Hi all,

New member 'Wibble' - My first name is Andy and I'm from London.

I'm a software developer by profession so being a geek I am currently looking for some tips on ecu tuning for my 2008 Kia proceed 2.0 crdi and pointers on the best software/hardware to use.

I'm currently trying to get to grips with winols and using a galletto cable to read the ecu but this is all new to me so will be reading many threads for hints and tips.

Just a bit of history on my car in case anybody is interested..
She's an 08 registered pro_ceed sport, had her since she was 6 months old and committed the crime of only using her for short commutes to the station and back for her first 8 years (yes I know - exactly the kind of journey that you should not use a turbo diesel for). Recently I started a new job so get to give the old girl a run up and down the motorway - 50 miles a day (yup I have doubled her recorded mileage in the last year). I've had a few problems with the old girl, mostly self inflicted from the short stop start part of her life - p0299 error - split vacuum house to the turbo actuator which never threw an error at city driving speeds but as soon as on the motorway was very noticeable. Sorted that and blew many cobwebs (and soot) out of the exhaust but am now getting p0401 errors (egr insufficient flow). Thinking the egr is probably clogged due to the short journeys and realising that whoever designed this engine was a masochist (very hard to get to the egr valve and cooler in order to remove/inspect/clean) I decided to give it a few blasts of egr cleaning spray. The car has less than 27,000 miles on the clock in her 10 years of existence so I truly doubt the egr can be blocked however my attempts at cleaning so for are not working and I still get he p0401 error. So here I am, looking for a way to keep the egr closed and the ecu to ignore any flow errors from it....

TLDR - Hi I'm Andy, my car is in pain!
