Had a small fire between the turbo and the firewall. The fire charred a few things, but I'm unable to identify a badly burnt connector that I'm sure will need replacing. Any help or photos would help a great deal.

Engine also throwing a P0171 engine code which I imagine has to do with the burnt connector or other burnt vacuum hoses in the area.

Do you know the cause? That looks nasty.

A few possibilities:
1. Before you dig far into this, what is the deductible for your comprehensive insurance? You may be surprised how quickly this gets expensive if you uncover additional collateral damage (i.e. any other parts damaged by wires that may have shorted in the engine harness during the fire).
2. The harness is sold as a complete assembly, not incredibly expensive but a bit of a pain to install: https://www.gmpartsonline.net/v-201...mance--2-0l-l4-gas/electrical--wiring-harness
3. If you are going to piece in a repair yourself, you don't have to use the exact original connector because both sides are damaged. You must use an automotive type connector with proper heat resistance and weather sealing but it doesn't have to be a duplicate.
3a. Note that there is likely to be wire damage beyond the connector and patching in a new will require soldering and shrink tubing for the splices, do NOT rely upon butt crimp connectors. Depending upon the expected heat exposure, teflon wire insulation may be required. There probably isn't a LAN circuit running through this connector but if so the LAN wires generally are specified by GM to be installed as a twisted pair (reduces RFI pickup from other leads).
If you don't have a Helms factory or equivalent service manual, you would be well served to acquire it.

Виникла невелика пожежа між турбонаддувом і брандмауером. Вогонь обвуглив кілька речей, але я не можу визначити сильно обгорілий роз’єм, який, я впевнений, потрібно буде замінити. Будь-яка допомога чи фотографії дуже допоможуть.

Двигун також видає код двигуна P0171, який, на мою думку, пов’язаний із спаленим роз’ємом або іншими спаленими вакуумними шлангами в цьому районі.

I'll take a look at mine at lunch time, but the majority of connectors on the ATS are from the Molex MX150 series and several are Aptiv (formally Delphi) GT 150 series. That one's looking a bit more GT 150 to me, I'll know one when I see a non-burned one.

I guess I'm not going to be as helpful as I hopped. My connector is completely inside of some protective insulation and everything was still way to hot for me to touch.


One thing I did notice was, like yours, the bolt for the down-pipe support had almost completely backed itself out. I hand tightened it as best I could and will get a wrench on it when I get home.
