AEM FIC6 piggyback wiring

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A 2-ROW 52-PIN CONNECTOR - DO NOT USE ANY OF THIS INFORMATION!

After confirming with the log data that I have wired this correctly, here are the connections and ECU diagram:

Here for FIC
Here for ECU connector

ECU needs to come out from behind the bulkhead - no biggie, just plop your head up the driver's footwell and you're there.

Remove the two 10mm bolts holding the relay connector on and place it aside.
Then remove the two 10mm bolts that mount the ECU to the chassis. Yank that sucker out.
Remove the screw at the edge of the connector and pull it out. Put the ECU aside and keep it safe - DO NOT BEND ANY OF THE PINS!

Remove the lower dash to get better access to the harness.
Remove black tape from harness.

Tap ignition, both grounds and signal ground (very important to do this one correctly). Then intercept the crank using the attached diagram (handwritten, I know).
Plug the FIC in, connect up the harness connectors and start the car! She SHOULD fire. If it does not, go back and check your wiring. No matter what you have done or how many times you have checked, it is always the wiring. Always.

Intercept the cam sensor - Hall style sensor so much easier to do. Same as above, try to start car with FIC connected.

Then continue with injector 1, start car; 2, start car; etc. The rest is pretty self-explanatory (especially if you are trying to do this to begin with!)

The next step would be mounting it up. You can put it wherever you want.

Tip: I cannot stress how important it is to do it like the above! Do not, I repeat, do not try to do it all at once. I did that and it took me 4-5 hours to correct the wiring! It's bloody hard holding a soldering iron, solder and two cables all by yourself. :icon-lol:

Tip: Count the pins at the bottom of the connector - not at the top where the cables are. There are two blank pins that I can guarantee you will miss if you count from above.

Thank you!

I think my crank explanation requires a diagram, just to make it easier to understand.

Added my notes (which included the crank wiring - I had to do it on paper!) to the first post. :)

I wrote them whilst sitting on the floor of the car; I hope you appreciate the elbow grease! :laughing-rollingyellow:
