You want rubbish. Then pay little money.

I charge 800 AUD for a haltech and 600 AUD for a microtech.

I use heatshrink and brand new plugs everywere and my harness can be unplugged at every point including earths and powers and all connections including crimped pins are soldered.

You want a car that will have a good electrical system for the next 20 years to come thats how it got to be done.

You want shitty jobs.

Pay 3-400 dollars and get some guy who thinks he knows a thing or two about wiring and youll get a car that never does the right things.

Only one thing with braided wrap is its not resistant against oil and fuel. heat shrink is.

Just for the record... My install was apparently wrong, even by the diagram. Had a reputable rotary shop look at it, and they found the ignition wiring to be mickey moused. They cut out all the wires, and routed the ignition wires into the factory loom. I took all the wires straight to the coils. Paid for 6 hours, $600. yea rape?

To the factory loom yes. At the kick panel where the ecu goes, there's a remaining harness seperate from the main engine harness.
