I think you need to sort this connector out before you continue.
Sadly I don't have full wiring diagrams for later GTEs only the ECU bit.
I can tell you that pin 7 on the astra connector is the ign supply to the ecu & coil module.
This should be connected to the black wire on the cavalier connector pin 8.
The other black wire on the astra maybe for the reversing lights ? ? Pin 10 ? And this should be connected to the black/yellow wire on the cavalier connector pin 12

Thanks for your help Andy, it certainly looks like this connector is causing a problem. We'll try what you suggested and pray we havn't fried the ECU with our previous monkey work! Thanks again!
Wahoo, spark acheived but apparently it wont fire up?
But sparks, that's good!
So at the mo we have the fuel pump comming on (its only getting about 8v tho) and we have a spark.
What would stop it firing up now? Injectors>ECU?
Something to do with the fuel then I expect.
Fuel pipes connected the right way round
We had a guy look at it today who is a vauxhall mechanic, he said it wont fire up on the GTE loom unless it was re-wired quite a bit. Thanks for your help Andy, we are going to knock it on the head for a bit now since my mate is after a throttle body or carb kit which of course means new loom.
