A little late in the season, but finished making a plug and play fuel pump control module relocation harness. Helps relocate the control module to keep it cool. If it overheats, it causes a severe fuel cut. If anyone is interested, let me know and i can whip one up

Where does this relocate it to, with the provided length?
(i.e. where is the better/ideal location?)

And rough price estimate?

Thanks, took about a year of research and trial/error to figure out the connector part numbers and which terminals they used but it was worth it

New charge pipes are done and mounted. Moved the BOV to the pre-intercooler pipe due to clearance. Had to shave about 1/2 of subframe to fit the turbo out pipe

I suffered the severe fuel cuts because my LPFP control module would overheat. I bought the version of this that Eric made a long time ago and it worked great. No more fuel cuts or overheating in Florida and Georgia summers. This looks even easier now because there is not splicing involved.

I'm not sure if the wire length is the same as the old ones, but I was able to relocate mine on the original version of this extension harness to under the plastic cover where the satellite radio box is supposed to be.

Is that what they're called? During my time working on military training stuff, we always called them cannon plugs.

same difference. Amphenol is the brand name, cannon plug is a generic term for them. I got lucky and found this in a del sol at a junkyard a few years back. The two connector halves retail for $150. I'd prefer black but I only paid $5 for the pair

Polished one of my flanges. Spent around 2 hours on it, so many blisters
