Cam angle sensor and Crank angle sensor pins need to be swapped on the ECU plugs.

So you just swap 5 and 6 over with each other.

Thanks for your help everyone

That's what i make from the drawing...

Both sensors use the same common ground so you don't have to touch that.

Swap pins 5 and 6 from plug 136 (the blue plug)

EDIT: Beaten... Maybe someone else can use these diagrams in the future then

Sorry for the dumb questions, do the pins pull out from the plastic connector, is there a trick to doing this, or should I just cut the wires and join that way?

Again thanks

I think there's a tool out there somewhere. But 'id just cut and shut.

Probably best do it halfway between the plug and where it gets lumed up but, make it easier for yourself if you ever want to revert back to stock.

And make sure you insulate the join real good too.
