    Update,

    Started unplugging all the harness under the hood on my car. Turn ignition switch to on position. Tada, the fuse doesn't pop. Work my way backwards. Found out there's a short somewhere on the manifold wires. Because when I plug the brown harness in by the battery, it pops the fuse.

    Alright, sounds like you're on your way. Good luck going forward.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Found the short on my injector wires. Cut and butt connected it along with electrical tape. Starts like a Champ!

    Thanks for the input and everything!!

    Cool. Thanks for reporting back, so many people don't. Now where and how exactly did that happen? Is the fuel pump supply routed together with the injector wiring or was the short actually in the injector wiring and that's just on the same circuit?

    How it happen - When I put the sti pinks in, I routed the injector wires the wrong way so the wires was rubbing against the manifold, the red (positive) in particular. It cut through the wire. Sorry I don't know how to explain. If only I can post pictures but I'm at my limit. And yes it's on the same circuit.
