Your obsessiveness chasing down these things and making them right is like a disease.
David, you're my kind of people!
Keep up the good work!
Thanks Dave, the crap that I find never ceases to amaze me .The lack of knowledge ICS shows , as a supposedly high performance shop , is just something else.Using the products in the incorrect manor ( HKS BOV used with a super charger ) , wiring things that the manufacturer says to not to cut and splice ( Bosch O 2 sensors ) and then the general crappola work in general.. I am sure I will find more crap here sooner than later. I will fix the O2 sensors and then see if my A/F mixtures are still a bit high. I might be going with a stand alone system for the tune since I have the car tagged out of Florida.Pectel is developed by Cosworth and the system seems very versatile.A system that might make the car's tuning a cinch. Not cheap but , effectively making it so I can actually do the minor adjustments with help of course which would be nice . I found someone closer than Mr.X that is willing to help.Mr.X is still helping me as much as he can but alas there is a serious logistics situation being he is every where and I am in the swamps.....
These 'experts' were the ones who dyno'd the S3. I had to threaten to drive off the dyno unless they followed my directions (more fans, etc.). Very difficult to deal with. Also tried to sell me on all kinds of 'upgrades' for the S3 based of course upon all the wonderful things they had done for you, David. Anybody wonder why I'm never going back ever again?
Happy New Year!
I would not blame you nor Constatine never going back to the shop.Hell they had my fancy smancy car cover over Constatine's car in the shop rather than mine , took it right out of my trunk.Trashed of course but , why have a 200$$$ plus car cover on a car in a filthy dirtty shop to begin with anyway.No rhyme or reason at that place except to bilk the customer for all they can at a given moment. Of course they are not the only shop with that creed..... Happy New year as well..... David C

I've used the Pectel system before, you might want to find out if customer service in the USA will be around much longer.
I heard they(Coswth) layed off people two months ago, seems the street stuff isn't selling to strong.
I don't do much with Pectel anymore but the old Pectel Technologies in now called Zentec, they are still a Southern Calif. company.
Gilles was the one I always worked with when it came to ECUs and wire looms.
There is also another system called Redline, thier systems are used on alot of the highend sandrails out here.

In his last email to me he had said there were other ways to go with the tune if I so desired. Thanks , I will look at it after I deal with my dog's surgery next week. I am really hoping that fixing the two O2 sensors will help the richness of the A/F as the butt connectors used in the splice could have gotten wet. I am as well still going to try to learn a bit about understanding the tuning of the ECU . Even if I go with another stand alone I will need to understand the basics as I am in the middle of nowhere and it is a transport truck carrying my car to somewhere to get it tuned .So I best learn a bit more than I know and with help I am sure I can tackle the situation from here in the swamps....
I read that and the fact of variable fuel pump control which I have , the Vanos and the Mapping via manifold pressure, throttle position, manifold and throttle or manifold ( I can get my air filter off of the ground ) , fly by wire etc... I will need a book for me to understand it all but , I am willing to learn what I have to learn.People want me to succeed with this car which is nice , so I can do this all the time.
David, the Bosch sensor have a bunch of available wire lengths from the factory. The sensor is identical, but the length is 19", 21", etc. You should measure what you want and just get the version with the right length of wire for your needs.
