    Hi Guys,

    Not a very informative post. Im just quite excited that my car is working at 110% once again!! After having hesitation problems over the last few months and it seemed like nothing was helping. So finally i got around to fitting an uprated fuel pump.. My god! What a difference! I think the OE fuel pump was really on its way out and im glad i changed it when i did as it sounds like the bearing had gone in it...certainly play in the shaft when you shook it!! Car is actually better than it has ever been so by the looks of things, the pump was always a weak point. Its pulling MUCH harder for MUCh longer now, and coming on boost a good 700rpm sooner too (also had a long term boost leak i only just managed to track down!). So its back! Like a transformed car once again and i've got an ear to ear smile /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/woohoo.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    For the time being just an S3 pump. Was only £30 from a scrappy so was worth a shot. Will get a Walbro pump in time.

    Unfortunately no track action for me this time. There are still some things that need to be done/changed before i take it back onto the track.

    Its been fitted for over a year now. Very poor i know! lol
    I've got wheel speed sensors to fit as the OE ones are doing some weird sh*t and basically not reporting the speeds correctly so having to fit secondary sensors. Going to fit the front 2 to pick up the driveshaft bolts and the rear 2 to pick up the disc bolts. I need to build a small 12v>5v power supply and fabricate brackets for the sensors. Once thats done, the setup will take 20mins
