    Dash loom upgrade?

    As some of you may be aware I've been doing some electrical mods lately such as cruise control and currently attempting MID conversion. The dash loom in my Z16XE didn't have the clutch switch, cruise control stalk or MID stalk connectors and only has the 12-pin MDF connector, whereas I suspect the SRi loom would have it all.

    Is it possible to remove the SXi loom and replace with the SRi loom, for example:

    1. Are the X2 bulkhead connectors matched for pin locations (pin 11,13 and 17 cruise control stalk, etc are the same on both looms)?
    2. Is this a very time consuming job to do?
    I realise it'll take some time and effort but I like a challenge .

    Cheers in advance for any info.......

    I've just been told on at least one SRi without MID and MID stalk connectors so that might 'blow this idea right out of the water'.

    Hmmmmmmm!

    Thanks Andy - I'm starting to think I should just PM you straight away but I'm thinking if I'm asking someone else might have a similar question too.

    So, should a SRi (with MID) loom be a straight swap for my SXi loom? Or would the X2 bulkhead connector be a different configuration?

    I guessing it would be standard bulkhead connector configuration, just missing the extra goodies for the higher specs but don't have any wiring diagrams to compare.......

    If you get one around the same year you should be ok and I believe in 2002 trip computers were standard on the sri's

    I just remember when dealing with Pete's Coupe on a 2000 my diagrams only went back to 2001 and some pin outs were different on connector X1

    Sorry for chipping in on a slightly old post but I have an '02 SRi (2.2) and it doesn't have the computer or the wiring, had to put it in manually.
