Correct ecu's everywhere. He also owns a rather nice black TT Quatro, which he's doing an engine rebuild on, but he's sooooooooo busy with customers work that he's struggling to find time for it.

I'll say it again 100% top bloke.

Hi Gaz,

Yeah I saw the rolling road post, but i'm away all that week.

The meet looked fun. I was forced to go to the Big Weekend fun fair in Cardiff by my 12 year old. Hopefully i'll make the next meet.

Paul.

He has a huge amount of maps both generic & custom. If you tell him what you want he'll suggest a map & then tweek it to your requirements.

The map he's just put in mine is one that he's used on several Anni's. The map in mine is smooth & boost hangs on all the way to the red line.

I didn't want too much of an initial peak as you tend to get surging & hestation issues at partial throttle. Very exciting at full throttle tho.

I may stick a Forge 007p on in the future, but thats a reliability improvement not a peformance one. I had one on my last revo'd mk4, & to be honest I couldn't feel any difference between the 007p & the stock recirc valve. The stock VAG valve can fail after a while due to the effect of the heat from the engine on the plastic, but generally it either works or doesn't.

I do have a K&N panel air filter fitted to the Anni, & that helps things along a bit. Lot of forum members prefer the Green Cotton filters because the K&N's have a reputation for oiling up the MAF, but I ran my last mk4 for 2 years with the K&N without any problems.

Hi Neil,

Yeah the remap seems to be good when the ecu isn't in limp mode.

It's nothing to do with Chris's remap though.

I've been getting a fault code (17705 pressure drop between turbo & throttle body), which is proving to be a bit of a problem to solve. Seems that I've got a boost leak somewhere, but so far I haven't been able to find it. [8o|]

Loads of posts on the forum about this 17705 prob, but no definitive answer to it.

So at this point I'm not sure if I'm really getting the full benefit of the remap.

Despite all this the car is quick though. I stuck my spare n75j valve on & the car kicks like a mule.[<:eek:)]

Yeah Neil, I would hold fire for the moment. Been trying to get in touch with Chris, but to no avail. He could be away on holiday or something.

So i'm sticking my car into a Revo dealer in Newport tomorrow to see what he makes of it. Will let you know the outcome.

Paul.

Well looks like it was the VAG DV that was the cause of the problem. When we removed it, the pipe that goes into the intake was mishaped & warped which can't of been helping things.

We put a new Forge 007p DV on 2 days ago & all seems sorted now. No limp mode since, but I haven't been able to check to see if it's thrown a code.

I've bought a VAG com cable which hopefully will show up tomorrow, & I'll see what the situation is.

The N75J valve seems to work really well with the remap. The car was wheel spinning when going full throttle in 3rd last night. In the dry[au][;)]

Paul.
