    That's a bit concerning then. Still going to order some more oil, but if that's true then it should not be the problem and am a bit out of ideas then. Next step I quess would be to order some sensors and try if those are fried.

    So, updates. Was home so late last night that did not bother to log in. First the good news; Found boost pressure! Got to 1bar according to the turbo timer thingie. There was one pipe that had the under side of the lip twisted and fitting that correctly seemed to fix that. Then the "neutral" -Sensors seemed to be in good order. Gave them a clean and checked all cables -Vacuum chamber seemed to be in good order and tubes were tight. Some wear, but nothing that should leak. -Swifter...

    First update; ECU is MD761988, so that should be a match as far as I think. Will post update when I get a little bit more sorted out.

    Wow! I do so much love this community! Would not have expected so many answers and so good ones! Thanks a lot for this one! Will check it in a few hours. If that is the problem will just have to find some Amsoil from Finland quickly :D I did have to change one of the sensors from the other box as the case was broken. I think I'll check both and part numbers for them.

    Would you happen to have a link to the procedure? I went with the amounts from the oils and liquids post since that all I came across scouring here. Could very well be then that the oil level is not close enough. I did check it cold and hot that it's in the markings, but did not do it in any specific way.

    Yup, went with Amsoil so should be good on that! Though I do think I have a bigger oil cooler so not sure how much more oil I would need due to that. Any idea if a 100-200ml difference could cause something like this?

    Thanks! I actually just got a message back from the seller saying that the ECU was never touched(going to double check still tomorrow), so I'm expecting there to be a MD975141 ECU with the current W5A51-3-E6A transmission that should match. According to him the combo was also working with the W5A51-3-E6B transmission, but I quess that was a lucky accident. Any other ideas what the transmission problem could be except for the mismatching ECU? I'm thinking of checking the sensors, that...

    Thanks a lot! Tomorrow I'm going to be taking the turbo piping off that I had to take off earlier for the transmission job, so going to check those thoroughly. As for the transmission ECU, I'm thinking it should be the original the car has had, as the seller gave all the old stuff to me on sale and it did not include any ECU except the on in the car. Will check the model tomorrow also and ping the seller if he has any parts left accidentally.

    So, this will be a bit of a long post, so TL;DR first Bought a Legnum with broken transmission. Had a spare on hand and did the job. Now the car is driving, but seems to have no boost pressure and error codes 43, 72, 24 and 77. Any ideas? Now for the whole and long stuff. So, the car is a 1996 Pre-facelift VR-4 that seems to be a winter spec. The guy I bought from seemed to have some knowledge on cars, but didn't seem to be most familiar with all the stuff Legnums have going on them....

    Thanks! Been lurking here for a few years on and off, but now I actually have something to use the resources on. Actually got the paid membership before making the deal on the car even. Was hoping to make some documentation on the progress to possibly do some writeup, but got too excited doing the project and didn't take enough pictures.

    Greetings from Finland. Just recently got a project Legnum VR4 1996 that has transmission problems. Still need to assemble the new transmission and after that can get to assessing the car properly. The car it self has been almost a daily driver for quite a while to previous owners, but has been sitting with the broken transmission for a bit over six months. Also at least two previous owners did not do the best work on keeping it in shape, so some rust here and there, some pain chipping...
