Default 1.8 swap in Ct

Ok I swapped a 1.8 into my 93 with all the info I could search for but there's just a few connectors of which I can't figure out where they go. Is there anyone in the Ct area near Hartford that can help me figure this out I would appreciate it. Can't wait to fire it up! Thanx!

That's a lot of connectors... I'm guessing all of those aren't connected to your motor but are from the chassis wiring. The one behind the motor is probably your CAS (you have to extend the wires to reach), and the other ones I'm not sure of.
