Default write-up for hiding engine bay wiring...

can anyone give a write-up for hiding all the wires in the engine bay of an EG? i.e. headlight wiring, engine harness wiring, etc.

any help would be appreciated.

Bauley or Ricey do not move this please. Ive been getting way too many PM's on how i do the wiring on the engine bays.. BTW u guys are awesome mods

here is one i did this past summer for a HT member
Decided to help a fellow H-T member with his new car. and his filthy engine bay. came out 100x better than what it started with. Hid alot of wiring and rerouted the wiring. cleaned it up alot. Enjoy

This is what i removed
Ripped out the AC system. pump, condenser, lines ect. everythings gotta come out.
Heat shields on the exhaust manifold
intake resonator

Wiring that was re routed. No wires were shortened or lenghtened. when extending or shortening wiring you can effect the resistance in that line. and could affect how your engine performs

Passanger side Headlight, horn, turn signal, ground box harness was taken and ran in the inner fenderwell gound box was hooked up to the 10mm bolt that held on the intake resonator.

Driver side headlight turn signal ground box harness was ran through the fenderwell and held up with a open 10mm spot by the windshield washer fluid resivoir.

Distributor wiring was taken off the clip and hide under the intake manifold

Driver side harness was removed and tucked underneath the battery/fuse box. and no i did not extend any of the wiring.

Passanger side harness was removed off the clips and tucked in the corner under the Slave cylinder and zip tied down

Fuel injector wiring. the box was removed off of the injector harness. the heat shrink was removed off of the wires. becareful doing this not to cut the wires. and the clips were ran up through the gaps in the intake manifold runners.

Cleaning
removed battery and covered all electronics.... dizzy, alternator, Harness clips with bags and zip tied them.
Sprayed the entire engine bay, engine, firewall with simple green 75 SG/25 H20. let it sit for 5-10 mins and rinsed off with garden hose. dry the engine bay with shop towels or shop rags.

i used 2 cans of gunk for the engine and transmission for the heavy grease. do the same steps as i did with simple green.

Enjoy guys..

Here is what we had to start with.

Painting bay Flat black.. it was turning PINK



Damn Hard Lines



Battery and fuse box.. where'd it go? I dunno



Fuel pressure gauge line. Throttle Linkage, Fuel Return, ANd HARDLINES!



new intake manifold on the way to get rid of those damn vaccum block offs



Take me to your leader... HID's warming up in the fogs straight custom did..lol

That is a lot of work and time, but the results speak for themselves. That is beautiful looking. I might have to do some work in my engine bay. I wonder how it would look done to a LS/VTEC turbo EG?

Lighting wires are ran through the fenderwell's

What's your reason why you want to do this? Preference...car show? I was just curious to know.

i'm assuming appearance there is no other reason, other than having a full out race car, which you would make a new harness pretty much anyways.

Be careful when extending wires.. some have shielding on them.

sheilding is a form of protection.. its needed for sensitive wires that carry a signal.. o2, CYP ckp sensors are all sheiled.. if these are not shielded they could pick up electrical noise and give improper sensor readings
