I have now solved the previous problem which was broken wires under the air box in the loom. It now won't start after running, so for instance you stop to re-fuel get back in the car, start the engine it won't start. You have to wait for it to drop to below 70 degrees.
Other than that it runs really well, no fault codes are showing.
