Good morning, cheers for sorting Tim. Good to see some nice runs too.
I've only just got it back, so I'm hardly going to do a three hour round trip in it before the stuff goes on.You can't come cos you're doing something on a different day ? PMSL.
Mines been collected, so I should be aiming to be at SRR about 10.
Literally no idea. Previous owner took it to Audi and they told him it was standard. Never driven another one so no idea how slow they are with only 330 horses pedalling it along haha !!
It was nice to meet a few new faces on Saturday, thank as always to Tim for organising.
My slightly odd dyno figure doesn't, at first glance, seem to be boost related so I'm booked in to Ford on Monday for them to have a look at it.
I think that I may well have found a new way to break the recall fix-all head gasket LOL
It's 300% had a map and probably a pulley, possibly even a gearbox map, but I'll never know.Haha bloody hell that's a large increase! Definitly had a map I reckon. Audi probably wouldn't be able to tell unless they had the standard ECU file in front of them to compare it against..

Someone's saved me ~£3k at MRC/Revo anyway ?
It's going in on Monday for them to give it a visual once over. The tech they and I want to work on it is unavailable for two weeks after that.
It drives just fine, MPGs are where they should be, it feels punchy enough, but it's weeping oil from the very edge of the head gasket. Does that mean HG failure?
Not sure gasket not seating correctly did they SKIM the head?
They didn't do anything to it as it was a complete factory supplied engine, turbo, clutch, and intake manifold included.
I hope it's something simple. Mind you, I'll take another engine so long as they give me a fresh 5yr/100k warranty on it.
