    As per title really.
    Just wondering boost levels and what your cars made on the rollers.

    Had a vac issue with mine over weekend that then kicked in eml.

    All corrected now and reset eml
    Took some readings now car is boosting well and was very surprised.

    Wish I knew who mapped it :worried:

    If you don't know, Get it to Chris at Efi and get it mapped properly.

    If you get all the upgrades you want to make first It'll save you later.

    Welcome to the zero paperwork car club!.Since I've had mine, I keep all the paperwork. I spent at least a year, sorting out all the problems. Mine was mapped at RST,running around 1.3bar.

    It must be us older guys Arthur that take these chances :smile:

    I’m very happy with the car.
    A couple of small niggles to address but on the whole it’s been a successful gamble.

    It’s an Albi blue f1 r27.
    Not my chosen colour tbh but in the flesh it’s much nicer than the pics show. Quite a metallic to it in the sun.

    Came with r26 18s but I’ve ordered speedlines and 595 rsr pro boots.

    It has some weirdness going on with headlights - side light flashes for about 15 seconds when first switch on. Other than that it’s ok and I’ll sort that.

    Over time I’ll be refreshing every single suspension component and upgrading various parts. I’ll be building paperwork for it!

    Thanks

    So I’ve now messaged RS Tuning and they have confirmed they did not map this vehicle

    I’ll now try Engine dynamics and efi to see if they recognise reg
