    Just cottoned on to what you mean I think. It may be the outside temp sensor, Can you get a pic sent over so I can confirm. If it is I simply moved mine to a bolt under the headlamp iirc

    If it's mounted on to the tube, it's the MAP sensor, you need that. It's common for Egay FMIC kits and the like to not cater for Map sensors and N75 take off's

    Just to clear it up a bit it's on the right side of the engine eg throttle body, washer bottle etc.

    It literally connected to the intercooler itself.
    n75,recirc valve are all attached back on.

    yep, MAP (Boost) sensor.

    only way is to add a MAP Boss to the pipe or add a pipe that has the correct boss. Forge sell a short pipe section that has the correct boss in and can be plumbed in with some silicon hose...

    If I cut out the original boss then stick on the inside of the new pipe then drill 2 small holes and 1 big one for the sensor and attach that from the outside would the boss being inside the pipe disrupt airflow too much?

    Its a ghetto way of doing it but I've only got today to get it runnin before going back to work.

    To be honest, that's kinda what I have done, and it does work.

    But you have to be sure that it's air tight and secure, as if it's not, at best you have it running badly. At worse, something will come off and make it into the cylinder.

    Was having a rummage around my shed and found black silicone sealant so I've sealed the s**t out of it, so should be good to go!
