Re: loosing boost without any leaks
Last Poster: DomBacon in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:46:08 PM
19 PSI sounds about right... stage 2 revo usually peaks about 1.3-1.4 bar.

It doesn't hold like it used to
It hits 19psi for like 0.1 second and drops to 13/14 psi

^^^^ I Doubt we'll be seeing any additional ponnies from the Mistress, her poor little Turbo is pretty maxed as is but who knows, WMI and BT then maybe.

I knew its gonna be sooner or later on the BT kit Martin :wink:

I think looking at this pic they go in from the back

the black holders twist out and then change bulbs and twist back in remember leds only work one way test before refitting  :happy2:


Re: Wheel sealant recommendations
Last Poster: Frenzy in Detailing on Yesterday at 10:09:33 PM
I agree that poor boys wheel sealant has a great smell but i have to agree more strongly with the point that it doesn't last long enough. When i finish my pot of poor boys i'll be getting something else, sounds like that something will be FK1000p  :smiley:

Re: Best anti roll bars for track.
Last Poster: rex in Track Day Technical on Yesterday at 09:46:30 PM
I am a fan of H&R ARB's because they are maintenance FREE (teflon bushings).
For track I would use the 28/24 setup.
H&R used to make e 28 rear ARB but I am not sure they make it any more. The closest thing would be a 27 BSH rear ARB. Both of these are quite dangerous if you don't really know what you are doing but are great especially on autocros or other slow speed even

Just type ATP Turbo into the search box when you're at the main forum board and see the posts that people have said. Not looking good if I'm honest, some of the people posting are well know tuners on this forum.

Last Poster: JaseGti in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Yesterday at 06:56:25 PM
When I get time I'll pull it out and check the fuse behind it.

It's just weird how it's not been used for 2 weeks then when I get back it doesn't work....

If that doesn't work I'll probably just upgrade it, I did want to do it anyway but not just before Xmas eek
