  1. The 0x6CE5 calibration is from a S4S chip. There probably is a little benefit changing to a later S4S calibration but it is more significant to note that no S4S calibration is particularly suited to the SE, or S4, due to the VE tables being incorrect due to the different sized inlet valves and turbocharger.
  2. Ignore what I said above about determining a closed throttle state, upon closer inspection that bit of code looks to be associated with BLM cell selection.
  3. The Service Notes state the TPS should be adjusted to give 0.66 to 0.70 volts when closed but in the typical data and fault finding sections it states 0.45 to 0.70 volts. I aim for about the middle of the latter voltage range. In determining whether the throttle is closed, the ECU uses 4 no. TPS % values (0.8%, 0.4%, 1.2% and 0.4% again). The particular value to use is selected according the vehicle speed (3 mph) and the state of a conditional flag. A further percentage (3.5%) is added to the selected value if the throttle jack is in operation. The percentages should avoid any TPS jitter in normal operation. All example values are taken from the stock SE code.
  4. The oil flow through the single oil cooler radiator with both connections at the bottom does not matter. You may want to keep the flow in the same direction as it currently is to avoid backflushing any accumulated debris in the cooler.
  5. There is not enough material on the OE gasket to figure out what the manufacturers name is but it is 0.8 mm thick if that helps.
  6. SJ's do have their own alternative to A907E6251F for 84 pence. Their postage will cost you more
  7. It could be a problem with the UJ's. Is there excessive free play?
  8. The door lock motor will not move by hand if it is in its deadlocked position (try too much force and you will break the 'sledge' and/or its retaining latch). Have you tried applying power directly to the motor to check if it is faulty?
  9. I like to use double wire hose clamps on those large barb connectors with a loop either side of a barb.
  10. The specification for the S300 rear wheel camber is 1 degree +/- 0.1 degree (i.e. 1 degree +/- 6 minutes). The camber offset can be calculated very simply using the equation offset = diameter * sin (θ) where θ (theta) is the angle in degrees.
  11. Not sure if it is the same for Vista but under XP, with the cable connected, go to Settings -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager -> Ports (COM & LPT) and you should see the COM port number being used by the cable. Set Freescan to that COM port number under the 'Control' tab in Freescan.
  12. Are all the air hoses after the turbocharger still fitted correctly and undamaged?
  13. Try TunerPro, it has the option to test for a valid cable.
