  2. Mk2 vr6t question

    Hi guys , First post in a year because I’ve been too busy enjoying my VR6! But I’ve decided to sell my supercharger and finally go the turbo route, something I’ve been wanting to do since I had it rebuilt last year, I was hoping to get some advice on what turbo setup I’d need to hit around 500-600hp mark to suit the build I’ve got. specs are as follows; 9:1 compression Schimmel 263’s Forged Bottom end ARP all round V5 gearbox Stock vr6 clutch (replacing) I’ve been using the stock mk2 ecu but in the process of ordering an emu black. Any help would would be greatly appreciated, Brannon

  6. Supercharged 6psi new cams

    Hello I'm about to get some work done to my VR in February and was looking at replacing the stock cams with the Schimmel 263's does anyone know if that is too big a jump from standard if I'm only running 6psi?

  9. Hi mate, well I believe so! I followed your advice and checked the radiator all seemed fine, also tried the cardboard to see anything under it but nothing - I did however notice a squeal from the engine bay after it warmed up and my supercharger wasn't completely on tight, and i believe that was the source of the noise, anyway... onto the important bit! I took it to RK Engineering in St Agnes who looked it over, basically HG had blown but not going into cylinders (could see small amount of residue coming from block after spraying compressed air, he then tighten the nearest head bolt to the leak which he said didnt look like it had been done up enough, after that he put K-seal through the system and ran it for a bit, I am now no longer losing coolant and can feel the power returning slightly, His prognosis was new HG sooner or later, also SC stripped with new belt and smaller pulleys and boosted, also advised Spacer with mk4 head gasket to lower compression, and finally because my 3rd gear is starting to mash up maybe a v5 or touran 6 speed gearbox. So thats where I'm at currently, He'd put the car up in the air and told me it was generally in good knick but with a lot of these show cars (or ex show cars) they haven't been given the service they require. Ive been told its about a 2 month wait to get the work done but he can do the gearbox earlier
  10. Update! - On the drive home from work today car began to overheat again - checked expansion tank and it was empty, filled her up and took it steady on the way home (about 10 miles) and the temp gauge was barely reaching 60 degrees - not sure what to check now, thermostat? would a worn out water pump stop coolant flowing correctly? i'll pull the radiator off on the weekend and check it over Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Was thinking of selling my seats can't seem to find any cream ones? Any ideas?
  12. Hopefully mate! Will park it in the garage next few evenings and see if I can see any puddles lol
  13. Just thought id update - Mechanic told me that some coolant hoses weren't tightened up enough and could see visible dripping from them, after flushing the coolant it was driven about and temp was back to normal, will be keeping a close eye on it though
  14. Thanks! I'm hoping it's just a gasket and I won't have to have the head skimmed! ??
