Need Wiring Loom/ECU Advice!

This is Randy again (read my other post about buying a Caterham 7 and putting a Zetec into it first please for background, didnt want to combine the two posts)...:)

The situation i described in the previous post has hit a snag, but surely its easy to overcome...

In talking with Randy Robles today we realized that the ECU and wiring harness that i had (it came out of another Zetec Caterham 7 and was already cut down to fit it) would NOT work with the SCT chip...ugh...

Randy said my next step is to find the following...

A wiring loom for a 2000-2002 Focus Zetec overhead cam (manual tranny), and also its matching ECU and 'keys'...

Not 100% sure what Randy means by keys but will ask him tomorrow...

I would really prefer to not have to get my mechanic to go and pull and wiring loom and ECU from a junkyard car...

Is there anywhere you can order the whole package of something like that, all matching? Cant spend too much on it too...

If a junkyard from a donor car is the only way, how hard is it to pull and entire wiring loom and get the ECU and all the stuff for the 'keys'? How many hours involved?

Where can i find what i need? How do i find it?

My other immediate option is to use the ECU/wiring loom i have already. It has some sort of diablo chip that was tuned for a head that had stage 2 cams, was shaved, and was ported with bigger valves etc, but i dont know the details right now of the head mods. Should i just stay with that and get it dyno tuned locally? Thinking the diablo chip locally dyno tuned will not be nearly as good an option as a SCT chip. The problem is, if i try the diablo chip that was previously tuned to a different head and the wiring loom that goes with it, if it didnt work, i would have to take all that out and start over to get a loom/ECU etc that Randy Robles can work with...

All advice appreciated! I really wanted to work with Randy Robles on getting it all synced up and tuned, dang it!
