Looks good JD! I would recommend getting a rubber grommet around that connector to protect from dirt (especially when somebody is sitting in the passenger side)

There is a whole top piece that snaps over the top and with it all the wires exit 90 deg on the right hand side. In this picture you can see the bottom "duck bill" which the top part will mirror.

Not my video but a good one demonstrating the AEM connector.

Probably made by the same company that makes GM's connectors. Is it Aptiv or who makes GM's connectors?

Gm has a crap ton of companies making connectors for them. Kind of depends on who wins the bid that year but most of our connectors are by a few companies. The most common are Delphi, bosch, molex, sumitomo, and Yazaki. Here is the current full list though lol. We had more come out this past year with the new .51mm terminal but hasn't been added to the terminal repair manual yet. Hopefully they update it soon, makes me so mad they have removed all the terminal and connector information from si.

I meant to answer you earlier Kolt but yes I did receive them. Thank you very much. Yesterday evening after spending evenings all week and the better half of yesterday working on it I finally finished my stubby harness from the ECU to the mil-spec connector on the firewall.

Sorry. I dont get on here much lately. It's the AEM harness out to the firewall with the bulkhead, maybe 2 foot long. I went on mouser or digikey and got a milspec connector and pins for a 62 pin connector I think. Then the engine has its own harness for easy removal. V2 of the engine harness will have Deutch connectors for each breakout to make things simpler.

ZZP has their one AEM car - the half mile drag car.

TJP has mine, trevors, and a few others we have worked on.

The nice thing is AEM now has LE5 diagrams and stuff. Things we didnt have when we did my car in 2016.

Lol. I don't think anyone has ever said going stand alone is easy, but the results, especially for the non HP Tuners cars, are well worth it.

All good. I ended up getting the 62-pin mil-spec connector that Trevor sent me a link to. It may be the same as yours, not sure. I also got wiring and pinout diagrams from Kolt for L61 and LSJ components. I'm going to rebuild the stock delphi component connections so if I ever have to replace components in the future they will plug right in off the shelf.

You mentioned LE5 support, I looked up the Series 5 and see they support 2 variable cams!! Yay, I was under the impression I had to go with a Haltec if I wanted support for VVT. Would I need to contact AEM directly to get the LE5 diagram? Google and AEM resources don't bring up anything.

care to share that link? im still trying to sort out what i wanna do when i stick my ms3x into the 944. unsure if i wanna do a single mil spec bulkhead or use 2-3 12 pin flanged deutsch connectors and have each branch plug into the firewall where it needs to go.

Mil-spec plug in firewall







If I was going to do it again I would have started at the center of the mil-spec plug and worked my way out.

Removed excess wires/connectors from engine harness that won't be needed leaving only the components needed to keep power steering and information on my dash cluster. It killed me to cut up a perfectly good harness but no need to leave unneeded wires dangling.

Made a little progress on the car this weekend. Spent Friday evening applying dielectric grease and mating what's left of the OEM connectors. After that I installed loom over the wires so the OEM harness is now done.




Electrical connector clip broke so I had to implement another "zip-tie mod"


AEM 320lph E85 fuel pump and boost reference fuel pressure regulator along with LSJ cooling fan assembly will be arriving at my garage early this week. Installing those will take some time up but I am running out of things to do without my head back yet. I also found another intercooler pump that has better flow characteristics than stock and the plan right now is to run this unit and the stock pump in series. Possibly run just the improved pump depending on if I find room to mount a secondary.
