Hmm, anything I should check? Besides the headers and European tune, the car is completely stock. I would think the euro tune would be more appropriate than the stock US tune since I'm running the euro hardware. Also running brand new O2s (OEM). No codes or anything and the car seems to drive fine

It looks like the wideband sensor isn't even plugged in. It looks pegged right at around 14:1-15:1 which is close to stoichiometric measures. It would be great though to see reliable AFRs, then many of us can see where gains can be made with another tune.

I never payed close attention, but on the back of the engine by the firewall is where the wire that leads to the coils is located. You can probably clip on there. They used something in that area.

Nothing to be worried about or disappointed.

The euro ECU runs lower full throttle ignition timing targets than the US software. This is done to claw back some power lost with the catted headers.

It's also much leaner as you can see.

The euro software has huge headroom but tuned in a completely different way to the US software to achieve the power as the VANOS profiles are also significantly different.

I will post up some comparison ignition and VANOS target tables for you to all see.

What you need now is the evolve euro software upgrade and the power will climb significantly and the engine will come alive.

If there is another dyno day somewhere in the mid-Atlantic or tristate areas anytime soon, then I'll repeat it.

Oh wow, I definitely stand corrected. I had no idea the Euro software was that much leaner! He can definitely use a good tune for more power

My tech told me that he should be able to locate the ignition coil wires in the DME housing so that we dont need to remove the engine cover all the time when we go dyno. As its too hot here and im happy with my tune any way i'll leave it till it gets cooler to run the car on the dyno again.

Black/purple I think, correct me if I'm wrong.
