    Can't read file?!

    im sure if you get a revo map, they lock your ecu so only revo can remap it in the future, you have to get it unlocked by revo if im right

    Scraping noise

    Just a quick question to see if anyone has any ideas as to what could be wrong with my car. When im driving and go over a hump in the road, and the suspension compresses, the front end makes a kindof whooshing noise, sounds like gas escaping from somewhere and a scraping noise from the back end...

    Revometer bouncing

    When it happens try to take the oil filler cap off, if there is a bit of a vacumme holding the cap on, the pcv is on the way out

    Revometer bouncing

    Pcv valve could be on the way out, causes strange idling

    Careless/dangerous driving

    I did, but they couldnt give me any info, they said that it must have been the policeman himself that sent it out, not the fixed penalty unit, and i didnt take a note of his name from the letter, basically just a waiting game now to hear back with what they are accusing me of.

    Careless/dangerous driving

    I wish I could explain a bit more, currently, that is all the information i have. Got a letter through with a form to identify the driver, the only information it had on the letter was the road and a half an hour time scale, no mention of what i actually did. Neither me nor my girlfriend can...

    Careless/dangerous driving

    Just got a letter through the post yesterday saying that they are going to prosecute me with careless/dangerous driving. I was never stopped by the police, just received this letter, telling me where and when it was, but not what i actually did. I had my girlfriend in the car so wouldn't have...

    Ooohhh noooo big problem

    did you have the oem diverter valve, because i have a forge one, not sure if that will have gone, dont want to change just the pcv if the dv is ****ed, because it will happen again, but dont fancy shelling out the money for the forge dv if its not needed.

    Ooohhh noooo big problem

    Well from what im reading from you guys, and else where, it looks like it could be a combination of the forge dump valve failing, and the pcv needing changed, what do you think? Just a stupid question here, the diverter valve is used in conjunction with the oem dump valve, so having a forge DV...

    Ooohhh noooo big problem

    Thanks for all the help, and thanks for the picture, it seems to me like the dump valve is constantly dumping the air , or something is letting all the boost out, maybe the diaphragm on the dump valve is gone? But can't imagine that it would affect the idle, as mentioned before. It isn't...

    Ooohhh noooo big problem

    I had a quick look, couldn't see any loose pipes, I'm going to sound like a moron, but where are the boost pipes, obviously connected to the turbo and the intake, but I'm not even sure where the turbo is haha, front right of the block?

    Ooohhh noooo big problem

    The intake pipe on the cai kit is made from metal, and is absolutely scortching hot, like almost can't touch it, do you think that could be part of the problem, the air is too warm so a lot less dense, messing with the maf? Because it is 24 degrees here, hottest day of the year probably
