Default 2003 1.8t sandrail project need wiring to fire up motor

Hello everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am currently trying to wire up a 2003 1.8t manual trans
engine into my sandrail. I need to know what pins to connect to power or what pins I need to connect on the stock ECU. If anyone can help I would really appreciate any help I could get.

Thank you!!

I am using the bare motor and trans along with the engine harness. I have gone to the junk yard and scavenged the other half of the ECU harness. I cut it 1ft long. I am now trying to connect the correct pins on the ECU to power in hopes to start the motor. I am still not getting spark on any of the spark plugs. I really need some help on this.

I am aware that I will need to run the stock Throttle pedal and also have the immobilizer removed from my ECU. Those are some hurdles I will overcome after I get the motor to start. I am told that the motor should start even though it still has the immobilizer. I am told it will shut off seconds after it starts.
