You can do this as a test. Unplug the ecu. Wire in the VAFC, you can do just the power and the grounds. Turn the ignition "on", don't crank the engine. The unit should power up if it is operational.

the grounds on the afc are extremely important, since there are two and they are expected to be wired a specific way. disconnect the neg. battery cable and fully wire the afc properly. always fuse your power wires (better safe thatn sorry) and make sure all connections are good. You really shouldnt any problems, its a pretty simple straight forward installation.
