I'm currently in the middle of the engine-swap of my '86 Coupé quattro.
The new enige is a WR from the UrQ, and the ECU is MAC-01C.
As I found the wiring-scheme for the MAC-01C, I started wondering what
all the other wires and connectors were...
One of the harnesses is to the ECU. I've found all the right colors and
But there's still two harnesses left.
I've taken some pics of them, too:
I guess these are the harnesses for the other sensors and stuff, sensors
that not have anything to do with the ECU, such as
low-oil-pressure-gauge and stuff.
The reason of my questions, is that I wonder if I actually have to
install this harness as well, or could I just use the one currently in
my car? I haven't ripped it out yet, it's in some hoses that includes
wiring to the lights and stuff. So I didn't want to rip it all out until
I had to...
My car has (had, actually...) the KV-engine.
And btw: What's this thing actually?:
I know it's a part of the ECU-harness, but actually what is it? I'ts
supposed to be installed behind the dashboard somewhere, should I just
put it on top of the ECU?
BTW2/OT: Check out these pics as well:
I've had this car to play with for 24h now, just had to give it back to
the dealer.. It's a Seat Leon Cupra R, fwd with Audi S3-engine (210hp),
Recaro-interior, 18" alloys and Brembo-brakes... Fun stuff!
But here in Norway it costs 59000 USD or 60500 Euros...:-(
