It 12v corded so you just hook it up to the battery or I think it might have come with a cig lighter plug, brilliant tool it works by building up the rpm abit and then it hits the bolt at speed and there's no real kick off it on your wrist either
If it doesn't fit,
force it,
If it breaks,
It needed replacing anyway :thumbs:

Juust looked them up and they are really cheap too.

Belt changed and new ecu is chipped, it's rapid but it's obviously chip for a certain set up which I don't have and it's just running way rich and spraying fuel out the exhaust, went through half a tank in 2 days of moderate milage so it's parked up again and old ecu being sent to Dublin to a crowd that fix ecus and hopefully be sorted quickly [emoji38]

Wasn't chipped by me, I found an old sport with the engine out so I took the ecu immobiliser and key chip thinking it would save time and money [emoji38] I'm still Tring to track down whoever bought the engine to find out the specs but no luck, and I'm fairly certain it was cammed with bigger injectors and I'm not ready to fit cams to mine yet, need to run it for another while so I know it won't fail when I up the power

And they'll pay big money I'd they want it [emoji38] because I'd imagine there engine is running like poo

Yeah a general chip for a corsa just raises the limiter but this feels like it was created for a certain set up on a dyno, most would just call it a map but I'm stuck up and know you can't map the standard chip so a custom chip needs made [emoji38]

Not really an update but got the ecu back but havnt fitted it yet because they said it looked like a wiring fault that blew the ecu so still going through the wiring

Was also having a play with the superphoto app on old pics and came across this pic
Image it's both my cars but dated back in 2012 before I owned it, oh how much I've ruined it [emoji38]

This was my favourite from the app
