Looking good some nice through detail and photos, this is going to be invaluable!

What what the last minute dash for the HPFP o-ring, was it just precautions?

For some reason when we came to refit the HPFP the seal had enlarged so it wouldnt fit back in the ridge (like it has stretched). Its never been changed before so for the sake of 13 quid its worth having a spare just incase.

Nice. Are you going to do the rest of the guide rich? I agree with diylebros I think you should write about vcds values, and remember to put 24/24 for axx and duty cycle for axx fluctuates, but all others are 28/28 and duty cycle sits at 5.9%. Perhaps block 93 put around -2kw. Good write up, going to be the best on the internet.

Yes gonna keep doing a bit here and there. Will do some more on it later. But yes it will be as comprehensive as I can make it.

Will speak to you about the values etc ones I've completed it.

Cool. I order a new one today for spares thought it would be a bit cheaper but suppose it's a good bit of rubber.

With your guide is it worth say how to get the cams aligned? Is it turning the bottom crank bolt?

Yes... I need to add more regards the timing of the cams. I got lucky as the cams were nearly lined up.

Once ive spoken to alex about the alignment i will add it to the guide.
