    Mapping day tomorrow ( 5th Sept ) I am crapping it right now hoping everything will be ok

    I know the engine is strong and just a little worried about the clutch

    Anyway lets hope i can break the 500 bhp mark?

    Not to planned really.

    Spent most of the day trying to make it idle due to the lightened flywheel.

    Managed to do a few runs, first run i had plumbed in the external gate wrong and it was running massive boost and paul had to back off at 4500 as it was pulling itself out of the rollers !!!, we redid the wastegate to only ran it at 10psi and it made just under 300 at 4000 rpms

    Paul really doesn't like the narrow band lambda set up and i'm sure badger will also say its a pain also and he recommend i fit the 225 TT/S3 wide band ECU so we can keep a eye on my readings and do a MAF delete that way also.

    With these problem done he said it would be a monster of a car with loads of torque !!

    Was a wideband lambda not hooked up to the car or have you only got the one boss for the lambda? What flywheel are you running?

    The early S3 run narrow band, I don't understand mapping so maybe badger will explain it all if he reads this

    A very light TTV flywheel

    Yeah I was just wondering if you had another boss to put a wideband sensor in to map it. Do you know if he had a head up reading of the air fuel ratio/lambda whilst trying to map it? Either way you will want some form of wideband lambda reading as the narrow band reading is useless for tuning an engine as it doesn't give you a precise reading of the AFR when it is much richer and leaner.

    He ran a lambda in the exhaust

    I think its more likely to do with my spec of my engine running a narrow band thats the problem

    non wideband ECU's are trickier to tune than wideband ECU's fo sho... ME7.5 is a nicer ECU... still need to know what you are doing of course :)

    Bad luck mate... the path to power is never a straight one, I am still wearing that particular t-shirt... :)

    Interesting that you may be having a MAF delete... not sure how thats going to affect the running of the car as a daily driver but can see the advantages on a track/race car..

    The Mk2 Golf Bill built recently is running a DTA ecu MAF less at around 450 odd bhp and a Leon race car with just over 500bhp on a Bosch ecu running a MAF...

    Not sure I would want to go MAF less but as you have pushed the envelope a little with this build why the hell not :)

    It was just something Paul said about the Maf delete

    Not sure how it's done but he did say I had a thick ecu

    Gutted mate, shame you never got what you wanted. Does it run ok now though?

    Good advice from Paul. Same reason ive upgraded to a wideband ME7.5 ECU, as i thought tuning would be problematic. Plus its a bit safer in running big turbo setups for the accurate fuelling and ability to manage EGTs.0

    Got any graph pics? When does the boost come in? SO many questions!! Lol

    At least hes looking after the cars welfare,,,
    Yeah ive heard of tuners putting a stand alone wideband in for mapping... is a ME7.5 going to be a ballache for immobiliser issues?

    It can be disabled (immo defeat as it is known as) or resync'd to the cluster... its how replacement ECU's can be fitted... not sure on the process though..
