    finally decided to book it into courtenays

    booked in on thursday morning for 3 inch turbo back and to get diagnostic r/r run and a remap if needed. hopefully this will cure my running faults i have been having for a while.

    dont know what the car is running power wise just now as i havent had it on the rollers since i bought it. only mods on it just now are the tx front mount intercooler and 1.9 diesel airbox and a forge recirc valve on the turbo.

    thats the mods I have done, previous owner had chopped the main cat out and welded a pipe in its place and i suspect it has been remapped poorly as it drives weird.

    Going to get the full system fitted with sport cat so hopefully I wont be resetting the eml every 2 days for the catalyst efficiency fault any more and they are going to check it on the rollers for me to se if it does have a bad map on it. if it needs it then it will be getting a remap from them.

    I really dont care about figures I just want it driving nice and to have some torque and boost when it should!

    If the previous owner chopped the cat out, what was done with the lambda sensor? This is what could be causing the engine to run in a poor fashion.

    drive down is tomorrow, I'm now considering getting them to fit a turbo to it so they can get a bit more from it when they map it. thinking if I'm going all the way down there then I might as well make it worthwhile. hmmmm decisions.
