So the GTI 6 is coming along nicely now, its been over with Rich Walker a few times and he has done some great work on it in the last 5 months.
The first visit last year to have some niggly bits finally sorted.
The wiring under the bonnet was checked and re-done where necessary then tidied up nicely:
Aluminium extension piece welded to the throttle body and correct filter fitted as well as a general under bonnet spruce up:
It now runs and idles much better.
New radiator fitted and charger cooler relocated and all cooling systems mounted properly on brackets:
Furthermore the following work has now been completed:
- Change engine oil & filter Silkolene Pro R 20W50 & OEM Peugeot Oil Filter
- Weber 3 Bar FPR
- NGK BKR7EIX Spark Plugs
- Bosch OEM Lambda Sensor
- Top engine mount welded/chocked
- Various Oil & coolant leaks sorted
- New Bosch 044 fuel pump and relay/wiring
Then last month it was over to Rich again to have the gearbox swapped, it now has KAD straight cut gears with phosphor-bronze bushings fitted along with new driveshaft seals, clutch for bush and OE Peugeot gear oil.
Oh and it now has a Satchshift which is decent:
The straight cut 3rd & 4th gears sound epic and altogether the car now drives very well, it's very quick.
Track day to do list:
- extended gearbox breather setup
- 4 pot brakes
- coilover suspension
- new tyres
