Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Hi Connor.
Sorry to inform you that items are not allowed to be bought to the meet for sale, and laid out in the open, you are more than willing to bring item that you may have organised with other owner or members previously either through the sales thread on here or any other forum we at the nano list our meet.

This is not solely aimed at you it is just part of the rules of the nano, therefore you would be lugging the parts around with you for nothing i am afraid cheers Arctic

Another great nano meet moved into the history books, we had the fantastic pleasure and return of a crew member Mr Vis himself Dave (Stocktake ) big thanks, Sunday was a good turn out too even though it was fathers day 20 plus cars.

Great news to hear Chriski got his clutch sorted out, which need topping up as is seems to have lost fluid over a period of time, Mark saved the day and got ti topped up for him :thumb:

Once again quite a lot of jobs got done by various members/owners the Vt4 that was kindly borrowed to Stefan by (Jamie) so a few cars could be looked into on the Saturday, Duncan for bring and working his T4 on the Sunday.

Quite a few new owners and members attending who insured me that they we be attending again the next meet being July 22nd & 23rd if you have never been to one of our nano meets please do try to come I am sure you will enjoy a good day or weekend if you decide to camp all the best Arctic

Currently weighing up wether to get replacement bosch sensor or invest in a Ronbox

Thanks again

Hi Connor.
Steer clear of the Ronbox it only fools the ECU (Engine Control Unit) into asking for more fuel, also it can damage the HPFP in the long run if you want more torque and power and better MPG go for the 160 upgrade, drop me a PM and I will give you the details of the best person to get in touch with Arctic.

PS I forgot to change your intercooler O-rings we can talk about that at the same time

Steve, re the Ron box does it damage the HPFP at certain setting? My Ron box is set at the mid point.

Can you supply details of how to get the 160 upgrade?

Cheers

Mike

Connor was only looking at the ronbox to compensate for a slightly low MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) reading. I seem to remember it was around 460 at idle when I normally see around 500. I think he said he had a remap anyway. There's another check that might be worth doing. Unplug the MAF and se if your dead spot as you pull away is improved. If so then your MAF is out enough to be causing issues. Personally I would (and did) go for a replacement MAF.
