Default 06 sti into 2000rs wireing question

Ok here is what I got. did a complete sti swap into my 2000rs including wireing harness and dash swap. The guy that I bought the 06 harness from did not include the fuel tank cord so i'm stuck with my swap.
I was thinking of just keeping my 2000rs fuel tank cord by just sodering the wires from the 06 sti on to the rs cord, but i have no clue on what wire goes were. Can anyone help. Oh and i have no experience reading a wireing diagram

Look at the above diagrams. You'll need to get the controller and basically wire that into the system but double check to make sure everything is going where it needs to. You also might have to change some wiring on the fuel pump relay. I think I did with my swap.

After a year of off and on work it finally paid off and my RSti finally came to life. There were times where I almost gave up but my wife geve me the moral support needed. man she souds beasty i couldn't belive it when i heard the first vroom it was like some when had taken a 100lb stone off my back. Now comes the simple process of putting it back together and the joy of completing a swap all on my own thanks to all the poeple that helpped with all the great info.

I just found out that if you disconect the air intake without disconecting your MAF connector your car will start for one or two seconds then the car will die. I was starting to get worried but as soon as i plugged it back in the car started up right away. Why is this? and is ther other tricks like these that I should know about

I believe this happens b/c the MAF is a blow thru sensor, and with the Intake plumbing disconnected, the vacuum that is normally subjected to the MAF causing positive airflow thru it, is lost. This causes the ECU to read that there is NO incoming air, and it cuts the fuel flow off to keep from a 100% Rich condition occuring.

I'm not sure though, just an idea.

sounds about right if the maf is out of the path of the intake, it is reading from the maf but the readings dont make sense so it panics. basically the same as if you just unplug the MAF, then there is no signal so it goes to limp mode and doesnt let you rev above 4000 or 4500 and car runs like crap overall
