Damm dude, I wish you lived closer. I wonder if something is wrong with the wiring and you're burning up the MAFS's? Maybe it's not mounted rigidly enough and it's rattling around and breaking the heating element?

I don't think it's the mafs I think the maf wiring is fucked somehow and I'm not good at wiring at all. And I no longer have a shop to take it too as he is busy with truck driving and trying to run his shop on the weekends so he barely has time for the cars he has in his shop now let alone a new addition. and nobody else wants to f*** with it which is weird because most work on 240s all day lol its the same s***...

Did you ever try buying a new harness? Have you called Wiring Specialties about maybe building an S12 harness?

Yea, I know they're expensive. Hard to put a price on sanity though!

A new wiring harness is hands down one of the best mods you can do to these engines/cars these days. 30 year old wiring is gremlin shangri-la.

The traffic on this board would probably drop by half if everybody here replaced their wiring harness lol.

Isn't that the truth! That stupid FB page is a big contributor. People can go on there and ask the same damn questions over and over again and people seem happy to keep repeating themselves. Bleh.
