running guide for S30 wire length and gauge.

Recommended Posts

I have decided to rewire my aging wiring loom and upgrade it to execute all the little upgrades I have in mind. I am by no means an electrical master, but I know the importance even our 70's cars need. My plans for my '74 260z is to wire tuck, hide the wires in the engine bay to be nearly nonextant, and to also include motor sport techniques to make quality upgrades. All wires will be replaced by Tefzel wire and Raychem heat shrink. the point is to make a bulletproof wire loom and to have fun working on this project and making it special. Now for everyone's benefit i will be updating this with all the stock wiring specs as they are on my car with what ever has happened to this car in the past 45 years. I will come up with a Key to understand the small database i am trying to start. the end goal is to help others in their wiring  projects.

KEY:

      System name: Subsection

      Detailed description to-from/Route

      #gauge(American), Stock color, My new color for reference

      Stock length, New route with reasons for change, length of heat shrink for specific subsection

      Expected electrical load, name of oe connector/number of wires, new connector style and size

Hopefully I can create something useful here: and I encourage others to comment, tips, hints, hidden secrets and their own data and I will add it to my data set.

Update: I now have the entire front half from the firewall to bumper measured and mapped out. Will be updating soon.
