    Right now, I am trying to clean up my engine bay as much as possible. This means trying to hide all the harness, move grounds to less noticible places, ect. When I did my swap, the few wires that I had to run, aka, knock sensor, IAB wires, ect, the way I ran them looks like shit. There are wires that just run the strech of the engine bay. Now what are the secrets to doing it right?

    wrap the wires discreetly in your existing harness, and re-wrap the harness with tape.

    to use shrink wrap you need to remove some conectors because it will only shrink so much
