Remanufactured Engine Wiring Harness for 944/951
We make new engine wiring harnesses for the Porsche 928 that are no longer available from Porsche.

see it at: Rennlist Discussion Forums > Water Cooled Technical Discussion Areas > 928 Forum > Engine Wiring Harnesses are Shipping

I have several who have emailed me and asked if we have a wiring harness for the 944 and 951 - but I need a used engine wiring harness to look at in order to answer whether or not we can make the part.

Porsche part number 95161200106 is $2020.67 at present from Porsche for a 1987 951 engine harness - you gotta be kidding!

Dpes anybody have a spare used harness I can disect or buy?

That would be really cool if this could be done. What would be the approximate price for this new harness? Is it a complete harness, or just engine bay?? ...I need details...

I know that there a few people that are in the middle of parting out a few different years. XSBoost and Rock are 86-87 924S and 944 and unreal_news I think was looking at redoing his 951 harness. He might be your best shot. I have an early harness '83 that I might part with if I can get a repro from ya;)

I love it when things like this happen. Carl, you are a good man for even making the attempt!

I am interested in 924 '76- thru '85 replacement harnesses if you could look into doing those as well. I have a spare harness I could donate for research. If I had the 944/951 stuff I would pony those up too.

I have a junked harness from an '86 I would be happy to send you. Its missing a few connectors that have been stolen off it, but it should get you in the ballpark as far as knowing what needs to be done. Send me your addy and I will get it to you. I will be in for one for sure for my '87 951 (I am guessing there will be a few changes but it should be close).

Hmm, I'm rebuilding the harness on my 951. Just cutting out most of the middle parts, cutting the wires at the connections, soldering and shrink wrapping to replace them. Using different sleeves and such on the wiring, which will hopefully hold up a little better.

If you can keep your prices in line with the 928 price, these should sell like hotcakes. Looking forward to seeing the end result!

...and approximately how much are said hotcakes?

Take a look at his site.

Not bad for "like new" the only thing that I would like to see is that the terminal ends were black and maybe shrinked. Then again you can't complain is if is working now can ya;)

I have an early 944 wiring harness that has a few cracked clips on it that I would be willing to donate to this cause. PM me an address and I'll mail it out to you when I get home next week.

Just an idea but could you add a connector at the firewall so that when you do an engine drop you can just disconnect the motor from the rest of the stuff inside? I know there really isn't that much in there but it makes it a lot easier sometimes if there is an easily accessable connector right there in the engine bay.

Carl, excellent idea! You have a buyer for an early 944 and a 951 if you can get this project moving.

Tarheel - that is the best damn avatar I have ever seen.

Please understand: if you donate a engine wiring harness for study, I need to remove all the sheathing and wire loom. It will not be useable when I am done.

It can be a cracked/bad wire harness - that's quite OK. It just MUST have all the wire connectors on all the ends.

Once I get one to dissect and study, I can get an answer to you guys pretty quickly about whether I can make it and what it will cost.

Tag it with the year/Model of 944 or 944S2 or 951 it is for.

Ship it to:

To keep from getting duplicates when you send a harness you should post what you sent here so we can keep track of what Carl has, unless carl wants or needs duplicate harnesses. You should only really need an early harness ('83-85/1), a late harness (85/2 and on), turbo harness, S harness, and S2 harness.
