    Yep, VY and older (ecotec 6, GenIII 8) are cable, VZ and newer (alloytec 6, GenIV 8) are drive by wire
    I like luxury. It's the new performance.

    I've just made up my harness - should be running it in the car tonight all going to plan. All of the wires have a mate from the prelude harness except for 3. I'm going to have to make the cruise switch on the dash work as a momentary switch instead of on/off.

    Means I have had to run 3 additional wires - Cruise Sw, Ignition Pwr, Cruise Switch Light.

    Nice. Though I still think you should grind and polish the vtec lettering.

    ps that camera angle does trashbag no favours.

    Its still going to be a while before its up and running. Got a few more things with regards to wiring to do... and then first start up test...

    Then the interior goes back in fully.

    Wow really great to see the engine is going back in.

    Great work guys.

    That oil filter looks tasty Ian
