Silvia with type X motor wiring.

Recommended Posts

Okay, need some opinions on this one..

 

So i've just dropped a type X SR20DE motor into my S13 sil, it came with a loom and I purchased an ecu separately (fingers crossed it's actually a type X ecu like it said it would be)

 

So i've ofcourse found that not all the plugs match perfectly and i may have some extras (for the headlights perhaps?)

But i've found one that doesn't fit at all and i believe you'd agree with me in saying it's probably important... The plug that connects the engine loom to what i think is the body loom? or interior? (not sure what you call it) but the white plug just next to the blue ecu plug.

 

So. I just want to clear up if it would be easier to purchase a silvia engine loom

or.

Attempt to splice the loom with plugs that actually fit. (which will be my next question)

 

Because the type X engine loom has 13 wires and my silvia only has 12.

also not all the colours match up perfectly (from memory the type X loom has 3 black wires, and the silvia has 3 green?)

 

i've got some pictures here, they weren't taken by me so they may not show everything intended too.

 

But yeah, opinions, advice would be great even wiring diagrams?

 

Cheers.

Is the car originally SR20DE?

 

I'd personally just sell the current ecu/loom and buy a Silvia SR20DE ecu/loom and run it off that.

 

I did the same thing with my car but DET (running red top silvia loom/ecu on a black top type x motor).

I bought a Type X halfcut about a year and a half ago and have done this conversion myself (from SR20DE to SR20DET Type X). I was lucky enough to have the plug from my DE loom still, so I tracked down both the white plug pinouts and matched the wires. There might be another way of doing it, but that's the way I did it, and it worked fine. Everything worked the same as it did before I swapped anything over.

 

Here are the white plug pinouts:

Also, if you got the gearbox with the engine like I did, you'll need a non Type X speedo sensor/drive thing (forgot the name). Mine was about 20kms out and I didn't know why at first.
