ok :confused:

I guess the only difference is that my car is actualy swapped and ran about a week ago and was going to go out to some events this month.
Thats not the only difference. The bigger difference is that I know how to use the search function. Also, if the car ran, its not an immobilizer problem. The car can NOT start without that wiring done correctly, no chance.

the immobilizer system on 05+ STi consists of the ignition key, the ecu and an immoblizer unit (box). all 3 components must either be out of the same car or reprogrammed at a dealer. you'll also need the antenna/receiver for the key which is integrated into the light surrounding the key cylinder.

the 04 STi is also throttle by wire

you can use an 04 ecu to bypass the immoblizer system but if using an 05+ harness a few pins need to moved on the ecu end.
And oh look, a '07 sti pinout by brydon himself

Added a few more pictures and some words. I'm trying to finish this up before I leave the country on sunday.

So far 152 pictures but I have 20 more on my camera to upload.

oh cool, lets play smart ass. And how would you know its not immobolizer? ....hmm lets see....main harness is inside of the car.....immobolizer wiring isn't...now you believe me? don't come to conclusions and make yourself look smart with out knowing whats going on.

i know pin #'s. Just going to try figure out what wires are needed to let it start also connector/pin # don't tell me what exact ecu connector it is...not like they are labeled.

Finish most of the words for the pictures I have posted. I will upload the rest tomorrow and hopefully finish the write up. Thanks to Bansheeboy11 for the harness in order to take all these pictures.

If anything is unclear when you perform your merge please take a picture and send it to me to add to the guide and discuss.

Brydon,

Do you have a picture of Ground (power supply) B136/17 and where it splices? And can you take a picture of the completed harness, zoomed out so you can see the entire thing? Thanks!

I update pictures, the last one is of the entire harness after the merge.

On this merge the B136/17 did not connect to the rest of the body harness. It might only be on the 2000/2001. This was a 1999.

Okay, I had the same thing in my 98. It went to the RS engine section.

And if you could, I had a few questions in my swap thread!
