Hmmm Techno Phobia Selespeed Problems

Posted this yesterday (I think).
But haven't received a response? - where on this site should I look I am a 'dumbo' but car has been off the road for months now and need some serious help!
I'll repeat the story: Cooked my 156 selespeed, replaced head and fires up fine. BUT after 5-10 mins when engine warms up it the revs 'hunt'/'surge' up & down.
Obviously cannot to be driven.My inde mechanic and I are going MAD...therfore went to dealer for diagnostics check - shows nothing. They could only suggest trial and error costing **** knows!!
Done air intake smoke test all OK.

Please help...e-mail me on too please. and if you have responded before sorry - MARK

If it were me, I'd opt to go for a electronic diagnostics experts opinion. One who perhaps uses the full Pico oscilloscope. or similar, for an in depth diagnosis.:

Re: Techno Phobia Selespeed Problems

has nothing to do with Selespeed... only makes the reputation even worse (if that is possible) you cooked your engine and now the ECU is knackered I'm afraid.
