IAperformance sells a plug and play kit you just remove the pin blocks and install the wires running 4 from the passenger head pin block and 4 from the drivers one right to the ECU. they use all the same pin blocks just the USDM cars they left those spots for the AVCS empty. its about the easiest swap you can do.
This. It's a plug and play affair.
