      Hey, Im swapping a 4.6 into a v6 donor car and im not sure whether or not a 2010 harness will work. Im buying engine/trans/harness/ecu-pcm/... pretty much everything i need for the swap. Im planning the pick up for tomorrow. Would you have any insight ? If youre able to let me know asap you could be saving me a lot of moolah. Thanks, Blake

        Generally, it's easier to get a year-compatible PCM and engine harness for your car (2005, 2006, or 2007-2010).
        However, any harness can be made to work; there's a few circuit differences, mainly relating to cruise control and a/c, but for the most part, the cross-years can work together, with some modifications.

        Feel free to reach out for more questions.

      Good Morning,
      New member here.
      I hope you don't mind me asking a question. I saw your name when it came to wiring fog lights.
      I have a 2005 V6 and I'm putting fog lights in.
      Can I use the factory lights\fogs switch from a 2008?
      I found it at the local parts yard. I wasn't sure about the pin outs on the connectors.
      Thanks,
      Bill

        Sorry, Bill, just saw your question. You can use any 05-09 GT stock light switch, or even a pony-package v6 with fog lights. In addition to the switch, you'll need to do a little more wiring to get it to work like stock, but it's not that hard to do.
        ..continued..

        Essentially, the 'foglight-switch' function is programmed/wired into the SJB, such that the foglight control is not present between the switch and foglight relay in the BEC; so you can run a wire from the light switch to the BEC to trigger the proper relay; and then on the switched-side of the relay, there will already be +12v fed in, so you just need to run wires to the lights;

        ..adding a wire-and-pin to the BEC connector underneath is the cleanest way to do that; I have that part of a GT foglight harness if you need one.
        Feel free to reach out for more questions.

      Lol, just saw this. Nice pic! Indeed the 'tides have turned', to the point where I can hardly race the car there anymore, just too dangerous for the power. And I sold the supercharger a couple years ago. But just picked up a turbocharged '06 4.0L; now I have 2 toys to play with.
      I'll get back out to TAD eventually, swing by and say hey.
