**** no, would you pay $2k for a harness?
once upon a time i priced out parts and connectors etc to DIY a brand new harness (only reusing the DME plug and i think one other) and its maybe $100 for suitable material.
if you wanted metric Germans-spec color-coded wire then the price does go up a bit but $2k is nuts.

If there was a demand Kroon would have done it already. Unfortunately not many na owners will spend $2k for a completely new factory spec wiring harness even if it would fix 99% of any electrical issues :rolleyes:

The problem is the labor from what I've been told. Wiring harnesses tend to be expensive.

Has anyone contacted New England Wiring Harness to see what they have in stock, or if they would be willing to redo an existing harness? They treated me quite well when I had them rebuild/ construct new/ my 1955 Mercedes 190 SL harness. Excellent work, all German braiding and color coding with tinned ends on the wires to put into the harness connection blocks. That was many years ago, and the price was OK then. Presumeably the prices would have gone up since then. They are well regarded in the classic car field and advertise in Hemmings almost every month. Give it a shot..it's only a phone call.

I see Ian from 944Online is selling new Porsche 944 complete engine harnesses in their packages. Since one of the concerns was the mutilated/modified condition of used ones hes come across. Would 928MotorsportsElectrical be up for grabbing these and reproducing them for the NAs? He has I believe the complete range of years for the NAs

I need to replace some the fuel injector plastic clips on my early 944. I bought some of the boots and other parts to redo them, but the original ones have a sealer around the boot. Any way to get these buggers off without having to clip the wire? Thought about depinning the connectors, but no luck there either. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Just buy a new harness from Lindsey Racing and forget about it :) https://www.lindseyracing.com/LR/Por...4-HAR-INJ.html

Your wires are very crispy at this point and replacing them will eliminate many headaches in the future.
