    Evening all.....

    Well, she runs. Sounds much sweeter than it did with the other head as well. Started first turn of the key with no issues.

    I am cream crackered!! Going to finish up tomorrow night and get it back on it's wheels. Will road test Friday. Well nervous about road testing it after last first start. Fingers crossed....

    Here are some new photies.....



    AGU head skimmed and back.



    APY head with AGU (big port) inlet mani gasket. Outlines the difference pretty well....



    Close up of the above.



    Engine complete - and running!

    Well anyway, I'm going to enjoy my Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle and glass of red vino. My god I know how to live....

    Suggestion:
    unplug n75 electrically for your initial road tests... and take vagcom
    then once you have got a heat cycle into the engine, come back and spanner check it..

    then reconnect N75 and go logging - tentatively..
    log 001, 031,020, and 001,031,115

    bell me as usual if you need guidance

    Suggestion duly noted and will be acted upon. Planning a thousand miles of tickling anyway since all the bottom end is new.

    Interesting suggestion, Bill, if you unplug the connection to the N75, will it just remain open and effectively run on wastegate pressure only?

    Thats exactly right - it will only ever get to about 6 psi of boost... Bill doesn't trust me. Understandably. lol.

    Sounds like a great way for me to reduce my weekly spend on fuel! I might unplug it for commuting and see how i get on!

    Yeah, it a bit like that. My mate asked me a minute ago whether I was looking forward to driving it. I said yes and no all at the same time.

    Yes because I've missed it, and no because I am incredibly nervous!

    Its not out of the woods really until a few thousand down the line and is still working properly!

    Got a few final bits to do tonight, like refit the arch lining, the bumper and the plastic top (b*stard) cam belt cover - then we're good for a test run on Friday night....

    EDIT: And scan for fault codes! And refit the cam pickup sensor plug!

    Only a few bits though, shouldn't take long.

    Evening loyal followers.... lol.

    Well. A peaceful and relaxed night for me. Fired it up, all was good. Gave her a bit of a gentle rev - oil pressure warning came on. Switched off and left for a few mins, then fired back up, did the same and no problems.... Odd. Scanned with VAG COM, nothing logged for it - not many codes in general actually. Mostly what you'd expect after whipping the lump out. So god knows.

    All prepped for test run tomorrow night now, I'm nervous already.... Need to install my sticker to the back window as well in prep for the next 1000 miles....

    Bumper back on as well now. Had to trim it to fit, I'd totally forgotten we hadn't actually fitted it after the intercooler was fitted. Some light trimming required, but on OK now. She's back on her wheels now as well for the first time in nearly 3 weeks.

    So - I'm off to bed to try and get some shut eye. It's going to be a long day at work tomorrow waiting to get home!

    A few pics:



    Not seen her looking like this for a little while. Well pleased with the fit of the cooler as well! Even though it has ended up costing me about 1700.



    I am going to make this into a nice memento. Fit the gudgeon to the piston and rod and glue in position. Glue the valve into the top of the head, even though it doesn't really come out due to the nice hole it's made in the piston. Then bolt the rod to a piece of polished wood. Job done.

    I'd highly recommend it..... Makes you feel so much better having people to moan to, who actually know and care what you're on about!!

    All the brake lines? WOW what a fun job that will be..... NOT!

    Yes it is, although I'm not a supporter! It was on these plates when they came on the car. I cut the back one down, but the front one has loads of holes behind it so I couldn't. I'll get some new plates ASAP!

    I turned her off as soon as it came on. It only did it the first time I gave it a rev - and there was plenty of oil kicking about up top.

    Anyway, fired it back up and repeated the test and it didn't come up. So pass on that one. We'll see later on I guess.

    Cheers bud. Taking the middle grille out wasn't a choice - twas a lack of options! The bloody thing wouldn't fit in, I could of trimmed it but couldn't be arsed, so I just took it out. I wouldn't of out of choice to be honest.
