Just to add to this as everytime I read whats going on their is a lot of opinions and bits of info and mis confusion ..
If the guy who currently has the Neo gets back in touch and sells it for sensible money, that is now apparently every bit from the car that the engine came from.. So it "should" run just fine.
If how ever by some random chance I have managed to pop the ECU then im a feckin dumb ass and shouldnt be touching things.
Even if I hand my ECU to someone to test and confirm it works.. It still wont work on a standard wiring because its been mapped for the dodgy wiring.. So my next option is to send the ECU off for "Standard" map... Well that would be sweet if the nearest decent spot for tuning was on my doorstep and I didnt have to drive it with a guessed map..
I dont have a trailer to pop the car on and on my licence unfortunatly I missed out on the trailer part by a couple of months.. So I would have to hire trailer and driver...
So to get to Bob.. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/dir/Pembroke+Ct,+Kendal+LA9+5JA,+UK/The+Vintners,+Southend-on-Sea+SS2+5RZ,+UKemail@example.com,-3.2754083,7z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x487c8de26e4f699f:0x6c09ede224b236f0!2m2!1d-2.7524426!2d54.3161704!1m5!1m1!1s0x47d8d8fd7964992b:0x960f01659bca3437!2m2!1d0.7104826!2d51.5632003!
it isnt just a quick trip down the road... The cost of fuel alone im into a small fortune if I drive my car down and probaly more if I hire a trailer and driver for a couple of days.
So If I cant get this pain in the rectum Neo then my option comes to get the Power FC tested.. If its confirmed working then it becomes a case of planning a trip to Bob on standard ECU, MAF and injectors and get it mapped up.
As I say the Neo is currently and unfortunatly my personal best option. unless soemone who knows what they are doing happens to have a hand controller that will fit my ECU and they are up for a day of setting up.. Nudge Nudge wink wink
For future reference to myself when I negotiate a fully running engine and ancilarys make dam sure I get all the f'in bits required!
On a plus side I dont think I could learn any other way than the hard way.. The mother of necesatiy and all that
So tonight its off with the sump, a de rust a prime and re paint and pop it back on to fix my leaky gasket. Happy days.
