Re: VHPD Emerald map files wanted

It was mapped by Dynotech in Ripley Derbyshire. The guy who runs the dyno appeared to know his stuff and makes his own ecus.

Re: S1 Wheels - What are the available options?

Revolution wheels make them with the near enough correct offset and pcd. No idea if they are any good, they can’t be heavier than the Rimstocks. I think TMRs are very rare and expensive.

Re: VHPD Emerald map files wanted

You have my map(s) now. Enjoy. I had a quick look at the maps and I would play around with the three choices. I think the maps are the same but I was messing about trying to get good idle control over temp/pressure/loads and gave up. Map 1 is fully open loop and does not use the IACV or ignition adv...

Re: VHPD Emerald map files wanted

I’ll send it tomorrow. Use map 1. That was done on the rollers. My car did make 187hp, if you believe the dyno! I never managed to get my car through the Mot with the map but it did run ok once warm with all accessories off. My car has the iacv so it is used that for idle control (and ignition advan...

Re: VHPD Emerald map files wanted

I have got one from my 190 with verniers(otherwise std). It never worked very well but you are welcome to it. PM me your email and I’ll send it over. You may have better luck than me. I went back to the std ecu, much better.

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

The pain in the a.. is that the dashboard panel was painted with Senotex paint and as far as I know the only one that still has it is Elise Shop... Kind regards I have not tried this but I read somewhere that Morso paint for wood burners is pretty similar, it’s grey, matte and even called Senotherm!

Re: Headlights and indicators glowing on

I’m not sure where the front headlamp ground is. In the two pictures you can see where the main front earth point is, I expect it ends up there. You can also see the clamp wiring and the connector which must have the ground. It’s the earth to the chassis that must be good. I would not expect clean i...

Re: Headlights and indicators glowing on

I have had a quick look at some wiring diagrams and think the poor earth suggestion is a good option. I think you have cleaned the earth connection for the headlamps? It must be that one. Even if you have done that try adding a nice chunky wire to the earth post and then connect the other end to ear...

Re: Headlights and indicators glowing on

Are the main beams on, in which case the driving lamps should be on? Do you have a multimeter? It sounds like the power to the headlamps is making its way to the indicators with a high resistance, which is why the lamps are dim. Don’t leave them on for long as something could get hot. If you switch ...
