hi, I have installed a SR20DET from a S14a into a Mk2 Ford Escort. The EFI loom supplied with the engine has some damaged wires and connectors. I also need to shorten the loom quite a bit. The injector and coils are on separate sub harnesses connecting into the main loom via connectors of which some are broken. So, my question is, can I do away with the sub harnesses and wire them straight into the main loom which will omit buying new connectors? Your thoughts/advise would be very much appreciated.

certainly you can splice wires to remove connectors, or you could change to more robust connectors.

Many thanks for the advice. I was either thinking of running totally new wires eliminating any splicing or replace both male and female oem connectors with universal ones.

I have the same engine and and never received benefits of those sub connections for Injectors and coils. So you can eliminate those easily. Less connectors - more reliable harness is.
