My car has been in today for new turbo and cams.
After fitting, couldn't be mapped properly due to a noisy hydraulic lifter, making the ecu think its detecting knock.
As a result, 16 new lifters to be fitted at £25 (+VAt) each plus labour before the car can finally be mapped.
Anybody come across this before?

Worth fixing the lifters, hope it gets rid of your false knock. If it doesn't, there is nothing you can do about it with Ecutek and you'd have to use Ecuflash (knock control is adjustable in Ecuflash, not in Ecutek) or a standalone ECU to get your engine to run properly.

To be honest it did sound like it was a bit 'tappy' before the new cams.
The cams fitted are Piper 272 'Mr spec' but with 11.0mm of lift instead of 10.8mm.
They were recommended by my tuner.
He has also said that there are a cheaper after market lifters available but with the more aggressive cams fitted they wouldn't last long.

@rob_indigo - how much should I be looking at for genuine mitsubishi lifters?

Cheers lads, Dan.

I hope thats not true because otherwise I may as well bend over and supply the vaseline.
I'm being charged £460 including VAT for the lifters not including labour.

If you don't want to do the job yourself. Go to Matt at TRL. He's well within distance of warrington.
I know he is. My cars been in for 3 days and I couldn't be arsed driving to Halifax to drop it off and then pick it up 3 days later.
To complete the story, its been in for the 45k service (cam belt) and as I was feeling flush I got a IX turbo and the cams. Its also had Pf front discs GRP N rear discs, XP8 all round and braided lines (+refresh brake fluid).

Any suggestions?

If he's ordered the Mitsubishi parts and thats what they cost, then it's a question to ask.
If Indigo are selling the cheap stuff he advised me to avoid then fair play.
