    coins??? parking who what nows???? did we go back to the 90's?


    seriously though, they have always lived in my speed cluster, as this van for as long as I can remember had no ash tray. Dad installed aftermarket electric windows really early on and the switch panel was in place of the ashtray.....I always thought it was a stock item back in the day. nope.
    Once the switches were removed and it was just a gaping hole in the dash it became my maccas cup holder......just squeeze the sides in and rest it on the wiring loom below :confused:

    Back to Leon's today to tend to a stutter which is assumed to be just some fouled plugs due to running rich.......so the run in oil is coming out, new filter in and oil in, Leaky temp sender sealed up and the final Vacuum leak free tune happening this week.

    Then off to Lamington on Monday morning for some camping and walking of the bush. should be nice and wet.

    Yep, air cooled. When these thing spring a leak in the air cooling system they don't leave an embarrassing wet patch. And they don't run out of coolant, plenty of free spare air out there. :D:D:D

    Camping trip cancelled due to shitty weather, and the national park being closed atm because of said shitty weather.......probably a good thing, intermitent stutter down low and at idle is still there. Getting onto Leon motors tomorrow about some answers........it runs real nice when it's not missing.....

    Can Leon do an upgrade and drop a WBX into it for you? ;)

    Talked to andrew down there.... got a little short with him to be honest. I'm heading there after 5 this arvo to do a street tune and determine the actual problem. fingers crossed it all comes good.

    I can understand why it would be hard not to bite.

    This was the original plan..... then I decided against all the radiator nonsense..... But then, I dont like subi motors either

    Assumption is it's the coilpack, his Oscilloscope is non existent atm so we couldnt test it, but nothing we did while street tuning fixed it and it's only getting worse.......New coilpack has already been ordered, fingers crossed.

    Alive and well. It's been a busy week of driving, eating, celebrating and vw shows.

    Coil pack went in on Thursday and fixed the issue straight away.
    Next step is an oil thermostat so it actually reaches some sort of running temp on short trips, a better idle control motor and another tuning tweak...then I'll be 100% happy with the engine. :cool:
