    Im also addicted to the overrun burbles and crakles, I wouldn't worry to much mine does it all the time :muttley:

    Your concern should be if there is one, is all the modifications you've had. Main reason I don't piss about with the car. Sod's law and all that :thumbsup:

    I'm sure evolve will offer some advice. Unsure on the correct use of thread title .

    Just to make things clear Evolve are an amazing company and I regret not going to them in the first place . Their service and explanation of everything was spot on and I don’t have a single complaint towards them .They have trialled and tested their map on cars around the world so I feel like there is no one better to get the car mapped from . I did ask them about any possible downsides of the over run and they said it’s just valve timing adjustments and the only potential damage is to the primary cats which I do not have .

    This happened on Friday evening so I have not had the chance to ring them yet . I’m simply telling you the full story and was just wondering if anyone else has noticed anything similar with their cars . Like a few of you have said , I’m sure it’s just one of the sensors noticing the large amount of pops that occurred at that time that simply put the engine into safety mode .

    If you read my post properly then you can see that AMD would not offer a few options after I had the map done as they have not done them before to a S65 engine . Therefore that is the reason I went to Evolve as they were more than happy to do the over run mod as long as the car has a primary decat .


    Gintani is an American company who also offer a over run map what sounds cringe worthy in my opinion . I couldn’t find problems from people who have that map which surprises me as they are endless and must burn a lot of fuel .Makes me think I was just unlucky with the downshift . Link is below ....

    The gintani overrun sounds horrible - sounds like a fart.

    Look forward to your video, I’m looking to get it done

    My first impression when seeing the title that Evolve is at some sort of trouble!
    Fair enough OP explained everything and no issues here with Evolve.
    May be try to change title as it may scare few people ...

    Okay I will go out with the go pro in the next week or so to get some footage of the motor .

    I would be happy to change the title for those people that are easily offended but unfortunately there is no option to do so :(

    Nothing up with the title. People projecting their own view onto it.

    Does kind of read like his car has been damaged because of it

    I opened the thread thinking oh I wonder what happened... then find out nothing happened.

    lol so "potential" now means "has happened" not "might happen" just like when people say "literally" these days they mean what I'm about to say never happened ;)
