It’s a pretty big unit to forget

I think the mfu was just a clump of 3 relays in a box.
Much better having separate accessible ones

My engines out of a TF and has the MFU, I think the later ZR's have them built into the engine bay fuse box with individual relays rather than 1 big 1.

Yes I used the mgzr fusebox, it's very handy for power distribution to the in car fuse boxes via switched relays.

Main power leads I've only got battery to starter and one lead to fusebox, job done, everything else distributes from that. Making use of the outputs for the mgzr lights and abs to my in car power distribution (fuse boxes).



You can see the two black relays at the top of the pic, they are fed from the 40a abs fuse and 40a lighting fuse in the zr fusebox. They have their own built in fuses too, and supply a fuse box each in the car. The two 40a flat fuses you can see are 'igniton' and 'aux igntion' one powers my always live fusebox which in turn switches the other two on, also runs lights and ran fan manual override, things I want always on. The other one supplies the power to my airhorn relay.
The fuse box contains the yellow fuelpump, ecu, starter and rad fan relays, they are all the same so interchangeable.

Pretty impressive! No need to take your frustrations out on other peopleís engines now!
Iíve been hanging off hoses trying to release them before, they can be a pain in the ass to get off sometimes, Iíve got a little hook tool that works well at getting underneath to break the seal, they usually come much easier then.
