    I'm going to assume he means the London Ultra Low Emission Zone.

    It's an Evo 9 3 plug ECU, or 3 pin Evo 8. Most Evo 4-8 has the same physical plug as the same physical 4 pin connector as the VR-4, but with differing pinouts.

    That's got the wrong loom connection type, so will need a total conversion harness to even get connected to the car. It's also discontinued by AEM, so unlikely to be in support - don't know if they provide any kind of extended support for legacy products.

    Here is a simple illustration of the OBD-II port located on the underside of the dash, near the driver's left knee: ---------------------------- \. .\ ..------------------------ Grounding pin 1 is the way to obtain any stored error codes. You can ground it to a chassis point, any other earth, or most usually (because it's closest and easiest) pin 4. I use a short piece of wire with stripped ends for the desired effect. A paperclip...

    You can *read* every single diagnostic code with nothing more than a paperclip. You can *reset* every diagnostic code, other than on the SRS system, by disconnecting the battery. You can log engine ECU onto the PC and play back the data with EvoScan and the £10 cable mod. You can bleed the AYC by jacking the car up, putting the car into gear and turning the steering wheel left and right.

    Do you have a link to the specific unit, couldn't quite figure out whether this is a model released in 2008 or 2018!

    My initial thought was that it swapped between the two HI/LO Fuel/Ignition tables - I could have sworn that they had slightly different values in them, but looking back now, they seem to be duplicates of each other. Any insight you can provide will be great!

    That's really interesting, thanks BCX! Don't suppose you've decoded the signal from the Gearbox ECU into B16? :D

    All of those are 15-20 year old technology. Back then, it was the best you could get. Nowadays, the options are so much better - there's a reason there's a few of those old things up for sale - people trying to make a quick buck selling them to an unsuspecting buyer, because they've upgraded to something that is so much better! The ECU, especially when you've changed an engine massively, like throwing a big single turbo on it, is critical to healthy running of the engine. Having tried to...

    The Evo 4-8 are plug compatible, but not pin compatible. You still need to move pins around, it's not plug and play. There isn't a base map provided by Link for the 6A13TT, however I am happy to help get you up and running with mine as a basis (although mine is modified reasonably, so again can't drop it in and expect it to go). If you've got a basic understanding of engines, fuel, ignition etc, then the Help provided within the PCLink software is excellent, and is really in depth at...

    Very nice job! Not looking forward to dropping mine out and seeing what mess it's in! At least it was working when I parked it up, so that's one thing...!

    Hi Stuart, There's no aftermarket ECU that fits off the shelf. An Evo 4-8 style ECU is plug compatible, but the VR-4 needs extra ignition outputs. I have a Link ECU G4+ Xtreme in my Anglia, which is running a 6A13TT engine, and it has been an abolute dream to get set up and running. Yes - it's a modern ECU and isn't the cheapest, however, I truly believe that you will spend less money overall by buying a decent ECU now, rather than trying to cobble together something with an ECU...

    :sweethear Thank you for those very kind words, it means a lot! I went back and re-watched a few clips of earlier videos not long ago, and I was definitely cringing at how awkward I was! Still feel a little like that now, but much less so! I did put a new set of injector seals in 4-5 years ago, and they still felt pretty soft when I pulled them out. Although, saying that, having a spare set laying around certainly won't hurt! :) I'll message you with address and to sort it out :)

    After making the coolant radiator fit, I now start to squeeze some chargecooler components into whatever empty space I can find. This time I finish off the cooling system changes, and put them under pressure to test my work.

    If I remember correctly, UKDM cars had 2 piece front lights - the main headlamp unit was glass (and some were electrically adjustable), with a separate plastic indicator, whereas the VR-4 has single-piece plastic (and were not electrically adjustable). Also, I'm pretty sure that they are a direct fit replacement. Not sure about EUDM LHD ones though, have not seen any in person! However, if you're feeling brave, I'm sure that the actual reflectors in them are the same fitment, so take a...
