Hangar 111 - they did the 280s kit I have, so are probably best placed to get the best setup...

I have also emailed ECUMaster to see if they can give some pointers on helping me sort my fuel readings to the GARW dash

Good stuff, H111 are a bit far for me but looking to get into RRR Engineering for my install, looking like August at the earliest atm.

The guys at RRR Engineering were great when I got mine fitted :)

Good news! Have you discussed T/C with them at all? I believe the EMU has a couple of options for it, one using the ABS speed sensors that came on all S2's and one using an aftermarket speed sensor for some more gucci functionality.

I've not discussed Traction Control with them because it's not on my radar.... :/ Lets not forget I'm driving the Naturally Aspirated version, haha ;) I only need it if I'm driving like a plonker in the rain ;) With smooth inputs mine is pretty planted.

I'm pretty sure the software shows it down the side bar and you can just turn it on with the parameters you choose. Again, I've not looked in too much depth because mine is far less likely to break loose than if I'd got some kind of forced induction...

Yeah fair enough, my current T/C is always disabled on track anyway otherwise it just kicks in every time the inside rear tries spinning up - can't drive hard with it at all. I believe the EMU module for it has got options for variable slip though which might make it a bit more useful in wet conditions so it's something I may look into, just as a bit of a safety net.

In which case.... I may have a play when I get chance! :) I could definitely use a 'safety net' at Cadwell Park in the wet, lol! ;)

So my car is still at hangar 111, initial map done with an increase in torque and power, however they are not fully happy with it as it seems to be doing some strange things at the top of the Rev range. They are checking plugs, fuel pump and injectors, although plugs were done 2018 less than 10k miles ago, and fuel pump and injectors were upgraded as part of the 280s kit. It could be crappy fuel I guess, but that’s unlikely...

Waiting to hear what they find
