Our tuning files are physically and diagnostically undetectable. That is now sorted, although it looked tidier with the cable under the cover I took another shot of the whole pick-up, this time in more favourable light. I bought four M8x80mm bolts, and nuts, and after removing the steering column mounting bolts one at a time I replaced them with the 80mm bolts, with the nuts wound-up to keep the column in position. So I like your chip very much, it allows the Caddy to climb much easier on the sometimes very long highway gradients! The engine used to run fine but only after hitting the dash to get the cluster to light up, It's been a while since the engine was removed from the golf as the Caddy project has taken a long time but my Son does not recall an imobiliser light, only ignition, oil and pre-heat. Because of their expertise in the hydraulics field they have been able to apply this knowledge to the automotive industry to give replacement brake hoses and fittings that outperform even the original equipment products.
I am not happy with the cone filter sitting in the middle of the nice warm engine bay so I was planning on doing something to address that anyway long to do list, as I mentioned. . I posted elsewhere on the forum about the special satisfaction that comes from taking victims when you are driving a modified car, most especially one that you have modified yourself. This picture was taken before the tonneau was fitted. If I remember right 1.
The van has covered about 10k in this state of tune and about 5k before that with just the injectors and no Re-map. Hui Caddy's running without dash cluster Hi guys, Thanks darren for the upload info, I've had a go and used the upload from my computer option and managed ok to get the picture on to my message but when I tried to see them and write a caption it did'nt work. Made the car legal there an export it back here. This is the maximum the standard turbo will push out, I'm running 1psi more than anyone says I should and I only get a whiff of smoke during spool.

To find out if the problem was with the speedo cable, the sender, or the speedo itself, I disconnected the cable at the speedo end again and poked it round the side of the instruments so I could see it from the driving seat.
However if it's illegal i highly doubt you would be able to hide a 1. The battery will be re-located behind the passengers seat. This is the 3rd variation of the chip that I have run, not only do I see the fuel savings made each and every time I fill up but I also feel the changes in the increased performance too. Edited 2 March, 2018 by Bete Noir Did the felicia 1. Run this to the same on the main ecu.
The dash was not lighting up for some reason so I replaced it with another and it was the same. Lol This was on the same rollers that my then standard 2. Thanks in advance, J I would personally say that may be a little too much for the box itself. I have tried other diesel tuning boxes for my previous vehicles Kia Sorento, Peugeot 206 and Vauxhall Vectra. What you have described there is actually what I have in one of my Ibizas.
I have a smile on my face every time I get in the car, and there is about 5-7mpg improvement. It would be illegal here. I think the Felicia box is fairly good - the weak point is the synchros, which are easily broken by trying to change gear too quickly, Phil - It's torque that breaks boxes, not bhp, for the record. Ten days and more than 1000 miles of mixed town, country, low and high speed driving later I am certainly getting more than 10% more from a gallon, and probably 15%, and the performance is markedly better. Not having the rigid load cover meant that I was not constrained to only carry level loads, which proved useful more than once.

Apart from a bit of attention to the electrics, no effort was required to keep it running for the next few months. Hui Hi there, Nice straight Caddy.
Engine code will be on there. I would like to keep standard felicia clocks if it's possible. Just fitting a diesel one to the 1600 tc petrol to see how it likes that final drive. Back in the day the only breakages I had with them was from trying to force the box too quickly, particularly in 2nd. A very minor detail but I also sourced a new grommet for the bonnet stay as the old one had stopped serving any useful purpose some time ago, judging by the state of it. You probably can understand this kind of insane projects. After all this time and work it was a real boost to hear the engine.
Because we tune your Caddy to its maximum efficiency you can also expect to improve fuel economy by around 10% although this depends on your right foot of course! They didn't notice the afh but the 1. Anyway I've sussed out how to get the mk1 caddy running without the dashboard connected as the engine was starting and stopping right away. I have never written a review before though strangely I do read them and take notice of them, whilst half-believing that they are written by the owner's chums! So, as the cluster is part of the link and the engine won't run without it, I set about figuring out how to by-pass the cluster. All the transplant bits which Tom had fitted to the Felicia with a combination of inspiration and perspiration were swapped onto the Caddy without requiring much of either especially from me. An after market speedo usualy takes a signal using a magnet and pick-up from a wheel or brake disc, I've used these on motorbikes before so shouldn't be a problem.
It does the job it's intended to do, i bet it's had more than 80 6 speed conversions in the back and countless engines! So either both dashes have the same problem or it's something else thats wrong. Further faffing about then ensued to finally get the cable off the sender, and the sender back in the gearbox. You should join up Maybe get a chance to see this thing in the flesh. I would pay for a photo of their faces when you smoke them. Getting the rpm signal to the original clocks from the 1. Phil Still on the first gearbox with the tuned tdi.
