  1. Hi, whats the make of the flywheel?

  2. As long as you know what you're doing ;) Need anything let me know, machining wise, advice etc
  3. CV only make noise on full lock. Go for the wheel bearings dude.
  4. I take it only makes the noise when you do full lock? Should be a clicking sound. Sounds like a wheel bearing to me. You can jack it up and spin it and it feels fine, but sometimes they don't make any noise until they have some weight on them.
  5. Nope, I sent it back to the chap I bought it off. Crap workmanship that's all I'm saying.
  6. Anytime. I can do the machining, balancing, re-build....anything you want.
  7. You can't learn about how to build an engine correctly over a few weeks on a forum. I'm not being harsh, I'm being realistic. He doesn't know what he's doing and it will end up costing him more money. I've offered him help, so I'm not being harsh at all. For the record my name isn't Paddy, nor do you have to use VW sealant. High temp RTV silicon is what he needs. If you don't know what you are talking about then don't second guess or miss inform people, because that's how mistakes happen.
  8. Oh dear, please stop now. What have you even used for the sump, bathroom sealant?! You use a decent RTV silicone. Are you going to plastigauge the bearings? I can't imagine you are. Why don't you leave the engine building to us professionals?
  9. You drilled the sump while it was still bolted to the engine.....oh dear Anyway, the question is what is your budget? They are an easy engine to work on, I'd suggest take the engine out and do it properly, as the standard 4efe clutch won't hold the power anyway so you'll have to take the box out. I build performance and race engines. If you need any advice or help drop me a PM. That crank will be fine by the way with a fettle. Matthew
  10. Are you sure? Is that gauge compatible with the wide band sensor you have bought? I think that's where your problem lies.
  11. Are you sure you have bought a wide band gauge and not a narrow band?
  12. Are you sure it's a wideband sensor and not a narrow band?
  13. Seems a lot of hassle, you'd have to change the oil feed, return, water lines, downpipe, intake, i/c pipe etc etc Would just be better buying a manifold with a external wastegate exit already built in. Not only that but the turbo will sit really low down, did they even think about the oil return into the sump?
