Way up van ran so sweet couldnt believe it... more vacuum than I've ever seen and dudnt miss a beat no smell of over fuelling in cab too!!! Tonnes of power to play with and possibly quieter and more deeper note...
Way back idle was stuck at 2-2.5k ish?!? Lumpy and not much vac registering on gauge...
Got back ok but on inspection the idle adjustment grub screw has somehow found its way further in and the lock nut was free to spin....
Ergo i figure due to throttle not actually shutting there wasn't enough vac to suck the boost valve shut
Hence absolute stinky fumey journey home bogging and generally crap compared to this morning ...
Find out tomo if made any difference just shutting throttle back down to acceptable idle !?

So possible breakthru ... today got multi meter out decided ill investigate the gas sensor wiring ... well Yes its there but.....
It defo does not go to the corresponding pins on ecu! Pin 29 &39 are inputs from gas sensors... both have 2inch of wire going no where fast....
Todays job will be rewire that! May save a load of fuel!!

So got the 2 hego (lamda) sensors wired up. Poss in limp mode now .
Had to resolder a wire on maf ((again)) as was not revving up properly. Didnt wanna upset neighbour again so test deive soon see how she runs and if she will go over 3k !
Promising tho and easily recersable if all goes to pot.
Hopeing if sucessful will run better and give better economy too!

Are you sure yours aren't also 7j because you wouldnt be able to open side door with 8inch wide wheels im sure and mins are also 30mm ish from edges! Well now technically 8mm due to stick on lip extensions
