    test run results...





    didnt give it wally or anything just a blastt o see whats hapnin..

    used to overboost to 11.5PSi then hold about 10 dropping to 9ish.

    now

    overboost to around the same but holding at 11ish......then dropping to around 10.5...


    power seems to go good.. obviously i will find out eventually one way or another as to how it actually is running. BUT for now it will do.

    in fault code hell tho! loads o faults but im sure they willl clear once a few things are sorted

    replaced sensor and fix aircon fault.

    car is running rich and very lumpy on idle.. feels like its wanting to hold back slightly.
