So I'm wanting to swap my externally regulated alternator for an internally regulated alternator. My thought is I may go to a sniper efi in the future. I watched the Project Wrong Way video where he used a wire harness built by Coolerman. It seemed pretty straightforward. Does anyone know if Mark is still making these wiring harnesses and how I can get in touch with him? Alternatively, is anyone else making these harnesses?

Here is what I'm working with...old alternator with 3 pin connector, new alternator with 2 pin connector and the external regulator.

If you want to use your old harness to accommodate the externally regulated alternator, see Post #104 -> click here <-

Thanks for the help guys,

@mrboatman I could not get that link to work on my laptop but I'll take a look on my phone and see if it works.

@GA Architect this would require removing the 3-pin connector and adding a new 2 pin connector at the alternator like the one @ToyotaMatt showed above correct?
