Thanks mate, never get the chance to get over to VW/TPS however with my working hours, especially not with 2 days notice!

Well annoyed with GSF selling carlube oil now, as they deliver to my work, I get trade prices but teh oil and fluids are now pap!

Add one headgasket



Mix in a head, shrick cam and some cam lobe lubricant



Et voila, a smoke free engine :-)



Just need a new charger feed line as mine snapped. Doh! Pondering over pilfering it off the grey g tomorrow but it means dismantling my only working car =/

What gasket are you using? a genuine g40 one? and where did you buy the cam lube?

Yup a polo aex headgasket made by elrin. Was about 18 quid from gsf.

Camlube came from ben (popdragin) off cp, he did my head rebuild for me :-) from a gt head with double valve springs and a set of g40 exhaust valves

Borrowed the grey g's oil feed line today, cars driving well so im pleased. Gotta look at re-hanging the exhaust as its knocking alot. Nice to be back in it tho!

Couple of pics inc guages and afm. Has anyone got a yellow vdo oil temp guage going spare?

Couple of pics from the manc union meet last sunday





Tucked up in the unit tonight as I got the grey g back on the road (jon sorted me out a charger feed line) and its now wearing the exips.

Fitting the hnr cup kit this weekend, along with rose jointed steering arms and tca's.

Also undersealing the inner wings and refitting the inner arch liners now I'm positive the boost hoses wont pop off and the oil cooler is free of leaks ( all hidden by arch liners )

Gotta weld up the battery tray and prime and paint the inside too so gonna be busy, but once thats done Ill be sure.the inside is leak free and ready for dynamat and carpet.

Anyway I've been toying with the idea of the interior. Stick with the original striped seats or stick the mk3 g seats in?
