will you be shielding your 5v signal wires to the coil packs? Ive heard that ls1 coils are affected particularly badly by interference...

The 4 wire cable I bought doesn't have shielding, but thanks for the hint in case problems arise.

U don't need shielding at all.

I used these in Paris-Dakar MItsubishi Pajero 2010, and various other cars, never had a problem.

The problem is in bad ecu's, in 99.9% of cases.

Its a little late now, but the large crimp section of those wire ends should be around the shield of the wire, not the wire itself. It will help lower the stress that is put directly on the copper wire itself. Good job on soldering the connection though. :)

I know but I was unable to squeeze it into it with the shielding.

Those are actually pretty average solder joints :(
The wire isnt clean enough, or you havent heated the join enough for the solder to properly wick into the inner strands of the cable.

You probably wont have any issues (in the short-med term anyway), but its something you should try to correct in the future.

Heh, I was a bit unclear - I meant it was good he soldered them. Most (if not all) of those connections are crimped, then soldered, so it should be reliable, even if the soldering quality itself isn't perfect.

I'm just so used to the hack jobs on most cars (not on here, but in general). :bangshead:

I had lent my solder paste to a friend, seems this was the reason they aren't so well done.
Got it back today and the soldering went way smoother.

Yesterday I bought the last components and finished the loom today:

In the future, I might recommend using no-clean solder next time :) Its not as friendly on the environment cuz it contains lead, but in all honesty... it makes life soldering a WHOLE lot easier, it flows into wires almost instantly and wont pool up like that.

I did use lead-containing solder but thanks for the tip!

Joints have just not been made hot enough. Flux would help too.

On Friday I received the ignition cables:

Yesterday I've measured the last cable length and installed the harness:

Today I've soldered the four ignition wires to the Haltech and started it up.

Yesterday it didn't start because the batterie was too weak, but aber jump starting it and a short drive it fired up without problems today.

Conclusion: ignition problems are gone, it revs a bit better but the rev meter doesn't work because it's wired to an output of the stock ignition.
