also rewired the connector on the bottom right, immob one, to a decent connector and fed the starter and fuel pump circuits still via it.

Should be a whole load cleaner once done.

Yeah I was really trying to get the packaging to work nicely without having to rip too much apart (ha!). Also mines been somewhat of an evolution

A truely pukka job from scratch you'd rip the whole loom out (removing the fuel tank etc), put a PDU in place to run the whole sha-bang like a PDM30, ditch the control box behind the clocks, use the GPIO on a CAN enabled dash to pickup the stalks, soft pad button CAN panel to one side, all sensors into a proper daddy spec ECU. You'd be in 4 figures just in DR-25 :lol:

Yeah looks really nice.

Don't know who would go to the extreme of all of that :oops: :o

Well I proably won't run a membrain panel, but the grey hill ones we use at work are pretty good value. Mines a mix of Dr on external and nomex/hft 5000 on the cabin. Gone a little over board with the
Additional sensors for further proofing running in spares for suspension pots, pressures and wheel speeds for traction control and launch. Also done away with the cable with DBW. So I can run throttle blips on up and down shifts with a clutch pressure sensor

yeah I put a DTM between the loom at the TB, so I can reconfigure it for DBW

right some progress (I'm giving up on merging my threads):

Image

Replaced a joint on my lower front torque steady, rose joint (M12) at one end and poly bushing in the chassis side:

Image

So time to get stuck into sorting the chassis side out:

Image

In place:

Image

Image

Engine loom taking shape:

Image

Merging them is not fun but getting there, MIL plug is next:

Image

While I'm at it putting a remote oil pressure sensor in:

Image

Image

gearbox cooler too, as there were signs of heat related damage, here is the pump:

Image

Iveco rad switch to control said pump

Image

pump is quite cool inside:

spending a fortune on the loom, connectors etc you expect but the wrap adds up too

Bought some RT125 epoxy to seal the boot to the MIL, £40 on a 50ml tube later

did order this though:

Have a chat with Think, but I seem to remember that the gearbox pump needs to be lower than the oil level.

Cheers John, will double check that!

Description online does say "The pump is self priming and can be mounted up to 1.5m above the fluid level."

It'd be a pig to locate low down.

Top effort Tim. What was the catalyst for all this, you threaded a bolt or summat? That kicked off making a complete custom loom, gearbox oil-cooler, more bling, trick diff etc etc. Top marks :cool: good luck over the next few days getting it back together eh!
