    :no:

    there are a couple wires that act as circuits, and a couple that act as a splice-in.

    by ciricut i mean, the orig ecu wire is cut. engine side is run to 1 wire on the vafc, and out a different wire on the vafc back to the ecu side of the harness.

    so, make sure you re-connect the circuit connections.
    the splices, you can simply remove and tape up one at a time so no signal jumps.
