Project SR E30: Part 7 – Wiring and First Startup!Posted on May 19, 2019byNikita RushmanovWith everything mapped out, we spliced the harnesses together! The harness is now ready for a test start.At this point we need to install the dashboard. A lot of the E30 ignition wiring runs through the dashboard harness, so we can’t start the car without it.One last thing. Since this car was originally an automatic, it has a safety mechanism that prevents you from starting the car unless it’s in park. We bypass this by splicing a couple of wires together from the shift selector connector to make the car think it’s always in park.https://photos.smugmug.com/MotoIQ/Project-Cars/Project-SR-E30/i-Nh4WWJX/0/8259769f/1920/MVI_4899-1920.mp4And finally we can fire up Project SR E30 for the first time!Now that we know the car runs, we decided to install our coolant swirl pot. A swirl pot has to be mounted as high as possible to work correctly. In order to gauge how high we can mount it, we installed the hood.With the hood installed, we climbed under the car, and inserted the swirl pot into the engine bay, pushing it up as high as we could. We then used a marker to mark the location of the mounting holes.RelatedPrevious page 1 2 3 4 5Next pageRelated TopicsNissanBMWEnginesuspensionWiringElectricalEngine SwapSR20E30SR20DE Previous Article FeaturesSlipAngle Podcast /// Beau Brown talks Tuning and TrackingPosted on May 15, 2019September 18, 2019byAustin CabotView Post Next Article FeaturesSlipAngle Podcast /// Late Night Hangs with SCCA W2W RacersPosted on May 21, 2019September 18, 2019byAbrin SchmuckerView Post Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
