We recently received these pictures of a beautiful 1965 Porsche 356C from a customer. He’s had this car for a few years and wants it to be his daily driver. He’s made a bunch of modifications to this car to improve its reliability and drivability. He had the ignition system upgraded, he made suspension enhancements and he wanted the car completely rewired. He knew that he wanted the car wired with the Infinitybox system. He wanted the reliability, simplicity and modern features that the system could offer.
This blog post is going to hit the highlights of the install and the cell locations. Watch for a series of videos that will come out of this showing more details on how you can wire your car with the Infinitybox system. You can catch these videos on our blog or on our YouTube channel.
He installed the 20-Circuit Harness Kit as a base in the car. This includes one MASTERCELL and two POWERCELLs. The MASTERCELL was mounted in the front trunk area, just in front of the dashboard. This made it really easy to connect the MASTERCELL input wires to the switches, including the turn signals, head lights, high beams, brake pedal, ignition and starter. In this picture, you can see a good view of the MASTERCELL location.
This picture shows another view of the MASTERCELL. You can see the CAN cable running down the right edge of the trunk area. This is going to the front POWERCELL.
The front POWERCELL is mounted in the well behind the spare tire. The front POWERCELL is controlling the head lights, the high beams, the parking lights, the turn signals, the horns, the gauges and the wipers. This location up front is ideal because it keeps the runs of wire short.
That is also where we have the inRESERVE solenoid and the fuses protecting the power feeds from the battery. This pictures shows the location of the front POWERCELL, the battery, the inRESERVE solenoid and the primary fuses.
he rear POWERCELL is in the engine compartment, tucked away in the back-right corner. Just like the front POWERCELL, this location is ideal because everything is close to the POWERCELL. It is powering the turn signals, the brake lights, the back-up lights, the ignition and the starter solenoid. We also left a provision for an electric fuel pump for when the customer wants to add that. The longest run of wire that we had from this POWERCELL was about 4 feet to the left light cluster. This picture shows the rear POWERCELL mounted in the engine compartment.
A lot of people ask if they can mount their POWERCELLs in the engine compartment. The answer is yes. We designed and tested the POWERCELLs to survive in the extreme conditions found under the hood. This includes temperature extremes, thermal shocks, mechanical shocks, vibration and chemical exposure.
