    Airbag Module issue after engine conversion

    Few months ago I ordered a Z20LET engine to replace my old one which was X16SZR. I had to change almost everything in the car due to this conversion, but that wasn't a problem. The problem I'm having now is that I didn't realise back then when ordering the engine that I would have to change the airbag module as well since the plug is a bit different (color coded i assume). Got some pics here to show you. The plug for the airbag module is different with this new dash loom than it was in the old loom.









    I've been trying to search for the right kind of airbag module for a long time now and I'm running out of patience. I need to know what is the difference between different airbag modules, can't I just connect the wires together or something? If finding the right module is too difficult, I assume buying a new dash loom from a same sort of car with the same engine along with the airbag module from the same car would solve the issue?

    Diagrams show all the airbag module plugs to be the same. the only difference between different ones will be if they control 1, 2, 4 or 6 airbags

    Hi Chris, nice to here from you

    If you can't find the right module, is it possible to change only the dash loom that connects to the huge plug from the engine bay? With the new dash loom also take the airbag module from the same car? (Car which has the same engine). If i'm not wrong, this should work. Unless the huge plug is different....?

    Thank you everyone for replying to this post, I appreciate it. Though I haven't got/found the right module, I'm still in need for the right module. There's one question no1 has answered yet:

    "is it possible to change only the dash loom that connects to the huge plug from the engine bay? With the new dash loom also take the airbag module from the same car? (Car which has the same engine)."
