I have two of those, I simply use a female spade connector. Fits perfect and sits snug. They're tapered on the end so they catch the circle perfectly.

^^ I had those lying around too and will use them

Belts on --still need that second alternator bolt



Brackets mocked up



CCV / ICV assembly fitted. Need to shorten the hose from ICV to throttle boot, but the manifold kit came with a neat little copper/shrink tube adapter piece . Also need to figure out which vacuum ports on the mounting plate can be blocked off (secondary air pump stufff) and get a plug of some sort. Also looking for something to plug the rubber heater hose going to the TB that won't be used



Also changed the MTL in the ZF gearbox to redline and installed the Turner coolant pipe adapter fitting

Got all the part numbers for the bellhousing bolts, slave mounts, bleeder screw etc together and ready for order from Maranello tomorrow
Headin out to town tonight to grab some pieces, then should be able to start wiring up the motor, installing/wiring the senders

Looking good!

Started wiring up the motor today, realized I have everything labelled except the + and grounds, which are tres confusing!

So we have these wires under the manifold -- alternator?



These over by the DME connector (battery)?



By the diagnostic connector (starter? fusebox power?)



By the relays (starter? fusebox power?)



I also don't know if I got the relays right, I used the ones from an OBD2 harness, I'm going to have to dig into the ETM and make sure theyre correct

From what i remember when we did my buddy's swap, I think you got most of those right. Any chance you can get an e30/e36 there for reference?

You are very close to the top of the hill my friend lol!

Cormier the three in the first pic look like the wires for the starter. If I remember correctly there were 4 wires going to it. The three little ones, and the large red one.

Thanks Nate I just have to stop being lazy and take a better look searching, I'm sure it won't be hard

What's pissin me off now is I have 2 1/8 NPT temp senders and a pressure sender, the pressure sender came with a proper metric kit including an M12x1.5

I ordered other fittings for the temp senders but the hole in the middle is too small to fit the temp sender through. Contacted egauges and they tell me there's no good 1/8 to m12 adapter for the temp senders and to try an autometer sender and fitting instead.

Like WTF I'm sure that fitting that came with the pressure sender works perfectly for the temp ones as well, gotta double check but how is a stupid little piece of brass so damn complicated. If that fitting works I'll find another damn way to get 2 more of them-- I really don't want to go with senders from another company if I don't have to

Ran the gauge sender wires through the harness, all stealth-like . Heat shrink tubing is my new favorite product



Leaving the other end until I figure out what to do about senders

Cormier I ghetto rigged my temp sender for my autometer gauge into that port without having to buy a fitting. Definitely not as pretty but it will work until I figure out a fitting. I can send ya a pic if you want.
And as for the starter it is 4 wires, one small, one slightly larger, and red power, and then another red that uses the same terminal as the power but just joins the starter and alternator. Terminal size corresponds to wire size so its pretty straight forward.

On your M50 manifold there is a hole on the bottom, closest to the firewall side, do you know what goes there? I have nothing in mine and cant find any pieces that fit. If I remember correctly it was a clip in connector with a thinner rubber hose going to it.

^Isn't it the vacuum line for the FPR?

And cormier the two wires that are by the DME are for the positive terminal that's in the engine bay.

Thanks for the starter/alternator clarification, I havent got the starter mounted yet but when I do I'll make sure everythings run properly

How do you mean? My sender simply wont fit in the hole, too small at 1/8th. I bought the 1/8th NPT senders because I didnt think sourcing a fitting would be this hard! I think another sender may be the best option but I have to make sure it has the same ohm range as the VDO gauges require (Im not too hot on electrical stuff, but that should be ok ). I'll try to find them today online and report back.

Ya its a round clip with a prong in it, and a little nipple coming out for the vacuum hose to the OBD1 FPR. I believe if youre just using the M50 manifold though without the OBD1 fuel rail you block this off--Turner sent be a block off one with my conversion kit....buuuuttt i broke it. lucky i didnt need it

Thanks -- I figured as much but I have the battery up front, I need a distribution block or something I think. I've seen these on e36s...I can just make a smaller + lead to the battery. Don't really want to run a battery cable all the way to the trunk just yet... maybe next year

I dont need fusebox + though right? If I get all the other stuff hooked up it'll be the last one left over lol. Then I'll get my wire snips out.

P.s still missing the lower mounting bolt for the alternator. I've tried every bolt in the freaking pulley/belt diagram and nothing fits. Can't find any M bolts that size at the hardware store either.
