been a long 2 days


Reference to what the harness looked like before (not my car)

Conclusion:
Ton of work and I am not 100% satisfied with the result. Still want to hide some more hoses to make the look final. Engine bay has a lot going on VS a stock car with a wire tuck. Oil catch can, relocated coolant tank ect. Just glad the old ugly harness is gone.

need to tighten the Cosworth bolts and test fire the car tomorrow.

Very nice, I've been wanting to start braiding mine or go mil spec. Keep it up and subd for after pics :thumbup:

Cux350z 11-18-2012 11:35 AM

I have done braiding before. Where you do a special loop so many inches. That is very time consuming but looks good if done right.

Mil spec, not familiar with that.

Added more pics. Sorry for the orientation. Still looks like a mess but once the plenum is on it will all be hidden.

jduet 11-18-2012 12:10 PM

You have hairy azz white dude legs just like me...

In for done pics too

bbs350z 11-18-2012 03:22 PM

hewwo vanillafaces.

progress looks good, in for the final product!

Cux350z 11-18-2012 03:49 PM

More pics added.

Yep, hairy white legs. my wife was asking me about the hairy arm body kit guy, i think she was hoping i wouldnt post that pic just in case someone would point it out...thanks man!

Next step will be the alternator/starter cable and the hoses for the catch can. 90 degree fittings should do the trick. I also need to literally clean the engine bay, take better pics. Iphone and lighting just not doing it.

taywan 11-18-2012 03:59 PM

Looking clean!!

Cux350z 11-18-2012 04:18 PM

^thanks. You know any welders in the area that do small jobs? Need two pipes modified.

freddys 350z 11-18-2012 10:11 PM

looks good. i got a quick question for you. im doing the passenger side body harness and ive come across the crash sensor wire being to short. my research shows "do not splice". and seeing that you already did that tuck, did you run in to this problem? if so what did you do?

im thinking of just relocating the sensor.

taywan 11-19-2012 02:57 AM

I can possibly get some stuff welded. Lmk what it is and ill see.

Cux350z 11-19-2012 04:26 AM

Coolant pipe to remove 3 bungs and aluminum intake pipe to remove 1 bung. Coolant pipes are known to have issues, must be cleaned real well around the area to prevent leaking.

Did not run into that issue. Is the crash sensor wire anything special?


Hell, i spliced the maf. All it had was a twisted pair for the IAT probably(same as any of the pressure sensors) but people say not to splice it. Couldnt de-pin it.

NA&CH 11-19-2012 06:10 AM

Looks great Bud!! This will be my next project. Clean up the bay!

haha, yeah i spliced the maf sensor cable too. im more concerned about setting the air bags off. SO, you did splice the crash sensor?

Cux350z 11-19-2012 01:59 PM

no i did not touch the crash sensor wiring.

Ztouring04 11-19-2012 02:12 PM

Very nice

tribal_visionz 11-24-2012 07:48 PM

Seems like it would be easy to get lost with all the wires.

JDSMotoring 11-27-2012 08:49 AM

nice. in for more progress pics.

VMRWheels 11-28-2012 04:39 PM

Pretty impressive so far!

Cux350z 01-01-2013 05:21 PM

slight teaser pick of what is to come:

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/i...5FF8EB605F.jpg

Next wire project is to extend the oem o2 harness and relocate the oem upper o2 sensor to below and bring the haltech widebands up top. Also will have some wire work on the fan harness since i am replacing the oem shroud.
