Hi Neil,

I can’t easily follow samba threads.

Can you give me a little info about the thoughts on the 1.9 thread?

i think GW mentions this on their web page but the WBX 2.1 idle control unit would be deleted.

From their web page:

*"This first system was comprised of:"*

*......."9. New Delphi electronic control unit (ECU)—replaces NLA Digifant ECU and ICU (idle control unit)"* So, I would assume they kept that ECU in their latest design.

There is speculation in a thread on the samba Vanagon forum regarding use of the new GW on a 1.9 WBX.
