Post by marshal1979 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 7:37 pm

How's it goin everyone? I have been working on this project for 3 years now and everyone that was "helpin me" bailed... quality friends lol... I am on here to work share my project work some kinks out and I NEED HELP with the harness. I have a 90 ram50/MM and using a (90)4g63t harness not even sure where to begin (except for the electrical thread maybe)

Welcome to the site! Got a first name? Got any more pics of the truck? I'd love to see more, especially under the hood.

While we can help you sort the harness out, it is infinitely easier to send it to Ryan or myself and have us sort it out for you. That being said, I'm super busy these days, so I recommend sending your harness to Ryan for sure. It will just plain work, and it will make life easy for you :)

First of all thanks!! Name is Ryan (sry bout leavin that out) This project has some stories and it is awesome to hear people like it considering everything I have been through with it. My big issues lie in the fact that at the end of this month I join the unemployment line so cost is a major factor for me which leads me to inquire how much a harness would cost and what is needed from me? I assume the stock truck harness and the 4g63t harness? I am very interested in this because I want the truck done already! haha... as for pics I will look and see if I have any (I had one where my son was playing with the switch box but can't find it.) I know pics are limited because I swore I wouldn't show anyone until it was done, which was a painful two years ago.

a couple specs are 4mmats 12's in a 9.2cubic foot ported enclosure, sonoma mirrors, toyota front end (extended), linked rear, bagged all around, 4 6.5 components (2sets) ID's and mmats, 31band 1/3 octave eq, custom alternator w/ dual 400amp rectifiers, custom dash, rear diffuser vents in stock roll pan, stock fuel rail for now with 970cc injectors, front mount, 250lph fuel pump, 3" gm maf. Will be running dsm link.

needs- power steering bracket, harness, tires for my 18's, and not quite sure what else yet

Hopefully I'll find some pics to throw up here tonight

You will have to PM Ryan to talk about price, but typically when we customize the harnesses, we take a 4G63 engine harness (by itself) and clean it up so that all you have to do when you get it back, is hook up ignition power, battery power, ground, and a starter wire. Then plug the connectors into the engine & ECU, and turn the key. It's pretty awesome.

Also - Your truck sounds & looks great. Is that a vr4 hood vent grafted into the truck hood?

OK cool I'll PM him. This may be a stupid question but what happens with the stock gauges and such regarding the wiring of course?

I really appreciate the compliment, it has been a huge learning curve and I did it all in the really small garage (seen behind it in the first pic) paint and all. The concept for the hood was to enhance the theme of the truck- Mitsubishi performance, so I thought that if I made it to look like the EvoIII hood it would be obvious but I ended up glassing in the vr4 vent with two "turbo cooling" vents. They are functional.

Some of the dash wiring will need to be hooked up to the 4G63, and some of it stays the same. If you have a factory tach cluster:
- gas gauge wiring doesn't change
- speedometer plugs into the factory transmission
- oil pressure gauge wire gets plugged into the oil sending unit on the 4G63 (near the filter)
- battery gauge wiring doesn't change
- truck coolant temp sensor wire gets plugged into the single wire sender on the 4G63 thermostat housing
- Since you have a 90 4G63 harness (right?) You take the tach resistor wire (I think its white?) from the 4g63 coil pack and plug it into the wire for the gauge.

If you don't have a factory tach cluster, your life is way easier. :)

Is your 4G63 a 1990? It looks like you have 2G cam gears. Whats the story with that ?

Cool thanks- No tach, just speed, fuel, temp etc...I plan on running an external tach but have not found one I like yet.

ok so this is where my stuff gets interesting haha, I got everything piece by piece so the harness, intake, rail, and ecu are from a 90 talon, the cas is a 90 eclipse, while the head is supposed to be a 94gsx, according to a lot of what I had researched I found guys using the 94 galant timing parts cam gears and all so that is why you noticed those.

This makes WAY more sense now! lol. Okay, yeah, this will be easy. Does the 4G64 have a spot for the knock sensor?

not to sound ignorant but I believe it does and is currently being used for the upper mounting bracket for a 200amp gm1wire alternator

At some point you may need to find a spot for a knock sensor before you get the truck running again. The ECU will want to see that sensor, and it will keep you from blowing your engine up.

Thanks, I will probably put it in the proper spot and rework the alternator bracket to prevent any harness issues.
