    Thread: A2 1.8t AWP swap tech Wiring Made Easy

    1. 03-07-2005 08:23 PM #71
      hey gtiboy66, i was wondering how the alternator is hooked up, I no how to hook it to the battery but how is the field and indicator hooked up, I am wondering because I did a 1.8t swap into my a2 with a tec3 and I am running a the alternator from my old engine and I wanna convert to the serp belt,

      and I cant find my bentley anywhere, From what I can tell is that the main post goes to the battery/starter, and then their is a 2 pin plug with small 18 or so awg wire, I think the one is for the indicator light and the other is for switched ign to charge the field

      the back of the alternator looks like this, but mine is a 90amp not 120amp

      Sorry But I do not know. Once its installed you should be able to test it with a mulitmeter. I did not take that part of the wiring apart.

      wow. lots of info...

      i know i'm a n00b at swaps, so please bear with me: how many hours of labor should this take for a competent mechanic? i'm looking at having a swap done for me, because this is WAY over my head... just wondering how many limbs it's gonna cost me to have it done.

      it took me 2 weeks from start to finish done very nicely. I have never touched it since I did the swap. I was working after work and on the weekends only.

      how much $ would that translate to? i guess i'm trying to figure out how much, minus parts, the swap could cost me..

      I probably have 60 hours into it. From start to finish. So figure a shop would charge roughly 1500-2500 in labor.

      sweet man, thanks i think you posted a lot of good info if i knew wtf is meant if you were closer, i'd pay you to do the swap

      you need motor, wiring, ECU with REVO immobilizer defete. Whatever trans you want. If converting to hydrolic then you need all cable shift stuff. you need turbo and piping and couplers. Its not cheep by any means. I might sell mine if interested,

      Still sorting out the wiring on my swap I figured some of the t14 connector wires out and spliced them in to the ce2 harness like temp gauge and some other stuff the only thing left is the main ecm harness wires from the brown plug which I`ve narrowed down but I`m unsure of where they should be spilced into the ce2 harness I`m using to power them When you did the outline of the 20v harness plugs you didn`t give where you spliced it into the ce2 harness to make it power up do you have that info or could you break down where for example brown plug pin# 1 goes to ce2 plug d 6 I hope this make sense to you it what I think makes people shy away from the idea of swapping this engine in being able to get the splice info is what most people are after.I know if my wiring was done I would have the car back together sooner.Jay

      Dont know what your ce2 cars are like over there but here in the uk we have got spare wires on the back of one of our plugs for accericores which are all ign lives. You can use these out puts for the lives that you need on the brown plug and on the t14. Off the top of my head im sure that theres 7 ign lives needed when you run with the donar clusters and 5 when you run with a revo immbz defeat.

      Pictures of the splicing the harness to the ce2 fuse box and wiring with a rough diagram like brown plug pin 1 red with green spilced to ce2 red with black g1 plug.that the way I`m thinking so there isn`t any factory smoke coming out of the ecm or fuse box or harness for that matter.I think some people that do the swap just keep the info to themselves which makes it complicated for other people to perfom the swap or swaps.Jay

      You dont want much do you....

      The reason that people dont give out info like this is because some lame ass mofo will put all the info onto CD and sell it on ebay for a tidy profit.

      Gonzo tuning does the immobilizer defeat for $82 shipping included. He doesn't rip you off with having to buy the software.
