My stepdad dropped of my new intake today, it's an AEM cold air that goes into the bumper. Thanks to Brennan (bmaca455) I now have the splash guard. I test fitted it, and it looks like I need to get rid of the cluster of wires next to the fuse box. I'm sure somebody has done this, will I need to extend any of the wires or should it have enough length to say... put it under the dash? I was thinking of moving the fuse box too if I have to extend wires, just for a cleaner look.

i did this last year. I un hooked the fuse box. you will have to extend the wires going to the starter if i remember. I removed a/c so i had more room to play with. I unplugged the wires pulled them through and hooked them back up. I extended the wires for the wiper motor too and put the map sensor under the dash.

Im taking it further now that my motor is out. Im moving the resistor box down and moved more wiring under the dash. I am going to route the clutch cable under the intake manifold if it will work.

I don't have AC, and my starter wire is different already because the battery is in the trunk. I also have a Z6 manifold, so the MAP is on the throttle body. I have a lot of different coloured wire, I'm about to head up and get this done, I want to get my new intake in!

If you have to extend a wire do it ONE wire at a time. Cut, solder, heatshrink.
I have a prelude body harness, same colored wires as my crx so Ill be cutting it up to extend more wires to get everything where I want it.

When I get around to borrowing a camera from my friend (with charge this time!) I'll take some pictures. I managed to tuck the fusebox and all the clips without extending any wires, I just tore apart the harness and retaped a lot of it. I will probably go back and extend a couple of things, I was in a rush to finish and it's functionally fine how it is. Having the battery in the back and already rewired made it easier I think.
