But they're all very easy to get to and it probably takes me about 90 extra seconds in a 2.5 hour job. And if I'm pulling the engine to do any sort of significant work to it, the two-piece harness would still have to be removed from the engine. Regardless of which EFI harness you choose, there's still the original engine harness from the car (for the alternator and various sending units) that needs to be undone, so you'll still be unhooking individual wires no matter which way you go. In all, I felt the benefits didn't outweigh the costs.

I like to design for ease of major maintenance even though I also design not to need it.

You know you need clutches pretty often on high hp cars, so why not build for the fastest engine pull possible.
