Try sending another email, they are very busy and this is their side business. It will be worth the wait

I have sent them 2 or 3 mails, two messeges on their site. The problem is not the waiting, it is the doubt that I will get something or not. I'm from Romania, and in this country we can't trust people, and we don't do stuff like sending the money in advance. In this case I sent it because I trust that the people from the UK have a different mentality. I hope I'm right  ;)

I would be very surprised if you did not receive what you've paid for. Both Andy and Pete are top blokes but are exceptionally busy, I have absolutely no doubt you WILL receive your parts, they just have a lot on. I know Andy works a lot and I think travels a lot with work so perhaps hasn't had the chance to sort PPP issues out.

Hi Hunor,

I don't think all replies from me are getting through - please try adding *@poloperformanceparts.co.uk to your trusted senders list!

The chip is showing as being in Romania, so should be with you tomorrow - you can check its progress here:
https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item
Item number is: RN026629235GB

There's been a bank holiday in the UK which will have added another day to the original shipping time.

The chip is here, hurra  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Andy, I don't understand why the replies don't get to me... but in the end the chip is here, Thank you very much. If you ever need any help from here you can always count on me.
I forgot to ask how much HP shoud I expect with this G40008 chip, 250cc injectors, 1bar boost, ABU camshaft, lighter flywheel, 50mm exaust sistem?

Meanwhile I heard some interesting stuff, please enlighten me  :)
Someone who in theory is a G40 mecanic sad that the timeing and idling should be set in the learning mod of the ECU. But he wouldn't tell me how to acces this mod, saying that this is his secret...

When the engine is warm (wait for the cooling fan to cut in), you unplug the blue temperature sensor. This puts the ECU into "service mode". In this mode you can adjust the idle speed and the base ignition timing, as the ECU runs a fixed amount of ignition advance in this mode.

When you've made your adjustments, plug the sensor back in and away you go.

Hello, I'm back, the car is on the road, but i have an entire list of problems... Where should I begin... I made the wiring, the vacuum lines, etc. The main problem is that I adjusted the ignition advance, to 6° and the idle to 1100 rpm in service mode, but when I plug in the blue temp sensor the ignition advance moves about 3cm backwards, and the idle rise to 1400-1500 rpm.
What can I do?

And some pictures:

When the blue temp sensor is plugged back in the ECU takes control of the ignition advance again. It varies the ignition advance to control the idle speed. The idle speed should be set to ~900rpm, so you've set it too high - the ECU will be retarding the ignition advance to try to reduce the idle speed.

k, i got it. someone sad that I should take the car and measure the CO2, and should set it from the screw under de blue cap on the air temp sensor to get 1.5-1.8 value. what do you say abaut this?

I made a mistake in the previous post, not the CO2 shoud be 1.5-1.8, the CO should be at that value. Today I was at a service and we measured the emission, the CO in service mod was over 8, and I couldn't get it under 5.4. It was sugested to me that it gets to much fuel, and I should put back the 200cc injectors, this way we might be able to resuce the CO value to 1.5-1.8. Guys, help me, what do you think about this?

Is that rpm reading correct at 520rpm?! Lambda reading is also very rich - which is understandable if it's struggling to run.

If so, make sure the car is up to temperature (engine is hot) and that it's at a raised idle speed (here in the UK CO reading should be done at a specific rpm - I forget which).

The rpm reading is wrong, in service mod, with the idle screw closed it is at 1000-1100, and I can't get it lower.

I would suspect air leak somewhere after the throttle. Worth checking!
