2013 HID headlights using custom harness to connect to 2011-2012 nonHID

I want to thank LEXiiON, ebalderas and 5.0verkill.
Below are my findings in my quest to build a harness. So I hope this helps others make there own harnesses. all parts were purchased on eBay. except for wrap solder shrink wrap harbor freight.
Pin 1 Low beam
Pin 3 DRL Power Full
Pin 5 DRL Power Dim
Pin 8 Ballast Ground
Pin 10 Power Ballast
Pin 12 Power High beam
Pin 14 Ground
Using Motocraft WPT 1357
I wired pins 1 and 10 together for power and pin 8 for ground to connect to the morimoto harness ballast plug using a male 9006 pigtail
I wired pins 3 power DRl 9006 pigtail to connect to Diodedynamics DS1 switchback driver
Did not use pin 5 drl power dim
Connected pin 12 power high beam and pin 14 ground to male 9006 pigtail. To connect to morimoto harness high beam plug.

For the turn signal I used a 7444 pigtail and connected to a 9006 male pigtail to connect to Diodedynamics DS1 switchback driver(Output used ground and yellow for turn signal and the white alone since headlight uses common ground for DRL). I first connected 7444 to 3157 to figure which two wires made turn signal flash since you do not use the other wire(used yellow and ground input).
I connected the 3157 directly to the switchback since this will connect to old turn signal bulb. Remember if it does not work rotate plug.
I ran a power wire from fuse 39 using a fuseblade to power switchbacks which in turn powered DRL
