    For what it's worth, I've been running this manifold for a while on a first gen and my wire loom looks fine (no heat damage) jammed between the IM and the PS reservoir.

    Also, I ordered some more fuel shit so I can get that going/plumbed, which is nice.

    How did you determine wire size?

    I'm asking because the amps to wire size seems similar to national electrical code requirements, but I'm not familiar with working on DC systems. #12AWG seems large for equipment on a car.

    Here is a chart I found through google, it's for DC systems on boats.

    Have you selected an insulation type? Or is there generic "car" wire that's good for harsh engine environments?

    Mine is silicone coated, and I'm up-sizing my wiring for durability somewhat (except for the primary trunk/feed from alt and starter).

    "Yo Enki, your car has been pretty close to being done for a while now. Why do you still think it won't be running until August?"
    One of the reasons is because of shit like this:

    Just about every order has been fucked in some way. Much wasted money, but more than that, mucho wasted time.

    wiring is the devil for any project car, the scope of what you are changing and a desire to do it correctly is just making it that much worse
