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...
