A rare clean.  It always surprises me how well she comes up considering the exterior neglect it receives  :grin:



Downgrade to Stage 1 also done.  Stock DP (with both cats) and a brand new HPFP from VW.  £99 inc shipping for the DP and £208+VAT for the pump.   Standard, ungutted DPs are getting harder to come by for a reasonable price these days.  Obscene money for a new one from VW last time I checked.



Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

I'm not going anywhere and not selling up yet  :smiley:   Just a change in circumstances means I won't use the car as often anymore, so it's a waste having all that tasty kit sitting there doing nothing.

Standard or Stage 1 with the Ohlins is more than enough for me on the odd occasion I use it  :happy2:

All I did today was remove 4 sensors for cleaning; the MAF, MAP, IAT, and cam speed/position sensors.
I do this about every 20k miles...a soak in alcohol for 5-10 minutes and allow to dry for 30 min. to one hour. Replace o-rings if needed to take up any slop in their sockets ensuring there are no slight leaks of boost and done.

At last - fitted rear foot well lights, but only to the passenger side! Tomorrow will be the drivers side turn. I was distracted by a neighbour's TR4 - old cars are so simple...

The quest continues to get the facia perfect for the passat cc dials, can’t get some of the holes perfect but don’t think I’d get that unless it was made by a computer.
