Day 3 of ownership and what a busy one it has been, Really happy and managed to get everything done just as it went dark this afternoon!
As you guys have probably figured out by now I am not happy until I have gone through everything on my cars regardless of how recently the car was last serviced etc. As mentioned earlier in the thread I called to R-Tech on my way home from buying the car and purchased various items, I also gave TPS a ring yesterday morning with a list and ordered some Service Items and finally ordered 5 Litres of Millers Nanodrive from Opie Oils.
The car was last Serviced in April this Year about 2000 Miles ago but its was only a Lube Service, Piece of mind now for me as I know everything's been done.
Just scared myself a little looking at the Invoices, Already upto £800 since buying the car, However I budgeted to spend far more buying a 6R in the first place...That is my excuse.Early Start this morning and today I have done the following...
: Genuine Oil Filter, P/N 06D115562
: Genuine Sump Plug and Washer, P/N N90813202
: Genuine Cabin Filter (Charcoal Version) P/N 1K2819653B
: Genuine Fuel Filter 6.6Bar Version P/N, 1K201051K
: NGK BKR7EIX Iridium Spark Plugs (R-Tech)
: Millers Nanodrive 5W40 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil (Opie Oils)
: Genuine Front Wipers Blades, P/N 1Q2998002
: Genuine Camshaft Follower, Latest Revision, P/N 06D109309C
: Genuine HPFP Seal O-Ring, P/N WHT005184
: Genuine PCV Latest Revision, P/N 06F129101R
: Genuine PCV Gasket, P/N 06F103483E
: Genuine Diverter Valve, Revision G, P/N 06F145710G
: Genuine R8 Coil Packs, P/N 06E905115E (R-Tech)
: GFB-DV+ Uprated Diverter, (R-Tech)
: R-Tech Twinplate Heat-shieldAnd
: Revo Intake (Figured as I will be going beyond Stage 1 this time that I might aswell just bite the bullet and go for a decent Intake)
Also spent probably about an Hour giving everything in the engine bay a good clean as I was going along, Finished off with some Aerospace 303 Protectant.A few pics from today's graft...Busy day ahead...First Job, Cabin Filter...Fuel Filter, The car already had a 6.6 Bar Version fitted but the date stamped on the body was June 2011 so it was the original Item. I will say this again but these should be made part of the Service items IMO...Engine Cover was then removed and I changed the Plugs and Coilpacks, The car had the Revision F Coils fitted probably originals, Also had the NGK's fitted which I prefer over Factory Bosch items...Replacements, Genuine R8 Coilpacks and NGK Iridiums...Onto the PCV, The car had the original Revision N fitted...Replaced with a Revision R and new Gasket...Then the Cam Follower, I am presuming this is the original 38K Mile item and it was in excellent condition. No wear on the coating but looking at the cars History it has been serviced every 9K for the first 3 and then every 5K for the last 2 which will obviously bode well. Good Oil is the key...Cam lobe in excellent condition also...Then up onto Axle Stands and the Oil and Filter was changed...Back on the floor and then next job was the Diverter Valve, The car had the original Revision D Piston type fitted so it wanted replacing!...Decided to buy a Brand New Revision G Diverter just for its solenoid, I know it was totally overkill and I could have retained the Rev D Solenoid but I am happier knowing its all new, I then fitted a GFB-DV+ onto the new Solenoid...Once assembled but before fitting the Piston I applied a small amount of Engine Oil around the Piston, This is recommended before fitting to the car to help lubricate the Brass Piston...Final job was to fit the Revo Intake and R-Tech Twinplate Heatshield, Time was taken when fitting the Intake to get all the hose clips lined up and also getting it to fit as good as possible without rubbing on anything. I was very happy with the end product! Engine bay was also given a tidy up and dressed with Aerospace 303...Ready to rock and roll, Service Indicator Re-set...
