Hello Everyone,

So i recently purchase an Avenger GT-12 body and a 73 Beetle pan. I'm going to put a subaru EJ25 in it. My question is what do most people do for the standard turn signals, brake lights and regular light wiring? Do you use the subaru or do you do VW and kind of merge the 2 harnesses together. I'm just trying to pre-plan how the wiring is going to work out. I will most likely ship the harness to Busaru but i was just not 100% sure on the regular running lights. What have you done?

Run the engine wiring as a separate system. Tieing the 2 together is unnecessary.
The engine does not need to know if you are turning left.
The k.i.s.s. rule is best.

Thanks for the Reply - After much searching yesterday im going to just use a simple wiring harness for the lights and separate the subaru one for the engine harness. Thanks again, This just confirmed my theory. :)
