they said it was an Blitz access ECU that came pre-programmed with settings for Altezza with the s.c fitted, im sure it would need to get mapped to run on 95Ron unless they could do this for you if requested.

This this project will have to go on hold for a while so. Too many unknowns, and trying to buy a house at the moment so dunno how i could explain a supercharger to the girlfriend!

just after the rolling road i had to drop my car off to cda . so i broke down ;) had to drop the car off to the guarage because the oil pump is broke and there waiting for a part to come from japan :twisted:

the fule pump i was send was incorect it was for the is200 so that added another 2 weeks to the building time . im having the car serviced at the same time and hope to be collecting it next week sometime :)

so far so good shes bought it all :P

all is good and she dosnt have a clue about the ammount ive spent . she know i love cleaning the car and keeping it look good she knows i bought some new engine cleaners so wont come as to much of a supprise when she see'd a big shiny intercooler
