Next on the list is -- Super pro rear 24mm adjustable ARB, Super pro front ball joints & the same EBC orange stuff pads I had in the Edition 30. My mate is an agent for a company up North who do maps I forget their name but he can do me a file for 'cheap' 177bhp/395nm.Mates rates and all that.
Found it - http://www.bhp-uk.net

I really want a set of 8x18 Speedline turinis on it, think they look the nuts in Anthracite, but they're £1100 without tyres!!!!

So might just get a cheap set of BBS Pescara 'style' wheels, the classic Y spoke design, seen some on Wheelbase's site

Cleaned again! Washed and dried, used some Autobrite trade glaze polish which comes off easy...

VW love to tax their sensors - I replaced my rear level sensor for light leveling with an aftermarket one  - its been fine.
Suspect someone had dropped the arm and hadn't undone the level.

Looking good in very little time - how is it driving now after initial fixes?

Looking good, great colour.

Those wheels look great  :happy2:  Love the Turinis as well, very OEM looking, but gone up a lot in price  :surprised:

180ish bhp is pretty good and should hopefully liven up the bottom end a bit as well.  They're a bit flat down low.  Did a scan on the MK6, Flash count = 1  :grin:  No way it's performance mapped though, too slow.  Hopefully just a dealer update.  I wonder what the difference is between 140 and 170 GTD? Boost pressure?  Bigger turbo?

Glad you're enjoying it.  So much easier to drive in traffic.  Just lift your foot off the clutch.  The slow idle speed and lack of torque in the ED30 can't do that  :grin:

God we're getting old getting excited by a diesel  :grin:

140 is same hardware as 170 just different software and EGT sensor, have been reading up on it.

I know mate we must be getting old, well I'm 50 in January!

Mine has flash count 2 guess dealer updates...

edit - 170 has different turbo.

Its not what you know but who.

Went into local VW dealer stores today, guy I used to work with runs it. Asked him how much the genuine VW 0w30 LONG LIFE 3 oil is for the Scirocco (Cant put any old crap in it, has DPF) "Well Gary, it should be £60 but you can have it for £30"

Result!!

So gave car oil, fuel and pollen filter service using all genuine parts , pollen filter was black! I put an air filter element in when we fixed the turbo muffler leak.

Nice price!

Shouldn't take a lot to boost up a 140 to 170 then.  A new VAG indie has opened up near me recently so I'll ask if he has a VW ODIS machine and he can sling the probe and software onto it.  Should only be an hour's labour and the part.  Way cheaper than a £300-£500 remap!

Yeah I was wondering about the DPF and whether our 09 plate has one.  Does it not need Ad blu? Or did that come later?  I know diddly squat about diesels  :grin:

I noticed the other day the TDI pulls the same 80mph @ 3000rpm as the ED30.  I thought diesel gearing would be taller!

No ad blue on the earlier DPF vehicles mate.

I got the info on the 140-170 off TDI CLUB forum, will find a link and post up here.

Ahh, I posted previously that the 140-170 was same hardware, looks like the 170 has bigger turbo too....

"The cheapest and easiest way to tune a CBDB engine is to flash the original .sgo flash from the CBBB engine (GTD - 170hp).

You need to change the EGT-sensor from 03L906088JG to 03L906088BS. The CBDB Sensor will not work (different resistance).

Flash the ECU to 03L906022LC.

Then you can tune the 022LC (CBBB) File, but i recommend to change the Turbo to the bigger CBBB Turbo.
CBBB Turbo: 03L253056C.

You will get over 200hp with that Turbo and ECU Type. Why i know that? because i did it that way in the past ;)
You dont need to change the clutch, i used the stock CBDB clutch with 215hp and 420nm torque. (Its the same clutch like on the CBBB engine)"

Ah OK, that's annoying.  I won't be allowed to fit a bigger turbo  :grin:

Mind you, he didn't say the bigger turbo was mandatory though  :wink:

Good info mate  :happy2:

Does it? That sounds about right!  I was looking at the tacho from the passenger side but next time I drive it, I'll check and confirm.  I did think the gearing was a bit short for a diesel  :grin:

Yeah our MK6 does 80mph at 2K as well.

Been talked out of a remap by my local VAG specialist.  He sees too many clogged DPFs and knackered fuel pumps/injectors from remaps, but obviously a mapper will keep quiet about that.

I might just bolt on all the GTD hardware instead and flash it accordingly, which he agreed would be the better solution.
