    Hi guys,

    Anyone know the best way to unscrew the top of the valve without scratching it?

    Cheers

    Al,

    You should be able to do it with your hand... May be a bit tight but should give. Try using a damp cloth over it to gtip is a bit better.

    D'oH! You could try some penetrating oil on it to see if it can work its way in and make it easier to undo!?

    Thats an idea.

    Its a stupid design when you think about it. It obviously needs to be tight, but a cylinder shape doesn't help undoing it. Should have been hexagonal or something, then two adjustable spanners could be used! :)

    It is a little. Or use small sbrews round the endge to clamp it down instead of screw one.

    Well, I do have a DV006 as well, which uses bolts to keep the two halves together - only problem is its a big chunky thing, and I like the small neatness of the 007.

    PS: Tried to PM you but your inbox is full. So I'll ask here...do you know what the standard boost pressure should be for the S3 225? In PSI.

    I've ordered the spring tuning kit from forge you see, so I'll be playing around with the different springs soon.

    Cheers

    Cheers Andy. Good idea.
     
  13. What colour spring should be used with a remapped S3?
    (could be useful if I can remember where I put them!)

    Rubber gloves worked. Thing is, it already has a green spring in. So didn't really need the DV tuning kit with extra springs. Ah well only a tenner.

    At least yours was tight AL, mine kept on bloody unscrewing itself, meaing a drop off in boost. I ended up putting a bit of locktight on the thread in the end.

    I'll have to keep an eye on it then now I've undone it. Thanks for letting me know Paul.
