Can anybody tell we what this wiring harness is from?

It isnt tagged as to what car model its from, but the individual wires are tagged with masking tape.

I think it may be a 1983 944 NA harness from AznDrgn

This would be a perfect time to to have mine done for my 89 8V N/A. Motor is out and the wiring harness is off.......but I think I would be murdered by my wife if I spent any more money on it.

I think that your harness would sell better if they were listed on the popular parts suppliers ofr 944 such as Paragon, 944online and Pelican... Maybe strike up a deal with them. I'd hate to see all this effort go to waste...

Especially if you carry a high-payout life insurance policy naming her as the beneficiary. Thats not an insurance policy, its an incentive program.

I saw these prices that I posted in 2005 on the Rennlist:

$680 for a 944
$865 for a 951
add $20 for S&H to send it back to you.

We will require payment and your engine wiring harness to model from.

I'll still honor those prices for you to get this product going.
I'm sure there will be a price increase soon enough, but I have to get some of these in the field.

After we get up and running, I expect to ship 3 weeks or less from the date payment and your wiring harness is received. However, please understand if you are the first of any model (The S2, the 951, etc) I will need a little more time to source and fly in any little bits I find I do not have on hand.

Once I have built one of each, I will have all the bits on hand and we can hit the 3-week delivery timeline more commonly.

Are you requiring core harnesses for this?

944meister 01-09-2013 04:16 PM

wish i knew about this earlier, it would have been nice to have a new harness, but my car is already put together :(

Fara 01-09-2013 05:31 PM

I'm very interested in this.
Unfortunately, the original harness for my engine is a bit hacked up due to a previous owner's mechanical "improvements".

Do you still need a harness for an early (83) 944 to model one off?
If yes, I can probably get mine packaged up and sent off :)

(I'm aware return S&H will be significantly more than $20 most likely, to ship it to Australia)

is there a difference between LHD and RHD late 944S2/968 engine harnesses?

Carl Fausett 01-10-2013 12:37 PM


Are you requiring core harnesses for this?
Yes, because of the many differences in model years and models - the best way to be sure that the harness we make for you is right for your car, is for you to send us the harness you are using now.

We cut it 10" from the firewall grommet and insert our connectors there. Everything from the connector forward is new. We also provide extra slots in the connectors for extra wire mounts (gauges, etc) and we use a reclosable wire loom so you can add more wires as you see fit in the future.

This plan also keeps costs down, as the DME connector is over $100 each - and that only when I order 500 at a time! (Which we are not going to do).

In our experience, all the wiring inside the passenger compartment is fine and does not have to be replaced. It has not had the damage done by heat, oil, and ozone like that in the engine bay.

When you get the wiring harness back, you will install it as before. In the future - when you pull your motor for servicing, you will be able to unplug the wiring harness at the connector and remove it with the motor in one piece.

Shhh. I don't want her to know how much more I am worth dead then alive. She wouldn't have to work for years.

As my car was an early model for the Australian market, it doesn't come with an O2 sensor connection. Would this process add an O2 sensor?

sstrickstein 01-11-2013 02:58 AM

Id be game. I have a 86 944 NA 5 speed. However, I drive it dayly. If I pulled the harness, how long would I be down?

reno808 01-11-2013 06:27 PM

I have a 87 Tubro harness complete

Carl Fausett 01-12-2013 01:19 PM

Fara: no it would not add an O2 sensor if you do not have one now. You get back the same harness you ship us to work from.

SStrickstein: at this time, it looks like about 2-3 weeks. We will get faster as we start to stock more and more of the connectors. Most are in stock because we have been making 928 engine harnesses for years. But the 951 (in particular) is causing us to hunt up and bring in some new ones we dont have in our hands just yet.
