    Your car has had a catalogue or faults mate from all your posts... it not gonna be easy to diagnose over a forum any more... I think your only real choice is to take it to a specialist....

    Things like this can be something as simple as a small pipe with a split and if you don't know what you are looking for it things like that can be easily missed...

    I have had a look over the logs you posted too and can draw no conclusion from it other than its running pretty lean... did you say your car was mapped as its not fuelled for it...

    I don't know what else to suggest on this...

    No probs... hope you get the issues sorted... most of the stuff you have had probs with are common enough but not always at the same time like you lol....
