You gotta get on the trail to get stuck to need that pretty little thing!!!    :wub:

 

But seriously.  Harbor Freight sells a cheap little deally that you can plug into your winch and have it be remote via a key fob.  Cool stuff.

So, Had a friend over today. Gave him the tour of my pile of parts.

Man I need help ripping the harness down. EULOGIOUS, where are you? LOL

I know, I know. lol(Pretty sure he has used his man parts proper, and is doing the right thing:})

This wiring has made the Stop sign hit me in the face. damnit ...

 

Well, I did see some surface rust forming. DAMNIT!!!!Time to get moving!

 

I want to be driveable by the Christmas tree run. Might happen.lol

I have a lot to do . I am trying to cut down all of my lists .Just have a lot going on.

 

 

I at least need to finish my welding, so I can paint stuff. I did decided to change a couple things. AGAIN. Damnit mang , I just wanted to build something I wanted! LOL

I am stoked to be building what I WANT!

I can't wait to get back to it.

cheers

How is that Scott?

I like help I do not have to pay for.LOL

 

 

 

So I have been widdling down the harness for a few days. Just trying to identify things I do not want , like the AC stuff. Which incidentally is tied into the fans. So, I isolated the fans so that I could use the plugs later on. I will  be running a stand alone system for those, on a switch. So, with the Fans , and AC  out of the way, on to more!

DOH~!

So I have an ECM pinout that I am looking at from xcceleration.com , And the wiring diagram I found on some OTher board.

 

Hopefully I do all this thinning right. It all seems so straight forward, but everything is tied into each other.

Guess we'll see. lol

cheers

Just an FYI (only if you don't ALREADY know), the 1995 has a unique pinout on the ECU and is NOT interchangeable w/ other OBD2 ECU's. I learned this in my swap project AFTER I had the harness prepped and installed. Not a HUGE deal, but it's good to know. There are some misleading pinout diagrams out there.... 

 

1995 is unique..... Made for a PITA for me on some levels.... 1996-99 is all the same......

 

Be cautious where you get pinouts....

 

I'm not telling you how to do your build, just sharing my experience......

I did not know that Spencer.Thanks for the heads up.
I have pretty much just been eliminating what I don't need from the plug-ins back.

I don't really need to negate anything except non-essential systems , so, I SHOULD be alright.

But that is good to know.

If I mess up I will just get another harness and not cut anything ! I'll just stuff it up under my dash lol

cheers

Do you still have a pinout for that year?

 

 

I actually did some clean up last night in the shop.Got some toob thrown at her for the new dash bar.

cheers

Been busy with work and family.I am doing little things when I get a few minutes here and there.

Got the dash bar in, cleaned up some welds , and trying to figure out the next steps..

 

I really want to try an get another harness already trimmed down from someone.This wiring thing confuses the hell out of me , AND I am pretty sure I already messed up the harness I have because of the wrong pinouts.

 

Thats where I am at.

cheers

The obd 1 stuff is as solid as it comes. And literally they will run anything you hook them up to. I ran a phase 2 ej25 on a stock ecu, I know people have ran a phase 1 ej25, earl was running his franken motor with something like 12:1 cr. even red devil was running something like mid 20s psi of boost with nothing more then a piggy back.

They also have a good code flashing system and if you wanted even more there is that select monitor thing which was subarus attempt at a obd2 style connection pre obd2. I know you can even data logging with the select monitor thing.

About the only thing that would be nice is if you were doing something like a wrx ecu, just because the super aftermarket avalible in ecu tuning ports.
