    Vr 3.8 swapped b2200
    Hi there, i am currently swapping a vr v6 into my b2200 ute, i have the engine loom and just recently brought a cluster loom and found that they don't directly connect (which i thought they would), so im either looking to know what bit of wiring i need or a wiring diagram so i can join the looms together if possible.

    Cheers

    With VATS/security disabled, you won't need a BCM and keyhead.

    Yep there are JC members in NZ who can do this for you or get one to you. Mace Engineering might deliver to NZ.
