Loc: under the car
Not been on for a while busy with house, anyway now the winter is closing in i decided to rebuild the engine in my golf to a better spec for more power.



This is my new tubular exhaust manifold with a flange ready to take a Garrett GT28 ball bearing turbo, iam also adding new JE ceramic coated pistons to lower the compression ratio to 8.5:1, these will also have new forged rods for strength.
Bigger 440cc injectors are being fitted too so the fueling dose'nt drop off and melt any pistons!!

This spec should let me run 325bhp a 1.2bar boost, and keep reving to about 7k

Will keep thread posted with pics of progress wink

New Brakes

These are 305mm in size and vented,
the calipers are Brembo 4 pots,
will change the discs for X-drilled when i get chance.




Also put the manifold in place to check for spacing.

happy Thanks, its taken a few years of doing it to get to this stage and iv'e learn't from mistakes!!


Managed to get the head back on tonight and torque down the 10 head bolts in the right sequence, sorted out the timing but dropped the F*@in mad bolt for the tensioner so need a new one know!!

Bought 2L of paint aswell so i can repaint the rear where iv'e removed the badges and smoothed, also got 2 new doors to repaint.

Cheers
