Default Older MS3 basic wiring pinout?

I purchased a used older ms3 basic for my nb1, and it is in the old style case with two db37 connectors and a "bob" to connect to the car. I am trying to figure out the wiring for the aux harness.It only has:yellowtwisted together white and pinktwisted green and brownorangegreygreenred
I know the yellow should be wideband, but I cannot figure out which wires power and ground the wideband and which wire I can use to control my vvt solenoid (I have swapped my BP4w for a vvt engine).

Anyone have a wiring pinout for this?

Your two diagrams have some inconsistencies. For instance the VVT is listed as pin 36 on the top (MS3 plug) in Rev's table, but as pin 27 on the same plug on the msextra document. I am guessing firmware differences and Dimitris' is correct? I do not have any wires for several of those outputs, so I am assuming I need to solder some to the pins? I am not very good at soldering, so I usually pay people to do it right for me

Rev's unit. I'll just use one of my holiday gift cards to get a new soldering station and add the wire.

The MS3 from us has a different expander board, so only use the pinout I posted above.

Awesome, thanks a bunch! Do you have a basemap for that unit? The car it came out of has some weird coils and injectors. I suppose I can check differences from that to my nb2 basemap if it comes to it.

Also, is there no power and ground for the wideband on this?

About to load the tune and try to fire it. What do I need to alter to enable vvt in the settings? Do I need to set an output for vvt?

You need to wire the vvt solenoid(12V+Ground that is controlled via MS3), the port you will use is PP6 according to Reverant's diagram posted above.
You will need to configure the VVT Settings in Tunerstudio, plus dial in a VVT Intake cam table.

The solenoid is wired and the car runs, is it as simple as turning vvt on in TS?
