Im kinda against moving the rack at this point. I cant roll it due to the rack profile, and the mount would be a bear to unweld, I mostly full welded it. I will see if I do need to modify anything...


And since I had the exhaust off, I took the turbo and elbow to work. Fixed the flange, 1 hole was off...

How about threading the block and then just running a bolt from the back of the transmission into it?

Definitely a possibility. Something I haven't thought of. It would be a pretty large bolt, considering the block is clearanced for a m10 bolt, and an alignment sleeve.

Im trying to not work on anything mechanical on the car right now.

Started going through the CA wire harness. Thinking I may make a Wiring Specialties Connector order. Half the connectors on this harness are broken.

Goal is to figure out how many wires I am actually passing through the firewall so I can order a round bulk head connector for the firewall.

I will take all of the Electrical tape off... eventually. But here is a nice mess of what I managed to remove from the harness.

Managed to strip the rest of what I can remove without soldering...

I dont have AC, so that was a lot of wire I got to remove. There were a few random test terminals... so I deleted those as well.

My goal is to get the wire count going through the firewall to the engine under 47. Right now I am at 43 and I need to add some. But I already figured out how to take 3 out of the equation.

The other thing is, this harness is made for a S13, which has a long engine bay, unlike the 510. The other thing is the S13 has all of its power distribution at the front of the engine bay, but I have relocated all of mine to under the passenger dash. So I have come to the decision that the harness needs to massaged a bit to fit my car. Such a sticky situation.

And I got some new wire crimpers, I hope they work well.

Oddly, I actually enjoy that type of work. I'll be relocating my ECM as well when I put mine back together so I may do a bulkhead connector as previously I only had half a dozen wires going through the firewall.
When I originally modified my harness I probably removed close to half the weight -- maybe even more. ABS, SRS, cruise, auto trans, and even some lighting was all in the original loom.


How is the house sale going?

If I remember correctly Jacob likes doing wiring also.

I do. And I'm not sure why. But it makes things do things, so that is cool.

House sale... IDK. I'm not concerned. I think the price is coming down. My sister/realtor is getting married Friday...

Slow, but sure. Shit getting done.

I like taking breaks away to come back and get good updates.


Either one of you are free to come over and rewire my 521 any time.
I even have the dash out right now for the first taker.

My problem with electricity is I overthink it. Pass, if I can.



Keep up the progress.

Haven't actually done any work on this... But got some cool stuff.

Round connector is in, 47 pin, 4x 14/16/18 gauge wire spots, 43x 20/22 gauge wire spots.

left crimper does 14/16/18 gauge solid terminals, right one does 20/22 gauge solid terminals.

Bottom of the picture shows the terminals, These terminals make really good contact with each other. The crimpers put 8 dents in to attach to the wire.

Good guess. I've been looking bit over for a while. I have all the arms and knuckles too. Just need a diff/axles/sway bar to figure it out. But it appears it won't be too hard to figure it out. I think the shocks/springs might be hardest to figure out.

We have plans for a kit. Trying to make it as simple as possible.
