2 injectors popped on my 12 month old C2 VTS, along with the ignition coil breaking down, inlet manifold falling off and various other sensors failing...lol... As unreliable as British weather...

Much happier with the squeeks and rattles, rusty bolts and corroding alloys on my Fiat!

Re: Re-Map Has Blown 3 Injectors

Sorry to hear about your problems. There's always a risk with remapping - whatever they tell you.

The other risk if you do go down the cover it up and hope the dealer doesnt notice is that your dealer has already read your post and may not take too kindly to you trying it on.

I'm not saying they are here for sure, but there are a fair few dealer techs & service desk staff on here, even sales staff too.

Had a test drive last evening in my MJET for a steering problem, and the tech (i think hes the DET) knew me from here, though im not sure if hes an active member/poster.

Anyone care to offer a decent explanation of exactly what paremters a rolling road can analyse?
when the car is on a rolling road, it can be held at load sites and then the ECU can be quized as to what is going on. you cannot do this on the road. its the whole point of tuning a car on a rolling road, they're not just for power runs.
