Recently bought a Gti 6 which was advertised as spares or repairs. Stripped it down to find 8 bent exhaust valves. After reassembling it all it try's to fire but won't quite start. It's got a spark and it's getting fuel. Any suggestions? Crank sensor looks new. Cheers

Easy suggestion is to check the inertia switch hasn't tripped? Red button by the ECU. I think it cuts the fuel so probably isn't the cause but worth checking anyway

how are you checking it's "getting fuel"?

can you physically see fuel being forced out of the feed line when disconnected from the rail?

(i.e. - pipes are not wrong way around?)

When you were rebuilding, did you remember to reattach the cylinder head? I can't count the number of times I've fallen foul of this simple mistake. Well worth a quick check: it can stop the engine from firing.

Timing was out so far that it wouldn't start and you didn't bend valves?
