I didn't want to contact rywire until I had all my ducks in a row, mainly determining whether I needed to purchase an ECU conversion harness and do the rest myself or go to the shop and pull the Hf harness + misc. obd1 plugs and send it all in for plug n' play with cost, time (I only get out to the shop about once a week, twice at most currently until school gets out next month), and my skills all being determining factors. I had hoped to have all the parts needed for this swap ready by the last week of July, then I could go full speed into the swap before Fall semester kicks in during late August. To summarize, I would recommend that no one attempt a budget build FE swap while in school, esp. if they work as well like I do. Time is my least plentiful asset currently, with money as a close second. Mak
MakDiesel: I don't want to bum you out, but welcome to life. My primary problems are a combination of not enough time and not enough money. Best of luck to you!

It was more of a vent, I realized the situation long ago and am too impatient/passionate to not work on a car. Plus gas is not backing down anytime soon, so the faster I get this swap done, the more I will reap the benefits, and begin tweaking a new project. Mak

it's been two months, still no 5-wire. I had one in the bag for $35, but then the formally-active seller ceased to exist on Redpepperracing.com (Still wondering on that one). Anyway, I expect Paypal to refund me and I'm still searching.....the biggest thing is price; I only spent $170 for the entire Z1 engine so I can't rationalize even a third of that being the cost of a single sensor (I know what new ones cost BTW...ridiculous precious metal mphmth...) so I'm still in the market...Mak

PS. In other news, the harness has been updated, the motor is in minus one mount, and the suspension is coming together...w/ the sensor she'll fire by Jan.!
