If you want to go the cheap route like I did. I bought a 4 dollar fire wire cable on amazon. Split one end open. Wire the Red wire from your firewire to your wideband (White Wire), if you have AEM. I used 2 circular end crimps to connect and disconnect them with a nut n bolt When i want to take it out of the car.

AEM

Also, is this diagram correct? I went off a model a friend of mine has, which is brown from the din + black from the wb going to ground. Then green from the din + white from the wideband for the analog. But according to the below pinout, I should be using eithe blue or black?
