Well another year, another MOT! passed first time with just an advisory for a minor exhaust leak. Not worried about this at all, Its only referring to a couple of pinholes and theres no sound of blowing at the moment.
Fitted a newsouth TDI boost gauge for the full 90s max power effect! Fitted really as a gimmick but its actually very interesting (and distracting) to watch how the turbo is controlled! The boost hose take off goes straight into the side of the EGR delete pipe.
Also suffered a minor fuel leak through the rubber pipe delivering fuel to the tandem pump. It gave the engine bay a liberal coating of diesel while it was at it! Replaced all the rubber fuel hoses to prevent any future issues.
Also replaced the coolant flange with a new part and seal that was previously bodged with sealant to keep it on the road!
Other than that the miles have racked up pretty much faultlessly. Really loving the suspension as well. makes the car feel just right, maybe a little stiff round town but more than makes up for it once you get some speed up!
