I've seen a few 1JZ converted FC's running around the "other board" has a few of

them, I'm shelling my car right now gearing up for this conversion on a spare FC

shell I have lying around, but was curious how people wire their harnesses? Are

they using a 1JZ harness? a FC Harness? a spliced up fc/1jz harness? Not sure,

never done this before so I'm in the dark.....

My thoughts are.... They're using a stocker or modified ECU from a 1JZ and converting

the endlinks (Engine Out/In) on both sides of the harness to plug up to a 1JZ? I have

flushy headlights so keeping popups isn't necessary, but for the people who DO keep

them, I was trying to figure how they got them to operate? Since the popups are the

only thing I can think of that is in the engine bay (that I can think of off the top of my

head) you'd think you could use a full 1JZ harness for your bay, then convert your

cabin harness to accept your plugouts for your cluster and whatever else? Logicon

I'd guess? </ramblings>

Dunno guys, tell me what you think.

No haven't picked up the engine yet, waiting to see what floats by.

There's been a lot of "dirty dealings" from what I've heard with

a lot of the shops in my area selling skunk engines. I figure that I

will get it all wired and trans in before I get the goods.

**** the popups, lol. I'd go with the nightsport kit or whatever that kit is the miatas have with the two little lights in bezels...

I looked into the 1gz swap a bit, you got any leads? There's one site I found who has kits for everything including the FD3S but not the FC...
