    Who wants a laugh then

    Couldnt wait to get the ECU on so nipped up the road to do it during work :P Bolted it on....plugged it in....started...............yehaa running fine no lights.

    So in the interests of...welll....seeing what it was like let it warm up a bit, pulled away from the house, super definately quicker than the Astra was with the stage 1 Vmax.....junction, turned left, foot to the board....got to 5k rpm and then the shit hit the fan.........it was like the car was tied to the ground the jerkl that came off it....then it died......*queue pant filling moment.* drove to the garage, esp light and managment light on......had a quick check of the fuses then got one of our guys to stick tech 2 on.......result........knackered airflow meter.....'aquired' another one, put it on and away we go all sorted phew thank god for that.......cant wait to get out tonight for a proper drive in it.

    I can thankfully vouch for Dave's staff !!
    They look after my car okay, if only they could work faster !

    Certainly an honest dealer (for a change).

    Worth going in just to get gossip from Dave ... maybe should organise a test drive next time !

    :? :? so you own a dealership, and you're not claiming warranty???

    anyway dave, can you refresh my memory, what mapping have you had done to your ECU mate?
