[Es2] my 20vt project

I have not yet started my engine swap but have been gathering parts to 
do so.  In my limited research I think that if you are using a 200TQ 
harness you can use the same firewall hole.  I believe some of the wires 
in the engine compartment end up being a bit too long.  You can cut them 
down or bundle them as needed to get the right length.
If you are using an S2 harness then you will likely want to cut a new 
hole on the driver's side just like the S2.

As for rewiring, I believe you will want to remove the entire harness 
and replace it with the 3B harness.  I plan to mark where I removed each 
connection and transfer that information to the new harness since most 
of the wires will be the same.

HTH (at least a little),
