    Default Mass Air Wiring.... Now with pics, and info.

    Does this look familiar to everyone that has done it? I figured I would copy and post this here for future reference.

    is the thermactor the smog pump?... If it is, and if it's not connected to anything in the car, do I still need to move the wires?

    It runs down the passenger side, under the scuff plate.

    I did not do the speed sensor or fuel pump wire. No issues.

    After seeing the instructions, a glimmer of the process from years ago came back to me.

    According to the instructions, I did the top 4 wires, and moved the two at the bottom.

    took a couple pics while I was wiring....
    it might help someone in the future

    first you must take the H block out of the connecting harness, otherwise you won't be able to add or remove the connector pins.

    I also found it easier to work by marking the pin #s on the connector....after flipping it around a couple times, you will always know where the #1 pin is.

    You can see #1 and #20 marked on the top of the connector.


    the rest is simple, step by step instructions above...

    I found the fuel pump wiring right next to the harness for splicing.... The pink with the black stripe.


    here you can see the power and ground splices, covered with tape....use a good quality tape. not the cheap plastic crap..


    this is not a great quality pic, but you want to remove about an inch of wire casing without cutting the wire for your splice.... then solder the new your adding to this section...... and tape it so it's protected.


    I found the VSS ground and hot wires on the drivers side. it's behind the dash and just behind the ashtray or info panel on the bottom of the dash console area. these wires go through the floor and connect to the speed sensor.. the Orange/ Yellow wire, and the Dark green/ white wires.... splice the 2 wires to the harness.


    pretty simple and straight forward install..... put the H block back in the harness after your done adding and moving the wires, and your done.

    Also, to remove a pin from the harness, you must use a very small flat head screwdriver or awl, to push behind the plastic retainer inside the harness... You will see it if you look into the front side. there's a small slot next to all of the pins to do this. I will try to get a pic of that later.

    good luck, and I hope this helps someone

    This would have helped me greatly, I did mine like Vinnie, but would have rather done it all, had I known where everything was. This will be very helpful for the next guy, thanks.

    FYI, parts stores carry pin out terminals(HELP! section) that they will tell you will work in the eec, but they were too large. I just cut out a couple eec plugs in the yard.
