    Hi Macca,
    Just wanted to say thanks for your work and sharing it.
    Great that you've included a little txt file in there giving basic directions and warnings.

    Going to flash for the 3 port over the next few days and will let you guys know how it goes.

    As Macca said, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

        With a 3 port watch for boost spikes in higher gears around 2500-4000rpm you can see in the maps where the WGDC has to be dropped off to correct it

          Might get a group flash happening, as other colt owners might want a reflash too.
          Will be easier to get everything done on the 1 day. But please note.
          I will not be changing anything from Macca's flash. This has been used on numerous cars.

            I'll be logging my drives so hopefully I won't get such boost spikes. Does this occur in some cars and not in others?

            Also, with the Rev Limit, I notice its been decreased in the tuned file. Is there any reason for this?

              Alright dude that's a good idea, would love to meet some peeps from here. I'm going to get on to Runuts sometime in the next week or 2 and order a turbo smart plumb back, kn panel filter and a 3 port. Might as well start with a few small mods.

                If your running a 3 port boost maps will be needed to be changed in 90% of cases it all depends on intake mods

                Boost spike again is depend on boost maps which change with intake mods

                I perfer the lower limit, the engines are not the best on revs and large boost

                  Oh okay, sounds like stylz doesn't wanna change anything so it might be a no go for me for your tune. I want a 3 port.

                    I'm not confident in myself to tune 3 ports yet. I can flash it for you if you want. But when it comes to tweaks then I need time to work it out on my own car before I make changes on someone elses. Its up to you really if you want to run the 3 port flash. Or I can flash for your stock 2 port.

                    Macca has run this flash on multiple cars though, and I haven't heard of any issues with Macca's flash.

                        Also, The car doesn't log boost, so you will need a boost gauge. I used to use an old turbo smart mechanical, and a really long hose and pass it through the passenger window haha.

                          LOL, that's one way to do it. I have a boost gauge on my steering wheel and Apexi unit. Love the apexi unit as its VERY accurate and gives a reading of 2 decimal places in Bar. eg 1.21bar etc.

                          Just ran Macca's flash. Seems to work better than my previous flash. Tried running 3 port but I don't think I connected it properly and over boosted to 1.38 bar.
                          Will have to check it out again later when I have the time.

                          Flash works really well with my EBC and next to no knock counts. I did slight tweaks to the throttle maps though so its to my liking.
