BUT a lot of problems can be found in poor wireing, I now use a supersoft wire and crimp all joints to help prevent solder spikes and brittle sheer points inside the wires, another thing I have started to do is label all wires as the supersoft wire is black only, realy helps in fault finding or component changing

    As for mapping, It pays to get it done professionaly, even with my best efforts after a session on a set of rollers I got an extra 40hp and 45 ftlbs of torque, I have seen a few people really struggle at this stage using a DIY Ecu, which in my opinion is a bit of a false economy, not only with reliability, but back-up as well,
    Just to show it can be done at home, buying at the right price, Ebay or word of mouth, dosent need to cost a fortune if you buy hardware 2nd hand



    Ian , what sort of crimps do you use ? I thought that crimps created more of a resistance than solder ? I've some alterations to make so info gratefully recieved

    Kapri, I do use a reasonable set of ratchiting crimps for non insulated terminals rather than the horrible sheet metal ones that infest everbodys toolbox
    The fella that taught me a lot about the electrical side of car did his apprenticeship at the prodrive rally team, mostly making WRC looms, and now works for a leading F1 team, he NEVER solders wires always crimps, and aslo uses the best we he can get, for least resistance, thats why my injection is wired using supersoft ultra fine strand wire

    assuming your idea of ripaults is the same as mine, the standard open non insulated crimp terminal, with the crimp and the integeral insulation support, YES, not the pre insulated things that fall off.
