150bhp Or 155bhp???

As a few of you know I have had problems with the idle on my ti.
I managed to get the CD Rom from AJ Carter to assist my finding of the idle actuator and resolving the idle problem.
Looking at the Cd has made me a little confused.
My ti was registered in November 98 but has parts on it that suggest it is a later model!!.
I have no idle actuator on top of the throttle body but an injection module, plastic intake manifold etc.

According to the CD these parts were fitted to the facelift 155bhp models.
Please could some of you more knowledgeable folks advise me, and where do I go for the idle problem as i have no actuator???

Yours confused.

Where is your ECU?
If it is on top of the throttle body it is motronic 1.5.5 - the 155bhp version

If it is in the passenger footwell under the carpet, it is the 150bhp version

I think!

Firstly thanks for the CD.
Secondly according to the CD my "Injection Control Units" are ontop off the throttle body.
Is this another name for the ECU??.
If so I appear to have a 155bhp engine in a 150bhp body!!!.
Anyone else heard of this before?. I have checked through the service history and print outs I got with the car but there is no mention of a replacement engine.

Just spent ages tralwing through the CD manual and found that the 155bhp engine was fitted after may 1998.
Therefore please ignore the above reply and let me apologise for being so stupid.
But....the manual mentions the Idle actuator on the Motronic M1.5.5 but the parts list dosent actually show it so I'm still none the wiser as to where it is on the engine.
Anyone know??????

My S-reg (1998) 145QV was one of those cars, with the previous pre-facelifted chassis and new 155BHP engine.
