When poking around, have you knocked off the vacuum pipe on the Map sensor? Its a pipe that goes from the ECU to the throttlebody.

is it a thin black wire that clips underneath a red circular thing inside the airbox mucca?

Nope :) Its a black tube about 3mm in diameter that goes from the right hand side of the engine bay (ECU) that goes onto a bit at the bottom of the throttlebody (which the airbox sits on).
