Nice one Tristan, is it difficult to do the wiring or more a wire by wire thing and checking continuity each time.

Using PW's guide is fairly straight forward but can get frustrating when wires between different revs are different colour!
Any chance you would have the 4th Ecu plug off the Camry up there?!

You don't hang about!

Looks familiar, I remember doing mine like it was yesterday. That guide is good- I wound't have contemplated doing the conversion without it- especially when all the spagetti spews out), so long as you cross check and use the multimeter, and go about it methodically (Paul withdrew his guide after one or two cases where some plonkers didn't use common sense, and blamed the guide).

Jebus that's a lot of Spaghetti!
Fair play Smurfster for tackling that.
Have you much more to do now once you have the wiring sorted?

Good stuff Tristan. No doubt you are so looking forward to hearing it run, but also enjoying the conversion. Looks like fun!

Can't wait!
I've almost finished the electrics. Pipe work next on the list.
I swapped out the rpm reader last night. 4 cylinder to 6 cylinder.
Here's the part.

Ive a good list of stuff to finish off. Clutch bleeding, gear linkage,subframe, drives, wheels (half sprayed), tidy up pipe work and electrics. I need to put on the downpipes (Brian's) and exhaust! I nearly passed out when she came to life
