    Intercooler cleaning

    Hey guys id like to clean the intercooler on my diesel SUV , its been on the car for 5 years and did about 50k kms only but it lived through a bad turbo that was throwing oil .. Ive recently been getting black smoke at high Rpm .. already replaced the air filter and the Turbo but i still have...

    Black Smoke

    Catalyst is removed on my car , just silencers ... im not sure it even has O2 sensors since its a EURO 3 spec .. Based on the knock sensor readings the bad cylinders should be at the rear of the engine .. either 4th or 5th .. sadly no one seems to have the tools to measure compression on a...

    Engine bay temps

    oh thats alot cheaper than i expected , why did your one cost that much though ? or prices were crazy 5 years ago ? so lets say i wrapped the turbo .. its still just 1 item that generating crazy heat , theres the Downpipe and the exhaust manifold .. i know i can wrap the downpipe with wraps...

    Engine bay temps

    Brother TC , unfortunately i dont have a garage or such to shelter my car from Rain when its parked and it seems too troublesome to cover the car and uncover it daily in the rainy season .. also wouldnt stopping at stop lights or traffic jams count as parking ? i understand its not that big of...

    Engine bay temps

    thanks for the reply by raising the rear of the bonnet you mean to simple use some nuts and longer screws to have the rear end of the bonnet rise a few centimeters off the fenders and create a gap that would allow the air to escape ..... if thats correct then im afraid this isnt an option...

    Engine bay temps

    so since my car is a diesel and a remapped one with other mods on it , the temps in the engine bay tend to peak and one can barely touch anything in the engine bay after a few heavy runs , needless to say things get much worse while offroading and pushing the engine to its limits . i have...

    Why is the temp gauge in my car bouncing up and down and being erratic ?

    start by simple inspections , take a closer look at the coolant see if it has oil in it , look into the engine from where you fill oil , does it look like theres white matter in there ? .. im not familiar with your car but if theres a air/oil separator somewhere it could be jammed or in need of...

    Turbo flutter

    Good point , sadly i wont know until i get the part , theres no doubt that it will be getting less air that the Cone can , but the cone has no limits until you put a heatshield on it , the cold air intake is pretty much a cone filter inside a carbon housing with a 3inch pipe that connects it to...

    Turbo flutter

    yes without the remap not only will there be a drop in performance but it can also trigger a check engine light and cause the car to go limp

    Turbo flutter

    Regarding the cone filter , there really was no change on the performance for my car , But i should mention that it has no heat shield and sucks hot air from the engine bay , however an issue i had with both stock filter and K&N drop in filter is that once you really stress the engine you can...

    The Egr is Deleted both through the ECU and physically blocked from the EGR valve side and the Exhaust manifold side .. the Mods on the car are mainly a slightly bigger Intercooler made entirely of aluminum , bigger aluminum intercooler pipes , Bigger downpipe , Open pod filter and an aluminum...

    Turbo flutter

    its not a VGT , and its not exactly new ive had the flutter ever since the first Remap which was maybe 4 years ago , its alot louder and easier to trigger now that i have the Open pod instead of the simple drop in k&n filter , i cant trigger the flutter when the car is in neutral the more the...

    Turbo flutter

    Hmmm what i have is this , get the Rpm somewhere between 2.3-3 Rpm quickly then take your foot off completely , thats what when i get the flutter sound , cant hear it any other way (my car is an automatic one so theres no flutter when shifting like in a petrol car Heres a clip that has the...

    Turbo flutter

    im quite lost right now , bare with me i woud like to understand .. so theres no need for a dumb valve on my Rexton yet my Turbo flutters due to high boost from the Remap which is unhealthy (according to some) for the turbo and the way to get over that is with a Dump valve which isnt present on...
