Installing SVT Seats

Let me start by saying i have been searching for a while now, but all the links are either to a dead site, or just not helpful enough. I'm trying to install some SVT seats in my 05 ZX3. Can anyone post up the wiring diagram for the SVT seats, and for the 05, or else tell me which wire goes to which. Without the wiring diagram i have no idea which wire is which function. I'd really appreciate some fast help with this.

Thanks.

alright guys, i got it all figured out, except for one thing, both front seats are fully functional, passenger airbag turns on and off with weight and no weight just like it should, the seat belt warning goes off if the driver doesnt have it connected, but i cant get the air bag working right, the light stays on on the cluster, everything else works fine though.

That happend with me as well. I put some seats out of a sedan into my zx3 for a day, and they had the side airbags... Light came on and didnt go off till I took them out.

?? How would I Know. I think it is because of the side air bags, but how would the car know that there are side air bags if they arent connected to anything? Shouldn't i be able to just connect the wires for the air bag and let the side air bags not connected to anything and have it work? For the passenger seat i had to steal the seat belt assembly off of the stock seat because of that damn weight sensing pad. Will switching the putting the stock harness on the svt seat and connecting it that way eliminate the light?

myfocusrocks, did you actually have to cut open the seats and take the side airbags out?
