Appreciate your input, indeed there are markings showing the position of the relays, but they do not indicate the type. What was making me consider the positioning of the relays and type was looking at various 3 and 3.3 litres at a concourse, where it seemed some had a red relay in the rear, and those that had red relays in the front had them in different locations in the fuse box, I was trying to figure out if some circuits( other than fuel) needed a red relay and if I had a red instead of a black and if the black relay i have in the rear of my car should in fact be a red one- someone mentioned that the red fuel relay in fact controlled the black relay.

In the rear I was told the black relay was variously- a safety or roll over relay, rear window demister relay, I understand that the small silver rectangular relay with 4 pin connector ( marked I in atatched photo) is in fact the so called safety over boost relay that cuts the fuel pump if things get to hectic on the boost, and also switches the CDI and fuel pumps off sequentially when shutting down.
