  1. @Kristof Thys I googled the code and thought it was weird that "ford" kept popping up. Just am update, after I reset the code the problem didn't come back and the car was perfect. @Bibs sorry didn't check at the time. All is well now
  2. I did a couple of laps before my hot lap. Weird. Even though I didn't get a check engine light, we plugged in the code reader and got this : P123C i reset the code. Will see if it it goes into limp mode again
  3. Hi, I'm currently on track and had to go back in the pits after one hot lap. Wondering if anyone experienced the following:- At any gear past 4k rpm approx, I'm getting the 3 shift lights come up and I can't get past 4k rpm, it feels like a limiter. This happened after one hot lap. The only thing changed from last open track was that I removed the shim with the abs sensor and zip tied it. I also have the exhaust valve unplugged but I can't see how it can be related as it's been fine for the past 3+ track days with it unplugged. Any ideas? No check engine codes. Drives perfectly well under 4k rpm. 430 cup exige Thanks. Bader
  4. My failed reservoir replacement was done over a year ago. I doubt I got the revised version. I just took it for the annual service last week and wasn't informed of the recall. I'll check with them. Thanks for the heads up!
  5. Had a coolant leak within my first 1000km on my 430 cup. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the coolant reservoir.
  6. Hi. Sorry I'm out of town and can't take pictures at the moment. There was a post about this on the forum with pictures though. Here you go: Just make sure you plug the charger side as mentioned. Initially I plugged the tube side and was getting a check engine light. Once I plugged the charger side (I didn't plug the tube side as well) I didn't get any problems at all during that track day.

    @mark248am the factory button works fine on normal mode which is the only mode I use for the streets. Now that I have something to plug charger side with for track duty it literally takes less than a minute to do so and I can have the value always open on any mode. Had I not invested in the factory button I would have gone for the komotec remote option I think.
  8. I have a 430 cup with titanium exhaust. I feel like @Dan.G has mentioned that it has a higher pitch than the standard box. Which sounds better? I honestly can't tell the difference at times. In regards to the button, I've had mine post factory fitted with the exhaust valve button at the dealer (they ordered the part from the factory and had to enable it in the ECU). Downside is the button only works in normal mode. On track I'm always driving on race mode so I had to resort to plugging the vacuum line on the supercharger side. It literally takes less than a minute to do so and I don't mind it at all. Sure a button would be more convenient. However, I don't drive on the streets except with normal mode anyway and the button works perfectly at that. I wouldn't let the ability to not be able to remotely enable the exhaust be an issue as you can easily overcome this minor flaw or go to komotec for their remote operated valve control.

    I think I may have the same issue with my car. Can you take a picture of this part? Currently I don't have any plastic pieces there and I've taken the front access panel off a couple of times I suspect I may have the same issue.
  10. @razad for sharing! I've sent your specs to my dealer and they're going to attempt to do this tomorrow.
  11. Do you mind sharing your full geo settings? Also, were you able to get that on stock components?
  12. You can have them in either leather or alcantara (no additional cost) Mine are alcantara

    I just took my 430 on track and it was quite annoying not being able to hear the exhaust when most needed. Blipping the throttle for heel n toe was a silent affair and with so many noisy cars around you I had to look at my rpm gauge just to make sure I actually blipped the throttle. I tried this mod on my second session, and for some reason it threw the rpm way off. It would read 9k rpm when I'm actually at 4k. I pulled in the pits again and reattached the hose again. On my last session I decided to try it again and for some reason this time it worked perfectly. Thank you for the tip!
