I'm going to wire it up Saturday. I'll take pics and post them.
Plan is to keep the stock ecu in to keep airbags,abs,stock dash,etc. efi034 is going to run fuel and spark, fuelpumps, idle control
Not sure yet what the M7 is going to do with his arms and legs chopped off?

do they give you some maps so that you can start the car and tune from there?? do you have a wideband to tune to.

I can wire it in a day, I've already drawn up how I want to do it. But lots of other work to be done:
1: install pedal assy
2: install tb and cable
3: install coils and wires
4: reroute inline fuel pump
5: reroute some vacuum lines
6: install switches for WI, antilag, and second map
7: install egt gauge
8: pressure test cold side
9:fine tune it using LM-1 :)

Mechanically it's the gas pedal assy, cable, throttle body, and securing the the tb cable bracket to the manifold.

all the mechanical stuff is pretty easy but the wiring i hate because you have to hunt everything down, did you decide wher you are gonna mount the ecu, I was thinking of putting it inside on the passenger side but I dont know how im gonna get the wires for the coilpacks and the sensors and what not outside the car, do you have any idea?? Thanks good luck by the way, keep us informed
What model year car do you have, any info you can document on the wiring and running the wire I know would help me at the very least if you dont mind helping a brotha out.
Can you put pliers on the torx bit and break it that way were you able to use just the pedals or did you need to use the whole bracket??? I cant tell where the other side of that bolt goes can you grab it from the back and turn it, and what is that silver nut by the head of the bolt, can you turn it???
Did she turn over for you?? Can you still use the factory knock sensors even though the fueling has been removed, I was hoping you could it would make me feel better, have you tried to hook up through VAG com and see what it says.

I have a 2000. I made all the connections in the ecu Plenum. It's not really difficult with the Bently Manual. I only found one error in the manual.
I didn't try to start it yet, I don't have the Throttle Body on.
I'm not using the knock sensors. If your standalone supports knock sensors then you could hook them up.
Looks like the pedal bracket is diff and you can't just change the pedal.

another option is to drill a couple holes through the sides of the torx bit so that you can use a hard metal rod (feeler gage pin) to spin it out.

obviously the ecu cant do anything about it but it can still be used right?? that was my thought,Im actually going to install a AEB manifold with the TB on my car, did you think about that route or no??
Crap you serious about the pedal, so do you have to install the who silver part that i saw in your picture, man that is gonna suck for me now i need to find one of those.

I've been thinking about that as well. The knock sensors are calibrated for the stock hp levels. Running the setups we are talkin about they are going to max out. So maybe insulate them so they read lower numbers and then watch for big spikes.
Definately need the pedal bracket!
Running the AEB manifold allows you to bolt up the throttle cable, but if you don't have a aeb head the air is going to be smackin rite into the head unless you get it ported out.
I'll post more info on the wiring routing etc when I get it done.
Now I'm having a problem getting the master cylinder shaft off the brake pedal, cause I don't have the "special tool"
