Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Another update for info purposes, as trackrod suspected my MAP reading now has also similarly dropped from around 68-69KPa to 61-62kPa.

If that’s the OEM exhaust it is amazingly heavy. I had a new spare which I chucked in the skip.
Yep that was the OEM bit of kit, 2Bular on the car now which I like a lot although I do slightly miss that hornet's nest zing that the old system had however I now have a lovely burble sound.

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Good news that you finally found the reason for the rich running, thanks for sharing :thumbup: What do you think, how did the exhaust leak messed up the mixture? Could be that the missing back pressure had an influence on the MAP values or maybe some air has been sucked in to the exhaust system and...

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Excellent chaps, they are sweet when running properly 8-) Pottering along with no hesitation just blip through the gears effortlessly, like a different car it is and the mid range pull up to 5k is almost disturbing. But on my test drive I noticed a strong fuel smell when pulling up at a junction. No...

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

So by way of update I have resolved my running issues were mainly a rich running condition. Vac lines replaced and t-pieces, coolant temperature sensor and air temperature sensor. Result, seemed to be slightly improved but in reality still very rich. Next step was to go with a hunch and treat the ca...

Re: misfire detection kit

I'm curious what the MDK consists of on the Exige, is it a separate black box that is wired to the ECU?

Re: misfire detection kit

Cheers Deggles, I'm just trying to resolve a running rich issue and saw someone with similar experience but with an Elise found the cause was the MDK. From what I've read the MDK was installed on the Exige as part of a recall to manage a potential rev limit issue cutting in at 5500rpm which was happ...

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Check the T-connectors as well when you're replacing the hose. I found a couple of mine had gone very brittle so replaced those as well whilst it was all apart. Indeed that is what prompted full replacement as i was checking the t-piece connectors one of them snapped so a full set ordered plus extr...
