Figure 141. Completed the passenger side coil harness. The pink (12v keyed power), brown (low reference), and black (ground) wires were all spliced together down to one wire each at the rear plug. Marine grade 2 wire to 1 wire heat-shrink butt splices were used to make the splices. Coil 2 and 4 wires spliced together, then coil 6 and 8 spliced together, then those two spliced together.

Figure 142. The dipstick problem was found after pulling the oil pan off. The louver next to the oil pickup was sticking out far enough to block the dipstick from going down all the way. A quick couple taps with a ball peen hammer fixed that. While the pan was off, it was sent to get powder coated.

Figure 143. The passenger side injector harness has now been completed. As with the coil harness, the pink (12v keyed power) is spliced together down to one wire at the back of the harness. Injector 2 and 4 spliced together, then injector 6 and 8 spliced together then the remaining two wires spliced down to one wire.

Figure 144. The oil pan is back from powdercoating and it is looking fantastic. The Moroso studs were replaced with M8 x 20mm button head socket screws with M8 stainless washers. We were not happy with the look of the studs and the black button head screws are a big improvement against the copper of the oil pan. The pan is now re-installed for the final time, it should not have to come off again.
