So if I was going to go into business of selling this harness to the public. I would take a trip down to a local junkyard and maybe pull one or two harnesses from some similar vehicles. Now that I have this harness mapped at my leisure I would strip down one or two harnesses and put some fancy labels on the connections clean it up and put it in a box. I would then throw my advertisement out onto the web someplace asking that you send me your harness and I would converted over so that you can use it in your buggy once your harness arrives I'd make sure that it is the correct harness and send you an email that I'd get started on it right away. I would then throw a shipping label on one of the other harnesses that I've already converted and tested.. You would probably be impressed with my quick turnaround time. You would be amazed on how well it works. Then at my leisure I would take your harness and in a few hours strip out all the unused wires cleaned it up with some pretty labels on the ends and put it into another box for the next person. The going rate is somewhere between $3-$700 for the service.

There it is my friend.. There's nothing magical... I don't know anybody... I don't have any special equipment..

I'm not trying to knock the service. I am very happy that it is out there. Without this service and people that did exactly the same thing that I did most of the technology that is available today would not be available to most of us.

I just wanted to share with you how it's done... That's all.

Hope you enjoy my build

Dalton

Most people don't have that special assembly bench and assembly seat. Very Happy
I think those services exist because most people are intimidated by the amount of wires. I noticed the fuel pump were you injecting the Dr. Pepper or the beer? Careful I hear the don't mix. Very Happy

To be honest with everybody... I was planning on converting over an ecoTec 2.4L fly by wire system. I was going to build a simple jig on 4 x 8 sheet of plywood to put the harness on, market all out, clean it up, box it up and sell them on eBay to recover my out-of-pocket expense maybe make a buck or two. but I really didn't want to mess with the thermostat that pokes out the back of the motor. The rest of it wouldn't of been a problem the mess with I have to admit it sure is a good-looking motor..... I looked at the Honda motors and they had all sorts of stuff poking out the back in the motor set, which knock them out. I Remembering how nicely that Subaru motor fit in my car and how awesome it looked.. The newer Subaru motors have the intake manifold hanging over the back of the motor so I would have to change the intake manifold.. Didn't really want to mess with it.. From 2002-2004 the intake manifold hung over the the rear of the motor about an inch.. But it was a cable driven throttle body.

Dalton,

Great job on the wiring. Good to see someone who does their own work and enjoys doing it not just to sell something to us folks that don't have the skill or time to do somthing like this. With all the engine changes going on there does seem to be a market for wiring harness kits.

Keep at it and I will see you in the dirt(from behind you)

Thanks John!
I believe 99% of you have the skill set to do the work yourself and be successful. And I will be honest there are times when I do a wiring harness I want to throw it all away and buy somebody else's work.. What keeps me going is that I know I can do it and that it would be more of a pain in the butt to find someone else out there to give me the quality that I demand, there's nothing worse than trying to troubleshoot a problem in the dirt. And there's no harder person to blame than myself for screwing it up.

I don't believe there's much of a market right now for 1994- 2000 Subaru wiring harness but if anybody thinking about making this conversion now would be a good time to reach out to me and let me know because once I seal this harness and grafted into my car it wil get really expensive for me to copy it..!!?? I don't know maybe I have a line on a harness that I happen to see just lying there in the junkyard maybe I'll swing back by their pick it up for about 20 bucks strip it and tag it and put it in a box at least I can use it as a backup if something nasty happens to my harness.

Dalton

It has been killing me waiting to install my Subaru motor.. I took the Baja out a few times to chase rabbits and I've found that if the car is completely unloaded with only me and it, it does pretty good bouncing around the desert.. But now it's time to get busy.. I'm going to start the disassembly process this afternoon. I'm going to put on my 930 stub axles and maybe pull the VW motor.. I'm going to prep the motor for long-term storage I'm probably going to pull the carburetor off and blow it out with compressed air to make sure that all the fuel is out of it. I'm going to change the oil and then put it in my storage container. I will need the motor for my initial inspection for when my transfer goes through.

This is a complete 930 kit.. all my CV have race cages and under size balls.

My stub axles and my CV's are made in Germany not China. My bearing seals are double seals and are also made in Germany.

you can still get quality parts you just have to know where to look.
