    Is there such an animal or do I just have to splice in some extra wire? The leads in my harness are way too short...

    thanks

    Really? Too short? I actually shortened mine...because they were too long

    Thanks Tim. I don't mind splicing wires together, but I've got so many more important tasks to do yet - always looking for off-the-shelf solutions for the little stuff...

    On a side note, with inspiration from your fresh air intake design, I have created a similar one. Will post up a picture when I get it all put together.

    You can buy the connectors and pins and extend the wires. I’m very curious as to why yours are too short...you have the gmpp harness right?

    Yep. I have the ecm/fuse box inside the car. The main trunk of my harness comes through a hole in the firewall above and center of the engine. From that point the sensors 'hang' about half way down the side of the headers.

    Curious....have you unwrapped it? A lot of the wires on my harness were folded back on themselves. You might have the extra length hidden within
