Route the two ground wires (red/black) and (blue/white) for injectors 7 and 8 back to the PCM how ever you choose. I pulled the wire loom off the factory harness and ran the wires with the rest of the harness. But I had my truck torn down to the bones and plenty of access to the harness. You can simply run the two wires directly across to the PCM if you want to, or wrap them around the engine four-times. Just get them over to the PCM.
At the PCM, we will be working with the red
plug. There are three little tabs that hold the connector together, press them in and the plug will open up and loosen up the wires enough to work with them. You will also see that each hole is numbered.
In the first picture above, you will see a little white locking tab on the side of the red
plug. There is a tab on both sides that will need to be pressed in, this will release the pressure on the cover and allow you to pull it off. Beware; it's got a double-vained seal around it, and years of dirt/dust build up holding in it place. Don't be surprised if you have to get an extra pair of hands to hold the tabs down while you gently
pry the red
With the red
cover off, you will see a series of circular terminals and white tabs. These terminals come out a lot easier than one would think. Simply pull the white tabs back with your fingernail and it will release the lock holding the terminals in place. Personal opinion: Yes! My fingernails are black, deal with it.
This picture shows the lugs on the white tabs that lock the terminal in place. And the ridge on the terminal where the lugs sit to lock them in place.
We are looking for five wires, injectors two through six. Since injector one (black) stays in the same location. So find the following pins and pull the wires out.
Injector two (green/black) from pin 15
Injector three (pink/black) from pin 16
Injector four (blue/black) from pin 32
Injector five (black/white) from pin 31
Injector six (yellow/black) from pin 9
You should now be looking at something similar to this.
Now it's just a matter of sticking them in the new holes.
Injector two (green/black) into pin 11
Injector three (pink/black) into pin 32
Injector four (blue/black) into pin 31
Injector six (yellow black) into pin 16
By now you have realized you will need two of the round terminals for injectors seven and eight. The dealer cannot get these(or I haven't found a good part number I should say.) I have only found one place online who will sell them separately. This place is www.currentperformance.com
. The terminals aren't on his website, you have to call him and ask for them specifically. He also sells the V8 pod plug if you want to get everything at once. Just be prepared for a few weeks worth of delivery time. Crimp the new terminals on and install them.
Injector seven (red/black) into pin 12
Injector eight (blue/white) into pin 9.
Double check to make sure every terminal is in the right place. Now bend the tabs back into place and give the wires a gentle tug to make sure they are locked into place. Don't worry if the tabs are a little loose, the red
cover will lock the tabs into place when it's installed. With the red
cover in place, give the wires another once over with gentle tugs to make sure they are still locked into place. Snap the entire plug back together and plug it in to the PCM.
Congratulations, you just modified your existing V6 harness.
