Here you go,
Because this was a trial I didn't want to cut the wiring so decided i would fit the resistor by inserting the tails of the resistor into the pin holes of the plug.
on my car the plug wiring was below a bracket that secures the turbo and swirl motor to the head so the bracket had to be removed to allow the plug and wiring to be accessible,the bracket was refitted with the plug removed but it is possible to refit the plug with the bracket in place if required.
It's possible that a car that's had the swirl motor replaced may have the plug accessible without removing the bracket.
all i did was double over the end of the tails and push them into the pin holes and secured it with some insulating tape wrapped around the plug and resistor,the plug is laid on top of the fuel filter, if i need to refit the plug it is just a five minute job to remove the intake pipe and refit the plug.
The resistor is connected to the live and signal wires which are red
on the crd, these are actually the two centre connections on the plug, it is a four pin plug with three wires.
I'm not the best at explaining things so hopefully you can follow my direction and good luck if you give it a try.
