    Hi everyone... been putting this off until things were sorted and Bill was ok with it but later on Saturday night the office at the unit was broken in to. The workshop itself was untouched and the alarm was in full swing when Bill got the call out.... Not my place to go into any more detail but more info will be posted in Bill's forum on SCN (Badger5 Workshop Burgled this evening - Page 3 - SEAT Cupra.net - SEAT Forum)

    Needless to say its put a black cloud over what was a fantastic day.

    CCTV would have done nothing to prevent the break in.
    5mins in-out, I was there within mins of alarm and missed the fekkers - Alarm was going full chat, sirens, strobes yada
    I wish I had come face to face with them....... they would be fekking dead

    Shocked how what I thought was a secure door was defeated so easily. They ransacked the office grabbed my laptops ( all of them!) and ran out dropping stuff on the floor outsidein their rush.

    I would be interested in what cctv you have got.. I am all ears on anything to try and prevent these utter w4nkers from stealing my stuff. I hope they die a horrible death very soon now.

    If people get to hear of "stuff" for sale:
    3 x laptops, older HP Pavillion, grey/blue case with big oval badger5 sticker on its lid, a Samsung netbook in black, and a large Advent laptop with Blueray drive again in black.

    If you do hear of anything please contact the police or myself with any leads

    Prawn, thats interesting results what u got with your Maf and dyno runs. Ive always used it as a rough estimate to see how my cars running after ive changed something to see if ive gained or lost in performance. When i calculate the torque and power from vag com it comes up with slightly less than what the maf value says. Either way im going to get my car dynoed soon.

    Sorry to hear about the break in Bill, hopefully some info crops up soon about who did.

    Ye thats what I do and it always seems to come out a little less than the maf values for some reason.

    I have taken a look at the logs Bill made as per your request.

    Whilst I can see why Bill might think more timing could or should be added, I would personally be looking at why boost has dropped first before considering map tweaks to dial in more advance.

    When you last popped over, boost was looking a bit more healthy than it is now. (4th gear pull)



    You did have a few issues with the vehicle to resolve as I recall (& perhaps a new one looking at these latest logs).

    Anyway it certainly would not have been advisable to dial in more advance on your last visit, as per the log below.



    Physical advance was certainly not the best, but to add further advance at that time would have been crazy.

    We generally aim for around 2-3CF peak at full load/high rpm when tweaking advance for 99RON fuel, this way there is still some reasonable margin for the ECU to retard timing & control knock should you inadvertently fill with lower grade fuel, or get old or contaminated fuel etc

    Nowadays we also set other safety factors in place so should IAT/CF's get really bad, the ECU will cut boost completley rather than only gradually reduce it as a control stratergy.

    Anyway you are of course more than welcome to make an appointment for diagnostics, & tweaks to the advance maps if its really needed once we have reviewed boost.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Morgan

    Bill is this right? when i get my maf fixed im gonna go out and log block 120 then times that by 1.31 and that gives you an estimated bhp figure?

    Sorry to hear about your workshop aswell, why couldnt it have been GMS if you know what i mean.

    block 120 will be in nm units, so convert to lbft first by dividing the nm by 1.35582 (or multiply by 0.737561) and then dial that resulting number into this equation on a spreadsheet to calculate bhp.

    bhp = (torque in lbft x engine rpm) / 5252

    Ross-Tech (vagcom people) have a handy spreadsheet>> http://www.ross-tech.net/vag-com/exa...0_Tutorial.xls

    Sorry to hear about the break-in Bill, puts a downer on an otherwise great day. I hope the scumbags get what they deserve, *******s.
    I'll keep my eyes (and ears) open, for what it's worth.

    Pure scum!!! As said, thieves are utter ****ers anyway, but to steal what a man uses to put food on his table is even worse!!!! Hope alls found, and retrieved.. If not, hope you get an address ;-)....

    Bill, out of interest, my car wasn't logged liked everyone else... I'd like to see what's what, as it's pulling good power for a ko4... Any chance I could pop down (after my mapped has a play with the fueling 1st), and have another logged run???

    Pete....

    Bill,

    Sorry to hear about that mate

    Have you been broken into before and have they got in the same way?. I'm sure I saw something on Seatcupra.net, same point of access?.

    Sadly if you have been done before the little ****s will wait till you've replaced what they've taken before and then come back. The suggestion of having metal shutters over all doors is a good shout to be fair, however they may just try and get in elsewhere. There's a unit where I work that keeps getting done, they've gone to coming in through the roof now

    I'd also suggest some sort of strong box...bolted down that you can pop your laptops etc in at night. Buy a tough one or build it tough so it'll take a while for them to get into it.

    Again, sorry to hear about it....some people need their hands cutting off

    my work has lots of valuble stock and is fairly well protected, steel shutters, coded magnetic doors, roof has a magnetic cage on it so if touched or broken the alarm is triggered. yet a couple of years ago they got through two walls with sledge hammers, they had about 6 computers in front of them and god knows what else and they took nothing, which is great but, wtf, must have been scared by something. anyway. our places security consists of:

    cctv: a must
    coded magnetic doors, two sets, all round
    steel shutters over all doors bar one which is steel.
    roof has a cage on the inside connected to alarm.
    about 8 foot fence.
    we also have computer and laptop locks, as can be found in computer shops that lock them to a display.

    a good option for you could be a safe. expensive, but better than forking out to replace hardware, and lose invaluable software and research and development.

    Sorry to hear about the news Bill.

    On site we use small steel containers like these Van security and Site security boxes UK, can be bolted to floor, just another idea.
