I couldn't find any split loom large enough--so I took a section of garden hose, split it down the middle and slid it around the wiring in question. Placed the split away from the motor and then taped everything in electrical tape. I'll get around to getting some polytough in the right size, but the hose is probably just as good a fix as the split loom stuff.

About as far as I went down. Seemed good enough to me. I could only find 3/4 inch split loom and it was a squeeze to get it on.

Build date of 8/14 (or was it 9/14?), but it looks like I'm going to need to do preventative maintenance as well.

As more people report in, it is becoming even more apparent that everybody needs to check their harness and ignore the build dates mentioned in the TSB.

The only other variable is that later builds that are missing the protective plastic loom may have more slack in the harness but some have reported that their late build's harness was very tight against the intake manifold.

Exactly. I just checked my 2014 model. Built in Aug. 2013. There is very little slack on the wire harness bundle. The edge has cut through the tape on the outside....

Sorry, does the red circle you put in the picture means that I do have rubbing going on or that I do have some slack?

Hard to tell from the photo. You'll have to reach down in there and feel it to see which is happening. I'm wondering if the fix at the factory was to make the wires longer so they don't rub, rather than add the loom to protect from rubbing.
