been working on the loom, its nearly done, just need a throttle positon plug , a lambda plug and power interface connector to use the existing power connections under the scuttle panel. The wiring notes qpeng supply are very easy to understand! there are loads of different engine codes listed with the corresponding colours (mine matched up perfectly) id recommend it to anyone.

Tommorow i will do continuity checks again just to ensure i have no shorts.

some of the loom to start off with

Looking good dude. Cool What type of tape is that? Looks like it has a weave in it.

self amalgamting tape. the stuff is brilliant. Its slightly textured and very slightly tacky.When you wrap the loom youre meant to stretch it a bit and it grabs hold of itself and fuses together. Its really strong as i wanted to change the position of a wire but couldnt pull the stuff apart! its water resistant too and has a rubbery feel to it

I normally use the fabric stuff, much like the standard Corrado wiring uses, but if this stuff is better I may have to look into that when I do my loom....

So my shopping list is

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

here is a bunch of other little bits i needed (all genuine of course )

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

thermostat sat in place

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

o-ring and outlet bolted back on top

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

o-ring and water flange bolted back up

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The throttle body fitted (ignore the blue hose haha - as the pipes at the top are unused i just stuck a bit of hose in there to make it look functional)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

an adaptor i got to allow the fitment of the two g60 oil pressure sensors

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

finally the n75 valve its the "f" version ( i know there are j and h versions and they all have different characteristics. Picked this up for a fiver and its new so i cant complain)

cheers mate, didnt need any tool, once all the leads are crimped or soldered they just push through into the housings and the click in place - piece of cake Smile
