  6. Data Logging - Wastegate (solenoid) duty cycle

    Anybody know if there's a reader/ software combination which can log the wastegate solenoid duty cycle on a Phase 2 T5?

    Have been looking at the ELM327 but doesn't appear to cover this parameter.

    Could well be the 'red' one - that's the main pressure hose from the compressor side of the turbo which effectively 'powers' the TCV/BCS.
