  1. I'd check/replace the o-ring on the idle screw on the throttle body first, then replace the blue sender (swapping to the black one isn't good enough to rule it out completely). ISV clean would also be a good idea
  2. Yeah looking for some storage / workshop, but problem is cost really as it makes a hobby really expensive when you're forking out each month just to put a roof over the cars. Best bet is to buy another house with a big garage and then rent the house out I guess, but for some reason developers over the years have focused more on the living space than the size of the garage !? 😂 I guess I should have a poke about on facebook if I'm needing to sell lots of bits, but always found it lacks any sort of organisation and 'threading' like you get on the forums, so unless someone sees your item in the first 5 minutes before it disappears off the bottom of the page I'm not sure how people are supposed to find stuff.
  3. Not been on here in ages, so I'm as guilty as anyone, but not being a facebook / instagram user I find the slow death of the forums such a shame [yes I know this has been covered many times before] Scrolling down the homepage on here and seeing pretty much nothing dated after 2017/18 genuinely made me feel sad Was just going through some of the how-to's too and most of the links / pics are dead, which is a massive shame as I learnt so much from forums over the years, there was such a wealth of knowledge that just seems to have been lost. I sell quite a few bits on ebay and the dumb ass questions I get asked everyday seems to prove that all anyone does these days is look at pretty pictures - I had a Jetta bench up for sale and got loads of questions; Yoof of today - "Will this straight fit in a Golf?" [no preamble, that would be too much strain on the fingers clearly] Me - "Hi, no it is a Jetta bench so would require mods to fit in a Golf, Cheers" Yoof - "Oh right, what would I have to do?" Seriously?! Firstly, who the hell has a Mk2 Golf and doesn't know the difference between Golfs and Jettas and secondly, why are people incapable of doing any research themselves!? Oh and yes I know I'm insulting everyone and their dog by writing 'Yoof', but it seems easier to presume these idle people with inane questions are young, while in actual fact Golfs are bloody expensive these days so they're probably not young at all... Besides this isn't posted on facebook so no-one will read it anyway 😆 Anyway, bit of an old man rant for someone in their 30s, but I'm losing my workshop in the coming months and have neither the money nor the time to carry on with old Vdubs really so feeling a bit miserable. Hopefully this self driving / electric car 'revolution' will die a death and this isn't the last few years of driving classic cars, otherwise I'm gonna be really pissed off when I'm in my 40s 😆 Big thanks to whoever keeps this site running by the way 👍
  4. Shame, phenomenal wheels ... but yes that style of centre cap has always been difficult to come by
  5. Looks pretty cool. Lots of work for a niche market
  6. Enjoyed that, thanks for sharing. Prices are going to go up now that they've drawn attention of course
  7. Yeah, so same issue old issue with the 580mm rad. Easiest solution would be to send the Golf intercooler back and get the Rallye one, chop your towing eye out and bang a 630mm rad in :p Re core could be best alternative, don't think it costs that much.
  8. I think Wagner only do the Rallye intercooler don't they which they call a 'Golf G60 Intercooler'? You can use a 630mm rad with a Rallye 'cooler and a 580mm rad with the Golf 'cooler. If you measure up you will see which one fits. The 630mm rad is readily available for about 90quid I think, but when I was looking (admittedly a couple of years ago) the 580mm was very difficult to find and much more expensive. I'm going to be fitting my Wagner 'cooler into my Corrado soon (with a 630mm rad), so would be interested in some pics of yours if you have any? I think you have to chop out the towing eye and mount to make it fit? Cheers
  9. I think the easiest way to do it is to put it in the oven for 20 mins, think I put mine on gas mark 3 .. bearings just fell out
  10. Located in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. 0773068206two I would prefer cash on collection for this please, but I could wrap it if you arrange a courier. Had no intention of selling this on, but I've owned it quite a while now and it's not looking like it will make it onto an engine any time soon... So, here we have my BBM Lysholm charger (gen 1) that has not been run since I had it rebuilt by BBM (see pic of receipt). Rebuild was for peace of mind (and I was obviously feeling flush at the time). The previous owner ran this on a 16v so it has a plate to blank off the 16v breather and an oil return pipe screwed in. I also sourced a vacuum operated bypass valve which is included. Basically, what you see is what you get :) The silencer kit is all there, apart from gaskets and a few silicone joiners. This is the Corrado kit, so there are two pipes to go to the standard wing mounted intercooler, but easily adapted for a front mount. Also included is a mount for the rear of the charger (the black painted bracket) which will overcome the risk of the charger flexing/twisting when using the silencer kit. I do not want to split the charger from the silencer kit. Price is £1650ovno Any questions please ask.
  11. Is the throttle body operating correctly? i.e: all the butterflys are turning fully.   You still have the ISV fitted?   What chip are you using? Those slight mods will mean you will need a modified one.
  12. Low compression on one cylinder isn't going to directly affect the boost produced by the charger as that is driven by the belt. Remember you will be measuring the pressure in the manifold / boost pipes which is affected by the flow of the engine; what is the engine spec?
