Hello!
This 200sx s13 with a ca18det is for auction sale at a local insurance company, as you can see the engine is fire-damaged but not severely. The question is if there's a lot of things that are damaged that you can't see in the picture like for example stuff behind the firewall? Otherwise, the car is in very good condition, so do you think it is an "easy" fix or if there are a lot of things that are damaged that cannot be seen in the picture.

Appreciate your help, thanks!

If the electrical was live at time of fire there could be plenty of electrical damage the fire never touched.
Ah ok, but do you think the damage is mainly in the engine harness which would only require an engine harness replacement, or if it's more internal than that?

Hundreds or thousands of man, or woman hours spent chasing burned wires, sensors and shorts.

Move along, unless you want a lifelong project car...you know, one that takes years to get running.

X2, by electrical damage I don't mean wire, rather any chips at the ends of those wires. Like in the ECM or BCM if it has one. Receiving signals way out of the expected range or unneeded grounds and shorts is a great way to blow them out.
