Mark, glad you got it sorted, let us know how it drives m8!
Patrick, mine's an N reg (late '95 wide body) V6, i have Alfa code, and there wasn't any problems with that.
I didn't disconnect the battery, in fact (don't quote me on this) i might have read somewhere that it is best to leave it connected? It doesn't mention it in the installation instructions, and in any case, as i said, i had no problems.
I would have added a link here to the installation manual, but for some reason i couldn't get to it tonight (some links weren't working on the Squadra site) It's installation manual B btw.
I just took the ECU out, fitted the Squadra chip, put it back in (all using the proper static electricity precautions), and away i went! It really was as simple as that, the fiddly bit was getting into the ECU.
Just trying to put your mind at rest, as both our cars should be the same spec, Best to check with Squadra though.
I have no doubt that this is how 99.9 percent of Squadra chip installations go.
Mark, you've probably cursed too many times to mention at being that 0.01 percent or so! but this is an extremely rare occurance, and imho it just goes to show, that when something does go wrong, and with the relatively swift solution of your problem that Squadra can be trusted, and holds up the tradition of Alfa enthusiasts looking after eachother. I've no doubt at all that if anything this will actually increase the number of Alfa's with Squadra chips under the bonnet! But seriously m8, glad you're back on the road!
