Can anyone post pictures of the way they routed there wiring in the engine compartment...Esp interested in the driverside where it comes around the back of the engine toward the coil..Do most mount the wiring low or high...Thank you
I routed mine from the back of the engine around the outside of the drivers footbox and under the steering shaft to where it connects to the dash harnesss on the engine compartment side.
If I had it to do again, I'd have drilled a hole in the drivers foot box and routed it into there with some gromets in the holes, then routed the wires out the big rubber bulkhead grommet and taped everything together in one bundle. That would have looked cleaner, I think. With the wires that were cut out of the system, there would have been ample room to push everything through that hole (although the connectors might have been a challenge).
I have quite a few pics of the EFI wiring with the donor harness in the pictures section of my web site. If I was doing it again, I'd probably do as Lee suggested and run the harness that runs across the firewall into the drivers footbox. I've seen some other installations where they have hidden the harness behind the firewall or in an aluminum channel. You obviously want to make it look as nice as possible but honestly you can't see much of it when the body is on.
