hope everything is alright with your folks .have been following your thread since it started and have enjoyed it .with regards to learning about tuning , the HP tuners forum has all kinds of threads on setting up the different charts that run a modern computer controlled engine .it is a lot of free info , no matter what system you are using .

Hints:

"Earth" = Ground (-)
"Positive (+)" = Positive (+) supply voltage ... careful, may be +12 volts or +5 volts

Really, it's not. The schematic is showing where the different wire colors are going. For example, on the first page:

Injector 1 (N30) pin 1 white wire (ws) ties to E25 (Connection (87a, right inlet valve), in Motronic wiring harness)
Pin 2 black/pink (sw/ro) ties to J220 (Motec control unit) pin E1.

yes it shows where they go on the ecu but what i need to know is on the throttle postion sensor what one is ground and wht 1 is signal and what 1 is the 5v referance as far as i can see it only shows what wires go to the tps but not what each one is but this could be i just dont understand it

I see your dilemma...

It looks like the wiper is pin 3. The rest would be a best guess for me...
blk/wht appears to be the positive line.
blk/brn appears to be the ground side.

But, that's just a logical guess...

Any chance to power it and see which is the reference signal?

It is a track style wiring diagram. Do a google search on how to read track style wiring diagrams and you'll find it much easier. In short, all wiring colors are the same for all models in the same genre for their specific circuits. All grounds are brown and not black. You are missing a lot of needed info. When I wired up my VR6 and TDI Fieros, I had to get the power and ground charts, powertrain management, auto trans, and starting and charging to find all the needed wiring. Audi/VW normally doesn't have a pcm pinout chart.
Once you become familiar with this style, you will find them very easy to read and understand.

The O2 needs to be close to the engine so it gets hot enough and needs to have enough exhaust flow past it to read accurately. You'd be better off putting it in the manifold.

No. It needs to be as close to the exhaust manifolds as possible.

my other thought is to use this crossover pipe this would make it so i only need 1 O2 and it will be close enough to the manifolds pluse i will be using a heated O2
