Got Richards Zetec started yesterday :thumbup: Now booked in for tune on Friday was a bit miffed that I couldnt get a PC to link upto the Megajolt as you need a PC with a serial port (blimey welcome to the 21st century)

 

Only a small clip of the engine but enjoy (hope it works)

Hey Steve, I am base just outside Watford so a few miles from yourself... to be honest the Zetec wiring wasnt that hard, took me longer to tidy up the previous wiring :rolleyes: but well worth it in the end.
