AAW Atta-boy

I bought a new OEM engine wiring harness and front light wiring harness a while back, and just got around to putting them on the car - '69 RS/Z. I haven't gotten the motor back in to test them out, but I must say, they fit perfectly. All the little mounting tabs were dead-on, and all the connections fit like a glove. It's a relief to have a repo part fit that well right out of the box!

Re: AAW Atta-boy

Congratulations on buying the best. I have been dealing with Mike and Frank, owners of AAW since they started in their garage over 20 years ago. I have used them in our award winning concourse restorations and high end Pro Touring cars and never lose a point for wiring. One of the very best products we sell. These guys have the original blueprints form GM and do not scrip one penny on making them perfect.

Re: AAW Atta-boy

for the few dollars more you pay on any Factory Fit (AAW) wiring kits its all worth the peace of mind

Re: AAW Atta-boy

Very happy with mine also. Went with the factory fit but switched to console gauges, with clock and tac in the instrument panel.
I was told that I need a "filter" for the tac because I am running an HEI. ign....anyone have info on that??

Re: AAW Atta-boy

It is going to depend on what tac and HEI you are running
I have an Autometer Phantom II tach, with MSD ignition...no problem
If you have a stock HEI distributor a filter will probably be needed. There is alot of info on the site if you search tach filter

Re: AAW Atta-boy

When I bought my 67 it was all running off of one 20 amp tube fuse!! Needless to say I didn't get far for very long. After fighting with that fuse on the side of the road more times than I could count I started looking for something to fix the problem with. I found the AAW full rewire kit. It was only about $500.00 and the directions were crystal clear. I rewired my entire car in my driveway over the winter just working on it a couple hours here and there. Everything fit like a glove and the only thing I had questions about which was the RS headlights they walked me through over the phone. I havent had a single problem since the install two years ago. I tell everybody to get AAW they are the best!! Also that kit comes with every wire stamped a couple of inches to ID and new ignition and headlight switch.

Re: AAW Atta-boy

I'm doing my 69 right now and am very happy with how it is going. I got the AAW classic update from Frank at Prodigy. I have had to make a few phone calls just to make sure I was doing it right and their tech. dept.has been very helpful. Would recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade their electrical system.
