    Default question for 205 gti6 owners - diagnostics

    when you guys had the wiring done, did you get an OBD port fitted to the car? if not, how do you go about engine diagnostics?

    Nothing should ever go wrong with it! Best part about the conversion. Ha.

    If on the odd chance something does go wrong just replace all the sensors, coil packs and the ICV. Sorted.

    Wouldn't it just log a whole heap of irrelevant codes due to it not being in the 306 anymore?

    Sorry for not being helpful.
