Default 04 Forester XT Starting Issue

2004 Forester XT started life as an Automatic. It has since had a full STi drive train swap with 2004 STi ecu. Starter had some issues with staying engaged too long, so we changed it out with an OEM starter. Now it has an intermittent issue with not engaging the starter. It won't even try turning over. If we leave it for 5-10 minutes, it will fire right up. We traced power from ignition to starter when it was having issues, and found it was getting power from the OEM security ECU. Changed that out as well. Still, intermittent no start. So we then thought it could be a relay. Here is where I have had some issues. I cannot find an accurate schematic or diagram for where the starter relay is. I thought I found the right one, but upon removing every single fuse and relay, one by one, it started every time. So, now I'm lost.

Any Ideas or if someone has dealt with a similar issue I would appreciate some help. Thanks in advance.
