    Only a really minor update.

    Clutch is all fixed and working nicely.

    Haldex blue now installed. Really enjoying this.

    And just got in from installing the VW relay to the hazard switch so now have one touch 3 blink indicators. Nice little mod!

    No real updates yet.
    Been enjoying the car for a short while before it gets pulled apart.

    Planning on getting it in for engine work in the beginning to middle of March.

    I did pick up some bits to experiment with whilst getting it mapped:

    Ramair had a sale on and thought it would be worth a try. I like the look of it so am hoping it performs as well or better than the J&R one I'm currently running.
    First impressions are good. Quality is top notch and fit is perfect.

    You got a link for the one you bought? Weird how they give you a replacement MAF housing.

    Sorry Dani_B19. Think at slight crossed communications. The MAF didn't come with the filter. It's something separate I've picked up to play with / compare.

    Haha yeah, sorry. So what came with the filter? The reason I ask is because I want a velocity style setup, I have a s2000 filter but I wa t a reusable alternative.

    Just the filter on its own. Think it was about £20 delivered. Don't know how well it will perform compared to the concertina type.

    The latest run of bad luck had been clouds if blue smoke billowing from the exhaust and a ripped apart exhaust.

    Firstly the smoke. To cut a mini saga down. I think it has just been a gulp back from the oil catch can (that I had let get a little too full) I have emptied it and cleaned breather pipes and after a short run all of the dreaded smoke has cleared. There was no loss of power oil or water so seems the likely cause.

    The exhaust was just a bit of poxy luck. I have been loaned another car while mine is getting the engine build done. Whilst swapping them and reversing mine into the yard my exhaust clamp made contact with the gate securing point and separated. Also ripping securing point up.
    Gate has been re secured and car left sounding like a tractor on steroids. (Well it adds to the security of it) and I will have to go back in the next week to sort my exhaust.

    That was all last month so hoping that it's all of the crappy luck out of the way and March will be the month of the build.

    I did say it was gonna get messy.

    g60leigh build thread. it's gonna get messy

    The build has begun.



    Top end all removed and stripped









    Downpipe is off and will be sent off to be flowed then re-wrapped


    Will also get manifold flowed and welds reinforced too.




    On a worrying note there is a lot of metal filings on the sump plug.



    Hoping its nothing to major and something we are changing in the build anyway.

    The bbs wheels are now finished and waiting for the car.


    Also added some red bbs decals to the rim and gen bbs dust caps since pic.

    Found a bargain auto dim mirror too so another job for the never ending list.

    Currently in the turmoil stage.
    Block needs taking out, taken to machine shop and new oversized forged pistons need acquiring.

    As usual the ASN guys have stepped up and helped me loads with info. 👍

    g60leigh build thread. it's gonna get messy

    The block is out, ready to be taken to get rebored next week.





    Also got a new complication. The new LUK dual mass fitted before Christmas is in a bad way

    http://s103.photobucket.com/user/g60...dwzsx.mp4.html

    Got to go see euro car parts on Monday and see how well they handle warranty claims 😒

    Suddenly I have turned religious and I am praying for no more set backs. 🙏

    On a lighter slightly off track note. I found these the other day and want to share them.
    My old Wolfsburg edition LHD Golf G60








    Hoping my next post will be one full of progress.

    at the end of the day poor Leigh has trusted garages to do work on his car and TBH they have ripped him off and had his eyes out. so far the car has been held together with luck nothing was tight and the things that were tight were far too tight. all inlet/exhaust mani bolts were loose, gear box bolts were loose plus others... a garage has filled the power steering fluid up with red stuff we all know its supposed to be green mineral fluid.

    All ways give a quick check on your car to see if work is finished properly on your car even if its just seeing if the bolts/nuts are tight. some people are just out to make money off people with out doing a proper job resulting in people like Leigh spending more than he had to.

    but this time round it will be put back together correctly all nice and tight, hopefully a lot cleaner than when we started. (lots of leaks)

    me and my mate will have it back together in no time once the block is back from the machine shop. hopefully no more things will creep up resulting in me ringing Leigh again to say this his cars a scrapper

    and the lack of photos in leigh's build is because im not the best with a camera and always forget to take photos lol

    Engine block, pistons and rods have all been dropped off at machine shop.

    New choice time- what colour should they paint the block?

    Just saw a load of bits in the classified thread and thought you must have been breaking the car!

    I assume it will be stripped out as the door cards etc. are up for sale?

    No not breaking mate. Just trying to free up some cash selling off my old and spare parts.

    Not stripping it out either. I just happen to have a spare set of rear door cards lol.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1397066069.561585.jpg

    Any ideas how / where this fits??? Lol.
    From IE web page:

    OVERVIEW

    A support bracket for the turbocharger is built because the manifold is placed a good distance from the engine. During heavy use the turbo will be very hot and yield stress on the steel which can begin to sag under the weight of the turbo. Using a bracket is a desirable solution to greatly reduce the bending loads on the manifold and thus the stresses which can prevent cracks developing in the manifold during normal use. Precision laser cut from stainless steel and attaches to the compressor housing. For use with Garrett T3, GT and KKK turbos.

    What you have there is an expensive ornament

    Its a universal one designed to bolt to the compressor cover (using its bolts) and is more for larger framed turbos such as GT30's etc... next to useless on a K04 and in all honesty next to useless on anything... support brackets in this context sound like a good idea but for most applications do more harm than good as the turbos this is designed for sit on tubular manifolds that move... alot!... when hot and adds stress to the components... worse case it could enhance failure of parts such as the manifold or turbo fixings..

    The only support bracket needed in this context is the OE K04 one that comes off the block and bolts through the bottom of the turbo hotside...

    Idea shamelessly stolen from Tuffty's thread.
    May even give this a clean and paint too 👍

    With just a little luck the flywheel will arrive today and the block with 83mm rebore / pistons, IE rods and ACL bearings will be ready for me to collect tomorrow and get back to Coatesy.

    Got a call from Erimus (the machine shop) at 9 this morning say he had been ill this week and just come back in. Therefore my block won't be ready until Monday.
    Gutted !!

    Did get these boring bits. But as they were cheap seemed rude not to.

    Now it's going to be Tuesday next week. Seems the machinist has had to have eye surgery and will be off all this week. I hope they give me some discount for the delay 😖

    At last a chance to right a progress post.

    Had a massive run if issues with the machine shop. (Avoid Erimus Engines in Thornaby at all costs!) which culminated in a bit of a scuffle and police called as I wouldn't pay they full invoice due to their mess ups and them trying to break into my car to get block out and then blocking me in.

    Now all the parts are back in the capable hands of Roy and Coatesy things are starting to come together.

    Pics as proof.

    Latest report was that the sump is also now all on and buttoned up.

    Happy Days!

    Good progress mate! Im working on mine this evening, just got to swap the gearbox, dmf, clutch etc over from old engine.
    Your story with the engineering company sounds like something off 'Lizard Lick Towing'
    Glad its in safe hands now though.

    Also have another part for the 'to do later' pile.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1398956296.750523.jpg

    Mine all work but have a line of dead pixels every now and then which bugs the hell out of me.
    The plan is to fit these. If pixels are all ok as they are from a low miler they will stay and I will sell on my old ones. If not they will be temporary ones while mine get sent off to be fixed.

    Does anyone know if I'm right in thinking it will show my correct mileage as that's stored within the ecu?

    We are nearly there made good progress last night. Lizard Lick towing is a program on 'Dave' which is rather entertaining and your story about your scuffle at the engine place reminded me of it. Here is a trailer.
