Ya i would have loved to see the Tdi ! I'm sure the kids would be more then happy to drive one of your cars when they can !
Impressive. A calculated 1200km+ on one tank...ralleyquattro said:Finally the tools have arrived and the motor is timed properly, with the tools it is very easy to time it.
Third tank of gas was as before 910km with 53L of diesel.
Now that it's aligned properly I am already at 310km and only 1/4 of a tank down!
Still waiting for the chip though.
What number do you use?MJF said:Timing would be much accurate when adjusting with gauge, no need for vagcom.
Hey... that nice-looking 3-bolt flange there... the back half looks like an OE part but the front looks new. Do you know of a place to buy those things - as in, the flared pipe ends, donuts, and the flange - new?ralleyquattro said:More progress:
Finished the downpipe and connected rest of the exhust, the ear section still needs to be welded, but it's tacked together for now.
the oil-pumps are all the same, look:ralleyquattro said:I am however having issues with oil pressure, I connected oil pressure gauge and only getting 1/2bar at idle and only 2bar at 2000rpm.
It is good enough to pass the min spec, but that's the lowest I've seen on an I5.
Strangly the TDI oil pump is different (Part number) than any other I5 offered over here so I am not sure if I can use any generic pump.
From the outside they look the same, but clearly the part number is different for some reason.
