3.6 conversion, lots unused wires?

Hello,

on my 88 Carrera the non Vram 3.6 conversion was done from PO.
In the left engine bay I found lots of unused connectors, looks
more like a half engine harness.
Honestly the car has no problems, but I don't like having a half engine harness
unused in my engine bay.

Is that the "normal" situation on a 3.6 conversion.
Maybe they used a Vram harness with few more plugs?



Thanks
Falk

Correct, when the engine harness recall was done there was just 1 harness w/ all the connectors for both v-ram and non vram, w/ SAI & w/o, w/ belt mider & w/o etc.

What Bill said. My '95 with the updated wiring harness has a few unused connectors on the left side. They're just sort of tied up and tucked aside although they're hidden around the underside on the heater ducting, out of site.

Yep. I was concerned as well and asked Instant-G about it probably 3 or 4 times.

Does anybody know who is selling 3.6 conversion parts i.e early chassis and engine wire harness other than Patrick Motorsports ?
Also any shops in NV or Southern CA that would do a conversion without reaping you off ?
Thanks for your help !
