    right now I'm looking at the factory hubs, 2nd gen MM rotors, 94 Montero Sport calipers, and probably ceramic pads for those calipers. Going to try to get stainless brake lines too. in my experience unless you really spend the money and get the good properly made slotted or drilled rotors its not worth the money or the risk.

    Have you seen those freaky pictures of Russian scientists standing over autopsy benches with some weird creature sprawled out over them? Wiring can be daunting and that looks like a whole lot of work. You should be able to simplify most of this down into a single loom for the EMS and the rest for the ancillaries.
    Getting this right is one of the more rewarding tasks

    I had my own experience....

    eliminated the distributor, wired in an eclipse dual coil, and turbo eclipse throttlebody/isc/etc.. to go with a AEM ECU, for an eclipse...they don't make one for our truck but guess what, the ecu pinouts are the same I just had to add the wires for the dual coil and move the others to the throttle body connectors... put in a ton of research before raiding the parts yard.

    Hmm well that's pretty cool LSR Mike gotta tuck them wires though bruh ha ha. I think i only need the ecm harness and the middle one. I'm pretty sure that the harness towards the wall goes to the taillights and fuel pump, but I'm gonna wire my fuel pump the old fashion way with a relay straight to the battery. the middle one has a fuse box looking thing wired into it but all the other wires appear to be for the headlights, turn signals, and horns. I'm thinking the relays might be the turn signal relays and stuff i need to label everything. I know I'm just gonna use the factory harness for the headlights, taillights and everything else so I'm gonna have to cut that one up too.

    And yet another useful purpose of a billiard table.
    With a good diagram of what you have and then a decent vision of what you want to achieve wiring is a doable task.

    Anybody got a lead on stainless brake lines? also should I run the montero brake booster with these calipers?

    Also a few updates, started painting the chassis. going with two coats of Rustoleum Primer and three coats of Rustoleum Professional Enamel. still gotta clean some parts of the chassis with a toothbrush to ensure a good adhesion though.

    Also de-wrapped the engine management harness from the talon. its a harness from a 90 talon I found out, hopefully that doesn't cause to many problems cause my engine is from a 91 talon.

    Also built one of the hubs sorta (haven't packed the bearings yet) so i could see how the 94 Montero hubs would line up and looks like the modifications are going to be minimal.

    And yeah Uncle Spence I am using the diagram from Projectzrog which made a lot more sense when i realized i was looking at the ecu connectors the wrong way ha ha.

    Nice work Chyrio. Damn, now I have to fork out for bigger wheels if I want to ditch the garbage brakes on my first gen. And my brakes are trash too...they need replacing
