well if you have the vtech head... which you should...
you have to follow the wire that goes from teh vtec solenoid to the main harness, if your car did NOT come with vtec, then your harness is missing the wire from your ecu to the plug in your engine compartment which runs teh vtec. so you will find the spot in the harness where there is a little plastic "plug" to fill teh hole where there is no wire.
then you have to find and electronic schematic of ecu plug, so that you know what "socket" your vtec wire is supposed to be in. then you just made a lead, run the wire into that "socket" and then run it up, through your firewall, to your vtec solenoid and solder the wires together.

i wish i had pictures of what you have to, because i just did it in my car recently.

this is very confusing to read but its correct. maybe someone else can re-word it for me.

Spend the money and get the RYWIRE harness - it comes with the directions you need and phone SUPPORT.

Rywire - Online Store

It's only $40. The harness will look WAY better than any hackup you will do on your own. Besides - it has all the proper connectors ALREADY ON IT. You could spend HOURS trying to figure it out and not have anything done - or you cuold just get the harness and install it - be up and vtec'd within an hour. I personally would wire it up myself without the rywire but I have done ALOT of swaps and don't need a pre fabbed harness. But take it from me - if you are asking this question - buy the harness and be done with it.
KEEP US POSTED.

don't hate

It says d series, they should say if it doesn't fit one or more engines, but no it doesn't specify your a6 hey just throwing out the oil line just incase it was overlooked, so don't hate on me. are you trying to start a flame session?

I heard that

the last owner rigged my car to hell payed 1200 for it and prob stick that much undoing what he did. got a primer black hood, painted it over a good hood and paint. I found sockets stuck to suspension componets, broken bolts on suspension, broken sunroof with home caulk to hold the piece of spray painted wood, no interior locks, broken passenger door handle, that shitty carbon fiber tape on the gas cap, one tinted window, the only good thing is a header and aem cai, and the biggest f-ing kicker he broke the head off the lca and stripped the allen heads on the shocks so I get to cut the damn shocks off to replace them, The dumb ass only put the front lowering springs on and f-ed up the rear so the car was sitting front down ass up. now some retard thief f-ed up my rear hatch lock and sheet metal and popped the passenger door lock inside the door and f-ed up the roof trying to climb into the sunroof dented the damn roof. surprisingly the dumb ass didnt get in. INTELLAGENCE. so I hear ya on dumb past owners and stupid ass thiefs
