  1. Do you have proof of the map? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Managed to get it working but when I was doing up the 8mm bolts my spanner slipped hit the white plug and it stopped so hit it again and it started working again so thinking it's a loose wire under the cover going to get it back off again 2moz and check everything but when it stopped working the fan came on so they are connected somehow if anyone has the same kind of problem in future Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I've had the multi meter out I have 12v at the pump drops to 10.5v when cranking the engine and I've put the pump straight to to battery and it spins so going to check the plug in the morning see if that's making a good connection crank sensor is brand new only couple weeks ago when I was chasing another problem same as cam sensor Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Alcatek ecu

    So after 2 months of chasing the problem with my car finally found out the ecu was the problem all along I have a alcatek ecu which I've been using for the past year not a problem until this but if I put my original ecu in runs fine so does anyone know anywhere I could send it to get the bored check/fixed or is it easier to get a new one thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Suspected head problem

    So the rebuild has began and noticed a few things the timing is off by one tooth on the right side of the engine could that have caused the problems I've been having couldn't see any problems with the head on that side exhaust valves looked burnt but no cracks not got the other side off yet but pistons look fine no movement with them and the cylinders walls are very clean think it was rebuilt not that long ago I have some v3 sti heads to put back on will it start and run with them Ill be booking in for a map once it's built Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Suspected head problem

    I wasn't 100% confident in the gauge that was used as it's old but did it again with engine cold and and 3 of them were 85-90psi and cylinder 3 was 50psi both tests were done twice and with throttle open was going to do a leak down test today but decided to just rebuild now get it over and done with :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Suspected head problem

    Just strange how it starts up idles fine and drives fine at 1st and it's not using oil or smoking Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Suspected head problem

    That's what I've been thinking been trying to put it off but just picked up some v3 sti heads and going to get engine out in couple days and inspect it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Suspected head problem

    All cylinders are down on compression three at 100-110psi and cylinder closest to turbo is 60psi the last 2 are different colour they look burnt it's been misfiring like a pig under 3000rpm but I've got no smoke coming from exhaust and I've not lost any oil and plugs are clean changed them couple weeks ago think I've got to take engine out and inspect the heads not looking good but good time to upgrade I suppose Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Been trying to get to the bottom of my problem after some help please guys car drives fine for the 1st 3-4mins then get major hesitation/back fires on pull off and any gear below 3000rpm after that drives normal until I try to apply boost can creep up the rev range fine swapped every sensor can think of and spent countless hours searching internet for things to try until I did compression test which wasn't good news just took manifold off to look at exhaust valves as people seem to have the valve guide slip took pics if anyone could look at them and point me in the direction to go next as all look fine to me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Rear subframe removal uk2000

    Yh you can do if you remove all bolts around the diff and aslong as none of the suspension parts are in the way it's abit fiddly but can be done only 4 bolts use lots of wd40 and a big bar they are tight Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
