    i wont make it,lol dies after every few miles, have 2 switch off ignition and switch back on again, think it may be easier to flash a stage 3 map on it, but will have 2 pay full red dot price wen go back as it will be wiped

    i have no idea why they go, but it's not a good sign if there's someone advertising a guide to DIY mapping complaining they've got a fried ECU

    hope you get it sorted soon Andy
