Yup, it's the last thing I thought would happen.

Now that I think about it, cleaning the IAC might not have helped, I think I forgot to put the vacuum line back on the y-pipe for the boost controller..

I'm heading to the junkyard today to cut a maf connector and then buy some battery terminal boots/covers. Then it's just soldering the new lines back together and see if it does start and if so how well if runs.

Since some one the wires got hot it might have changed the resistance of the wires. One of the wires that got hot leads to the fuse box... so I'm hoping that's fine.

I'm thankful, it was caught in time before it took the whole car.

Bro just cause the wire got hot doesn't mean resistance changed never heard of this. What will effect resistance is the size and type and what loads material and temperature..... So you'll be fine just splice new wires together from whciever the old ones got melted and she should start I have confidence in you!
