No, what you see is correct. There are only 5 wires. Slot 5 is empty you just can't see it. The thing that I'm boggled by is that 8 pin female connects to 8 pin male (new 5 wire 02). Pins 3 and 4 of 8 pin female in the instructions are used so they should connect to 8 pin male in the same place otherwise what's the point of those wires? Specifically,

"pin 4 needs to be wired to 6-pin male, pin 3. This line goes via C129, pin 3, and ultimately reaches D3. The old O2 sensor did not use D3. But we're taking advantage of the fact that C129 already is connected to D3, even in a CA VX."

I'm confused because on 8 pin male (new 5 wire 02) pin 4 there is no connection to the ECU.

Maybe I'm overthinking the whole thing...
