Round 3 with the FMIC. I wanted to fit the fogs whilst changing over the couplers.







So after fiddling with this widely acknowledged ill fitting kit, i have to say the only real issue that the pipe on the drivers side hooks over too much, causing that side to get pulled upwards. The only way around it is to cut the hard pipe so its less hooked or what i have done and move it as far away from the IC as possible, going under and around the side the fog.(note the longgg hose lol)

Also theres a million threads asking about how to do it keeping your fogs. Its pretty simple; on the cupra bumper, with the supplied pipes it must go below the fogs.

Still chasing the 17705/P1297 gremlin after changing my map sensor.

Just replaced my old N75f with a updated Febi bilstein version of the 06A 906 283 E. (40 quid worth a punt instead of 80 from the stealers)

First drive and it didnt peak to 12psi like it usually does, and it was sometimes boosting 9psi instead of holding 10psi. It definitely feels less torquey than the old one, but at the same time the delivery was much less rough feeling and it pushed better at around 70mph.

Im going to give it a few drives to let the ecu adjust and see how it performs. Also changed my actuator hose for some vacuum stuff.

Changed the exhaust gas temp sensor because it was throwing a code when the reader plugged the reader in, although didn't activate the engine light. Was also using craploads of fuel because it was running rich. Bought a second hand one for £85 (£280 new at the dealers) and works fine. Was pretty easy to change, just slightly finickity unscrewing the probe from the turbo by feel alone.

Connor H - Take a look at this

Tbh though just took it for a proper drive and this E valve sucks. I was hoping it would cure my constant limp mode issue but I’m tempted to just throw the old on there anyway as if it was truly buggered it would have thrown a specific n75 code

Limp mode again today so taking that piece of sh*t E valve off and putting my trusty F on there.

FWIW i did try to get a replacement of F but doesnt seem to be sold anywhere, they replaced it with the E model so not sure whether i'd be buying the right one.

Fitted new drivers door catch mechanism and window regulator today. Catch started to get a bit hit n miss so thought id do it before it stopped for good.
Used an after market regulator and not really happy with it. However much i giggled and adjusted it, it still goes really slow on the last 6-8 inches when going up.
Going to order a pucka one from TPS on Monday.

Thought id take a look at the window regulator again before ringing TPS.
Took the door trim off and lowered the glass so i could see the 2 retaining bolts through the inspection holes.
Loosensed them then operated the window up n down a few times and retightened them.
Seems better so will leave it for now.
