  1. Couldn't you drill and retap, or use a helicoil Tony? If you get stuck I've got a spare set of mk4 rears
  2. yep i made a similar tool using wiper blade metal inserts - takes a bit of time to make but because the connectors are just so small it is still pretty fiddly to de-pin them. Useful post Keyo on the vw headlights relay - where or how is this wired up? Is there a slot on the relay panel it can plug into? Would be ideal if it does! Thanks for sharing. Btw it looks like this relay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283740920408
  3. yep absolutely. I have been chasing the rattles in my car for about 10 years now and there are still loads there - one is the damn plastic strip on top of the doorcard that i cant find a proper solution for. Anyway, your cars do look absolutely great - nice touch to show a video as well as some pics.
  4. Good to know some are still around. Does seem a shame that Rams' has changed hands so much. It did look superb when he had it.
  5. How much would you be looking for for the H&Rs Keyo? Any pics by any chance?
  6. These and the LM reps really do look good.
  7. Many thanks for that. I think i'll go out and buy every single one on the shelf and hoard them! Seriously though, did he mention any specific advantages, or indeed did you notice any difference? Just for my understanding..
  8. Great pics and an interesting update. Just to clarify, the Bosch plugs Vince suggests under a schrick are these ones:FR7KPP33+? When i fitted my schrick i replaced my old ones with the NGKs, wish i'd known about these before. Never mind, next service change...
  9. Just wondering the whereabouts of any of these again. Would be nice to see some pics if the owners are on here

    VR6 Baffled sump?

    Many thanks Shaun. Did you need to get the oil conditioner sensor too or was the sump completely sealed? Also, did you use the original sump gasket or just some sealant?
  11. you could get the 2.8 cylinders bored out to 2.9 and then you'd have a basically brand new block. Not sure how much a machine shop would charge but i believe its not prohibitive, maybe someone with experience could advise. You could then just use your normal 2.9 pistons. I have to say they obd2 conversion and using an AAA intake manifold instead of the ABV did really improve the day to day driving of my car. The schrick does help too, but that was a big investment! As Swiftkid says the midrange improves immensely, but tbh I didnt really notice much top end difference

    VR6 Baffled sump?

    Is this the right part number for a cast sump? Also, is it a direct fit or any other mods needed? Trying to identify the leak source in my car.. Doesn't help that i painted the block black either...
  13. I was wondering if it was already too far gone but respect for having taken it apart this far
  14. I'm sure it will be excellent, plus it looks like a nice tidy job there. Insulation on the condenser pipe looks good too - mine is the original and looks a mess!
