New to the Family

I fear I may have mixed up the connector for the IAC valve with one of the injector plugs while doing the HG on my girlfriend's new convertible. Can anyone point me to which plug is which? They're both gray, two-pin connectors and the same cutout on the side, and the wires are just long enough that either one matches perfectly. I'm stumped. A photo if anyone has one would suffice. Thanks!

Edit: figured out the wiring connectors, but I guess I may as well turn this into the build/general info thread for the car.

So, backstory, I managed to convince my GF to buy a Saab for her first car, so now I have a new project to tinker on without her knowing Nickturbo900 gave us a great deal on a rather clean '99 9-3 convertible. Black on tan leather, base model with the t25 turbo. Thankfully it's still t5 so I can actually still figure out how to work on it! The only pressing issue was the popped head gasket. I'd never done one before, but with much coaching from Nick and plenty of time researching and such (Dmitry's site was ridiculously helpful, of course) we jumped in headfirst.

Now, only three days later because I can never resist taking a break to BBQ, I finally wrapped everything up and got it back together. Seems to be running just fine now, purring right along, just has a decent amount of coolant and oil to burn off from the turbo housings and exhaust (oops).

The pics:










Yep, all those jugs in the last shot are full of the dreaded 'chocolate milk' goop. Yummy.

So I guess that's it for now. I've been warned to keep my fingers out of this one, we'll see how long before I can convince her to get a Viggen kit for it.

I've done this before!

I can get you wiring colors tomorrow when I get back to work...

But yes, it will run either way... just really bad... swap the plugs back, no harm done...
