    Anyone had zlet tuned to 250+bhp and not had amm probs etc???

    As above, i know the amm,s are very sensitive at the best of times, but they seem to get worse with mods, amongst other parts playing up
    Was just wondering if anyone has had any remaps intercooler panel filter etc for say over a year...without probs?? or dop they always end up unreliable??

    All sensors will become somewhat unrealiable at this stage. You are asking them to perform at their extreme perameters and therefore you have to expect failure from time to time.

    I've had one AFM replacement over the last year on mine.

    I've had a BMC airfilter, FMIC + de-pre-cat, sports cat + exhaust fitted for well over a year now and mines been fine.

    No remap though so it's only running 220bhp

    I've had no AMM probs since fitting a standard panel filter back in the air box. I went through 3 in quick sucession, after changing the filter, it has now been around 10 months with no probs.

    Not wishing to curse myself too much, but I ran my car standard for 12 months, then I added airbox mods, foam filter, DV, precat and exhaust. Then I added a Pace IC, Then I had a Phase 2 EDS remap. Then I fitted the VXR turbo and 2.2 airbox, now I have had a Phase 3 remap.

    Touch wood, in 2 years I have never bust one. I did buy a spare to try, but its still in the box......

    Just the luck of the draw. A mate of mine has blown 5 amm's in the same 2 year period. He is now in the process of stripping the car back to standard, and getting rid cos he is sick of it
