    What a mess.



    I laid out my EJ207 harness in the same layout that it would be going into the vehicle, just to visualize it.



    Started ripping out the big guy.







    It's like my car is spilling its guts.. this is the old wiring harness.

    '

    But hey.. it's worth it. All for this little ECU.



    Nestled in and ready to play.



    Time for supper.. then back at it. Would love to get the harness done tonight.

    My biggest issue right now is the radiator is.. well, taking up too much room. I didn't foresee this as a problem but between the radiator and the fans the belt for power steering is rubbing the fans - and that's an understatement.

    Thinking I'll lose the A/C in order to move the rad forward the 1-2" if I can. Otherwise not quite sure how I want to pursue it yet.

    why not just buy a slim rad? losing AC would be terrible lol

    also do you not have to worry about immobilizer issues?

    Definitely tempting - I really am not keen on losing A/C. May just leave the belt off for the time being and do exactly that, unless I can figure something out about it.

    And that's a good question - something I've been curious about but never really checked into. But all keys are standard keys up until 2004 - 2005 they switched over.

    Not until 05 - so I'm good!

    Started getting the front of the vehicle tidied up



    Check out that sweet steering wheel





    Shot from the rear



    Otherwise having issues with the rad fitment. The aftermarket rad with the fans is too thick. Friend lent me a stock one and it fits well.

    why not invest in a slim fan? they are usually drastically much more shallow then OEM ones, i wouldnt want to ditch the aftermarket rad for the better cooling efficiency

    Slim fans will likely be the way to go, you're right. Seems like such an absurd amount of space used up for the current fans. For the mean time Ill see if I can borrow the OEM rad just to get it up and running.
