Default Ok, Problem for Pete.

SO i installed the Skunk2 Intake mani today........well I got a problem. I installed it fine and everything BUTTTTTT. I started the car and it goes FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMM all the way to redline (Obviously i shut it off) Heres where i think the problem is.........I unplugged all the sensors from the stock manifold, and let all the cables hang loose, because i figured theres no need to mark em bcuz theyre prolly all different male/female connections.......well turns out theyre not, theyre all the same, so i prolly hooked up a few wrong, there are three of em.......and of course i had to extend the wire in each one because NOTHING fits on the skunk2 mani without messing with it in some way....this manifold is a big headace............any idea why my car is revving so high? I also broke some stupid sensor i gotta replace but i think it was the EGR, which really shouldnt be messing with the throttle like that right? Does someone wanna go outside and tell me what sensors have what color wires on their EG civic? Otherwise im just going to have to switch em around until i get it right..............damn long post.

theyre all behind the manifold, but i need pics of the wires, so i know which ones go where, there are 3 sensors, theyre alll plugged into a plastic piece mounted on the intake manifold. Pics would make u the man, and id owe ya a few beers.

well i tried. its cold and dark outside and it was kinda hard to really get pix even lol. but i hope with this it won't be too bad. then just use trial and error for the other two, unless thats a bad idea. don't know if it would hurt anything.
