When I bought the car, it had the 'Biro' mod on it (a piece of tube with a hole drilled in it inserted into one of the tubes from the APC valve) this caused the turbo the blow right off the scale of the boost guage. I have now sealed the hole and now it hardly blows at all but I guess that at least means that the waste gate is opening and closing and that the waste gate actuator is likewise operating....hence my concern about the knock sensor. Presumably I can try the APC valve from 9000S and at the limit the waste gate actuator (which also definately works on the old well in fact that the fuel cut-off has recently started operating) Anybody know if the anti-knock sensor can be salvaged and re-used?
