The plug itself reads 47 PED? It is a blue connector that is used all over the harness. I went to the auto parts store because it looks like a headlight plug... yet no luck.

Any thoughts on where to find a replacement plug?
I did some research for ur plug. About 6 bucks from amazon.

Wow thanks man! Ordered.

Also, update:

-Replaced all new plugs gapped at 22.
-Noticed misfire issue and running on what sounded like a cylinder down.
-Checked each plug and noticed one was literally broken as half of it came out... great. Extracted the plug easily with a torx socket! woot! easy!
-Cylinder 5 was not showing spark; plug looked new.
-Re-seated all plugs, coils and replaced the bad plug with a new - thank goodness I bought an extra six when I found them....

Car is running great and smooth.

Now I am having an overboost issue which I am thinking is the wastegate solenoid that has the wire broken.

Should be up and running by the weekend! Excite!

Update 7/3/2013

Plug fixed and car seems to be running great.

Installed single piece chromoly driveshaft! Thanks to the guys over at The Drive Shaft Shop!
- having a small issue with the short shifter hitting the new driveshaft and bumping it out of gear... awesome.

Thanks guys for all the help lately. I really do appreciate it!

Have not had the chance to go WOT as it pops out of gear when the shaft touches the UUC short shitter...

Going to replace the transmission mounts and see if that helps... thinking it is flexing there.


Being3 is a really good member on the forums as he really helped me!
Thanks man!

Is anyone have gen 2 harness? I was installing the new jumperbox mod that was done by being3. Shout out to him hes been alot of help. Hes been more help then hpf themselves lol. Anyways when installing jumperbox i noticed there was a plug that says vss. Its not plugged into anything. Im thinking this is for vehicle speed sensor. If i do hook this up will AEM be able to tell the speed im going?

. Here is the SMG switch / relay.

White and green go to VSS conector. Black and green go to SMG UEGO both tie into SMG relay.

The reason the SMG is possibly not working correctly is because this is not wired correctly. The SMG manual out lines exactly how to wire it. Same for both generations of harness.

This page in the hpf manual says UEGO / SMG connector. After tracing the actual wiring on the harness which connects to the SMG Clutch Slave Circuit B17 on Gen 1 AEM and A24 on Gen 2.

One 2 pin black connector is the vss from the harness that comes up through the firewall and and one Gray 2 pin from the SMG relay connects to the corresponding Gray Is the uego/ smg 2 pin connector on the HPF AEM harness. White and green wires go to 2 pin gray connector. Black and green go to the Black 2 pin connecter.

Update. The black 2 pin connector is apparently for VSS for the traction control.

So had a great weekend! Went on a road rally and had a blast! 400+ miles and not one problem.

Then on the way to the cabin I bottomed out and crushed my charge pipe... Since then my car has been experiencing 'Limp Mode' issues... sigh. I have researched it some and found it to possibly be a short in the harness/O2 or a fuse...

Thoughts? About to put the car on the lift and check it out tonight/tomorrow.

Got your PM thesull, figured it's better to reply here. I unplugged O2 sensor and pulled them up from the top of the engine bay and found the melted sections. Resoldered wires, cleaned things up, and reran the wires in a "cooler" area to avoid repeating the problem. Once that's fixed, you have to replace the fuse in that fusepack by the DME, because most likely the O2 sensor fuse would have blown from a short if the wires melted.

rage2, thank you for the prompt response! Going to pull each one up one by one and inspect. The car is parked and will be sitting until I fix this!
Even with all the little tweaks I have done lately I am really enjoying the car more and more!

Thank you again for the response!

Wonder if you guys can help me with a small issue I'm having. Wife was driving the car when it just shut off. Wouldn't start again (yes there was gas in the car) lol. It seems that I'm not getting fuel pressure. Pumps tested and work. I'm guessing its a harness problem. Has this happen to anyone here? Where should I be looking. Thanks in advance guys. Cheers.

Fabio.

Still wont start. Mechanically everything works (starter,fuel pumps,injectors) when tested.

Is it an SMG? If so... Try resetting the computer... 3 full turns of the key from off to on... The try again... Try switching the salmon relay.
