    depends. spec55 is the low flourine version of Spec44 wire. Not important until the wire starts to outgas the flourine (ie fire)

    It is good wire though. And if the price is right.. why not. Fits the Autosport connectors that MoTeC uses like Spec 55.

    some comparo

    Hi Ringo

    A bit late reply but Deutsch DTM connectors correct (grey ones with the orange inside)?

    Great thread.

    I'll add this and maybe someone will tell me it's a bad idea, but I switched to a thermal stripper for tefzel wire 3-4 years ago and never looked back. It's very easy to use and no chance at all of a nicked wire.

    Very good write up, great to see all this information in one place.
    As I am a GA avionics installer, I deal with alot of this on a daily basis.
    One observation that I find interesting is that the contact color code also matches the resister color code.
    Length of wire run comes into consideration for current carrying capability and whether or not it's in a conduit or free air. Wires lengths going into a car should'nt have to be so greatly scrutinized though since they are relatively short runs unless of course the wire is being pushed to it's limit.
    Thanks again for spending the time on this great reference information.

    Hey figgie, would it be possible and maybe even beneficial to use one of those Autosport Connectors through the fire wall. Meaning where your harness sticks through the firewall, put a connector there?
