    Hi guys, having a bit of a problem.. boost gauge shows it hits 1.3 bar and then will slowly drop down to 0.8... whereas before it would hold 1.3 until around 6k and then slowly drop.... if Im in low revs, and I floor it, it will rev hunt until it hits full boost, but still doesn't hold it. I've...

    Shell vpower or tesco super

    my m8 has had a 400bhp evo 6 for a couple of years now and he regulates between the two all the time and says there is no noticable difference, i've also tried it and dont think there is a major difference but again can sort of notice abit more eagerness on Vpower, but it could just be in my head.

    Pro's and con's to fitting the dump valve to the cold side?

    I think its a good idea, because its the colder air after the intercooler in recirculated into the turbo, making a percentage of the air even colder when it goes through the turbo and back round the system.. decreasing your inlet temps.

    Alternator Gone

    Dudes, half the "genuwine" parts that you get at the main dealer, are exactly the same from Euro's or GSF etc.. just get the best one, for example, Bosch, LUK, Sachs etc etc.. if you call up any VAG parts desk they all use these brands, but just put the VAG stamp on it. You can get your old...

    Car wont start, just clicks!

    This also happens when your starter goes, 2/3 bolts on the bottom of the Gearbox, get it off, give it a live feed and earth it on the metal part of the casing, see if it spins, and check the other solenoid to see if it jumps out. If not, then you know whats wrong.. you can get a free battery...
