Is She Looking Correct From The Outside.
Posted 04 July 2017 - 06:41 PM
Before I go to a tuning specialist (T&M in Colchester I intend to use) I was just wondering if there was anything obvious from the outside to why it would be so poor. I believe the two blocked pipes are for the dump valve and breather pipe.
Anyone spot anthing dodgy?

You have serviced it and checked as much as you can then leave it at that.
The guy at colchester (who tuned mine) said so much was out and that my dizzy had an issue inside (which I'd of never of seen) and I spent ages trying to sort it and it was a waste.
Couldnt recommend him enough to be honest.

two things when going to a r/road
before you go have you changed all the components you want/need to change like back box air filters as if you change them after it should have another r/road session as it will wrong set up again .
two the car should be a lot smother and less thuggish/lumpy after tuning and feel slower, strange but true.
Three talk to them see if they change/recommend any thing but don't bug them.

The tuners I'm heading to is just a garage but they guy knows his stuff apparently. My nearest mini friendly R/R is an hour away and don't trust the car that far as is.
My thought is to get it tuned as good as possible close by and then take it to the R/R for its final tune up.

Ensure the air filter tubing to turbo isnt bent/crimped/blocked as that makes it struggle to boost.

The vacuum pipe that connects from the front of the carb to the side is in the wrong port. It needs to go into the one that's blocked off with a bolt. Then block the lower one off.

What's the effect of having it the way I currently do?

Have you got a boost gauge fitted ? This will tell you if it's actually boosting, though even on low boost it will be fairly obvious to feel.

There's a few jobs I'm not best pleased with but to cut a very long story short iv now got the car back and moving on with it. It's cost way to much for a still none perfect car but iv just put it behind me and looking forward to finally using it.
Boost gauge isn't currently fitted no as dash is still not as I want it. It's here ready to go on though.

Simply connect up the boost gauge temporary and see whats happening.
