That's a pretty neat setup. I used the stock 4G63 thermo housing and it sits at a bit of a funny angle. Not that it affects it's functionality of course but it's always bothered me that it looks wonky :|
As seen here:

Always did wonder why you kept the AC fan temp switch sensor on the thermostat housing?

Had bigger fish to fry at the time and, well... laziness :oops: oh and I've had a request to figure out how to put A/C in the car :roll:

Would be a good spot for a bleed valve mind you.

Lol, a bleed valve like on my housing? You should retrofit some sort of AC then do a write up on SG!

Though that temp sensor could be used to turn on a secondary fan if you had need for one.

Looking good! not sure how I missed this thread.
Love the conversion to Hilux rear end! This thing will be sweet slammed on some nice vintage 3 piece wheels, though I agree that starion wheels would look great too :mrgreen:

Got the VR4 front end chassis harness deloomed and labeled. Deleted the front ABS sensors, AC stuff, which the AC relays were also the Fan relays I believe, but I got painless fuse block that came with the modded g63t harness, so I can use that for wiring up my Radiator fan. It's not like I was going to use stock GVR4 fans anyway lol. A couple plugs (LH Corner lights and a Chassis to ENG harness connector) I have to repair as I somewhat cut them apart thinking they were apart of the AC, DOH! For the Chassis to Eng Harness connector, I had to go through the Circuit diagrams to find out what wire is for what, labeled them then cleaned up the work area because obviously I'm tired and making mistakes.


Still got a VR4 interior harness to go through and delete all the features I don't need lol, such as; Power windows, Locks, Auto-Death Seat belts, ABS, anti theft, AC, Power antenna, etc.

It's not like any of this is really needed, but I wanted to go this route in wiring, especially for my GC Galant Conversion down the road.

The only part of the interior wiring harness you should need is the OBD port. Aside from that the only other piece of wiring that's inside the car aside from the ECU is the MPI relay and that's part of the engine harness.

Or am I missing your objective here?

You're missing my objectives lol. I'm in a sense updating everything electrical in this car. The front end harness has everything I need for quad headlights, bumper lights (turn/parking lights/fog lights), might replace the wiper motor too. Interior - replacing the bus fuse fuseblock (a couple tabs to hold fuses in place are broken), tail lights, stereo/speakers, and heater if I want to run a newer one. From sitting for 11yrs in storage, a lot of the electrical has shorted out, I've managed to get some working, but others are intermittent.

In short, it's somewhat of a restomod lol, I mean it already has a few gvr4 parts as it is and they certainly won't be the only vr4 parts it will have ;), still got my front seats sitting in storage..

Gotcha! I missed that part.


That evo manifold worked out great by the way, thanks again.

I figured as much :mrgreen:, glad that intake manifold worked out for you. It's more or less #1350 reincarnated in a distant older brother of a car. Though I have no intentions yet of painting it G31 Belize Green :lol:.

I don't know if the VR4 ecu's are the same (or if you're even using the original ecu) but the sonata one that I'm running had a spade connector type plug that you need to earth to set the base timing. I nearly missed it and chopped it out. It's now just tucked away down the back of the loom somewhere. I made a little jumper cable with a male connector on one end and a spring loaded clip on the other that I just attach to an earth point somewhere to set the base timing.

I used the big main fan from the Sonata I chopped up. Waste not want not. :lol:

GVR4 ecu's are the same as eclipse and evo ECU's for the most part, which are for the most part the same as the hyundai ecu's aside from the turbo related stuff.

All of those will have the base timing port that needs to be grounded, as well as a fuel pump test lead that will seem useless.. until you need them. :D

When the tunnel gets cut, so will a portion of the firewall, directly behind the head for the thermostat and some near the turbo for the exhaust, then new metal welded up.

Got to pull the Interior harness, front chassis, and heater core out to make room for all that work. So yes, for the tine being I won't have a heater lol, I'll figure something out eventually. I'll get some pics up later.

I compared one of my US tails to one of the GC tails...close but no cigar. Will need a litlle trimming/cutting to bolt the GC tails up.

What transmission are you running?

I was thinking KM132 by the driveline list for the mods you made back near the start of the thread.

If so, use the D50 tailshaft housing, it will allow you to sit the engine farther forward in the engine bay and keep the stock location of the shifter, you'll have to redo motor mount brackets and possibly use differnt holes or make new holes for the trans cross member, but it's way worth it compared to ditching the heater and cutting holes. There's a lot of room in front of that engine and cutting out the firewall and trans tunnel is senseless if you don't need to.

coming from a guy that knows :oops:

Mk3 Supra R154 5spd :mrgreen:! Cutting my tunnel is more practical than beating with a hammer, because the cars originally equipped with the KM110 4spds have a tiny tunnel vs the auto cars had a much larger tunnel. I'm also keeping the Thermostat housing at the rear of the head, so that negates some fire wall cutting as well, but being that is right above the tunnel, it's not a big deal. My Griffin radiator is also pretty big lol (22x13) and going right around where the original one was located.
