nice. i love seeing old pics! you don't still have the mudflaps do you? i am going to rent a unit so i can work on this over the winter. busy hunting for parts for it at the moment! bit of a mission!!! i cant wait to get going on it. found a new wing and rear arch. replacement wing mirror and brand new 5 cyinder radiator.
Slow progress with the cars. I have started renting a unit to work on and store the santana and morris. I am driving to Wales this weekend to collect loads of nice rare goodies I will also be going to Portsmouth to collect my mk1. It has been at a g60 specialist having some tuning work done. I should finally know how much power it puts out and I won't be afraid to give it some.
Love the look of your tidied G60. Might have to pick your brains for a few tips. I see you have boost return deleted, does it make a constant whine off boost?
And is that an OCD sticker on your charger? How did you find them, worth using?
The rest of your stable is also mighty impressive.
Yeah sure. Pick away. I'm always happy to help if I can.
I didn't really have much choice with deleting the boost return. The rad is so close to the inlet that I couldn't fit the return on. I'd does whine constantly. Sounds great though! Haha. The main issue is the oily mist that the cam cover breather lets out. Usually it joins straight into the boost return pipe but I have to have it open. I will put a catch tank on at some point. The oil vapour makes a mess of the bay. Believe it or not, I use this car a fair bit and when a show comes along, it takes so long to clean the bay! And the car is low and does my back in. Makes me feel old! Haha.
Having used gwerks, jabba sport, dubforce tuning and a couple of other specialists, OCD is by far the best in my experience. Since this latest charger rebuild, I will only be using OCD from now on. Highly recommended by me and a few other people I know who have used them. Quality workmanship, deadlines met and friendly service. All the other specialists I used lacked most, if not all of these. Just my opinion anyway
The golf is nearly done to a stage where I can be happy and just use it. Starting to get more involved with the rest of the fleet now. Santana is up next!
Yeah I've heard about the mist issue. I think I'm gonna keep my boost return but tidy up the loom and ancillaries. Do you have the link to your build thread, the previous one just seemed to go to the home page.
I will keep the brain picking to PM, don't want to hijack your thread with lots of boring (for some) G60 chat. Gonna seriously consider OCD for my next rebuild though. Cheers.
Can't wait to see what happens with Santana. Please tell me you call it Carlos.
The Santana is called Eric. Sorry to disappoint you As in Eric cantona. But Eric Santana. I pronounce it weirdly when I call it Eric. Don't ask me why. Haha Previous owners called it Tina. It seems like a boy to me though.
