It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Thought id stick an update up since i hevent in a while.

Well I upgraded the clucth to a Helix organic stage 1 and a new DMF. Car feels night and day as it was slipping something crazy near the end there.

Car currently has:

Tarox grooved and dimpled disks and pads all round
Michelin Pilot V3s
Stage 1 APR remap
H&R Dampening and height adjustable V2 coilovers
Stage 1 Helix organic clutch and new DMF etc
Cam follwer changed again recently..tho old one was still perfect..i change every 5K or something.
All new service parts for winter to be fitted shortly ie new plugs(gapped correctly) coil packs filters air, fuel, pollen and oil.
Always run on Millers nano and will get a full change agaun during service as soon as i have the time to do it all.

Anyway heres a few pics after a quick sesh with the DA


Got myself a DA polisher and had a wee go the other day...disnt go for a really abrasive pad to start as it was the first time id used a DA...but it came up great with a polishing pad some poorboys ssr2 and going over again with autoglym super resin then pain sealant then some HD wax. Once i get some proper chemical guys pads i will get proper into it.

Just a few random pics of the golf...top ones are before DB9 upgrade so the stance is now different will update again later tonight with some recent work carried out and look etc. I feel I need to add I didn't put BP in my car it's genuinely only ever been ran on VPower since I've owned it bar 1 time I was working middle of nowhere and put £30 Tesco 99 in....daft but one of my many OCD things.

Great upgrade!  :congrats:

Niki says Tesco works just as well as VPower. You can use either without worries. :smiley:

Thanks lads they have been on for months but ive not had a chance to update this in a while.

Injectors didnt arrive back from R-tech today so should be tomorrow and ive stuck in a runner flap delete kit while the manifold was off.

Had a serious issue attempting to remove the cam chain adjuster bolt today....sheared the polydrive bit in two! Will stick a few pics up later hopefully. I bought the polydrive bit (Laser) off Amazon as my mate from VW is in OZ so cant get a sneaky shot of tools till hes back...4 weeks meh. The bolt is ok and i got the broken part out no probs...trying anothe one tomorrow :scared:

Heres the almost finished results of the valve clean...pictures dont do it justice of how bad they were before the clean. This is my car currently on 114k.



Above is showing cyl4 3 2 1 top to bottom




This is them not actually 100%...i left them overnight to dry out more and gave anotjer go today after that polydrive snapped to give me something to do....will take more pics before installing the manifold.

Your inlet cleaning is really impressive....  :happy2:

It backs up my suspicions that fuel additives, or introducing fuel & cleaner mixes directly through the manifold will never shift that amount of crud.

Can I as how easy was it to remove in the inlet manifold?

Wow, such a difference!

I'll get R-Tech to do mine when I've got the money.

Cheers mate much appreciated. Took me a good few hours to clean them up. It can be a pain getting the manifold off tbh if your doing it on the driveway like me. I had to remove the throttle pipe from under the car....i have an uprated much thicker intercooler so limits space...id say a good hour to get it off at least. Oh and your right about the spray clean highly doubtful it would remove a significant amount to anywhere near this level as it is thick amd embedded.

Wow, such a difference!

Cheers mate...R-Tech didnt clean my inlet valves etc I done that (8 hours worth), R-Tech reconned and tested my injectors only. But i believe they do do that service and the guys down there are spot on very helpful. Im only showing this as most of our cars are in this region of milage probably so worth a wee check.
