Firstly, I would like to apologise that the content of this post includes wiring up an OEM ECU into an alternate vehicle. I understand this forum is predominantly designed for aftermarket ECU's and I hope I don't offend anyone. The choice to stick with the standard ECU is my own and I understand there may be people out there that will disagree with my decision. I've been met with quite a bit of hostility on other forums for doing so and wished to make this declaration before I write my post here.

Would anyone care to play 'dot to dot' and make a more simple wiring diagram I can use?

I'm not limited to just using to two relays. I can use as many relays and fuses as required.
