And we hit 16.7 psi vs 17 target in third, in traffic.

So hopefully the cold start EPC does not re-emerge

In summary, this is why I should read more here rather than venturing forth, using YouTube videos.

Convinced myself I could adjust with the engine off, so somehow I sent the voltage into another country, using bad data with the engine off.

Thanks again guys

Can you elaborate on what exactly you did to be able to ajust the voltage in spec?
Hi, post 154 on this thread (by perceivedshift) has a link to a thread he created that helped me alot). Reading this entire thread helped as well.

My car requires engine running for adjustment, which is difficult to do given the heat from the turbo. I did it from underneath the car, used some wet potholders with steel zipties around the area and brought a spray bottle full of water under the car with me. Brought my phone with obd11 ready under the car.
