did you change the cam angle sensor or the crank angle sensor by mistake there is 2 on VR just making sure you changed the right one.

Maybe try another ECU - they're cheap as dirt nowdays...well, cheaper than a CAS. Or try unplugging the ECU and leave overnight. Is the engine is running poorly or using heaps of juice?

If plugs and leads or OK I'd drive it and not look for trouble. 220k for half a tank is good. Keep your eye open for another ECU...they go for a little as $10. With what you've replaced already you don't have many options left. Frustrating I know.

i will get the ecu and some other good bits off the young guy around the corner from me. he smashed his vr and i got the extractors and full 2 1/2" system off it for $100. i starting to think about leaving the error code there as the car is going well.
