Superchargers / G-Lader / Supercharger pulley. Is it loose?
« Last post by Baggylee on August 13, 2019, 11:14:32 pm »
Hi, new to this so looking for some input please? My charger is making a rattling noise which I assume is not right? When I removed the belt I note the pulley does move in/out easy but the bolt seems tight. Should the pulley have play or not?

Cheers

You’ll have the same problem trying to get rings from accralite. Iv been chasing a set for 6 months. I can get you part number for the accralite ones. Think I might end up buying a set of wossner so I can get cracked on.

i would also check the resistance of you CO pot on the top boost pipe as this is used to change the richness of the engine on tick over. there is a thread on here that tells you the correct ohms to begin with then you can adjust this at an mot station to correct it to get it to the desired reading.

yeah they're a pain those clips.  I've done the same as you in the past, remove the radio (or whatever you have in the radio hole, I have an AFR meter and an oil pressure gauge in there) to get access to one side then get some limited access to the other side by removing the headlight switch.

Electrical / instrument panel removal
« Last post by Big Eric on August 08, 2019, 05:59:33 pm »
HI There,
              When removing the instrument panel assembly, according to the haynes book of lies and omissions you just pop the
              special tool or equivalent into the four holes and bingo the instrument panel should just pop out. So what do you do
              if it wont come out? The panel is held in place by spring steel clips which spring out and lock the panel in place, so when
              you pop in the release tools the springs are forced inwards so that the panel clears the panel aperture for removal. The
              problem i had was when the removal tools were inserted instead of forcing the retaining springs inwards the tools
              went under the springs and forced them further out because the spring clips were not in alignment with the tool
              access holes.  What kinell do i do now? access at the back of the panel nil, remove the Facia panel!! fortunately at
              the time i had removed my old CD/Radio, I managed to get my hand through the radio access hole and compress
              the nearest springs and fit the retaining spring tools in.That gave me enough clearance to remove the Instrument
               Panel.So fellow G owners ask yourself do I rely need to remove the instrument Panel?

Engine and Transmission / Re: Power figures

If more than 200hp is possible I'll look in to it at a later date. And i fully agree, VW didn't design injectors to run at 90% and  make standard power. Hopefully the Dyno will tell all this afternoon.

His figures are a bit off.  For example, a G60 is 160bhp in a 1.8l engine as standard so there's no way g60 injectors are only any good for 160bhp.  It's a crude comparison but then simply rating injectors by bhp is crude anyway.  You can use 310cc injectors which are good for 200+ bhp.  But if you don't plan on doing more than you've listed there.  I have 315cc injectors on mine with the standard fuel pressure reg.
