Ahhh the fun of splicing wiring harnesses.

Looking good so far, can you take a close up pic of the clearance between the engine and firewall.

I responded to your post on pt for this bit...but here it is again...look under the car where the rear mount should be on the 1gen...the trans will have 2 through bolts where the case halves come together...all the others just go intot he front part of the case...2 go through and have nuts on the other side...a n/a 1gen mount will bolt there, just not sure if it lines up w/ the crossmember, but you should let me know

Oh yeah plenty of room. lol I'm almost done wiring the headlights, turn signals and sidemarkers. Cool thing is that the wire colors are the same, so it isn't that hard, just getting the 1g dash switches and stuff to function like factory.

Thats true, the most annoying part is the dash harness....

But when I did mine on the GC, I decided to wire the power windows so they work without the key in the ignition....something that I hate about cars with power windows!

Now youve got it apart you can modify anything that your not happy with.

And here most of us thought there was far to little space for a KL in there. Looking great Blue.

This thread is relevant to my interests... Subscribed.

Swapping entire harnesses is probably much simpler than splicing into the original. Gauges may not work anymore, but at least the ECU connections will be solid.

For those complaining about firewall clearances on the 2g, be happy (if) you have an MX-6 because the PGT has the engine about 1.5" further back in the bay. Sure, that means plenty of clearance at the radiator, but it's a bitch dealing with anything in the back.

I swapped the dash harness. The ECU is solid. The 2G ignition switch went right in to the 1G key lock cylinder, so that plugged right in. The car cranks. Just debating whether I should swap the chassis harness or just find out what wire goes where. I got the hazard switch to function. Having trouble with the headlight switch though in the off position the headlights are on and with I turn the switch on the headlamp go to brights. I'm following the diagrams HMM.

I would try to use as much of the 2G harness as you can, if that means pulling the chassis harness at least you will have nearly a full 2G harness.

It makes things so much easier down the track when you have to work on the car and you can use the factory wiring diagrams from the 2G rather than having to draw up your own.

I was thinking it would be much easier to switch out the chassis harness and just swap pigtails as needed. The hardest part is getting the dash switches to function properly. I got the turns signals and hazards. But the headlights, when the switch is off the lights are on when the switch is off the lights are bright, but the lights never come up.
UPDATE: i forgot that the high beam switch is in the turn signal switch. The headlight switch control the motors and the lights.
