Car Running Great Now


Recommended Posts

Was not pleased with the power the charger was putting out before, but when I first took it out for a test drive I did not have the rubber seal for the air intake.

My good friend Stav sorted me out with the seal I needed.

But all was still not great , was not sure if I was expecting to much. So I got in contact with Steve D the original owner of the charger, to come and have a look.

We went out for a test drive this afternoon and he said it was not as it should be.

Took it back to my garage and adjusted the rubber hoses and the clips.

Was loosing preasure from two of the hoses.

Went back out for another test drive and :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

Cant get the smile of my face now.

So thanks again to all the guys who made this happen, Steve , Gord , Stav & Chris :D :D :D

Oh yes and Mrs Mole for letting me :lol: :lol:

Glad your happy mate, which pipes was it?

See thats your excuse to def get a boost gauge so you can keep tabs on it all.

Stav

It was the pipe on the drivers side at the bottom going into the intercooler and the one next to the induction kit filter

Will be going to get some silicon hoses to replace them :whistling:

TDi have some hoses for the supercharger kit here. Don't know if you can get them elsewhere, e.g. whether Prolex can get hold of them ? Might be worth asking.

I would say so because without it the top of the engine is wide open to contaminants like dust etc

Completely right mate, It depends on the induction kit really, its perfectly safe with the big black TTE airbox & some other induction kits that have a hose going straight over as the air will be filtered :)
