I've also had a Vanos code pop up twice.

Here at the shop now getting everything fixed so I can get back to data logging.

One last bit...the walbro 525 draws too much voltage which throws a code when I'm in boost. We changed the wire from fuel pump to ekp to a high gauge, and swapped the fuse out. I need to find someone that can reprogram the ekp to accept the high voltage and I think we should be out of the woods. I believe for our needs a 25a fuse should do the job and still be within the limits of the ekp. Other forums have found this solution to work.

I just need to get through this rough patch, and get the flash to the point where the GC Lites are living to their potential.
To eliminate code, why not run Walbro pump through relay feeding high
amperage to pump from battery and using line from ECU to activate relay. That way no high amperage signal to ECU.
