Mikey Bikey's Scimega

Mk1 - they both have in-tank pumps but no return line on the later tanks.

Head scratcher.

DGMS or a converted DGAS - and if converted, how was it achieved?

Head scratcher.

I’d guess the autochoke isn’t doing quite what it should?

It did take a while to upload to the forum (and I’m on 4G) by the way - you might not have given it sufficient time?

Hi all, is this a ss1 turbo technics conversion??

That’s not for an SS1 - the exhaust ports don’t match the CVH. The turbo also sits at an angle as well on the SS1.

Welcome by the way!

C313FHB , SS1 no#437

I did wonder as the choke flaps are open. You should be able to set the choke with a full press of the throttle before turning the ignition on - this should close the flaps and set the idle speed to “cold”. When the engine is running, the blue canister should be receiving volts (about 8 or 9 I think...

After Market ECU

A google suggests (assuming you've got everything else, such as the full loom), it will run OK with an Autobox-configured engine ECU, just flag up a fault code for "can't communicate with automatic gearbox". It'll even run with the ECU from a 2.6 if that's easier (read cheaper) to find. You then hav...

After Market ECU

On the earlier 3.0's (like mine) it needed a matched set of ECU, immobiliser ring and key (or chip). Not sure if the later ones can run with just this - there's one on ebay which I think might be for your engine but not sure if they differ between manual or auto: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-...

After Market ECU

I didn’t realise the 3.2 V6 didn’t come with the GM ECU etc - that changes things somewhat! Have you looked at Speeduino? Mr. Crosby is going with one of them but most importantly he’s picked an ECU his chosen rolling road knows and is happy with - that’s probably the most important aspect for you i...
