Episode 17: Next-Gen Wiring (Or Not), Front EDM Mounting, and Octovalve Preview
Here is episode 17 of Munro’s Tesla Model Y Performance teardown, where Munro & Associates CEO Sandy Munro comments on the construction of the low voltage wiring harness, mounting cross-compatibility for the front Electric Drive Module (EDM) and the infamous octovalve assembly.
Sandy starts this segment with a discussion about the Model Y’s wiring, commenting that he was “kinda disappointed” as he expected a tremendous reduction. During this first pass, he doesn’t see that this is the case, but does point out that the gauge looks smaller. He also comments that he was disappointed that he didn’t see a dual directional cable that would enable the Model Y to power a house or another car.
Moving to the front of the vehicle, Sandy notes that the Model Y had the potential to pop in a second induction motor in the single motor application. He also previews the octovalve, which feeds power to everything that had to be cooled or heated. He notes some initial observations that have made him happy and anticipates that the disassembly may be done this week.
