Thanks Braineack and Reverent. It's nice to get past this point and get back on track. This has taken too long.

Yeah I guess I knew that. After posting, I remembered to look at the excel diagram you sent back in April that had it laid out. I switched the wires.
This has become such a drawn out endeavor that I forgetting stuff faster than I am learning. I should be used to that at my age, but this is taking much longer than I had hoped. I'm losing focus and enthusiasm with the slow process. A little apathy was developing too.
With 2 kids in college, 1 teenager, working 12 days on and 2 days off, teenage son in sports, the rare vacation, maintaining an old house, struggling to have a minimal social life, I only seem to have time to look at the car for a couple hours here and there about one weekend in the month. Previously I would put it back to stock to drive it again as it's the preferred DD.
This being the weekend, when I get back from the football game later and after mowing the lawn, I should finish getting the MTX-L wideband in. I'm running the wiring through the shift boot and spliced its ground to share with the MS. I hooked up to the switched radio power and all I have left to do is find the headlight power to attach to and solder onto the wideband wire of the MS and I will be ready to calibrate and plug in the sensor to the downpipe! I bought a new O2 sensor socket and Friday I unstuck the lousy stock rusted-on O2 sensor that absolutely wouldn't move for me at home by getting it up a friend's lift to breaker it loose without destroying it since I needed to drive it home. Since Saturday morning I've been driving with the MS in, and it's running rough and untuned so I am very ready to start tuning with the wideband in place.
This is a critical time as I want to get this step done and have the car drivable by the end of today. I probably won't be able to do anything mechanical for at least a week. I'd like to get the tuning started asap.
With this progress, probably in the next weekend or so I will put in the the new fuel injectors. If all goes well with the electronics, I will start refurbishing the turbo parts and figure out how it all goes together to attempt the installation probably in October or November. I am beginning to get excited again!
