    Default Ahhhhhhh! Sods law strikes again!

    My digital A'pexi boost controller arrived and I fitted it in the dark and tried it but I was a bit tired by 02:00 so I stopped.

    Went to carry on today and something seemed wrong...

    After checking all the connections and examining every item I found that my DC vacuum pump had given up on life! (not a standard part of the car)

    So my boost controller became a very expensive boost gauge....

    Not to worry though, I should have a new pump next weekend and I can still increase the boost to a lesser degree by using a restrictor and the boost controller.

    Really looking forward to seeing the dyno results for this next weekend Spoons seems to have had slightly more luck, but I think it'll be chuffin close when the pair of you go head to head on the rollers

    I'll be pushing it to 28PSI, so I'll be expecting 210+bhp and 340+lbft.

    If I don't get a new vacuum pump though, it could be down around 200bhp and 300lbft....

    Does anyone know where I can get a feed for engine RPM and kmph/mph except the back of the dials?

    Isn't there one to the back of the radio? There must be some kind of signal - although it's probably CANBUS - that feeds the Speed Dependent Volume Control feature
