Aww cecil you beat me to it lol.
Come on bill you know you love GB .
I'm putting my money on both ;P
Lol I only meant the mani, I've not been keeping up with the gb.
Tuffty I heard it was absolute pig, so thanks man, I've had words with the car and told it not to be such a beeitch
Very organised but very very keen lol
feck mani GB's - lol - Mani @ this stage is a one off... until I recover from the trauma of making this one, which based on time alone to make would be >£1000 item, clearly not something salable. I will chalk it up to being a challenging engineering exercise.
everything about working with head in situ on S3's is a complete ****. Cyl head off is the far more efficient way of doing this.
My forearms are also scraped and bruised to ****.. Not enjoy the process I have to say.
just driveshaft to bolt back on and turbo support bolt, connect lambda electrically.. bung some fluids back in it and turn the key.. later today. Hoping to hell I can access the turbo support bolt now I put the sodding DP back on.. with its inaccessible 1 nut/stud which caused me a lot of pain yesterday. got home just before 6 last night, flopped in the chair, watched recorded F1 and promptly fell asleep. Knackered!
Love you man! I seriously appreciate the effort dude!
If its gonna be running later I might pop over and see the old girl.
I think Dane should do a days work for you Bill free of charge and he's not allowed to leave until his forearms look like thay've been through a blender
If he wants anything actually working at the end of the day then thats not a good idea, that would be one hard earned reputation down the drain! lol
Tea duty for the day?
If I can help out I'm always happy to
I am paying Bill you know... :thumbsup:
Yeah but I think you owe him and Tuffty some blood, sweat and tears by the sounds of it
yikes feels like I could be getting bullied into doing something no man ever wants to do... lol
You are already driving a micra ;P
"Bring out the gimp"
But fair. :thumbsup:
I am sure Bill would just be grateful of a cup of tea to be honest Neil lol...
Are you super bored today dude? lol
Yeah every day
I've turned into a troll, spamming threads with ****e posts........ bit like you do
I'm equally guilty.
Moi?! I've been very good thank you very much, Ive only helped derail recently, as opposed to actually starting the derailing process... lol
should be running yea..
got to rework wellys decat pipe tho, remove it again... as the 2nd lambda bung is completely fecked, seized, cross threaded the lot.. going to have to remove the nicely sealed decat pipe and weld in a new boss. one step fwds, one step backwards (as usual.. cars eh!)
Maybe we've swapped rolls? I'm slowly catching up with Welly's post count and now I know how he has so many
Where abouts is that lambda bung?
Tut tut welly. Now youl have to be tea boy with Dane. Haha
Just when you think the hard works finished, I'll put the kettle on when I get there!
not anything to do with you... its just how it is, corroded, maybe crossed from 1st install, who knows??!
Badger - fueled by cups of tea, copious amounts
in the decat pipe
Thanks Bill. I thought Welly's car only had 1 lambda being an onlder engine unlike the BAM which have a pre and post cat sensor?
Yep, thats correct. Bill knows this all to well as without wideband lambda, it's a ***** to map.
Weird. A pain it the **** though.
It's all about the flow (of tea).... Badger 5 Mantra.
So you've just bunged the hole for where the post cat sensor should go?
How easy is it to map a car that has a decat and a post cat sensor, because the sensor wont like it?
AFAIK, the second lambda has no real control on fuelling - it is there so the ECU knows how efficient the CAT is.
Bill will be able to answer this much better than me...
IT's strange because on my previous map the post cat sensor was telling VCDS that the cats were damaged and I can only assume this was where the poor map was underfueling! The Revo has sorted any abnormalities.
Yeah, in all fairness, that map that was on there wasn't the best. In fact it was very lean IIRC.
It was as lean as a baked bean!
Dane sorry for another hi-jack.
I'll get it back on track by asking where you're mounting your WMI system?
Separate names with a comma.
