    Nah, i rang them a while back to query my chip and the response i got from them was very poor, i would strongly urge anyone who has got a Superchips map to check their fueling :ermm:

    True! Wayne's also a Revo dealer and could of quite easily put stage 2 on, glad he checked everything over and is starting from scratch, plenty more yet to come, 6/7 more precious psi's left to play with:yes:

    Thanks Mush, didn't know your were at Elsecar lol I reckon once the fuel pump and 4bar fpr are in i'll be good to go, i'll probably end up maxing out the injectors lol

    Before Wayne started the map he gave the car a hard run on the dyno to see what kinda egts i was getting, the exhaust manifold was glowing like the sun:racer: but after a few goes the hottest we could get the egt's was 880oC. Should it get hotter??

    IIRC k04s can push right up to 900-950 C when pushed hard to get to their 260bhp levels. Maybe yours arent that bad as yours allows better flow, or then it may simply be because your not pushing big power levels yet. Either way 880 C is relatively safe atm

    if its not running much more than a bar of boost the egt's would'nt (should'nt) get to the 920 egt protection trip.. but that is also dependant on the loads applied by the dyno. hold it loaded and it will. what gear does wayne test in.. (I think its 3rd from what I read others use... which is not a lot of load on acceleration runs, so not as hot as it would be in say 6th wot from 3krpm for example)

    std fueling on 0.95 under wot will cause higher egt's and in turn higher cf's than more appropriate fueling.

    sounds like you will finally get a map which suits the car.

    Yes Bill, finally getting a map that suits the car:)

    All the mapping was done in 6th gear and from what i know he tried his best on the standard map to get egt as hot as possible, he was trying to get it to trip to dump fuel but highest temp we saw was 880oC. Will be going back as soon as the new pump is in. Got a feeling that i'm going to end up maxing out the injectors

    New fuel pump fine but no point in a 4bar FPR tbh... have you checked the current FPR to see if its blocked or owt? whats block 032 saying?

    Yeah i checked the FPR a few days ago and it was clean, no blockages or anything, i haven't logged 032 myself but Wayne was keeping it around 12.5 but at 16psi on boost at around 5k it started losing fuel pressure. Got the fuel pump today, ECP gave me the wrong one first, think it was for an A3, took mine off and the bloody thing was totally different, rang them up, gave them the part number and luckily they had one in stock.

    Does this look right??

    Hi Sandip,

    That's the right pump dude, just replaced mine and it made a big difference.

    Quick update, the new pump was put in on Saturday, seems a lot quieter than the old one!

    Also removed the oil breather pipe going into the t.i.p and it's now vented to atmosphere, i've routed it underneath the car, so far i've had no nasty oily odours coming into the cabin. Took it out for a blast after doing this yesterday and the red chargepipe to turbo popped off once again, it's been a pain since the day i bought it (Forge hose), so the oem hose went back on, will see how long this lasts......

    Will try and post some pictures of the breather later

    I'd like to see where you've vented the breather mate. I looked into venting mine under the car cut didn't like the thought of the hose and breather going down close to the drive shaft.

    I looked at putting it down near the driveshaft but put me off for the same reason, mine's actually near the driverside intercooler, will post some photo's up later Westle

    what clips are being used to hold it?
    they can sometimes be too long I have seen, and unless pushed over the turbo's outlet will sit too tall, which when the chaerge pipe is clamped down, will kink the hose on the bend, reducing its internal surface area=bad

    It's buggered beyond repair Bill, i've tried a few different type of clips but they kept slipping off, it's the turbo end what was giving me the bother because a jubilee had dug into the hose in a funny way and everytime i tried to tighten it up it kept dropping into the groove

    cheers for the pics mate.

    Do you not have a catch can then, you just vent the normal system to atmosphere instead of back to the TIP?

    I've put the breather hose back into the t.i.p today, defo need a catch can when it comes to oil breathers.....

    Whilst doing this i noticed that my vac line was leaking on the FPR so i've changed that so it has it own line that is now connected to the nipple underneath the inlet manifold, once the line was sorted a tightened up some of the pcv connections under the mani and gave things a quick wipe....

    Now this is all i have done but my car has now got more of a chatter, my car has never had chatter in the 5yrs of me owning it :think:

    Thanks bud, i gave it some stick lastnight and no hoses popped off and the chatter issue is the dv i think, at full boost (16psi) it does the normal woosh but flutters on part throttle, i'll try another dv to see what difference if makes :)

    I really want to see what my a/f ratio is now at the top end

    My car has an odd bog down of power as I accelerate after changing into second from time to time.
