hi guys and girls.

my friend steve has just bought this car. he brought it to me because its running 1.9 bar of boost.!!!!!

i dont beleve it is safe to run this boost on the basis there is no history showing any work done on the car that in corporates internals.

steve bought it from a guy in wales. but it has an mlr badge on it.

so does anybody no any history on this car and if so can you help unravel the mysters of whats been done to it.

ps he loves the car!!! and soon to be an mlr member.:smthumbup

If it hasnt had rods fitted then i wouldnt be running a 7 with 1.9bar of boost, they are renowned for bending rods.

i no bud. he brought it to me so i could turn boost down. but i have never used a apexi avcr boost controller. only profec bs.. and the apexi seems to be that you need to be a computer man to understand lol lol.

i was hopping that somebody would have some info to tell steve ie(who ever owned it being an mlr member before might no what they did to it?)

On the AVCR, press 'prev' a few times until you get to the 'main' screen. Then drop down to 'setting' and press 'left' on the directional arrows. This should then read 'off'. Then go back up to 'monitor' and pres 'next' until you get back to the screen you started on. This way you'll only run actuator pressure so around 0.75bar. It won't be much fun, but it will be enough for you to get to a tuner and get it set properly.

There are a few guides on here as to how to set them, but I'd see a man in the know.

There used to be a evo7 in that colour in bristol that my mate owned for a while but all the bottom of the bumpers and side skirts were painted silver but he then had them resprayed blue again.
That was a quick e7 and had standalone ecu with anti lag etc set up on it.
Not sure what the reg was though.
