    Wondered if that was your manifold being melted together, pleased to see it is :happy:

    Mk1 TT 225 track day car, 0-60 3.67s

    Great write up as usual Karl. Thanks for sharing this info, I'd like to look into DSG at some point in the future and expect I'll be revisiting your thread frequently when the time comes!

    They've come up really nicely, particularly given the state they were in before. Good stuff!

    Mk1 TT 225 track day car, 0-60 3.67s

    Watching with a keen interest, Karl. It'll be a while before I'm in a position to upgrade the box on my TT but the thought of fitting a DSG setup appeals, so your detailed write up is very much appreciated!

    Ignitron ECU

    If you're on Win10 then it may be due to the security settings which as default don't allow unsigned drivers. I've just had the same issue installing the software on a new laptop - solution copypasta'd from https://acer.co/2QIHgqe In other iECU news, I finally got round to adding in the fuel...

    What sort of ballpark torque do the VR6 rods tend to take? Not sure if the rods themselves are much different to those fitted to the 1.8t (obviously there are 50% more of them and things should be a smidge smoother). Glad to hear you've sorted a refund on the dodgy box. PITA regardless though...

    Rocker cover studs need helicoil

    Sounds like an expensive way to fix a couple of iffy M6 threads!

    Always worth going through the "proper" channels with random sellers in my experience. PITA regardless though.

    Ah FFS, that's rubbish. Why can't people check things over before they sell them; do they not expect buyrs to check?!

    Disaster engine died

    Do a bit of DIY investigation as you'll want to know what's going on prior to repairing (to avoid a repeat performance), but if the engine is buggered then the cheapest bet will be to pick up a used one to drop in its place. You've not mentioned whether the engine is standard, but if so they're...

    please guide me the right connector please

    There should be a part number on the connector itself - that'll be your best bet for ensuring a like-for-like replacement

    S3 8l windscreen scuttle trim.

    So in effect you can get a new scuttle trim for about £75 through your insurance company and some shiny new glass as a freebie in the process. Not too shabby that.

    Cracking work team, getting close now. Clean install as ever, Tuffty. Not that it's a surprise these days of course! I've fitted LCR fans to a Golf before with no ill effects, so wouldn't be surprised if they are interchangeable across the board.

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    I can edit in vroom vroom noises and a moving background if he sends me some green screen work in the garage? :tearsofjoy:

    Option 3: He's been so slow to get updates out that this could be referring to any break in the past 3 years :whistle2:
