So had some issues with the clutch on the car and she developed a sputter under boost. Got a friend to drop her of at the workshop as I was going to be away for work. Being updated along the way it was found the the flywheel on the car had given up and needed to be replaced. After the flywheel was replaced, they found that the pucks on the initial clutch were too thick as they had been made for the old flywheel which had already been worn. So a new clutch had to be made. Only after that could the sputter be diagnosed.
So everything has now been sorted out and I mot my car back last night. New clutch and flywheel have been fitted but I need to get used to it again. Bite is a bit more sudden now. Gears are much easier as well.
Overall I'm really quite happy with were the car is at the moment. There's still a lot more to be had from the setup as she is tuned on a daily map at the moment (1.4bar peak from what I saw on the guage) and making 337whp and 402nm. I think the power she is making at the moment is enough to keep me happy for a while.
Plan for after my wedding/next year:
- Electronic boost controller
- Upgraded fuel pump (if required to reach my goal of 400whp)
- Respray the front end of the car
- New headlamps / restore
- Move meth pump and bottle
Plan for this weekend:
- Give her a nice bath
- Clean up the engine bay
- Fix glove box lid (again)
- Fix door pads (peeling leather inserts and broken storage compartment lid)
- Move turbo timer/boost guage to above drivers side vent
- Move wmi controller
Looks like going to be a long weekend lol
