  1. mind me asking what kind of money they charge for a g60 8v head jonk?
  2. Lovely looking thing. Nice and clean under the arches. Do you ever drive the thing!! GLWS James.
  3. Hi Rob, Nice looking rallye. I'm very local to you i think. Just about to move to Chislehurst. Be taking my rallye with me so may see you around...
  4. Hi Dan, pretty sure we met up at Lee's the other week when i was collecting some bits for my rallye. I think i have the same brakes as you on mine. Always thought they were rears rather than fronts though. I am running a standard master cylinder and servo and whilst the pedal is pretty solid the car stops well. There must only be about 10mm of travel. The issue (with mine at least) is that the porsche calipers have only a slightly larger pad face than the standard G60's. I've just bought some seat cupra calipers and disks to swap on instead as i had these previously and they were amazing. Same size disks and direct bolt on too.
  5. I have one £120 as they are getting harder to find and £300 new plus if mine goes I will be paying top dollar im based Stansted Essex 07891494448 thanks

  6. As title, need a 90 amp g60 alternator pretty urgently! Must be exactly this model. Based in SE London, can collect from wherever as long as its not an absolute stomp away or will obviously pay postage. Thanks James.
  7. New VW Blue temp sensor = No difference   The saga continues
  8. Will do. Its probably the only thing i haven't replaced for new. For 20 quid or whatever it is i guess it's worth doing. I was lead to believe that when the car is warm if you disconnect it and the revs dip then it's okay. Do they go gradually?    May also swap the leads for a vw new set. There's every chance the ones on it are very old.   Forgot to add i have also changed the plugs for new WP's too.
  9. So having had a lot of experience of the many ways in which a g60 can decide to run like a dog I thought I'd ask the good people of Dubforce what they think. I can cancel a lot of the classic issues off the list so hopefully narrowing down the problem. Had the Rallye (original h1 engine on about 79,000 miles) on the road now for 9 months or so. Having had it down with James at Dubforce the car ran brilliantly. It had 440cc injectors installed and one of his chips to suit. Although it ran nicely It needed a new lambda so had one of those as well. The drive home saw some spirited driving and temps all sat where they need to be. Roll on 2 weeks later and I'm taking it to a local show. Go to start it to go home and it's massively over fuelling. Barely made it home and stank of fuel. So I decide to put back the standard injectors and chip and change lambdas again. Runs perfectly for about 30 seconds then chugs away again and goes into safe mode. So I unplug the lambda and hey presto, the car runs pretty well. Not able to sense the exhaust gases but I can run around very nicely indeed. Oil temp sits at around 82 as opposed to 100 or so which I'd put down to how rich it is. Been running it like this for a few months very occasionally just short journeys. I then decide to take the car to my folks' in Norfolk at the weekend and half way into the 80 mile journey it starts juddering on the motorway having sat at 70-80 for some time and at idle it's chugging like its on 3 cylinders and smelling of fuel again. It made the rest of the journey but at about 60 with he odd Rev to clear the fuel build up. It now runs exactly the same with lambda plugged or unplugged to make things more interesting. It does seem to run a little better when it's cooled down. Basically it's now running like it did when the lambda was plugged in stinking of fuel. So I've checked the following- 1m hose is new and on correct nipple Has a new dizzy cap and arm Compression is spot on Revs die but just recover when the bts is connected so should be okay? Timing is at 6degs- unchanged from James setting it. Swapped a spare ecu in and runs exactly the same Injector loom was checked and replaced when the injectors were swapped. 3 earths on the side of the head were corroded so replaced connectors Swapped in a vag g60 coil Any light you can shed would be great I'm thinking it might just be easier to go for standalone management to avoid the constant sensor nightmare you seem to have with a g60! James.
  10. So i'm about to install air ride onto my rallye- sorry i know its not the done thing but just works for my situation.   Anyway, as rallye rears are different to the standard mk2 struts i'm using the airlift universal type struts which i have already. I will need to weld these to the correct length and i was wondering if anyone has any pointers as to how to do it? They come with a sleeve that you cut to length and then weld the standard    I take it i'll need to work out the aired out and up positions and ensure that the aired out doesn't mean the wheel wants to push up too high and murder the inner arch...   There looks to be a lot of travel- possibly up to 200mm +   I'm running rallye coilovers so was thinking i could use the ride height i'm at and measure the strut position to get a decent idea before cutting away...   Any help gratefully received.   James.

    Try unplugging the lamabda. I need to fix my lambda but for the meantime running it unplugged prevents it going into 'safe mode' and chucking out black smoke. Still juicy but not too bad.   If it solves the issue you know that's where to target.
  12. Texting you now mate.   All good though. Plenty of changes due come the shows this year.

  14. I have for sale a pair of rear airlift slam series rear air struts. Covered sub 3000 miles from new and are 100% operational. Visually they look pretty much new. These are £729 new as shown in the last picture Offers around £500
