    Diaphram split

    No, the missus isn't up the duff. LOL!!!

    I think the diaphram in my diverter valve has split. I get a fluttering noise when under boost. It is the original Bosch item, but is that the symtoms of a dodgy DV? I'd just like to confirm before I rush out to buy a Forge item.

    Cheers

    Worked out what the prob was. One of the manifold to turbo bolts had come loose. Looks like I didn't put enough thread lock on it when I did it up.

    Cheers

    There are quite a few MK2's with S3 engines on the clubgti forum, all of which are very nice and VERY fast!!

    There was quite a few Mk2 Golfs with the 1.8T engine at the ClubGti megameet earlier this month. Not sure if they were the S3 unit or not though.

    Re: Diaphram split

    For the few of you that asked so nicely.....here are some pics.

    I would just like to say that the car isn't finished yet, not by a long shot. It still needs things like a drivers airbag and I've still got to customise some S3 door cards to fit as well. But I wanted to get it on the road so I could start de-bugging any mechanical problems.

    I was/am going for a sort of OE look to the car, with a few sacrifices to performance and handling etc. hence the air filter, the bespoke 3" single silncer exhaust system, strut brace and the like, but I didn't want to make it look too obvious out on the road. I still have te original 15" BBSs for the car and they'll be used to give it a real OE/sleeper look.

    Any way, here you go:

    Front
    Rear
    Interior - Drivers side
    Interior - Passengers side
    Fully working clocks
