Still working on those. The hang up is the plug. Kurt has spoke with a large number of plug manufacturers to no avail.


Kurt also ships internationally

Email Kurt. He has the plugs and orings and will get them shipped out

After 3 different sessions of flashing ETC (lightning bolt) in the past 2 days it finally showed a code and it's THE one P2015... so I need make or get a swirl resistor pigtail if any are still available? Otherwise I will make one. Seems like the thread got a little confused between resistor and aluminum plug.... or maybe I just did. Any help is appreciated and will send over paypal ASAP if anyone has an extra one. Thanks -- Andy

Hey Andy, its just the aluminum plugs available right now. You still need to make your own resistor apparatus.
I plan on using a large heat shrink over the plug and resistor when I do it.

Thanks Ron. I bought the 4.7 ohm resistors last night at Radio Shack but only got 1/4 watt and read now that I probably should have picked up a higher watt (like maybe 1). Is there any concensus on which has been working. These are the leaded resistors (round) not the surface mount flat one's which would need to soldered to a single sided circuit board.

Whoever came up with this is the MAN! Thanks so much. Just put the resistor in after the past week of flashing lightning bolts and the CEL came on and limp mode this morning. At lunch I installed it (20 minutes), cleared the 2015 code and started prefectly and all good after a 10 mile rip - like it never happened. Runs as good as ever. Not really happy about just taping it up so definitely still would like to get a more permenant solution (connector) but for now just saved me hundreds and hundreds of dollars. I will probably have the swirl replaced if I ever sell it but this gives me time.

Just go an Email from Kurt, I believe we should be a few steps closer to the swirl motor resistor plug. He should be trying to get a plug so that we can do a test fit.

Great news!

Just got my plug today, looks great! Gonna try to test fit it tonight.

Couldn't we just get the exact dimensions of the swirl receiver (on the top of the pic below) and then find an existing person with a CUBE to make us up a few dozen or however many. Takes about 1-2 hrs to print one of these at most. See 3D model maker link http://cubify.com/cube/ - better use of it than making toys. At $1300 it's the same price as 1 NEW swirl motor install and we could make dozens and it's ABS plastic to boot. Man I wish I could drop the cash on it but not yet.

I have made a couple for myself. I just couldn't wait for one of these. I have been testing it for a couple of weeks to make sure I don't any problems. I machine mine, but am looking at using a 3D printer or just machining some more. I installed the resistor with some pins to interface the stock plug. It is totally waterproof and will keep the connection from corroding. I made a prototype to make sure it fits correctly and machined a clean one that is actually in my Jeep and was what I have been testing. I still have to figure out costs and stuff like that.

The CAD design.

My first rough prototype
