    Now that is an Awesome idea and is the best way to get miles under its belt, a fully warm engine being used is better than the warm up cool down run in that it would get using normally round here

    Ok so today i painted the bottom arms (no pics tho ) and ive decided to fit budget poly bushes in the front lower arms

    Two reasons for this

    first off the engine rebuild has wiped me out, and
    Second i do want to fit S3 hubs and bottom arms at some point, so although the camber bushes are worth it, the cheap ones for £26 for front and rear, front arm bushes will do for the time being.

    Also ive been looking at my old exhaust valves and the seats on the valve are badly pitted, so i think it was a combo of pitted valves and loads of boost and water in my meth that played its part in the shout lived MAN BOOOOOOOOOST, all in all its coming along nicely

    so today i had a plan, when i stripped Ron down i noticed my hot side outlet pipe off the turbo was going black, signs of the hot mani now its running proper boost,

    At Christmas i noticed Prawn had made a shield to protect the hose, my plan was simply, Jardo has about 12 heatshields for the cone filter, i asked if he could spare one and as normal he was only to happy to donate one to the cause, so my plan was to stop this getting worse



    so i made this



    there is a spare M6 threaded hole on the edge of the rocker cover so this is what it will look like bolted up





    should help keep the heat off the hose now

    Update time

    Rods and shells ordered and arrived today Bill you are a total legend

    so tomorrow i will be fitting the pistons to the rods and then honing the bores and refitting the pistons, im then planning to lift the head on and torque that down, then saturday evening (after Jake has gone to bed) fitting the cambelt and finishing off, hopefully have it running sunday evening i really cant wait

    one question are the bigends 50 ftlbs slacken off 3 times? for some reason i had 55ft lbs slacken off 3 times in my head



    They are even more beautiful in the flesh

    replacement front dogbone from my very good friend Jardo

    Ok so im BUZZING, ive been out in Ron, only covered 4 miles as im knackered

    Also i havent got any pics because i had dirty hands and i wanted to get it done

    Ok so i had it running for about 30 mins all was good, i thought then was the best time to stop, let it cool, check for leaks and eat

    anyway after going back to it, it cranked over and back fired it then started, so i pulled it out of our garage down the end of our road and drove up to the house, it didnt feel right and the management light came on, my heart sank, i felt that sick feeling again, so i grabbed my laptop and VCDS lead and plugged in, there were loads of codes prob there since i pushed it in the garage 2 months ago with the inlet mani off and everything disconnected, cleared them down and re checked, Cam position sensor bloody idiot i am, i connected it and then disconnected it to fit the top cam cover and forgot to reconnect it lol, so i then went out on a little drive to see how he went, i took it steady, changing gear at around 3/3500 rpm everything seems find, i then remembered what id been told about making the engine work, so i changed in to 3rd and gave it a little more throttle to make it boost, and at that moment, i remembered how fantastic Ron was before the valve issue, it boosted to around 20, only for a second as i changed gear again, but all i can say is its GREAT to have it back on the road.

    My Man cave that ive had the head in for the last 2 months is now a dinning room again

    i would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Prawn and Jardo (who have put up with me asking silly questions) Bill for sorting me out a with Rods and shell and all the advice over the phone, Dave for being a top bloke, and if it wasnt for the PMs i wouldnt have bothered changing the rods

    Thank you all for your help and advice
