    Exclamation My remap HELP

    Got a remap from http://www.autogym.co.uk/ last saturday.

    It certainly made a difference but i have some concerns.

    1. Today the car alarm has gone off six times?... Is it a coincidence or do you think the map has something to do with it. I have left it unlocked now but for a few seconds I still heard a faint power sounder???

    I have had no warnings form the power sounder that it might be dieing?

    2. The Boost had been uped considerably - not got a boost gauge yet so cant tell how much - The boost is a bit spikey when cruising and excelerating in 4th - Could this be the Boost solenoid? It was fine before the map?

    Help guys?...

    Oh also I might be being paranoid but I haven't heard my radiator fan come on since the map. The cars running no warmer but I was sat in traffic in the sun yesterday and the needle went to the half way point - I'm sure the fan used to kick in just before then?..

    get a hold of a boost gauge soon and see what its boosting at

    a general rule of thumb is to sit at 40 in 4th gear then floor it and see what it peaks at and what it settles at

    my remaped CS2 peaks at about 18psi and drops off to 13psi and holds that

    Sounds like the powersounder is on it's way out and is probably a coinsidence.

    Mapping a car will highlight any sensor issues. You are asking them to work at the limits of their tolerances so it's likely that you'll have a sensor failure at some point. The bcs's are pretty cheap so it's worth getting one or two to check/replace - I beleive the vxr one's are uprated or an improved design.

    Boost Control Solenoid

    You have two, one mounted on the turbo and one on the back of the block (trace the vacuum pipe coming from the OE dump valve all the way)

    Ah right okay.

    So the VXR ones should just fit the same?... Has anyone else fitted them?
