  5. 1996 VW GOLF MK3 VR6 Highline

    Sorry sold last year.
  6. Are you a lurker?

    Hi Guys. I think you can class me as a lurker I do jump on and take a read everyone and again. Having the Tapatalk app integration is a great help towards that. This is my VR Highline which I've actually sold now waiting for collection. Was a reluctant sale but didn't have the space on the driveway. This is the replacement - 3.2 DSG Audi
  7. Wire brush to clean up around under the adjuster as much as you can. Prefer gt85 over wd40 or some lock shock stuff there is a wd40 version or Halfords own brand. Vice the shock up and use a big heavy hammer and keep whacking the adjuster. If no budge you can heat up the adjusters and that will definitely get them moving. Just be careful not too heat too much as you don't want to damage the shock internals. I kept touching the shock body whilst heating as soon as felt it was getting a bit too warm I stopped and commenced hammering.
  8. paint code

    If that's worn away and unreadable you maybe best to guess the colour then go to a paint shop and check against there colour charts. What colour is it?
  9. I'm doing the same conversion in mine at the moment pretty much at the same stage as you. Will be bolting intake manifold up tonight and plumbing up all the coolant hoses hopefully too. I'd be interested to know what the efficient placement of the MAF from the throttle body would be also - I had planned to keep OEM distance which would have thought be fine no?
  10. Heater Matrix removal

    You should be able to just undo the two hoses going into the heater matrix and with dash removed undo the 4 screws holding the heatermatrix in place in the complete fan unit and pull up and replace. You shouldn't need to undo any other bolts in the engine bay apart from two to remove the dash. Sounds like you trying to remove the whole heating/fan unit
  11. Sounds like a tank, engine buggered?

    ooohhh hope so too, theres a lot of wires there I wouldn't want to sit trouble shooting to find which one is shorting/broken
  12. dyeing interior

  13. Sounds like a tank, engine buggered?

  14. What did you do to your VR6 today?

    Cheers, hoping to have it ready for the cgti ring trip in August and vag castle coombe track day see if all this hard work has paid off.....
  15. dyeing interior

    I've been looking into this, I've heard a few people use this stuff below from halfords. Let us know how you get along if you do mate. As for pillars I've decided to cloth wrap them to be on safe side. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_173967_langId_-1_categoryId_165495 http://www.vwwatercooled.org.au/f22/diy-headlining-fabric-replacement-pic-intensive-31256.html
  16. What did you do to your VR6 today?

    Thanks' date=' a lot of pain staking hours to get these to work. All in the aid to get my 9x17's to run on the car and allow me to run camber with out using spacers as they are et28, I would have had to run posi camber to get them to fit without rubbing my coilover springs Got them tucked in nicely now :-) Still loads left until completion
  17. Emissions being horrid

    Misfire dodgy coilpack? not really sure what it could be. how bad is it? Have you considered another test station ;-)
  18. What did you do to your VR6 today?

    finally got round to fitting my custom (darn expensive) made topmount's
  19. Sounds like a tank, engine buggered?

    Coilpack?? I knacked mine after a sprint against a BMW on the m4 the other week. Was not firing 5 & 6. I checked by unplugging the leads one by one to see any changes to engine running. Swapped coilpack with my other VR and working a treat again.
  20. My Black Magic VR6

    Very nice, Managed to get any pics of the body work after you've flat and polished it all up?
  21. Welding

    I used a damaged mk2 wing for metal and Evo-stik Hard & Fast Metal Epoxy Putty from halfords.
  22. 288 standard brake discs (VAG - ~£54 on trade) Mintex M1155 pads Halfords race fluid - a must as normal stuff will boil and spongy pedal feeling after couple of hard sessions
  23. Suspension - Koni Coilovers + Eibach ARB kit Wheels - 9x17's ET28 Tyres - 215/40/17' Arch work - Mild pull work going on at the moment although with slight lip roll would have worked without an issue. Issues - ************* To be completed *************
