Need a bit of a hand with this kit in my EL GLi. I mixed in a suggestion (around page 20 or so) to use the economy/power switch as the switch. This means using a relay so its a little more involved.

The grey/black wire from pin 27 controls the switch apparently, but I wasn't 100% sure on its operation. I assumed when the switch was closed that the economy setting goes on, but dont have a multimeter to test it :( Anyway so I used that as the switched power for the relay, so that when current goes through, the relay would switch to the NO (normally open, shift kit off) position. Then the other side of the circuit would run through to pin 27, just like the normal economy switch signal would. When the switch is open, the relay would switch to the NC circuit and the kit would turn on.

When I put it in, the kit was always on no matter what the switch was on, so I'm not sure if the grey/black wire is acting in the way I'm thinking. The wiring diagram below isn't exactly what I did, as I had the wire to pin 27 running from the C pin on the relay, so Ill fix it up before I put it back in, as it meant the ECU was always in Econ mode. Plus the extra ground wire seems pretty useless, but thats what it had in the other post. But as the diagram is now, is it correct?

Just buy one from www.shiftkits.com.au. They even have an install article from StreetFords on their website. Comes with instructions too. Just needs 2 wires cut and joined to the shiftkit.

I could help you if you get stuck but if I can do it anyone can.
