Hey Dave,

My router is an outdoor one, so im sure a good thunder stome will fry it too lol.

I took a few cover off to see where that hose goes, it goes from the MAF to the rail over the injectors (image below). I taped it up for now with electrical tape and the car is running a bit smoother now, but will replace it soon.

I do have a few problems with the OBD2 adapter, it doesnt always connect. But when it does it works fine. Sometimes I have to restart the app on teh phone to get it to connect to the ECU. I havent actually unplugged it in a few days, just leave it sitting there, its great for when the misses says things like 'I know your speeding in that car' and you can show her your journey log lol. Altho I did open her up a bit this evening. Brought her up to 100mph, but with the bad bushings and front wheel needing balancing, it wasnt exactly a smooth ride.

I cant wait for my mech to take a look at it, he would be better at finding the cooling issue than I would. He told me that he recently hired a guy who is a whiz with BMW and Audi, and is going to put him on my car and see if he can sort out the cooling issue.
