The best thing to do is to go directly into the plug of the ECU by unpinning the old wires and pinning the new ones in their place. I would not recommend cutting and splicing, as the the entire length of the insulation is deteriorating, even inside the coffin box, where it’s relatively cool. The insulation is just past it’s lifespan.
You can just lay the new bundle over the original, in a proper sheath. Once the new one is installed, you can just cut back the old, and leave it where it is.
The instructions I posted are very clear, for determining the pins and the corresponding numbers on the plug to the MAF. I still verify my work with an ohmmeter as I go.
Surprised the dealer could not help you, as the p/n posted is accurate, and I have just done the job recently. You can of course buy it from ECS tuning, it is the same part.
It does require some patience and concentration, but quite straightforward with the provided instructions. Shouldn’t take you more than a day from start to finish.
