    Unfortunately the original thread fell victim during a massive forum spam attack, so I've restarted it!

    Sorted the door frame & latch,pulled the bulkhead,stright,after removing the wing this was long overdue. I then cut some ply for the 3 front seats to be recoverd in leather,as my bum as my bum getting sore from the very old foam.So the door is not held shut with bungys now, the door now shuts with only a 1" gap at the top. And after tomorrow by bum should start to recover.

    I replaced the oil seals on the nearside hubs so now they dont leak, will find out if i did it right when on the way to the MOT test station I guess as he is SORN at the min while I got some jobs done in the hope of a pass!

    fitted a new rear stop/tail/reflector/number plate light

    Found that my rear axle where the strengthening section is was rotten and a PO had filled it with expanding foam!!!! Cleaned it all off ready to grind as I am lead to believe I can cope without it for an MOT etc. In cleaning off the area a small hole appeared in the axle case so had to drain the oil then use some funky metal putty to repair it, will put new EP80/90 in tomorrow so hopefully its done the trick

    mines the same, tooooo loud for my liking though, but in a nice way. gotta love the sound of the turbo spooling up . i alreadsy have the pipe and a silencer to make a copy of the original system. this engine must be plated with quite a lot, but i havnt checked it out yet to see for sure. in the disco it came out of, it was unstoppable in first high, a lot more torquey than my disco , so much so i thought it might have 4.7:1 diffs in, but it didnt .

    mine was a little loud when the wastegate opened, but normal driving I found it OK

    are you going to keep the exhaust as a straight through?
    to keep the back pressure to a minimum?
    dont want any turbo lag do you?


    and its not a bad thing if the engine is tuned....properly that is....
    I chuckle when I see people just wind the max fuelling screw in....

    im going to use a disco middle box, just to make it quiet, they are straight through, so dont really give any back pressure, but do silence them quite well. thats how i run my disco, and its a good compromise. i will be checking how this ones been tuned. i havnt touched the max fuel on my disco, just the diaphragm, smoke screw and knurled nut under the diaphragm, just so she dumps loads of fuel in to get the turbo spinning, which it has. i dont really like turbos off road, they are nothing without the turbo, and get a bit uncontrollable when they kick in. i much prefer a 2 1/4 petrol, just a shame they wont do 30 mpg

    no N/A and superchargers are nicer off road

    but if the Tdi is tuned nicely and fitted with a decent intercooler, they arent too bad....
    my S3 was fine once the revs were over 1,500rpm....


    I do think a V8 is going to be interesting though

    Bought a pristine 'new old stock' radiator panel from ebay last night. Picking it up this evening. Then tomorrow, more sanding of bonnet, wings etc etc to get ready for paint. So far have the following to paint and fit:

    Passenger wing
    Drivers door and door top
    Passenger door and door top
    Front radiator panel
    Front apron panel
    Bonnet

    As always the case, seem to be accumulating more stuff to prep and get ready to repolace than I do actually getting them on the vehicle. Plan is to get all the above ready from spraying in one (though probably two) batches, then get them fitted before the summer's out. Just need some time off work when I'm not doing all the other things that don't do themselves!

    Fitted a straight through exhaust as my 'Temporary' one I put on three years ago fell off. Its a bit loud and I really need to put a new one on now!
