    So when you put the Bosch MAS back on was the car still running incorrectly or was it just the codes would reaper but there was actually nothing wrong with the car so just a IT error so to speak ?

    It ran a lot better with the Bosch MAF (it was stalling with the JP). However it had a vacuum leak on the baffle box near the isv which wouldn't have helped.

    Fiddled with the exhaust some more but think the knocking was something else - the shield around the fuel tank was in touching distance of the axle. Didn't get a chance to drive as went do a 5 min job to refit the front bumper on the other car that turned into a 3 hour job.

    Just read the ten pages of your thread, nice work!
    I recently acquired a 95 VR6 and I am at the stage to gather parts before the "big cleanup" like you've done.
    So you are happy with the 263 cams? Did you chip it as well?
    BTW, I always wanted a white Corrado but they are so rare, never seen a VR6 in white, only a G60 once.

    Keep up the good work, cheers!

    Hey ABV,

    Good luck with your journey, they are great cars. I've not had a car get under my skin as the Corrado.

    The 263s are perfect for a road car. They give a big lump of torque between 2-4krpm and maintain the original surge after 4krpm. I had mine remapped at Stealth (they did the mechanical work) to 220hp but it's the midrange that makes it fly. It feel muscular from the off where as before it felt I had to rev it beyond 4k to feel interesting.

    It is nice in white but the corrado looks great in all colours. Such a great shape. Irreplaceable to me. Shame all my photos have disappeared from this thread.

    Thanks for your reply! And I agree with you, the Corrado gets under your skin!
    About the 263s after reading your post and some reviews, I think I may go this way as well. For my needs and what I want performance wise, it seams to meet my expectations.
    Mine is silver, I like that as well... I was lucky to score a stock one with 105km. So stock still has the OEM speakers lol

    Sounds good ABV and similar to mine (it was bone stock). I've changed a few bits - Bilstein B12 suspension, R32 rear front wishbone bushes and an exhuat on top of the cams. Mainly becuase the old stuff was worn out but aside from that it is stock.

    Whilst the 263s are fitted you;d may as well change the timing chains if not already. These are recommended by owners to be done at the 100k mark. Whilst going to that effort I had the head off and refurbed and all new bits fitted plus of course a new head gasket.

    Yes mate, I'm going straight that way. That's why I enjoyed reading your thread so much, you went down the path I'm going to walk... I don't need to drive the car, it's going to be a weekend car... So my plan is to pull the engine out this winter. Once that's done, I'll start with a huge cleanup of the engine bay and then new chains, new clutch kit, sensors, all bushings, refurbed head, new brakes all around, H&R coilover etc... I'm thinking of doing all the work over a year or two, I want to take my time to make it as best possible.

    Cheers!

    Hello pfnsht/ABV-V6

    Going through these posts has been great, another recent VR6 owner going through the same thought process!!

    pfnsht - what kind of cost do I need to allow for the stealth visit, chains/guides/clutch/suspension/R32 arms/head gasket approx?

    Hi v11boy, you can add another going through a similar process at the same time. Seems there's a little group of us now!

    For Stealth costs as a rough guide, mine came to not far south of £3k. It's a fair knock to the wallet, and I tried to save on labour by stripping down the block myself and am doing most of the rebuild, incl. chains and cams. But I also had cylinders re-bored and the new pistons were a big chunk of that. If you're getting the full lot done by Stealth, without the pistons but with suspension etc, I think you might want to budget at least 3-5k... Certainly not a cheap process!
