Finally installed my oil cooler lines/tree and cooler. now it's ready for engine wiring and to mount some beefier bumper mount bolts.




and started measuring the exhaust/downpipe situation. going to be 3inches all the way back

Now onto the wiring nightmare, had to strip out the stock z24i engine wiring harness. hopefully I don't need any plugs off it.









setting up my mobile soldering station

seeing as this harness is fuckery as it's connected to the engine AND the interior I previously cut it because I was thinking I can send away and get a plug and play. BUT apparently that didn't happen.

so now im trying to re-construct what I need and what I don't.





got the harness line and the ecu where I want it to be






I actually made a alt/battery harness (combined the oem and an extra rb25 one I had laying around). also created a new battery cable and made a master negative cable for all the accessories.




got a master block to house all of my fuses.





and here is were we are now... got to separate, extend, and cut this to fit!!

coming along with more wiring , thinking I finally got what I needed extended and cut what I needed cut.




and also installed the alarm horn too. got the right length of my o2 sensor also.





cleaned up my "happy" corner





so next up was the ignitor/coil setup. apparently the z24i one is different, so I had to source a 240sx coil and ignitor, using the z bracket...

so this is my first custom swap. and this wiring was a bitch in the first place, so I opted for the nifty can-am box that makes Nissan swaps a snap.






after fabbing up a custom bracket I finally got a place to mount this.




after the easy to follow wiring diagram it was working








the other side was used for the fuel pump relay







here is my map sensor/iat sensor(for the moment) set up.






got the first piece of my downpipe fabbed up, cleared the brake master cylinder.











and I need to wire up my knock sensor

How is this project coming along? Im currently stuffing a 5.3 into my 1987 2 door pathy. We are running into similar problems! including rust under the rear seats.
this was a good read hoping to hear how it turned out
