Re: Potentially selling need advice

Quick update the wheels are Rays Victrix 18 inch in black with the silver rims. Good condition but they need a clean (which i'll likely do myself)

Re: Potentially selling need advice

Re: HELP! engine rattle

I'd get the magnatec out of there to start with. It's not great oil to begin with & isn't recommended for turbo use. Get some synthetic 5w-40 like Mobil1 or Shell Helix Ultra. With that lower boost you could still also run a decent 5w-30. Have you looked at the throttle body? You didn't damage ...

Re: HELP! engine rattle

Right the update! I got the car back now and the rattle starts as you put your foot on the throttle. It stops as it revs up but when you take your foot off the throttle and the revs die down to 2000 ish the rattle comes back. It seems the rattle is at the top of the engine towards the back. Any idea...

Re: HELP! engine rattle

Just spoke with the tuning place and they've been reading a lot into it. They reckon its possibly the vvti. Does anyone here think that could be a possibility? Or has anyone had a faulty vvti and heard a rattling noise?

Re: HELP! engine rattle

it was absolutely fine before the turbo went on. Only started after the turbo was fitted. It wasn't running any boost at all and isn't now. What do you mean something in the bottom has gone? I'll try and get a vid when i pick it up from the tuning place (Horshem Developments) I truly hope this isnt ...
