odd part 001-548-26-41 boxes in your picture.  EPC only shows used on 126, 107, 123 all japan versions.

can you post picture of exhaust temp signal on your dash?  never heard of that either.

Do you have your data card with option codes?  maybe something on there explains it.

I will post a picture tomorrow of the dash. I have a Japan version.

Replaced flex discs yesterday and the prop shaft bearing. It took about 2 hours. Some trouble disconnecting the prop shaft at the middle, but it came loose after some struggling 😊 flex discs wasnt that bad, but cracked several places. The bearing on prop shaft was worse than I thought. It was teared apart.
Also got my new wheels. Remotec 16x8.

New center bearing will greatly reduce vibrations!  make sure you put the two shaft back together exactly at they were originally, or you will have to the the entire shaft balanced.

Yes it did. There is some vibrations now also, but it depends on the speed im driving in. I did not mark the shaft, so i guess its not at the same place.
