Engine Bay

Post by Jacobmartin7 » Fri Sep 18, 2015 8:27 pm

Has anyone wire tucked their engine bays? If so I want to see how you did it. I just bought a K&N intake and all the wires just ruin the look of my engine.

I know some that have used armor all wipes to remove gunk and freshen up the look of wires they were unable to move. The armor all also helped keep the wires clean.

If anyone has done a wire tuck on one of these cars, they're not on this forum. The Corolla and Matrix have the same engine bay, maybe search those.

Post some links if you find any in their forum

I'll tuck later.
I upgraded the terminal connections, and doubled the wire sizes to ground and to the fuse box
