    With the long term trim fault, air/vac leak looks most likely, but did see mention of faulty/on its way out oxygen sensor could contribute to this code without throwing its own code, might be worth swapping out if you have a spare to see if that clears the issue. Failing that as you mentioned, smoke testing I'd do next as I'd not think that your maf is at fault.

    MAF & ETM are brand spanking new from FRF. I replaced a check valve in the EVAP line and did 90 miles yesterday and it seemed much happier. There were some flutters at the same point 2800 under mild acceleration/ partial throttle, but they seemed to dissolve as the miles rolled by, so it could be MAF scaling or bad partial mapping? There were no lights until I got a bit carried away, on the way and pushed her up to 1 bar. Again she complained of long term fuel trim upper limit. I think the fuel trims get reset when the DTC is reset, because after I did it, using TORQUE PRO - the fuel trim was all over the place. She wouldn't start and stay started, idle went weird and it didn't settle down again for 20 minutes or so. So I am happy enough to think that this is more likely to do with the map itself, though it wouldn't harm to do a swap on the lamdba sensor (which one - I assume you mean the front one?). Sadly I don't have one I can use. I need to do the 2nd oil change now. Just toying with the decision to either use mineral oil again or start on the semi-synth?

    front was the one I was thinking of, I think the plugs differ from the 850 ones, I do have a v70 one here that I could send you to try if the plug is right, good to hear your getting out and about in her, that will spur you on to get her finished and on the strip...

    Even with discount FRF will want 250 quid for a new front O2. I wish I knew more about how VIDA works - I've really only scratched the surface. Apparently you can log AFR? I have a wide band AFR gauge but no where to screw it in & TBH once the mapping is done I don't think I will have the mental space to track AFR AND boost whilst driving.

    I will soon be logging with 4.4 and tunerpro and just in the process of setting up vida on my laptop....that could take a while with my computer skill set these days, I used to be good with all that stuff but I have lapsed some what over the years and now need to try and catch back up very quickly.

    Not posted anything for a year.

    GWE exhaust was replaced for one fabricated by ShemTek. There is a long list of additional work going on not just including replacing the fuel sender with an 850 so that a return line can be added. Rising rate FPR and Nuke fuel rail is going in. There is additional fabrication on the harness bar. Rear trailing arm bushes have been done too (I think they were original?).
    Sadly I couldn't get the Momo steering wheel to fit. The boss doesn't have the right fitting for turn signal cancel and it is too much of a pain in the ar$e to have a car that doesn't have self cancelling signals.

    Hopefully once the fueling is sorted out the real tuning with all the new mods including WMI can be completed. Some days I find it hard to maintain the enthusiasm to keep this going, but I don't want this car to go onto the long list of failed projects. BTW I've not seen the car since March.

    It's good to here that work is still progressing Dave, but as you say, it is hard to keep pushing on with these projects and even harder when our main 1/4 mile playgrounds have been closed. Hopefully York will be back up and running by the time the SSB is ready for action.
