Custom Chassis Harness


Recommended Posts

Hey,

I have a 180sx I'm building for track only use with an LSX motor. It has no wiring at all in it, and I am going to wire it up from scratch, but I have found some universal chassis harnesses on the net for sale. Here is the one I'm looking at http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-890021/

Just wondering if any of you guys that have done full chassis harnesses, which route did you go, and any other harnesses that might suit a 180sx better. For the price, a full custom one made from scratch wouldnt be much cheaper, plus the time it takes to make it!!

I do heaps of them for circuit car builds.

I've tried those universal looms and they never work out as well as a custom made loom.

Everything they use is available in better components and you can integrate the loom into the car properly.

If you have a good electrical understanding it's not hard to nut out what needs to he done.

I usually supply a wiring diagram with cars I build so tracing potential problems down the track is simple for the owner

Thanks Risking. Have you got any good websites where I can purchase auto electrical gear, such as plugs, cable, flasher units, relays, fuse boxes. My local town has a huge mining tax on everything, much cheaper to buy from a major city based company and posted here.

If you wouldn't mind do you think you could please send me a copy of some wiring diagrams via email? Just a basic one, that I can get half an idea from. I can follow diagrams, but from scratch I would not know where to start. Feel free to PM me, thanks

    • My bottom end was rebuilt... so I think it's standard? Or refreshed.. standard? I didn't do it - I bought it with a lot of receipts but it has new bearings, new pump and was re-assembled. Apparently I have the standard flow, standard pressure pump. I did notice the oil pressure for a LS at idle is quite low, but not critically bad, I am happy that it's at about 28psi now (that my gauges work/don't leak). I would have probably specced the high pressure one, but I'll admit my ignorance after making my other post, I don't see how the pressure spring changes things. Given the pressure is a resistance to flow... high flow should also = high pressure, and your oil pump specifications should be dictated by how the engine is built (hence the sincere thankyou video man)
    • my first time on the track, just after getting the 32. tyres were 3yr old NT01's, rotors were cactus, pads were street pads. You can see the vibrations when I hit the brakes lol. After this is when I put new BDA rotors, Hi Temp Brake fluid and Intima type 2 pads. Wow what a difference
    • I second the recommendation to use a power bleeder. Pressure on the cap, if you want you can try some vacuum on the bleeder too with a hand pump. Pressure is needed on the cap to make sure that everything only goes one direction instead of potentially getting air sucked into the bleeder. 
    • Which one do you use? Your bottom end is still standard isn't it?
    • I've had a few turbo cars over the years, all made mandatory choo choo noises, but never a supercharged car, now I do Frankly, the power delivery of this kills every turbo car I have ever owned, it makes about the same Hp as my old 25/30 in the boat, but, pisses all over it from idle Power wise it delivers better than anything I have ever owned I actually prefer the V8 throaty roar and blower whine over the choo choo noises from any of my turbo cars As for the public, all I get is thumbs up and comments about how good it sounds If we ever meet up feel free to have a drive and give it a little boot, that way you can make up your own mind, I'm as biased as 10 biased things
