At this point you might have to buy a small gauge shielded wire and run that. I also stripped a junk yard harness, for the cam and crank wires. What a pain in the ass.

''cracks knuckles'' well its been a while been super super discouraged on my build here i almost sold my car and had it up for sale for a long time i built up and sold a few Honda's on the side while my suby has sat for a long time well its been a year or so and i haven't sold it yet iv gotten it cleaned up a lot more and started fixing all the small things one by one to make me feel better about the car the reason iv been so slow going at this i lost faith in this forum and the friends around me i felt helpless and had nowhere to work on it my self even if i wanted to but enough of that shit i got my momentum back here and wanna finish what i started i don't care how much it cost or how much longer it takes i Have to have this car running good if it kills me iv got a shit load of pics to update ill try and post them chronologically

big thanks to Kimo for the hookup on the rob tune jumper harness setup made things alot easier
Image

got me a set of yellow sti injectors bought the ecu i needed (rob tune 550) and took my intake manifold off for a fourth dam time to sort more wiring
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


this is getting fairly expensive having to keep buying these new every time i pull the manifold off
