Now that you have your wires in place its time to start wiring them up.

Heres a diagram from Apexi

First Power and Earth
For the Earth, Find a screw/bolt that is screwed into the body of the car,wrap the earth wire around it (after stripping the end) and screw it back in.

Now for IGN/Power
Get your face tester and earth it somewhere on the body of the car (under the driver sill is a good place).
Now remove the plastic cover from underneath the steering wheel.
There is 4 screws as per picture below

(Picture Tomorrow) **

Now find this wire as per picture below and check it for IGN power to be 100% sure. (keys out - no power,turned to on position - power). Now strip a section off the wire ,and try not to cut it and join the live from the safc loom onto it.

(Picture Tomorrow) **

Now you should have lights on the SAFC

ECU-
RPM - Get the Green wire and connect it to both RPM wires on the ECU (consult pic above). T the wire into the ECU loom without breaking the original wire.

Air Flow In/Out - Cut the AirFlow Wire from the ECU (give yourself 6-8 inches to play with on the ecu side). Now strip the connections back a bit on both sides and do the same to the White and Yellow Wire.
Now Connect the White wire to the loom side and the Yellow Wire to the ECU side.

Reference Picture for Wiring of ECU

Warnings and Disclaimers

1.Make sure the SAFC is set to 0 when turning on the first time.
2.Do the wiring with the SAFC disconnected.Then recheck the wiring with a face tester TWICE before connecting the SAFC.
3.Be very careful of Power/IGN Wires,do not let them touch metal/earth!
4.Make it as neat as possible,keep slack to a minimum,keeps the wires out of the way so you do not catch them accidentally .
5.Solder the connections if at all possible,much stronger but definitely cover every exposed wire with tape.


Your doing this at your own risk,while the guide is correct if you are at all nervous of doing this bring it to a professional.

Troubleshooting
1. No power to SAFC
(1a. Check power with face tester.
(2b. If you have power,check all earths.
(3c. If you do not have power,try a different wire.If still no power check battery and fuses under bonnet and in cabin and in engine bay.

If you use this tutorial on another site id take it as a compliment,i just ask that you put up the site it came from,thanks.



Finishing this tomorrow.
