    Cool build, the length on the intake pipes shouldn't matter too much. If it does, simply move the MAF closer to the throttle body by going to blow-through setup instead of a draw-through.

    got anymore pics of the car?

    That won’t be an issue for the MAF. The motor will still run like stock.

    If it’s running better with the MAF unplugged you have another issue going on.

    Certainly doesn't seem to. With it disconnected, runs just fine but connected I get overboost spikes, knock, timing cut, fuel cut; proper kangaroo fuel. So much so I think that's led to the clutch plate failure this weekend.

    Okay lets get to the basics, which MAF are you running?

    Have you pressure tested you system?

    Are you running an open dump valve?

    Are you using the standard values in Chrome or have you changed any tables in that case which ones?

    Which injectors are you using?

    Are you running an open dump valve? - Yes but am aware that doesn't work well with the MAF. Blow through would have been better with this.

    Are you using the standard values in Chrome or have you changed any tables in that case which ones? - Standard on fuel and timing, with some tweaks to rad fan temps to control the forward electric cooling pump. CELs disabled, lower boost etc.

    Which injectors are you using?
    - stock

    Still working away on this epic project car 🙂
    Wrecked the main bearings last June due to oil starvation under braking while at Bedford Autodrome GT circuit. Not normally a problem on hill climbs!
    Now have a NA engine in with the mods to run with the turbos while I rebuild the turbo motor.
    Have also added bypass valves to the exhaust and want to control then via the ECU and noticed the update on the chromed pages for AE. Can someone post the code I need to add to the XML file for the fix please?

    BTW, engine was running great with the Matt Pro installed but think the original root cause of the poor running was a faulty new knock sensor, though I have not removed the Pro to recheck as it was running so well. Was progressing nicely with the timing maps to remove knock, getting to grips with chromed. Shame the shells picked up. At first I suspected that was down to the poor location and size of the oil cooler, perhaps to solidly mounted, so have moved to a larger one in the left side pod, with a fan too but looking at the sump think it more likely oil surge. As the engine is longitudinal mounted at a slight downhill angle too, might require some extra baffling.
