Re: Autoexe ram air intake carbon

Does it have the autoexe badge anywhere? It's different to other autoexe intakes I've seen and doesn't have the autoexe pipe?

The injectors aren't bulletproof and can have issues.

What's becoming more common is corrosion on the electrical connections as the loom goes onto the injectors.

All recommendations gratefully received, pulling whats left of my hair out at the minute trying to solve this! Injectors are another thing on my check list even though I keep reading they're bulletproof :|

Re: Dave's black S1 231

Update. Fuel pump not seated correctly was my fuel leak! Thanks mazda [-X but pressure tested, clips replaced with jubilee clips, and tank filled to the brim, drove it for an hour and not a leak in sight! 1 job ticked off - only another 5 million to go #-o Special thanks to dean for being a legend :)

Re: Dave's black S1 231

Well, removed exhaust, propshaft and that big beam (forgotten the name dean said #-o ) and dropped fuel tank to check everything and why there was a leak, all supervised by dean of course :lol: From the pic, the pump is the culprit that has been leaking and when dean inspected it wasn't fully down. ...

Re: GReddy turbo conversion

That's interesting, so it needs to go to specialist so really would need assembling there as well so they could map it too? Or is remote mapping an option for turbo applications too? I wonder what price is in comparison to buying an adaptronic? Lol

GReddy turbo conversion

Hypothetically, I've seen that you dont need to buy a standalone ecu for turbo builds now, and that versatune can be used, does this need to be done by a specialist or can a novice do this? Does anyone know if theres a base map as well? Thanks
