      But I would use 16 or 14. Because longer wires have more resistance. Not gonna cause problems though...whatever you find will be ok

      Looking good!
      The only reason I decided not to run this way.was first because its a huge undertaking.and second I was worried about collision from debris and what not. Also once I have my fmic it'll be tight in there. But from the looks of it, it is protected and looks really nice!

      Glad to have helped!

      now go finish it!

      I've been trying to figure out a way to delete my ac and have the alt moved down in it's place. I never use ac.

      Or I was considering just tearing out the internals of the ac. I
      Think the ac lines are nice though at least they are hardlines and clean in the bay. However I have no need for them.
      Plus removing it would allow a better fan to be placed on the rad. That could then be controlled via the ac button in the car.

      Looking good man!

      Just moving the harness by the radiator hoses really cleans things up...I've gotta post some recent work I think

      You can...kind of...
      You will run kinda weird. Start up is rough, you'll get a cel and fuel trim would be off... Its nothing super bad, but should be tuned out because your 2nd o2 will be freaking out
      Edit...by weird...i mean different start up...again nothing bad though...i should have clarified

      um, maybe on a turbo'ed car.
      on my NA, this is what happens:

      as you can see, SAI was disconnected and the hoses removed.


      Vag com shows 2 codes for the 2 disconnected SAI sensors.


      it gets a lil rich on cold starts...


      once its warm, its all back to normal at around 14.7... no fuel trim nor AFR issues.


      but its all good. other than the cel, the car runs fine.

      Hmm so afr gets pissed but goes back to normal once the cat warms up?

      When I ran without mine it went wonky on fuel trim...not bad, but still notable...

      This is what it's gonna look like until i clean out the a/c line. I started doing it, but it wasn't going very well. Also having a bracket made to hold the hoses on the motor mount.
