LSe90.com Swap Wiring Information


This information is to supplement the Holley wiring video below. These are some of the major connections you will need to make to make your Holley Terminator X max function in the e9x/e8x chassis. As variations are found will update this page.

The wiring that is left on the chassis side after the engine harness is removed will be slightly different based on if that car was automatic or manual, and they year of the car. The basic breakdowns are found below.

 

Pre  03/07 (n54/n52) - x6031

Post 03/07 (n54/n52) - x6031

 

 

 


Drive By wire connections

BMW X60001 Holley DBW Harness
­­­pin 7 – White/yellow Blue - pin b tps #2
Pin 10 – Brown/yellow Black – pin a/d sensor ground
Pint 11 – Yellow Orange – pin c/f sensor 5v
Pin 20 – White Yellow – pin e tps # 1
Pin 23 – Brown Black – pin a/d sensor ground
Pin 24 – Yellow/green Orange – pin c/f sensor 5v

Holley Key on power- UPDATE recommend to use the cigarette lighter fuse at fuse 8 or 30 depending on year with a fuse tap for a key on ignition source.

  • E90 connector x6011 pin 6 green/white.  Check this with a test light with the key on, you should have 12v, key off no power.

BMW cooling fan to holley connections

  • The BMW cooling fans power and ground connections are not modified but the speed control is done by a single pwm control wire.
  • You will need to configure a custom output in the Holley software to be a PWM signal to control the speed of the BMW fan.

BMW starter CAS to brake switch mods

This is required on an automatic car to get the factory start button functioning, factory manual cars staying manual will not need this step. Factory manual cars going automatic will be at the end of this section

  • Connect pin 4, brake light signal, on connector X60001 to:

Depending on if your car was automatic or manual, 325i or 335i, this wire can change. You are looking for the wire that eventually goes to pin 41 on the cas.

On pre 03/07 cars this is most commonly pin 1, blue/black on connector X6031. On post 03/05 with the 12 wire x6031 this is pin 5 blue/black wire on X6031. Please be sure to make SURE this goes to pin 41 on the CAS, you don't want to send 12v into the wrong wire

Pre03/07 (n54/n52) - x6011

Post 03/07 (n54/n52) - x6011

  • This will send a 12v brake signal to pin 41 on the CAS when the brake pedal is pressed.
    • Connect a 10ga wire from pin 3(pre 03/07) or pin 1 (post 03/07) larger gauge black wire on X6011 to your starter solenoid connection.

Manual transmission car going automatic will need to do the following. There is a blue-brown wire (pin 18) on the DME connector x60001, that wire needs to get connected to the blue-red wire (pin 4) on the same connector which is the brake signal.  Then, on the clutch switch you can remove the connector and connect the blue-brown wire to the blue-black wire.  What this is going to do is send the brake signal from the dme connector, to the blue brown on the old clutch switch, to the blue black, which is to the cas pin 41.

BMW Automatic Transmission PT Can bus termination

  • This is required on an automatic car to keep the PT can network functional. Without this many issues will come up but the most notable is the windshield wipers will never turn off.
    • On connector x6021, connect pin 1 to 3 and 2 to 4.  This will connect the red to red wire and the blue/red to the blue/red wire.
