Not being a 6 cyl man myself, the only thing I can think of is....

Are you using an EB ECU harness and an EL engine harness?

If so, you'll probably need to fit an EB engine harness on, and from what I have been told by the guys here is the EB one will fit nicely.

Put the wire loom from the EB intake manifold onto the EL intake manifold.
You will need to shorten/lengthen maybe a few wires.

Once done with that run a wire from the ECU to the engine bay to switch the BBM.
