Do you think its worth it - modify wiring harness myself or pay a pro?????

Do you think I should modify my wiring harness myself with an 11"x17" 20 page front-and-back wiring diagram so that I can get the efi 5.0 into the 64 or should I shell out the $350-400 and have my harness sent off to be cleaned, modified, and labelled so all that I need to do it hook it up and go???
It all boils down to time vs. money, whats your opinion????

Call up Painless Wiring and see if they have a wiring kit for the 5.0 conversion.

Well, you will lose you mind trying to do it yourself. Send it to the pros.

Guess it all boils down to three factors.

Can you do it?

Can you afford to have someone else do it?

Do you want to do it?

Two outta three outta answer it.

Personally... I wouldn't do it by myself...
but then again... I wouldn't pay anyone else to do it either.
You can do it yourself if you're willing to put the time into figuring the damn thing out... the resto. on the '64 has been going on for a while, so whats a few more days, right? I say try it out... and if it becomes *impossible* or you just get overwhelmed, send it off, or maybe look for some whole-in-the-wall-garage that can help you out

i think you could do it man. hell if my honda buddy can do a mpfi swap into a 88crx you can do a wire harness into a 5o.

but it does take time, and ecu wires are nothing to fool around with, one false move and you could fry the ecu. maybe 350 aint so bad for a harness job.
