Carl, if you can make them, I'm in. I worry about my original harness all the time. Fortunately I don't need to use much of it (race car), but it must be there and complete. I'd just like to have one that doesn't present problems.

I'm eager to see these, Carl! Hope you can make some up for those of us who have an "S", as well!!! :)

Heads up, the '86 951 harness made it into the mail today, you should see it by Friday at the latest.

Ok.. now for the 924S- It's gotta be the same as the 944 earlies (hopefully..) Maybe you guys could help me with my headlight wiring switch dilemma..

Please help, o wire harness guru's:

924S and early 944 engine harnesses are exaclty the same and the headlight harness should be the same as well.

GEO - because you are a racer, I think you will especially like this design. We have special-ordered a Molex automotive-grade multi-pin weather-tite connector for the harness, which will be cut in just on the engine-side of the firewall. It is water-tight, and has a clamp on it that will make accidental unplugging impossible.

This has two benefits:

1) for racers: you can unplug the engine wiring harness at this connector, and pull the motor with the wiring harness still in place. Service the motor, and put it back, and plug it in! It is a feature I enjoy on my early 928.

2) for the rest of us: without this connector, replacing the wiring harness means going thru the firewall and under the dash and all that crap - and those parts of the wiring harness do not age and are not damaged! Its just the engine side. So this allows you to cut off the old wiring harness on the engine side and splice in the new one... much easier installation.

Any aproximate estimates what this thing is going to cost?

Manning 04-21-2005 10:37 PM

Yes please!

Carl Fausett 04-22-2005 05:27 AM

I know, I know.... how much $$$ will it be? I will get you a final purchase price as quickly as I can.

I cannot put a number on it quite yet - haven't built one yet. Labor/time is a big variable. I CAN say I have not seen any reason Porsche is asking $2200 at the dealer for this wiring harness.

A 928 has two of these harnesses, one front-engine (alternator, starter, temp sensors, WUR, cold-start injector, etc), and one for the injectors and such. Our front-engine harness sells for $479.00 right now. Please read about the quality of it here:

The injector wiring harness for the 928 is still on the development table, and is coming in at about $680.00 give or take a few with the same connector your harness will be using. ...and you have 4 less injector connectors than it does.

So, I expect it to be a little less expensive than that. $620, $630, somewhere in there. How does that sound?

That sounds more than reasonable to me. You even label the connections. :thumbup: Nice work Carl!

Nice layout board :thumbup:

From $2200 to $620, $630 hell yea it sounds more than reasonable

Carl, I looked into replacing my 944 turbo harness and talked on the phone with Benson Porsche in New Orleans (good guys, best parts prices, fast cheap shipping, no affiliation, etc.). There was a change (major? yes: ABS!) in mid-1986. I could buy an early '86 harness from the factory for like $660, bu t there were low stock in Germany and would not be making them again EVER. The late '86+ was like you said $2100 and would be available for the foreseeable future. I would need the early one, but it was too steep even at $660 since I only wanted to replace it as a precaution.

So I just wanted to point out there is a difference which took place in '86, but don't skip the early '86. There were more '86 944 turbos sold than all other years combined.
