Ok, so the following problem(s) showed up yesterday:

Symptomes:

- Manometer on fuel rail shows varying fuel pressure.
- Idle is varying, but not rough.
- LOUD main fuel pump.
- Weird sound (like there is air mixed in the fuel) when under load.
- No change when under load. Excellerating like normal.

My suspects:

- Air in fuel system (in tank hose, bad seal)
- Bad fuel filter (I'll have to change it anyway)
- Bad FPR (had that once with the EXACT same symptomes)

What I checked:

- Took out the pre-pump and checked for a leak in the small tube. There was no hole what so ever and the rubber felt like new. The filter sock was clean.
- Visually inspected all the fuel lines. One injector was leaking on the fuel rail seal!

Actions:

At first I'll be changing out the injector O-Rings. Im not going to keep that fire hazard! Maybe that will fix the fuel pressure problem... (MadDog doesnt think so... )

I did a silly and not usefull mod to my car this weekend:

Did this just to mess with the VW Polo tuners in my area...

I put a solenoid valve into the vacuum tube leading to the CBV.
Now I can trigger the "Stututu" flutter sound whenever I want with a flick of a switch Without having to deal with the negative effects of having no CBV.

Atm I can only activate it when on boost because otherwise the vacuum is trapped inside the cbv and it just stays open. Maybe I'll add a one-way-valve in the future...

Together with my K&N Cone filter and metal piping it makes a pretty sweet sound.

That explains some things.

Idle vacuum went from -26.5inHg to -20inHg. That sounds better

I've been driving around without a shifter boot/cover for a while now and the accumulating dirt annoyed me.

All the boots I could find were disgusting and stinky tho

So on this rainy day I made my own.













I think the color matches my seats quite well.

While most people at work are on vacation I had some freetime to design this...





I already printed it 1:1 (only half of it - it's symmetrical) and it's a good fit.

Im going to get a 1650x550mm sheet of plywood for my first try. Thinking about fiberglass.

You have a 3D model of a 940? Where did you find it? I've been looking for one
Love the splitter, I may have to do this also

It's a 3D scan you can find online with a bit of searching. I scaled it and confirmed it was scaled correctly by measuring varius dimensions. It's rough but workable.

I can upload the stuff tomorrow and send it via PM.
