I love the term plug and play...
You plug it in then play around for hours weeks months getting it to run right.
My 5 turbo now starts and runs. Boosts on actuator pressure but when boost solenoid goes on it and ive sorted the rad fan control its on trailer and off to a tuner.
Play suggest fun not so far lol. I change a setting and wouldnt start.

That's sounds about right, I learned that if you don't have the trigger for your coils just right you need to put four brand new aem smart coils in the bin, my fault that one.

I have to say the amount of grief I had getting my adaptronic m6000 to even start my track car was beyond a joke, the hardware inside wouldn't run a rotary so it got sent back and they charged me to "fix it".
Good luck, you will get there.
I have heard all those horror stories about Adaptronic. But when I choose my ecu, that was only good option. However, cause 1/3 of original loom is now modified and new, smarter choise would have been to choose another ecu like Link...

My coils are IGN 1A, they are the same as AEMs without sticker.
Tests shows that they should be fine.

At the moment, Im so pissed off that I dont even want to think abouy this car...

Ref the fuse going looks like there positive trigger ( as Clives are aem...?). With a specific ecu 0v negative ground. Worth checking the ecu triggers are on a and b are grounded at the ecu ov...and your ecu settings on positive trigger..?

Im trying. Put seems like my car has Christine kind of mentality too.

Also, Clive as more money and hes more patient than me

But that Adaptronics answer really confuses me. Could it be that newer software its not compatible to FC?

What there  saying is newer software may have some bugs init...older version is proven and suggesting you try that..
Like pc software they delevop new...and let the masses raise the isdues that slip through there checking.
Do as they suggest...
Also older hardware doesnt always like new software there not developed for each other put the 2 together and they fall over.
I expect my apexi if refreshed with latest software would melt lol.
Do as they suggest and report back to them.

Little update. I have been messaging Adaptronic support via Gmail. I think they are thinking that my ecus FirmWare is corrupted. I dont know.

Weird thing happenend last time I checked FW. Laptin connected to ecu immediately, and shows that it knows cars ID. FW is that older one cause they said that I should use that one. I went to check diagnostics, and then it showd that it didnt know cars ID now more

Few updates:

Adaptronic is figurin out what wrong with my ecu. They have veen great. Unfortunately dude who helps me, has to come 1,5 hour away from me to do those things that Adaptronic asks. I have been trying but Im just cant

In mean while, I have mostly been workin with Blueberry. Fixing issues that we found on shakedowns. Bastard is still smoking hard. No wonder cause about two liters of oil went thru engine, wrong way. And just because of stuck air filter, that caused it to suck oil with air into engine... Now waiting to confirm next shakedown day... Also started to make glassfibre front lights for it...

Today, just for fun, I desided to work on RE Amemiya hood vent for Vert. Immediately I remember why I hate glassfibre stuff

Went to get some bling, and my RE watch arrived from US

When at our holiday trip, nice surprise was to find FC Vert toy from automuseum
