Can you put a digifant ecu in a DJ system?

The R/Y wire feeds power into the headlight switch and should be hot at all times. The headlights are supplied via the ignition switch and are totally separate from the tail lights.

Power comes in to the headlight switch on a R/Y wire attached to terminal #30 and goes out to the fuses for the tail lights on a GY wire attached to terminal #58.

You exhaust should only attach to the engine so that as the engine moves so does the entirety of the exhaust. VW did a really crappy job of designing the exhaust supports for the 1.9L engine so they ...

To a casual observer it appears one could drill out the remains of that stud and continue drilling through to the other side - allowing a nut and bolt to be used to secure the adjusting bracket.
