    DPI headers and starter wiring

    Hi all
    Just in the process of finishing a DPI exhaust install and my wiring bundle coming from my starter is dangerously close to the headers. They are routed toward the front of the car but are still real close. Any tips or tricks?
    Thanks
    John

    What about spark plug wire covers. Im not sure what they are made of but they can sat right on a exhaust runner without issue. You could run each power wire through one of those.

    I had to modify the harness routing. I actually removed one of the engine hoist loops from the top of the block and used to to route the wiring away from the headers.

    I believe i also ran the whole harness under the metering unit so it looked cleaner and gave me a little more slack. Let me see if i have any pictures. My car is in storage in another city.

    Pretty crummy pics. This was from when i was fixing my head gasket leak. U can see the harness is really close to the block though.

    Thanks Dave
    The pics really helped. I wrapped the wires with heatshield and routed them so they won't touch the pipe.

    Thanks
    Finally finished the install with new eagle starter.
    The exhaust kit is very well put together. Great quality, looks good and sounds better. I also love the access I have around the lower and rear of the engine.
    And the best part is the alternate mounting holes for when you break a stud removing the old exhaust!

    That is how I did mine too, five years ago, and zero problems. Still the best sounding DMC exhaust.

    That eagle starter is a good upgrade, isn't it? It's cheap, sounds better and weighs about half as much.

    Definitely a good upgrade! Wasn't easy finding one though
