Peter EmpsonGood luck for Friday. I've a similar concern, I've been told I need to run it in for 500 miles before getting it mapped which is going to be hellish, as it's not a mile muncher and the existing mapping isn't that great (because I did it) so it's all a bit sketchy. Not sure who I'm going to use to do it properly, probably Wayne as he has more experience on my type of setup than anyone I guess, but the logistics make it a bit tricky, so am looking a little closer to home.
Dan944tThanks mate How far are you from Wayne (chipwizards)?
944TurboGood to hear all these cars returning to the road! I have been tempted to mot my coupe - It uses a lot of oil but given that I only did 300 miles last year in the cab its not going to be that expensive on oil consumption.......Tony
