  1. He's in a rush to join the chain bar congestion... will this road work ever end?? :(
  2. I T'd off of the waste gate actuator line. What power the engine is giving is at about 2500RPM same as before I fitted the boost gauge.
  3. October Compilation - took a while then I had to redo due to copyright hit on some crap song on the radio
  4. not a compilation but... yeah! I luv Bradford... replaced link with fixed audio version
  5. I removed the irritating whine from the B40/A118C mic by equalising ~5900Hz as low as possible.
  6. still not kicking in early enough I think... anywayz here's what the boost is up to...
  7. yeah! fixed it!! I was nosing around the engine compartment (routing the pipe for my boost gauge, dianostics only, gonna be behind the dash most of it's life) and near this doodat I found an electrical connector... anyways plugged... connected my new OBD2 wifi adapter and cleared the error... fixed! well so far no light....
  8. ...and they switched the lines around and reset the error...and it came back,,, So I cleaned the EGR myself (It's the vacuum actuator type) and got them to reset the error... fingers crossed... ...and nope light is back on... FFS
  9. ...and the light is back... just gonna get them to clean the egr for me... weather is too crap now for DIY mechanics without a garage...
  10. I think I might of found the problem... seems the mechanic forgot to re-attach 2 air/vacuum lines... they should go to this thing between the battery and the back of the near side headlight.... got the garage to work out which one goes to where and reset the fault through obd.
  11. :( keeps throwing an EGR fault saying the reading is out of range, the garage who fitted the clutch have reset a couple of times they seemed to think it was getting triggered by multiple stalls while the mechanic & I were getting used to the really low biting point, but I haven't stalled it once since the last reset. Drove around for 10mins light stayed off, parked at my folks house, had a coffee and a chat... and the light was on when I restarted the car :( Banged/broke a sensor or knocked the carbon deposits loose fitting the clutch is my wild and uneducated guess... opinions/guesses?
  12. I used to work near those lights, in SS Audio, Sony Centre & Gerrards. After market head unit installed... my to-do list is shrinking quickly...
  13. I re-seated the vacuum line on the wastegate seems to be back to normal now...
  14. I cleaned the MAF with electrical contact cleaner as I couldn't find MAF cleaner anywhere... seems a little bit better...
