      Still have not got the file for you Doug. I will pull it tonight off the laptop and shoot it over. It is for non-VVT so it is going to be like your old file, a lot less going on.

      No rush sir! I actually can't get the VVT file to run so I run the car on a standard AWP file also. If I run the VVT file it shoots the o2 correction positive then negative like a seesaw from -20 to +20 until the car stalls.

      I was planning on trying it again after I nail down the MAF and fueling on the non-VVT file.

      This weekend I'll be visiting a friend but:

      Cluster is out to Module Master for a rebuild

      Evo DV came in and I've gotta take a trip to Max's to modify it to make it a MadMax valve

      Attempting a custom camber plate setup using Mk6 parts that probably involves a cutoff wheel and drill- parts on the way in

      Got everything to do a double pinned crank kit:





      DV placement concept- have the return facing the turbo. This is on the charge pipe to the right of the head:

      Damn.....

      I've wanted 500hp out of my car ever since I got it. I dont have the money or know-how to go messing around in those forbidden lands. Very nice, Doug.

      Follow up-

      my cheap Crapsman compressor tester is stuck in Cyn 4. Yup. So I was going to delay pulling the head, but it looks like that's happening now. It's only 2-3 hours of work and $100 in parts, but it's a pain in the ass and includes replacing all fresh fluids that I just put in the motor.

      fvck me

      Positive note- compression was around 200psi in all cylinders.

      Noooooooo, where in the world is the leak coming from? Hopefully it's a gasket not sealing because I'm not even ready for anything else, so I can only imagine how tired you must be of having issues. Let me know if you need a hand, Gaelle is on vacation till Thursday so I can dedicate some solid hours to help out.

      Looks to be headgasket. Turbo oil return and valve cover are both dry and I don't know of another oil source on the black of the block.

      Before the compression tester got stuck I obviously tested compression and re-torqued head studs to 80 ft/lbs which required about 1/8-1/4 turn for each bolt.

      Doug, are you using a straight copper gasket or a foam core one? This sucks hardcore man!

      Noah- I'm using the thicker one that Ed recommends. Pretty sure it's one thick layer of copper and two gaskets outside of it.

      I haven't checked the cam seals thanks for the idea... That makes sense cause I had them out recently but I did use new ones when replaced. Am I supposed to use sealant there?

      I just got home from mothers day shenanigans. I'm gonna sober up a little and try to get this pressure tester out. I do have a backup 12 pack for when failure occurs!

      Okay so this is how you get a stuck ****ty compression tester out.

      Step one: buy beer, smoke and grill meat. I did none of the cooking, just the eating and drinking.





      Step two: buy more beer, long 12" drill bit set.



      This is what we're working with:

      Hose broke off:



      This is left stuck in spark plug hole about 5" down:



      Drilled holes, cut socket, ratchet + extension = no more stuckness

      Thanks! I wonder if I can pop that large cam cap off and slide the seals out/apply sealant without pulling the TB off again? I'm gonna give it a try but TB takes 10 minutes. Pulling the head could have been hours- glad ya spotted that.

      Hey I work on BMW's which ALL leak oil.. I would start with removing the TB cover and inspect the cam gear area, also I know this might sound wierd but also check the area of the cam tensioner chain, leaks can migrate from one side of the engine to the other making it look like its leaking somewhere else when it isn't

      Audiguy84-- you were right. The hall sender cam seal was leaking badly. I removed it and it wasn't damaged so just put some sealant on it and bolted it all back together. Car ran tonight and ripped it around the neighborhood a little. Guess I'll pull the hall sender housing off and check it in a couple of days.

      gracias amigo!

      Note:

      Running the car with the MAF currently unplugged, it's about 400awhp is starting to hint and the necessity for a front LSD. Around very small bends my inside tire likes to spin through 3rd gear acceleration.

      So what should I save for- Haldex Blue/Orange or front LSD. Remember the car is daily driven so I'm not sure about the Orange and Haldex longevity.
