Thank youThe Francis kits have the best tech support of all the kits. When you order the kit it comes with a serial number that stays in their files forever. This is important if you have a kit that has unique variations from standard.
That said there are multiple kits out there that perform as well, install as easily and are well made. I'm an electronics tech by trade so the installation for me is easy. If you are a rookie and have not wired a car before the Francis kit is one of the better choices, IMHO.
Thank YouThis is like asking what kind of Beer does someone like- your going to get lots of different answers-I have a Ron Francis Access 24/7 in my Car, and have been pleased with the quality and service I've received-
I picked that model because you can pull it off of the kick panel and check the fuses l (or wherever you mount it, it has magnetic mounts and and an extended harness so you don't have to be a contortionist to check stuff)-
It has 24 circuits so you would have room to grow-
Thank youI like any of the "stand alone" fuse block style. I mean the ones where wires are screwed onto terminals on the fuse panel and NOT hard wired in. Ron Frances, American Autowire and Centech come to mind. When I get the "kit" I also like to list each terminal as either BAT, ING or ACC. This helps later on when adding a circuit. Of course ALWAYS make and keep a copy of the panel with mods.
Sounds like with them you really do get what you pay for. Not always true these days.That's where the Francis kit comes to the top. They will wire the plugs and terminals to the systems you are using. HEI and a Ford column, no problem. Call them and a tech guy will help you with customizing the kit and advise solutions to problems you may not see.
Thanks for the come back . I looked into several and ordered the KwikWireI went Kwik Wire with my Ford. They gave me a GM set of column plugs since I have a SBC in the car. Great instructions and I never had to call their tech number. This was their 14 circuit GM2 harness, about 5 years ago it was $275.
