Re: B-problems

after a long time, here's an update:

after a long period of looking for answers, i finally found one:


replace the whole engine or total recovery (direct translated )


it's totally broken, the crankshaft, the pistons, the cylinders, everything.
Only the engine head is pretty OK. I hope....

Because of the broken crankshaft bearings, there are a lot of little iron-pieces in the engine (i think). i hope the oilfilter has filtered out a lot of pieces, else i have to replace the camshafts in the head too...
so, now i have the choice: replace the engine (cheap, but high risk, i can buy another broken engine) or recovery (expensive, but i get a new engine back).


Someone wants to donate

Getting there, but the progress has been made by GSR/Red-Dot..........managed to gain 151 bhp in KC3's with induction kit, Supersprint exhaust, ECU re-map, uprated fuel pump but is still a work in progress..............

Re: B-problems

hmm, all useful software will ONLY work with a DIY scanner:
http://www.blafusel.de/misc/obd2_kw_usb-interf.html

this one. you can make it by yourself and in supports most protocols (KW71, KW2000, ISO, etc) and its inexpensive. and it uses a USB port!

So the only way to read a ECU (some people on dutch forums have succesfully read their ECU) is to use the software with the DIY scanner, because the software won't work with ELM. only with the DIY.....
