  1. I'll have to take a butchers at that.. sounds nice..
  2. If ya need any advise on anything just ask, I know these motors inside out now.. [emoji6]
  3. Looks nice mate.. You say you've got R32 running gear, so I'm guessing you've changed out steering rack, cast arms, changed the hubs & ARB's? I've done all that to my 5 door, also got adjustable rear tie bars & she's polly bushed right round. Got vibra-technics engine mounts and for a while now it's been sat on AP coilovers which I want to change out at some point for Koni SRT, for a little more comfort on my 44 year old ass lol.. I've done a tone of other stuff including having had the motor & box out for some new components & a bit of a bay clean up... Anyway hers my old gi
  4. You initially said £200....[emoji848] how's it gone up £50...
  5. The chains may appear fine but they do wear. If you make a comparison with a new set, you'll see the difference immediately. The links wear and create more side to side movement. If you hold up the old chain on its side at either end, you shall notice the difference of wear from a new one, in that the old one shall fall into a bigger loop than the new... Hope that makes sence! No point in skimping on the chains when it's all stripped down, you may aswel change the lot... Granted the chains may last a little longer than the guides however, it just makes more practical sence to change ever
  6. It's defiantly worth servicing the haldex mate.. I'm way over the top with mine as I change bothe oil & filter every 10k or 12mth which every comes sooner. Anyway the usual is oil every 20 & both every 40k. I've adapted my filling point with a custom snap fix set up, makes life so much easier & dont spill a drop??
  7. Sounds like you may have a dodgy injector.. Or FPR (fuel pressure regulator).. Sometimes you'll get a bunch of codes pop up because of the affects of another fault however, it does all point toward fuel or electrical issue..
  8. Hey fella I really wouldn't worry too much as there's a lot people being way overzealous on this subject... There's also a whole lot of misinterpreted information on the technicalities of the infamous vr6 timing chains i.e. Stretching! 1st of all chains do not stretch... This is a myth, however they can & do wear out, the way in which a chain wears is in the side to side movement of each link. The parts that tend to wear out in the motor are the guilds & tensioners causing the chains to become slacker which can eventually effect the timing, especially on the 24valvers due to them hav
  9. Take some pictures & upload them to photobucket, flicker or tumblr, then simply add a link on here mate...
  10. Sold it for food.??? That's a pretty desperate situation to be in pal.. Going hungry & keeping a car!! That's something no one regrets surly... Anyway I'm glad to hear you've obviously gotten through such tuff times & back in a position where hunger no longer takes precedence over a VR6[emoji6]
  11. If you root around on hear I'm sure you'll find more appropriate info with regards to obd1 Tunning...
  12. Sorry mate I didn't explain myself properly.. With regards to mapping, on an obd1 you can either by an upgrade chip or have one specifically custom mapped for your car. Here a link to anther thread on hear that can help explain a little more for you... http://www.vr6oc.com/forum/topic/29376-my-stock-golf-mk3-vr6-28-could-use-a-little-more-power/
  13. The best gains of a good remap in all honesty is not so much gains of bhp however, what is a noticeable difference is much better throttle response & a bit more grunt with an increased torque curve. Top end is slightly increased too, plus a slightly better MPG! Bhp is of course also increased but if you really want good decent gains then you'll wanna go down the more expensive route of changing cams, decreasing crank load, exhaust manifold, sports cats, exhaust etc... Anyway the answer to your question in my opinion is yes a remap is worth it, but don't expect massive gains!! Mk4motion
