Eg / GSR swap is almost complete! Few various Q's with pics inside!

My father and I spent a good amount of time working on the Eg / GSR today.
Today we:
--wired in the vtec wires (except IAB solenoid)
--tightened alternator
--installed AEM cold air intake
--bled clutch
--installed battery
--"S" coolant hose installed
--got the "bitch pin" in all the way :thumbup: (shift linkage is complete)
--torqued 32mm hub nuts
--changed oil filter and installed new one
--disconnected the Cx exhaust completely to make way for custom exhaust coming Wed.
--hooked radiator up

I think that is about it for today. Doesn't seem like that much, but we were outside most of the day. Anyhow, on to the Q's and pics:

Any idea where that one piece goes? When I took the banjo nut off the fuel pump / filter (forget what it's called) that thing went flying and I could never figure out where it went. This happened about 2 weeks ago.

This wire here. Where does it go?

Here's another wire. In the pic it connects to the + battery terminal as shown and I am also showing the opposite end of it:

There are 3 wires close to the battery location. Are all 3 suppose to tap in at the fuse box here.
(Note the silver color of the wire in the middle):

What order are the plugs suppose to go? Looked in the Helms and it's useless:

What size hose do I need for this:

What nuts are suppose to go on the spark plug cover? My dog chewed the damn bags I had the right nuts in and I can not find them. These are nuts off the Cx motor. She even chewed my ground cable to pieces!! It probably doesn't really matter if they are the right size....


PS <> What's left to do:

1) Intake hose that goes to valve cover (breather hose??)
2) IAB wire (vtec)
3) Spark plug wires
4) Power wires at battery
5) Add coolant / tranny fluid
6) Plug empty hose at charcoal canister
7) Get new coolant reservoir tank
8) Custom exhaust and plug o2 sensor in
9) Clean AEM intake filter
10) Install bumper / headlights / splash guard
11) Fire her up!

the fist pic is of your fuel filter, the second, appears to be a ground cable, just screw it down with a spare nut and bolt, but you may wanna double check that.

The nuts you use to put the valve cover on are listed in the Helms manual. It looks a lot better if you just take the stupid thing off though. Worthless plastic part.

on the firing order I (THINK) that it goes B1 A4 D3 C2

As far as spark plugs go, you have the plug holes numbered wrong but according to your number and letter diagram the order goes:
