we just started from scratch and made our own. The only thing that we have changed is we covered the loom with a plastic covering

It is really pretty easy to do. Are you in the San Diego area? Wiring is what I do and I would be willing to help you wire or just give you some advise. Please feel free to ask all the questions you like stupid or not. Later.

The size of the wire will depend on what that particular wires job is. When in doubt always use a size bigger than you need.

These are Maximum amperages for a 12v system. When operating at 13.6v your equivalent amperage is actually more energy than the same amperage at 12v. I always run at least 1 size larger than needed based on tables like these. and always run a 10 gauge for the alternator. Pretty much everything on a class 11 except probably auxiliary lights are going to be around 16 gauge.... ignition, oil cooler, pumpers, radio all take more juice.

Electric ignition, fuel pump, gps, intercom, warning lights, take very little power.

Remember that when you're running things on the same circuit you have to add up the amperage.

Gauge 12V
22 5A
20 8A
18 10A
16 20A
14 40A
12 60A
10 100A
8 150A

Great info Brenner.
One other thing you migth give it a try, is to have cable thats used for RV wiring, the cable its a bunch of wire 12 + in one pice, this looks really good, eliminated the possibility of breaking cables, easier to install, etc. We purshase some in El cajon in a RV dealer and it works great. Instead of running a bunch of cable from the front to the back and used those plastic cover, this looks much better, plus it comes in gages that can suppport the amperage.

Alright, check my numbers..

I am going to run two sets of shielded trailer wire cables from under the hood to the rear of the car. A 4 wire, 14 gauge cable to the rear compartment, and a 7 wire (1-8 gauge, 2-10 gauge, and 4-12 gauge) to the engine compartment.

Engine compartment
8 - power to the fuseboxes
10 - alt
10 - starter
12 - coil (switch the alt wire to the 12 gauge wire??)
12 - oil press
12 - Brake lights
12 - Running lights??

Rear compartment
14 - oil cooler fan
14 - pumper
14 - lights (Amber/Flashing blue)
14 - fuel pump

I have six things switched outside of the ignition on/off,
oil cooler,
Fuel Pump
Pumper
3 switches for lights (headlights and 2 hids which are individually switched)

Under the hood will be seperate wiring for the:
headlights
HID's
Radio/GPS
horn
(and the brake light switch which will be integrated into the rear harness)

What am I missing??

Don't change the alternator to less than 10. The starter solenoid can be way less than 10 but if you're talking about the starter main power you need big stuff for that one. Like 4.

I would switch the pumper and oil cooler to 12 but 14 will do. You could switch them with the coil and brake lights easy.

Go by amperage ratings. pumper is about 6 amps and so is the oil cooler. WAY more than the coil, warning lights, brake lights, fuel pump.

Also remember, the gps and intercom are nearly nothing, the radio is little until it transmits, then it goes big!

The alt lead is the exciter, the one that goes through the ALT light. The big wire from the battery to the alt would be well, bigger. Starter is the same, It'll be a big wire to the battery, and a smaller wire to the solenoid itself.

The fan and pumper have really small wires coming off of their motors.. I know the length matters, but hopefully the 14 gauge will be acceptable. The fan is not large on either one.

IS 8 gauge big enough to run to the ignition and fuse box?
