Again terrific right up Ryan.

 

When I first saw the first photo above, I thought something was twisted, melted or just very broken, and not the same thing as the other two photos above!

 

I will surly run like a new engine after you have done all that to the head!

Ok guys got some more done today.

 

New fuel filter fitted

Now after some final checks it was time to fire up the engine, being the type of fuel system fitted it should be a self bleed but my god it did not want to know!

 

I connected the laptop up and I had 73 codes logged to which I was not surprised due to the anount of work that had been done and power had been connected half way though lol, I deleted all the codes and then decided to run a full bleeding procedure to which worked very well, I could hear all the air that was trapped moving and bleeding via the leak off. The process took around 6 min to bleed at 4.5 bar from the pump

And the engine ( which is like the car very very dirty and needs a bloody good clean)

I have had the engine running for around 1 hr and good as gold, no fault codes stored as well.

 

Not finished yet but will carry on tomorrow with up dates and a reading of my DPF pressure to see if my flushing helped.

Looking at that picture you would never know that the engine has just recovered from open heart surgery and that it's innards were lying over the floor being cleaned out.

 

Thats a satisfying picture, well done.

Maybe I missed something but why did you have to programme the most ring?

Your guess is as good as mine lol lol.

 

I think it lost its code as it has had the battery disconnect for a few months

Ok guys so no work to the car again for a week or so as house work calls lol.

 

I did start her this morning in the workshop as started on the button and sounds sweet 

 

Only thing I not happy about is the 3 vac lines that run over the turbo, the vac pipe I got is a bit to tight and around 8.5mm think so a bit bulky.

 

I have ordered some 3.5mm with only 7mm O\D. Once here I will re do with a little how to guide as it's a comment issue.
