This issue might only have to do with cars running FI in Denmark.

In Denmark (DK) we have to get our vehicles periodically checked every 2. year for security reasons, emission control etc.

I asked ESS before I bought the TS1 whether it would be any problem having the car running through this periodically check with the ESS TS1 kit installed.

The answer was - "no it's EU certified" and therefore it shouldn't give me any problem.

Next week I have to get the car through this periodically check AND I NEED DOCUMENTATION for the emission values and the extra added noise from the SC unit.

The rules about the added power is of another question. It's only allowed to add 20% ekstra power to your car without paying a lot of extra tax. I was awhere of that, so I'm not going to blaim ESS that the power gain is more than 20%.

Another question is; will the old vent belt still fit on the engine, if I don't want to be running the SC unit?

Danish rules sucks BIG TIME but that how it is.

If it all goes wrong, I'll have to revert the car back to as it was before! And I don't want to do that.

We are here I checked all email registers and nothing from you for a long time. Try sending directly to asbjorn.bohn@esstuning.com

The kit is engineered to pass EU3 emissions levels and you should not have a problem with local emissions testing of all systems work as designed.

We can also give you a lowered power software if required to get you within 20% of stock for Danish regulations. Will not be as fun though..
