    feck mani GB's - lol - Mani @ this stage is a one off... until I recover from the trauma of making this one, which based on time alone to make would be >£1000 item, clearly not something salable. I will chalk it up to being a challenging engineering exercise. :p

    everything about working with head in situ on S3's is a complete arse. Cyl head off is the far more efficient way of doing this.
    My forearms are also scraped and bruised to ****.. Not enjoy the process I have to say.
    just driveshaft to bolt back on and turbo support bolt, connect lambda electrically.. bung some fluids back in it and turn the key.. later today. Hoping to hell I can access the turbo support bolt now I put the sodding DP back on.. with its inaccessible 1 nut/stud which caused me a lot of pain yesterday. got home just before 6 last night, flopped in the chair, watched recorded F1 and promptly fell asleep. Knackered!

    Thanks Bill. I thought Welly's car only had 1 lambda being an onlder engine unlike the BAM which have a pre and post cat sensor?

    Yep, thats correct. Bill knows this all to well as without wideband lambda, it's a ***** to map.

    So you've just bunged the hole for where the post cat sensor should go?

    How easy is it to map a car that has a decat and a post cat sensor, because the sensor wont like it?

    AFAIK, the second lambda has no real control on fuelling - it is there so the ECU knows how efficient the CAT is.

    Bill will be able to answer this much better than me...

    IT's strange because on my previous map the post cat sensor was telling VCDS that the cats were damaged and I can only assume this was where the poor map was underfueling! The Revo has sorted any abnormalities.

    Yeah, in all fairness, that map that was on there wasn't the best. In fact it was very lean IIRC.

    It was as lean as a baked bean!

    Dane sorry for another hi-jack.

    I'll get it back on track by asking where you're mounting your WMI system?
