Kinell, that's something I do forget often, the £postage.. Sorry I forgot the DTI, it's still on the bench where I left it!

Was it the sensor units you'd found? They look like a riser PCB with 3 pins and a unit at the top... If it's like that maybe the unit on the PCB can be found...

? Does the MAP unit itself look like it's case comes to bits or is it a solid potted unit? Thinking maybe re-flow the solder on it, maybe it's physically cracked a track or just the pin-ponts... We should have tried waggling it to see if therte was any kind of change.! If you can get over here there's a few things could be tried "just quick" on it electro-mechanically. And I can plug it in my car to see if it cures it...

I've spent most of my waking day watching a 3d printer do some of those badges, stupid rain, we should be outside spraying..!

EG Replacing just this bit?

This is just the bit off the top of the MAX RPM one, can we get to your original ?

Yay, I've got test badges!

Last call here for any of the eBay bits.

They’ll be tossed into the shed of no return soon.

I’m just wondering if that’s why my old chip from pit stop stopped working because of the map was working great then suddenly just stopped ruining the car.
I’m hoping that swapping the sensor over is going to cure the long issue of the bad running to the car.espically paying 16€ shipping fee was nearly as much as the cost of the chip.i see why the products are now cheap because the shipping prices are so high

Yehaa, be nice when it's done! Yeah I know you've ordered one, can't wait!

…. but has anyone got experience of uprated sensors, that have got one even that can advise..? I bet you have seen a few haven't you Pete..? :-). What d'you recon, will it need specially chipping?

I did think after, that other chip would be worth plugging in and seeing if the PC connects to it to see if it's processing enough to send data in and out, once the sensors swapped.. !

Nice one, sorted soon

It was good to meet you to mate had a good time fiddling with the engine.
So basically do I need to order a replacement or are we ok with what we have and just need to play about with a few sensors and things?
I will have a look for other inserts and tell me what else you need and I will see what I have mate

Nice to meet you my new old matey!!
Just to check our logic, plugged into a newly powered ecu it gives 'no signal' Map sensor fault.. That'd be right wouldn't it Paul? Just sitting at 45%

Anyone solder swapped a sensor and got the old?
It said 200kpa on it, there's a few 250s that look like they might fit but would need mapping.. I just got that mezsage about one i bst similar..!
Maybe the lower load reading might make up for the bigger injectors but it should be mapped really.. Lambda control will sort most of it out i hope..

Cool mate, happy days.. honoured to meet such a nice normal engineering blole.. Thanks for the door inserts but they are the wrong side :-)

Does anyone know the best place to get a replacement map sensor?i can look myself but rather than buy the first one I find I’d rather ask if anyone ones he best place to buy and save myself a few quid rather than spend more tHan I need to.cheers matt

The model, with "painted" surfaces that I'll have to dip in red, spray black then wet-flat the black off the letters...

I'm gonna run one off when we've sprayed the bonnet hopefully tomorrow.. 3D printing to me means hours of hot fumes while watching a machine that could screw up at any moment, but I can get as stoned as I want doing it..!

I can find ones to buy, but I had one once so I class it as fixing that one, if it does any good..

Yahee thanks matey, that's the one...

It's easy enough to stick a proper one on the photocopier for the outline and build it from that, but a photo is even better... It can be made to contour the different colors as heights...  I snapped mine 10 years ago...!

It'll be a white ABS plastic base to start (I've got some red PLA filament but it's too gunky) , although I've got some glow-in-the-dark filament that'd be just as good... Then paint it whatever colour by hand.. I've had a litre of Tornado-Red(r) turn up yesterday so I might try dipping or spraying it with that, or black base-coat or over-the-top etc etc etc…

I'll have a go from that photo that might just be enough..

Cheers m'duck
