I believe you will need a different multiplug, one with 13 connections.
Presumably the wiring will also need to be modified for the extra circuits required.
:goodluck:

I do have an engine bay wiring loom from a 3.0S which had a 6 pod dash if that helps. I dont want silly money for it.

Pretty sure if you go back to the 'home' page for the Laserpage you'll find a how to section.
My old mate Tony Holt did a complete write up and wittily entitled it 2-6 Heave.

Edit: Well I can't work out how to do it now!
