Best thing I done - I was changing plugs etc and the issue would go away for a bit, but since doing the TFSI coils no more issue. Power is smoother without any holding back or misfiring.I'm tempted by the TFSI coils, but I'm trying to keep the car as standard as possible. However I guess at some point I will have to convert. As I not sure you can even buy the old style coils anymore.
Bobby do you have garage I can visit a4 3.0 cab 07 no dpf remapped would like to go to 320bhp or slightly more regards Stephen. GuildfordHaven't got pics but the hinges for the front doors are now changed and working well - nice to have doors that stay in place.
Tricky part is the adjustment but I found measuring the old hinge (has a big hex for adjustment behind the bolt) got me 95% there and then used a jack to lift the door with the 4 bolts on the slackened off.
Next the new engine and all the rest of the parts are at the machine shop
They will bore the block using the torque plate
Keeping in mind the piston to wall clearance of 0.10mm
Everything will be balanced, washed and cleaned
I've asked to them machine the crank nose surface to ensure its true.
Ring gaps 0.40 top 0.45 second
Finally skim the deck.
In other news I bought a 7a head had it converted for turbo use, but it seems someone the past had repaired the exhaust stud thread and gone through:
Seller said he'll replace it so waiting on him now

Is this your handy work or a company?Balancing
The only thing that didn't need any balancing was the flywheel
Sachs clutch, cranks fluid filled pulley etc all needed balancing
Thanks Karl - trying to do the best job possible for this motorGreat work, That's a really professional fix for that issue on head. Most people would have just drilled a slot in the manifold and left it at that. Those ring gaps look quite small is that stock ring gap numbers?
Its my machine shop I'm using they mostly deal with tradeIs this your handy work or a company?
Hey Karl I got a sneaky feeling the vinegar has attacked the surfaces when I cleaned the block up. Once the attached area is cleaned up it should be fine - but its just my theory without any evidence.That's very strange about the main caps Bobby. Have to ask the question, you did have them in the correct order and the correct orientation. I am sure you double checked everything. I use the 12.9 PD main bolts in my 1.8T. The stock 1.8T mains are 10.9 and the 2.0 TFSI use the same bolts as the PD150.

That's exactly what it is - nice and small approx £40 from HalfordsIs this just a trickle charger Bobby? Straight forward to use? I need to invest in something for my B5, it often struggles when I don’t drive it for 3/4 weeks at a time.
