    I cannot find the place where you plug in the performance chip i have just purchased.
    I have a 56 reg Vectra 120 cdti.
    I have removed the engine cover and straight in front of me is a plug sat on top of the engine.
    However this has 4 pins and my tuning plug has only 3 pins.
    There is another plug (out of site)underneath it that you can barely see,this has a pink retaining clip to stop it being pulled apart accidently.
    Is this it ?
    I think 10 mins to fit is OK if you know for definite which plug it is.
    I purchased the item from italy (off ebay) and so the instructions are in Italian badly translated.
    Please help!
    thanks.

    Maybe the best source for the correct answer is the seller?

    That is if, after you've heard the truth here, you still want to do that. . .

    Thanks for your opinions,however i not about to throw 90 quid in the bin, i work hard for my money.
    The last one i purchased from ebay was for my polo tdi and the increase in performance was very noticeable and the economy was improved as well.(about 5mpg).
    I think most of these gizmos do represent poor value for money especially when they're 3-400 quid.
    They are after all a plastic or aluminium box with wires attached,probably cost about 5 quid to make.
    This is why i thought i'd give this company a try,they have favourable feedback regarding increases in performance.
    Back to my original question then,where is the sensor i'm supposed to connect to?
    I take it from the lack of advice out there other than binning it that no one is sure.
    What a let down!
    Plenty of smart arses but no smart answers.

    Stop being a ****. . . . you have bought a product that plugs in somewhere and ask people who would have zero interest (or experience, in all likelihood - since it's probably overpriced garbage) where to plug the fvcker in??

    GO BACK TO THE SUPPLIER YOU MUPPET!!!

    Ask WHAT sensor (or box) it plugs into THEN ask here where that sensor/box is.

    Use your brains. If you aren't sure where they are, start a new thread and ask.

    :ROFLMAO: yeah... sometimes.
    The o/p was just being a bit of a ***** until this bit.....
    Waiting for his next threads. . . .

    How long is a piece of string? and

    What number am I thinking of?

    (the second one, obviously, is dependent on the outcome of his where is my brain? thread).
