However the maf connector is a 3 pin which info suggests is for a catalyzer model....

Unfortanitly I only have 2 off 4 pin mafs

Also the power transistor wiring doesn't exist in the loom

Ben, I’ve got loads of bits of loom here including a full uncut one. I’ll be stripping off the biding tape, so hopefully you’ll be able to copy that.

AFAIK, having a three pin MAF won’t make any difference to you. I’d suggest that you socket the ECU and put a Horesham stage 2 chip in it. That should easily give you 250bhp with what you have already. I understand that that chip will disregard some of the values required by the stock chip, so not having a CAT or Lambda won’t be an issue (I had neither on my last DET).

Sorry misread your post. You have a 4 pin MAF but a three pin plug. I think I may have the connectors and wiring to sort that out for you.
