    Sorry let me try that again. Linking to Facebook definitely doesn’t work.

    Funny you say these things!
    I do what I can do make extra monies - mainly rescueing or upgrading clusters.

    I have gotten a certificate of roadworthiness on the daily so now it is ready to be moved on.

    And thanks for the kind words. I’m humbled.

    As for the coilpacks .... well they were just an old set of coils so once I changed them... well I’ll let the video do the talking.

    Hahahaha that sounds like a day you’ll never forget!!!

    I have found my car to be super reliable. I did make a 2000km round trip interstate in it before taking it to the tuners. So I know that mechanically it s sound. Lucky me :)

    you make your own luck - and essentially you have made your own S3 Ian.

    good looking video - has the car been much better since being professionally mapped? even though they were not satisfied they could take it to its limit? you must at least feel confident the fuel, air and spark are all good and of course the stopping part :)

    Logging shows there’s not much timing pull and looks like fuelling is deinfitley keeping up with this tune.

    I might run the 98 out and revisit the e85 tune...

    But for now. It’s a lot of fun and am happy with the outcome. I know I don’t have any numbers or graphs but this was due to the circumstances and have been told by my tuner that we’d tee it up in the new year :racer:

    It would be interesting to see what android torque estimates and MAF readings versus the Dyno covered to crank etc. Especially when 4 AWD Dyno runs. What are your MAF g/s like 320?

    or are you MAF-less? I cant remember if there is a limit on an S3 MAF of 300 or something?

    The tune is mafless so the Maf reads flat in all my logs. The Maf housing is an 85mm one too...

    There is a reading from the throttle body but that is a hemi throttle body so there would need to be some form of conversion to be done.

    Tidied up some wiring that was needed to get a clean signal from the ecu for logging and made them swappable. Was looking into switches but CBF

    So connecting both ends of yellow to the to the grey wire = bypass

    Also installed auto headlights while I had the lower plastic cover off.

    What did you use for the auto lights @IanPG ?

    Is it the R-style kit?

    I used a switch when I had my liquid gauge... found I started getting comms issues port flashing and with VCDS...

    When I removed liquid I removed the switch and soldered it all up again and didn't have an issue again...

    K-Line comms are a iffy at the best of times :/

    Just a bit of kit off eBay from a golf/Bora/etc. it plugs into the OEM headlight control’s hardness plug and then you gotta swap the knobs around.
    Works a treat! Took it out for a test drive last night and can confirm the sensor works well and switches off wen driving into, say, a servo.

    I’ll try make a DIY post

    What kind of switch did you put? I couldn’t figure it out. I was thinking there would need to be two switches to each side of the connection to be able to completely bypass the rest of the canbus.

    P.s. Merry Christmas all!!!

    Was a changeover switch to route the k-line between the liquid gauge and the obd port... started getting flash errors and was a little tired of having to take the ECU out all the time to bench flash

    Something like this? I was picturing I would need at least 8 terminals to wire to but had no idea what kind of switch or board to get...

    out of interest is your ECU Immo Off? as Me7-Logger doesn't work properly I was advised by Nyet on nefmoto its because the K-line is interfered with by the cluster - could this be why your switch caused an issue?

    Dammit. I need an example hahahaha

    IMMO is still on. I dont have a switch. At the sampling rate the tuners wanted they need a direct line from the ecu to obd. I’m able to get it working at 20 a second via Oem wiring but they wanted 50 samples a second which... when coupled with colormfa .... made for a dirty line.

    I was actually talking to Tuffty causing interference with the k-line.

    Incidentally, do you still have your direct k-line to odb? That was the advice I was given to get me7logger working.

    Time off = more modding.

    - returning the helper springs back onto the struts and topping them off with adjustable camber tops.

    - this is how they should be layered

    - then you are left behind with these as redundant

    - another mod - extinguisher bracket

    I’ve ordered the R-style kit that also gives you the coming/leaving home function and still allows you to retain the original switch. Fingers crossed it’s as good a bit of kit as it looks :grin:

    Like that extinguisher bracket Ian.

    EVERY highly modified car should carry an extinguisher in my opinion.

    My old a3 went up in flames when Lewis owned it due to a loose clip on the fuel rail. Extinguisher could have saved it.

    Yep I been waiting for a bracket like this to show up. That extinguisher has been sat on my bedroom floor for hrmmm.. 4 months? About time I get it in the car as the weather is warming up!

    Definitely gives me peace of mind. Except.... it doesn’t have a hose lol

    In that case you'd better scan it for fault codes and do a smoke test :blink: I do with all my extinguishers!

    That’s the one.

    I have the sensor hidden in the top right han corner of the windscreen.
    Routed it up through the fuse box, undid the rubber moulding, ran the wire up the A pillar and have the sensor sticking out from the inner side of the pillar trim.

    I couldn’t figure it out with this unit.

    Thing is you need to be able to use the knob to change the settings. The new unit has more “stops” in the knob. I couldn’t find a way to remove the knob itself from the new unit to replace it with the Oem one.

    I know with the Oem one you can remove just the knob quite easily. But there wasn’t a way with the replacement one unless you broke the cylindrical housing.

    Welll that’s what I saw anyway...

    That one won’t work. Mine had a separate box which the rectangle plug plugs in to first then the switch unit plugs into that...
