Racing Fuse Box with Relays

(3 customer reviews)

$195.00 (USD)

A versatile pre-wired fuse box with 3 built-in relays. Designed for up to 11 high-power, relay-controlled accessories such as electric motors, pumps and fans.

  • 11 battery-fed fused power circuits with 1 control fuse circuit
  • 3 pre-wired relays — easily connect 8 more
  • Integrated control and power circuits
  • LED smart fuses that glow when blown
  • Dedicated arming switch circuit to enable/disable all relays
  • Choose main feeder and a main fuse. Optionally include your choice of main feeder (5 feet), a mini-ANL main fuse, and an inline surface-mount fuse holder.

    Choose fuse sizes for each individual load circuit. If this option is not selected, MGI will install 6 x 20A and 5 x 30A smart glow blade fuses, which is ideal for all relay loads.

    Write your own labels for each fuse. You know best what accessories you'll have. Write a short description and we'll print you a label sticker that fits on the fuse panel. If you make a mistake or want to change the label later on, no problem — we'll send you a new label by mail until you're satisfied.

Racing Fuse Box with Relays

SUPERIOR PROTECTION

The AFP12-R racing fuse box offmore-ers high-current protection for your switches, relays, and loads. With smart blade fuses that glow when they blow, you’ll save time and effort when identifying tripped circuits. There’s a single 5A control fuse to protect your switches and 11 individual power fuses. What’s more, all circuits that are internally pre-wired with high temperature GXL and/or TXL, which is rated 125°C (257°F).

RACING INSPIRED

An MGI pre-wired racing fuse panel has 3 built-in relays and can incorporate up to 8 external relays and loads with minimal wiring involved. But what’s with all the relays? With most race cars, standard OEM accessories are not needed and are stripped from the vehicle. You’re left only with high-current accessories like cooling fans, methanol pumps, HID lights, etc., which need relays for proper operation.

HIGH-QUALITY

Unlike most other custom fuse boxes that are made of plastic, MGI fuse panels are fabricated from lightweight aluminum. All you need to do is wire your loads and relays to the always reliable screw terminal strips. With 12 fuses and 11 load circuits, that’s a lot of wiring. But don’t worry — our racing fuse box is internally pre-wired and ready to go.

How does it work?

CONTROL

POWER
circuits

11 battery-direct circuits are primed to protect and link together your fuses, switches, and loads with minimal wiring involved. That’s because MGI’s racing fuse box integrates both CONTROL and POWER circuits, greatly simplifying the task of wiring external relays for all your high-current devices. Simply mount up to 8 external relays near the AFP12-R and connect to the appropriate labeled terminal.

Note — LED control switches cannot be used with ground-activated, built-in relays

Relay Fuse Box Wiring Diagrams
how to install your racing relay fuse panel

STEP 1

initial installation

Install the AFP12-R inside the cabin of the vehicle (under the dashboard). Secure the ground wire to the chassis. Then, connect your battery and main fuse to the AFP12-R. Don’t forget to connect your arming/kill switch to enable/disable all circuits. See the AFP12-R installation manual for more details.

STEP 2

Connect your starter

Connect your starter solenoid using an ignition pushbutton or key switch. Refer to the appropriate wiring diagram. In either case, the ignition switch must control an external relay, which, when activated, powers the solenoid and starts the vehicle.

STEP 3

Connect your loads

Use the tables to wire all external switches, relays, and loads. Since there exists plenty of possible wiring schemes, our tables show two contrasting cases when it comes to the number of relays used: a) Incorporating relays into ALL 11 circuits (including the 3 built-in relays), and b) Using only the minimum 3 built-in relays with the remaining 8 non-relay loads.

Keep in mind that for variable torque (pump/fan) motor loads, our 14 AWG pre-wired 20A fuses are specifically sized for 8A max motor loads while our 12 AWG pre-wired 30A fuses are sized for 12A max motor loads.

Although it’s easy to swap out fuses, we strongly recommend replacing original fuses with smaller sizes only.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Answers to Popular questions

Why buy a custom car fuse box?

Most OEM fuse boards are built from flimsy plastic in an effort to cut costs at the expense of durability. But when it comes to your prized show car, truck, or boat, quality should never be sacrificed. An MGI lightweight aluminum fuse block offers the upgraded protection that your vehicle deserves.

How do I add another circuit to an MGI race car fuse panel?

The unique design of an MGI fuse block allows for the addition of extra circuits.

Where it is deemed safe to do so (considering the circuit capacity and actual load of the user selected circuit), start by loosening the fuse block screw terminal. Then, slide in another fork crimp terminal with the sub-circuit wire, making sure that both the new and original fork terminals are back-to-back. Finally, tighten the screw and check that both fork terminals are secured. That’s it! No wire cutting required.

The ability to add extra circuits makes the AFP12-R exceptional among racing fuse boxes.

    Solid unit and does what I need it to do. lots going on so take the time to sit do wn and make your own wiring diagrams first.

  2. theowoodward (store manager)

    Really good.

  3. carlton.calhoun122 (store manager)

    Bought from mgi before, wasn’t dissapointed. This fuse box is mostly designed for relays and high-power, but if you know what you’re doing you can wire it for anything really.
