We thought we had found the attached connector - but the 944/951 parts catalog is wrong - can any one of you owners tell me where this one is used?
That is also used for the oxygen sensor

Progrerss note: Getting a single 24-pin connector has been a real pain-in-the-fanny. How long have we been working on this? 3 months? You would not believe how many calls we have made about this. So we are changing to somthing new - a 14-pin connector for all 20GA wires in the harness, and a 8-pin copnnector for all the bigger wires. These are much easier to get a hold of (we think). Carl

Progress: I had the MOLEX and AMP rep in our shop on Friday to look over our application and help me locate the missing gang connectors to make this happen. I have been screaming at Molex for 4 months for you guys - somehow we were between the cracks on this... now I have their attention.

The connectors they brought with them to show me for our 944/951 harness look terrific - I just have to place my order now.

We're close!

As someone pulling his wiring harness right now I can say this is awesome.

Are you going to have the correct color combination wires?

Those SureSeal ones look bang on.

Carl, these ones youre getting to replace that 24 pin one, are they standard off the shelf parts or are they making a batch of some sort for you?

I ask because im about to start making my own harness this week, and that connector is the only one where I have to re-use the "shell" of it, now that ftanguay posted the source for the O2 one.

And no, nothing wrong with your product, im redoing mine myself because I wanted to customize the part inside the car, to connect to my MegaSquirt. Im sure yours is going to be kickass!

If molex are too slow you can alway have a good amphenol military connector. I did some project with them at work and the are bullet proof!

About Molex - now that I have been channeled to the right people, I do n ot think there is any problem at all anymore. They have the locking, water-tight, automotive-grade gang connector we wanted for the application, and I am placing our order for them now. I am told thay are all in stock.

As to the color and striping of the wires: two items that are in conflict with each other are: getting the same color/stripe color combination that Porsche used, and keeping costs down. Those striped wires are a bugger to locate and can be pricey. I have found about 600' or surpolus that I'll buy with the first order or two - it'll set me back about $800, but I should have enough striped wire for a lifetime of harnesses.

For those wires that we cannot match color-for-color, a "map" will be porovided with each kit so you know what your OEM wire was converted to. No problem.

Sounds good to me! When do you anticipate selling the first few of them?

Hi Carl,

Following up our recent off-line communication, I've packaged up a wiring harness for a 1987 944 S (five speed) and have sent it out today by Fedex. I also tagged the harness with the car model and year.

Let me know when it reaches your shores.

Thanks!

GOOD NEWS: I have received a big box of Molex connecotrs - everything that we have been waiting for! I think we should be able to take orders within 10 days or so.

Progress Note: sorry this is taking so long boys.... been a much bigger job finding replacement connectors for all those sensors than we originally thought. Still, we have not given up. We also have not taken dollar $1 from anybody yet. I have been funding the whole development out of pocket.

Received the correct T-Connector today... got 40 of them (enough for 40 951 harnesses)
I ordered the last of the copper pin connectors we have been missing on Friday - hope they are here soon.

We're close!

Right now - here is what we are thinking....

I am trying to keep the price down as far as I can. The man hours on a single 951 wiring harness - with its shielded three-wire sensor connections - is nuts.
I think I am going to be able to come to market at:
$680 for a 944
$865 for a 951

We have discovered there are many, many variants of the 944 and 951 wiring harnesses over the years - even within the same model year.

So - we have decided we need to make them one-at-a-time using your harness as a pattern.

We solved two problems: some folks wanted us to make them a custom harness with wires for a Motec system or gauges or something. We have decided to ship the new harness with the wire-loom unshrunk - so you can add additional wires for gauges and sensors if you like before shrinking the loom yourself. It shrinks with a hair-dryer after you have added whatever wires you want.

Another problem occured with the connector: the cut-in connector that we are adding between the engine and the firewall for you. This is a waterproof, multi pin connector that will make removal of the engine or wiring harness a snap from now on, but we shuddered to think of the end-user splicing their car onto our harness - and how easilly that could get fouled up. So - we have decided that if you pull your harness to send it in - we will use it as a pattern AND we will splice the fire-wall side of the harness into the connectors for you.

What do you think? How does this sound?
