I understand that the 88 employs an upgraded (Gen 2) headlight setup that is sought after for previous year upgrades. I considered removing a wiring harness and module from an 88 coupe today but it looks like a PIA job. Is there a particular way to do this? It looks like one end has to be routed back between the nose assembly and the radiator? Can someone recommend the correct way to do this? Doesn't seem practical from above. Maybe from below somehow? Anyway, I may or may not bother depending on the time and complexity - although the module itself is fairly easy to remove.

If anyone has any interest in the harness and/or the module let me know.

One guy I know said he pulled each wire through the slit in the harness cover and extracted one or several wires at a time, then pulled the harness cover out. A friend and I removed the hood and managed to pull the complete harness up and between the nose and front assembly.

The 1st 88 harness I pulled was a challenge. I ended up cutting the harness to get it out. The next two I pulled by removing the hood,, then loosening the upper radiator support and leaning the radiator towards the windshield by a couple inches. Turned out to be a 20 minute job with no cuts.
