My Rising Blue 6R
« on: February 08, 2016, 09:33:40 PM »
Been on here some time with my mk5 GT TDI which had just clocked up 200k mls so I decided it was time to update the daily.

I was originally looking for a mk6 GTI 2dr with DSG which would of meant I had some money to modify it but I started looking at 6R's and the more I looked the more the GTI just didnt look mean enough.

My only requirements were that it was 3dr and had DSG and leather would have been nice.

So after spending time looking about and getting the missus to agree to up the budget a bit I missed one in my local VW dealer in Norwich which had the lot.

The next nearest was 3 hours away so I waited and this came up in a Kia dealer not to far away.



Its a 2010 standard and not the highest of specs but it has the required 3drs and DSG so I'm happy.

Mods/updates so far are:

Replace RNS510 with a RNS510DAB
VW bluetooth kit
EVOMS
Replaced the HPFP follower

I have a set of 19s to go on it but need to get them refurb'd first




Next will be stage 1 and a downpipe or full turbo back exhaust

Get a HPFP before an exhaust, they make for better and smoother power delivery on these cars. I ran a HPFP on a stock map and the difference was noticeable.

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

Its not that I dont like them but I would of preffered them in 19s then these wheels came up at £130 for the 4 (and they're straight) so I ripped his arm off.

I'll run them and see what I think, will keep the talladega's though

Finally got round to buying a pair of adapters to trial fit the 19s, could only get adapters with a 5x120 & 72mm center bore so had to turn them down to 65mm for the toureg wheels.

Fitted a 235/35/19 tyre to one wheel and fitted it today





According to the internet a 9" rim doesnt fit a mk6 without body mods, these would be ok if I dont lower it and were to keep the tyre size fitted which gives a stretch.

Hey ho, they'll be for sale soon


Still, I did find that the lockers fitted were wrong and had a straight chamfer and not the domed head,

Luckely I had a set from an old car in the garage so I changed them

TBH you could run that wheel quite happily if you add a touch of camber (which would happen if you lowered it anyway).
That wouldn't rub.
Although on the front if may be a bit tighter..

Had to drive to Gatwick last week, and guess what, the misfire is back :(

I had ordered some R8 coil packs from AKS, so fitted them but that did not fix it.

After doing some more checking on the TFSI facebook page, I was told that a misfire doesnt always show as a fault code

I checked measuring blocks 15 and 16, live misfires and there it was on cylinder 1.

So here is how it looks now



Although, I did think about selling it as a non runner whilst trying to undo this



Bloody manifold support bracket  :evil:

So, it looks like emerald (a local tuner) do injector cleaning and checking so I'll give em a call tomorrow


Does anyone know how the date codes read on the injectors?
Mine show as 09 10 15 which could be ddmmyy and therefore were changed last year or they read yymmdd which would put them inline with the build date of the car
