Project Freeze My engine Off (SAAB B207R Supercharged)


Stupid Bollocks
i cant see the difference unless the battery was flat on the insignia and the alternator on from the astra is muffed
the insignia one worked on the astra but the power steering took a while to see the output from the exciter wire (i may have put it on the wrong terminal) the insignia uses the digital input also the astra is single wire you will get it working im sure of it they were both charging in the swap just the astra alternator on the insignia was turning the charging on and off every 3 sec

update on the astra engines all done and running

i booked the mot for the astra and the 2nd insignina for sat morning on friday so had to race the clock to get both cars ready for mot in on day

safe to say both cars passed the mot
now to run the engine in and then fine tune the map


Stupid Bollocks
so a year later and not much miles more this years mot was a fail on emissions :(
at a guess the sports cat had its day after 5 years bought a new half decent branded one

after cutting out the old cat the problem was obvious


cut,marked,welded and ready to go again retest monday :confused:

all fun and games with the astra just lately managed to get to sywell for the vboa and back
since then the elec water pump has failed tryed to move the car and the engine continued running with the keys out after pulling some relays to get it to stop the ecu had now been wiped so ive got to unbrick it fairly easy n the aem just give it 12v and hard flash it back
soon be back with some more mods on and a tiry up of the wiring loom
