Well after all the mods I have done plus an engine rebuild and change from RV8 to 351W we have finally managed to get it started today. Like to give a huge thank you to Steve Senior who has given up his entire weekend to help with supposedly setting up the Mega Squirt, but in actual fact in the end managed to help me fix all the things which went wrong ( which is far toooo long to go into now ) but at least it is running. Just have to play around with all the settings now and try to get it through an MOT :angry:

If it works have attached a clip of it running

Really pleased that you managed to get it ready for the MOT. And congratulations on the pass. All the hard work, blood, sweat and tears (well nearly at times :D ) have now paid off.

Good luck with getting up to Elvington, hope its a problem free journey for you.

Did you and Robert manage to get the engine map set up?

Yep, spark map is working fine now, the engine is running a bit on the rich side, just need to back that down a bit to ensure it doesn't start washing the bores. :thumb:
