The engine loom on the newer mondeo, I use 23 wires out of the 42 plug. I chop the loom up and remake the it to fit the car.

I agree 100% but "most" of these cars are budget blasters not formula cars.

Given the choice of max available power @ WOT or great drivability across the range I would choose the second.

A little update.

First job, let the dog see the rabbit.

There are four looms in the engine bay. The main car loom and three for the engine. Its these three ive started on. There is only two on the <2000 mondeo and other than a couple of extra plugs thats all you need. So Ive stripped back the three sub looms.



I am now tracing back from the ecu the 104 pins

Your " her in doors" and she who must be obeyed must be a lot more understanding than mine wasa. If i brought that lot in and shoved it on the dining table she would shove it where the sun dont shine

How the hell have ford ended up with so much wiring on something as simple as an ecu, surely some of that will get trimmed out The loom I made up to go with the emerald ecu has a fraction of the wiring.

Swimbo was at work so while the cats away the mice can do what the feck they like


It will need 95% of that then some more besides.

There is alot more control over the engine than after market.
