I wired mine to the red accessory wire in the ECU (I also didn't have a relay). I like this because my angel eye's are always on when the car is on...and they even stay on for 5-10 seconds after the car is off, which I think is kinda cool.

2. Did you tap both AE (+) wires (L+R) to the same red aux wire in ECU?
Did you just cut the red aux wire and used a 4-way connector (2 for L+R AE and 2 for ECU aux wire)?
I used the same chassis screw as the DIY did. I ran a single wire from that screw and then butt spliced the two (-) AE wires into that one wire.
I tapped a single wire with a 10 amp in-line fuse into the red wire and then ran it out of the ECU. Once outside the ECU I butt spliced both (+) AE wires into this wire.
I used the same tap in splice connector that the DIY used.
Hope that helped. Let me know if you have any more questions.
do you find that the 10 amps creates a load that dimms your AE a little?
I don't know. After a lot of research someone recommended using a 10 amp fuse to avoid frying something else...I just followed the advice because I didn't know any better.
I haven't noticed them to be any dimmer. When I first tested them out I hooked them straight to the battery and they seem just as bright using the 10 amp fuse. I HAVEN'T compared them side by side, so I can't say for sure if one is brighter than the other.
I don't know, sorry.
