    so... tried connecting to the ecu with my dyno box tuning lead.. and it only worked ok!! doh!

    serial/flash lead remains non working, but oddly it let me flash the ecu with new firmware (after several goes) a few days ago. It also talks to S40 ok.. (or did do last one I tried connecting to)
    Weird.. swapped usb>serial adaptors between leads and its deffo not liking the flash cable no matter what.
    still i can unlock now.. woohoo.

    not had time yet... wont be long tho..
    got to run it in on dyno first on actuator pressure - 1bar

    then see what she does when I adjust the mapping..
    I have to wire in the vvt solenoid yet, which wont take long.

    Bill, a bit unrelated sorry, but how much do you reckon the Biza weighs in race trim, with a bit of fuel and no driver?

    Turbo must have given the air filter a boner by the looks of it :D

    Fair play for getting this beast back together!

    its run up briefly on the dyno saturday.. found a couple of gremlins.. fans not working and it has an airlock briefly so spat some coolant out.. Once fixed it ripped and and down the dogbox nicely on lowish revs and throttle... only 5krpms explored on light loads..

    Later this week I will get it loaded up fully to run in.

    It makes me smile :D
    raucous...

    Looking forward to seeing this in action, when do you think that'll be Bill?

    Saw you today as it happens, heading towards Stroud in a Caged Golf, you looked a bit chilly in there!
