  4. +1 for crank sensor, had the same on my old VR, to begin with just wouldnt start sometimes when hot then eventually started cutting out on me. Replaced a good few parts befor i got to the crank sensor, HT leads, temp sensor, etc. Right nightmare of a fault as your never sure its fixed till it breaks down again Had a few embarrassing breakdowns in mine before i got it fixed.
  5. Turbo info?

    Cheerrs for the offer but not looking at buying one at the moment, just trying to find a little out about turboing so im a bit more clued up about it for if/when i decide to go for it. Had a quick skim over your build thread the other day, some nice work there!
  6. Turbo info?

    Yeah your probs right. Not plannin on buyin anythin at the moment anyway.

  8. Turbo info?

    Thanks guys, had a look on garrets page and its cleared up most of the Qs. Might order a copy of that book at some point too. Anyone had any experiance with the cheap turbos on german ebay? I'll post up a link in a min.
  9. MOT

    May be a catalyst but seems a little high for that. Was the CO fluctuating a lot while they were doing the test. It will usually go alot higher than 1 if theres a dodgy sensor.
  10. MOT

    What were the readouts on the emmissions printout, can usually get a good idea from that whats up? CO reading up to about 0.8 or 0.9 % is usually a nakered cat, can sometimes be fixed as above with some fuel additive an a good thrash. Anything above that an more likley a 02 sensor or MAF or plugs etc. If it failed on the lambda reading its usually just a small leak in the exhaust somewhere. Have a look on the printout and post up the readouts.
  11. Turbo info?

    Can anyone recommend a webpage or a book that i can use to get some knowledge abou turbos. Been reading up on a few old threads on here an all the abbriviations and numbers are jibberish to me. I know how they work its just all the talk abou A/Rs and T3, T4 and GT35s and stuff like that i dont understand. Quite fancy trying a diy turbo build at some point and would like to know what im doing. Did a quick search on google but couldnt find what i was looking for :@
  12. Got the pics sorted, cheers hvr6. Unsure about the wheels, i like them but i really like d90s on a mk3. Been trying to sort out getting an interior, hopefully getting a full black highline interior, and maybe also a couple of black leather recaros Bloody expensive though having to get everything shipped to shetland:(
  13. Anyone tell me how to ght the pictures where i want them?
  14. After about 4 years away from VR ownership just agreed tonight to buy a mk3 GTi with just about everything needed for a vr6 conversion on a pallet. Some pics from the sale ad... Getting the car with no seats as the current owner has already sold the seats Started out life as an 8valve and the current owner converted to an 16valve, which he is removing prior to me picking up the car, which will give some time to get the engine and give a once over. Was resprayed about 18 months ago in BMW Estoril Blue so bodywork is mint Dont have a good history with project cars so hopefully this one will go a bit better :S Anyone tell me if theres anything to watch out for doing the conversion that i might not hav thought of?
  15. Power steering pipes?

    Anyone know anywhere you can get them cheap, the ones from the pump/resivior to the rack? Think genuine ones are about 200 quid for both.
