Yes. It`s a smaller bore than the servo vacuum
(I still think this is the one)
The rubber seals it and the brass ring grabs it and doesn`t let it back out (a bugger to change)

Yeah The battery's been off so that should do it I think .i also spoke to the company that remapped it and they said it would just learn the new manifold after a reset .

hm, a bit like old Dacia models. Not the handiest of the solutions, I must say. But, if you like it… it's your car

But, how's the car running?

You are still entitled to a refund even tho he has shut his business down in my opinion, your panels are clearly not fit for purpose. Kieran shutting his business down seems a little to convenient with the amount of customers who are having a lot of issues with him not delivering and shoddy quality parts.

See if you can find a body shop who will chuck in it the oven for a bake. This should encourage any trapped air that is likely to escape to come out, so you know exactly where the fibreglass needs to be addressed. Would be my first port of call anyway. It is definitely doable yourself with some patience and fibreglass filler.

Shame about the kit as was very interested in his kits for a future project. Does anyone know if the Pumaspeed kits are any good?

I think the Tuninghaus kit is the same as the Pumaspeed kit (which is UK based).

IIRC Pumaspeed are punting them for circa £1100.

Are all your panels shagged? Would it be worth perhaps just sourcing the ones you need? I recall earlier that you mentioned you asked for thicker panels for your kit. Unsure if this would make it difficult to mix and match them.
