    OK thanks, I'll have a look.

    I want to see if it has a 'piggy-back' chip installed, as my mechanic thinks it may have, as I keep getting 'waste gate valve range solenoid' faults.

    Tina.

    Can anyone give me a more accurate idea of where the engine ECU is please?

    The fusebox is to the right of the battery and the epansion tank is behind - I don't see an ECU anywhere there.

    Thanks.

    Tina.

    Going by the alloy she's after it's a MK5 which means the ecu is on the back of the engine on the gearbox side. There will be 2 large connectors going onto it

    Your ecu will be fastened to the rear of the engine bay/against the bulk head i believe, two plugs going into it... close to the gearbox

    Look at the pic above. Look at the word ECOTEC. Then look behind it on the rear of the engine. Its bolted to the side of the inlet manifold.
