  1. ECU

    After finding out the second hand turbo ecu chip has a rom fault I'm ditching standard management. Has anyone got a spare cheep broken or working obd2 ecu I can buy? Need one so I can use the plug to adapt a emerald ecu to plug and play.
  2. Obd2 Ecu not earthing fuel pump

    If anyone has this issue, the immobiliser module was blown. It was a immobiliser delete ecu and had no coms to it from the obd port. But after bypassing the immobiliser From the obd port to the ecu the car started and the ecu ran the fuel pump correctly.
  3. Ebay Turbo Kit?

    I wouldn't bother with one of these mate. You’d just be throwing money down the drain. A lot of that stuff in the kit is such poor quality. Depends what you want tho, if your after a cheep bit of fun and don't care about your car it maybe some cheep fun. But its missing alot of stuff to make it run safe. Im at the end of a turbo build thats taken me 5 years. Ive had that manifold. Unboxed it, in close inspection the casting was very poor and wafer thin. The waste gate port was too small and would need porting to the right size, ended up putting it back in the box and selling it and getting a kinetic manifold instead. Miles different in quality. Also the Chinese AN fittings have poor thread which may work, but comparing to a quality fitting made by Tourques is enough to make me not use them. Also I didnt need to use slim line fans, which looks like a package filler. the boost controller would be questionable. Its missing the down pipe and you would need a chip or software to run it safely. Also engine mounts would need uprating if your going up in boost. Id just steer clear of this kit and sorce quality parts. The turbo could work but wouldnt be a sealed bearing and are usually not balanced. If you want to turbo a vr6 think of a price and tripple it and you might be closer to a realist price.
  4. My VR6 blows crazy amounts of smoke!!

    Hello mate. Sorry been off grid for a few years. Just seen your post on my oil burner post. How much oil are you going through?
  5. Is there anybody out there?

    Hello, there is someone still using this forum. Im a old user from 6 years ago. Still have the same car which will be going for a MOT for the first time in 6/7 years. First trip boosted. Will be interesting. May have to get a tow hook and a bag off tools ready 😂. Im sure once its on the road ill be posting again with odd faults only my car has developed. I must say tho in the last 5/6 years VR6’s are few and far between. Hardly ever see one on the road now.
  6. Corrado and mk3 swap

    Im currently running a mk3 golf vr6t and was wondering if I were to swap it into a non vr6 Corrado could I use all my good stuff? - Are the front subframes the same? - If not can I use all the mk3 vibra engine mounts? - Do corrados run CE2 fuse boxes for plug and play ease? - Whats the standard bolt pattern? 5x100? 4x100? do they change between models? vr6, g60 and valvers? Also what are the differences in specs on the Corrados? vr6, g60, 16 valver? do any of these have Climatronic? the pop up rear spoiler is that vr6 only? leather interiors, was that a option or only on specific models? Thanks for any input
  7. Obd2 Ecu not earthing fuel pump

    yeah relay is fine if i earth out the wire going to the relay the relay clicks over and the fuel pump runs. its a new relay a year ago also the ignition switch is £6 so ill just stick it in when I replace all the locks on the car as they were mostly all odd.
  8. Dont know if anyone eles has had this issue. The Ecu should earth my fuel pump relay to prime the fuel pump then when cranking turn the pump on. Mine has stopped doing this, but if I earth the wire going to the the ecu from the fuse box it will run the fuel pump when the ignition turns on. But if you sit there with the engine off but woth ignition on the pump will continuously run. Main earth on ecu pin 1 is good, main live and switch lives are good, earths under battery on chassis leg are all clean, earth on inlet manifold is good. Any other ideas? Have a new ignition switch on the way incase somthings up with that for the sake of £6. Thanks.
  9. Oil burner

    That last comment makes me laugh, engine rebuild was quick and not as painful as I originally thought, but that turbo build is still not finished lol. Altho I may hear it run for the first time since I pulled the engine out all those years ago tomorrow last piece of the puzzle is my new fuel pump which arrived today... Lets hope she doesn't smoke like she did 3 years ago!
  10. Turbo oil feed

    Hi has anyone run their turbo oil feed from upper chain tensionor using the fixing seen on ebay? If so was the standard hydralic upper chain tensionor ok? Or was the jiggery pokery required?
  11. turbo fuel pump options?

    cool, i don't often run a tank on the light but if i was to get caught short id like to know i could cruise it to a petrol station. ill order up a pump and do some investigating. also wonder if you'll need to run higher gauge wiring to the pump from the fuel pump relay like they did in mighty car mods nissan v8 turbo "the double unicorn build".
  12. turbo fuel pump options?

    Looks like a walbro 400 is on the cards when i get some spare time ill pop it on and let you chaps know what the fitting was like, I remember stealth racing supplying a "kit" which consisted of a bit metal ring which the pump sat in and people only being able to run a minimum of 1/4 tank. Is this going to be the same?
  13. hi chaps back again. Made some progress with the turbo work. Engines built, turbos on short runners on engines back in and gearbox is rebuilt with a LSD installed. Now its time to do the fueling. Im aiming for 450ish bhp and was wondering what my options are. I want to keep my standard fuel tank in the mk3, should i opt for a walbro 255 intank pump? Or a bosch 044 external pump with a standard low presure pump in tank feeding the 044? Are there any other options? To be honest with you im after the most simple installs as this project has hit one snag after another. Any help or suggestions welcome aslong as you are talking first hand experiance and not here say what you have read, or what you mates mate has told you ive been lead up the garden path a few times and want to get stuff right first time.
  14. Hi have you still got this for sale?
  15. As the tittle reads, what coolant/anti freeze are people running in tuned vr6's? Has it made any difference and are there any side effects?
