    Tuning? They have a fight to just keep them running.
    Making them faster usually consists of whacking a V6 petrol engine in.
    I'm pleased I run a mk5.(no ecu to contend with lol)
    Blank the EGR and turn the mid range and top end fueling up on the Bosch pump.
    Then proceed everywhere in a cloud of black smoke.(either turn fueling down a bit or get more air in to compensate without lighting the dsh board up like a Xmas tree)

    On a plus note there's not page after page of HGF ;)

    Hiya mate yea I'm good got the turbo sorted easily enough it goes really well, only thing is I saw a c class merc at the week end fully loaded more toys than I can play with ( I mean who wants to watch a dvd while driving ) so it will have to go now.
    but I know I'm going to miss it, it seem odd to say but it seems to have a personality (does that sound a bit girly well I am from Featherstone) all the best Melv

    Hia Kris hope you are well, I think my turbo has gone, am at work all weekend and into the start of the week so a local garage will be taking a look at it. Have you got one spare by any chance if so how much?
    They are a good bunch at this garage but I can't help trying to give them a hand ha ha
    thanks mate Melv

    So you say. I seem to be working more than enjoying the "decent time off". Meant to be doing 4 day weeks... By the time I have split my time between the ZR, family and friends... NVM... Cynical much? lol

    How's development going?

    Yes DAKs... I am indeed still a footplate bandit. Keeps me really busy because of the hours. How's things on the L-series development front? :)

    Thanks for the kind words mate. Yeah, it's funny how life can deal one a kick in the nads sometimes - but it's what you make and do with the situation that makes the difference... Which is stating the obvious, but you know what I mean, lol. We are (well, Vik is) going for this Personal Budget thing, there'll be a few schillings available for holidays etc - will give you a shout Kris, when it all comes off. Would be nice to hook up if you have the time, seems bloody ages since me'n'her last went up north, lol.

    Yeah, alright mate. Working through the issues with the missus, who's getting stronger all the time. Doing some R&D work with my mate (Vik's instructor) to make some stroke specific rehab equipment up too. Busy times - same as for you guys, some impressive gains on the 4-motion there, for sure! You ever get that Synth?
    Rik420SDi ·
    Yeah, she's alright cheers - improving slow and sure, still a major struggle with balance and speech. We are blessed with an incredible PT guy that she and I have been taking through his ARNI (see the link in my sig) training - he's just qualified, and now runs classes at our group as well as his 1-2-1 sessions with her. Inspirational chap, and doing wonderful work. I'm no musician - my creative talent lies unexplored elsewhere...
    Rik420SDi ·
    Yeah, not bad, mate, thanks for asking - not been on much, had a bit on with R&D work for the Hyundai Coupe forums I'm on (new inlet manifold design), hospital lectures and plenty rehab stuff for the missus...

    Busy time. Hows things for you...

    Aaaah! SPI Wizard... They are on version 3 now me thinks. That MPPS should do the trick for what you are looking to use it for.

    Extra large VNT FTW! lol But seriously... Wouldn't it be more beneficial to start easing the boost in earlier? Surely that would make driveablity more enjoyable? I am thinking that most of the VAG/BMW crew waffle about lag-free maps for VNT turbo'd cars...

    On a side note, I disconnected the vac lead to my EGR today... Performance in 1st and 2nd has improved... but as expected the EML came on after about 45 minutes (unusual as the first time I did it the light came on as soon as I switched the car on). I have to now keep clearing it using that Android Torque app lol Oh well... Not all bad.

    Sick! As I have just got into the MG/Rover TD scene I am not au-fait with which VNT is suitable. Are they similar to the BMW units? I have changed one of those on my old car, they do have a tendency to coke up the vanes leading to massive flat spots. However... They supply massive boost from very early in the rev range so should yeald some nice torque curves :) Obviously you know this... I love to patronise :p lol

    I have come across those MPPS units before. But do they work on our ECUs?

    No luck with the stuff you sent me... I seem to have a zip file and not an installer. I have worked out what I need to do once it is installed though. ;-) How's the VNT stuff going? :)
