Wiring is in process.

Basic harness, TXL wire, techflex with heat shrink labels and dual wall at the branches.    About 1/2 done with the harness feeding the ECU thus far.



This picture shows basically all of the visible harness minus the injectors and coils.    Most of it is hidden under the intake manifold:



The harness is setup with the following, for those curious:

1x crank sensor (ECU)
1x cam sensor (ECU)
1x VVTI control (ECU)
2x oil pressure sensor (ECU + gauge)
2x fuel pressure sensor (ECU + gauge)
2x manifold pressure (ECU + gauge)
1x radiator pressure (ECU)
1x intake air temp (ECU)
2x water temp (ECU + gauge)
1x oil temp (ECU)
2x wideband (ECU + gauge)
1x EGT (gauge)
1x VSS (ECU)
1x backup light (chassis)
1x reverse lockout (ECU)
6x coil (LS coils to ECU)
6x injectors
1x DBW throttle body (ECU)
1x DBW pedal (ECU)
1x flex fuel (ECU)
2x fuel pump control (ECU)
2x fan control (ECU)
1x AC trinary switch (chassis/ECU)
1x AC compressor (chassis/ECU)
1x Alternator (chassis)
1x boost control solenoid (ECU)
1x traction control (maybe, not sure how to integrate with F-Body ABS yet)
1x ECU map control switch (ECU)

Gauges are:
Speedhut:  Speedo (ECU driven), Tacho (ECU driven), oil pressure, water temp, fuel level, something I'm forgetting, voltage maybe?  dunno, it's in my garage, LOL
Other (ProSport?  can't remember): Fuel pressure, boost pressure
Wideband/EGT - Zeitronix, was already in the chassis

I think that's everything...   this is actually a fairly simple build as far as wiring goes, but it still take a while.   I'll be using the stock GM chassis connectors to power everything and route as many signals as possible in the stock harness.   It's funny, because it's the opposite of an LS/LT harness conversion for an RX7, where I'm connecting an F-Body engine harness to another chassis, instead I'm connecting a custom harness to an F-Body chassis harness.   LOL

Anywho, all new GM connectors to tie into the chassis stuff are en route, as is a new OE grommet.    This and the gauges is about it for the car for now as we're going to put it on hold for a little bit while my buddy gets funds setup for the engine build/clutch/ECU/sensors/driveshaft/fuel system/etc.   Once this car gets mothballed for a bit I'll be back to wiring my Mustang up.

nice work!  I wish we were closer, if I build that FB I am talking about in the lounge it would be a cool match up and video

So, lots of progress but no interesting pictures.   The engine harness is almost done;  I have all of the engine side of it finished out (minus the tranny sub harness and the coil sub harness because I don't have coils yet).    The ECU is pinned fully, all that is left is splices for the 5V, reference ground, IGN, relays, etc. and then connections that run back into the interior for all the gauges and such.

Hoping to finish at least the splicing and relay hookups this weekend, and hopefully get the engine bay side chassis wiring (basically fused IGN+ feeds and fan control) done this weekend.   I repurposed the F-Body fan control system to run the Volvo fan (with a Deutsch connector on it now) in single speed mode.   I'm also going to use the ECU to run the transmission pump (apparently the Magnum can have a pump fitted easily?).

Once the wiring is mostly tidied up, I'm going to sort out some of the gauge cluster layout, and then this car is going on vacation while he preps to get the engine/fuel system/electronics purchased and I'll get mine back to do the exhaust, wiring, steering, etc. before the weather gets nice.

Magnum has provision for a mechanical pump mounted in the front cover rather like SS Camaro, we used ours to circulate the oil through the original RX engine oil cooler rad.

I need to update this thread, the car is back at my house under construction.    Fuel system is done, and the engine should be back from the builder (Naber Racing) this week.  Hoping to start final assembly soon and if all goes well, have it running in 6-8 weeks.
