Mega Squirt high quality custom harnesses

Recommended Posts

The problem with the Z31/S130 turbo stock harness is the ECU plugs are not available. I tried to find pins to replace the original stock ones and reuse the body of the connector but have yet to find any.

 

For the money you would probably be better off to sell the JWT setup and upgrade to a modern stand alone. If you were running a Z32/R32 or newer ECU I would consider upgrading to NisTune

Just got my l28et harness and MS from FricFrac in the mail. 100% quality. There is no way i could have built this to half the quality he has. If your worried about your wiring abilities or just want a high quality wiring harness without the sweat, this is the way to go! I will post photos once the install is complete.

 

Thanks again FricFrac! :2thumbs:

Hey guys - sorry about not being available but I am back making my high grade mil spec harnesses and plug and play systems (and I mean mil spec - not just the phrase people throw around in the automotive industry now adays :( )

 

If you have any questions feel free to ask or give me a call directly at 250-896-5930.

If you don't define it then you're kind of just throwing it around like everyone else.  "Military" does not necessarily mean "high quality".  Most of us respect the military, but "mil spec" is just another standard set of specifications.  To be precise you need to give the spec number.  "mil spec" for a desk lamp might not  be the spec you're looking for.

Fair enough - let me rephrase that then:

 

I use Mil Spec wiring (if you want the part numbers I can list them).  That is Teflon coated and often silver plated (depending on the Mil Spec number of course) wiring.  It is heat and chemical resistant and can carry up to twice the current of lower grade wiring of the same gauge.  It is excellent for engine bays because it is virtually impervious to the effects of gas and oil - it will not become brittle and break when exposed to these conditions over time as do most other types of insulation.

 

I'm an Electronics Engineering Technologist and worked for the Military for 15 years in electronics during which time I have built and repaired countless wiring harnesses and connectors according to Mil Specs.  Base on the knowledge of those systems and my training I design my harnesses for maximum noise immunity BEFORE it ever makes it to the ECU.  A lot of companies are happy to let the software take care of (most of) the errors produced by noise.  The engine bay is not only a harsh environment physically but also electrically.  There is a lot of noise induced into sensor lines.  I use Mil Spec (again numbers provided if that has any use to anyone) shielded wiring for ALL sensors and a properly designed grounding system throughout the entire harness.  I'm trained in Mil Spec soldering, connectorization, metrology, noise immunity, etc.

 

Typically when someone says their harness is Mil Spec it just refers to the use of Mil Spec wiring and/or connectors NOT the above techniques which do produce a very high quality product.  My products have been around for years - ask anyone who has one about the product and/or support and I'm sure you'll find that statement to be true.

 

Hopefully that clears up any confusion.
