So...my issue was intermittent, 1 day solved, 1 day ran pig rich...

I've tried an other EZK chip and it was helping a lot , but unlike I've said, it don't solve this issue...

But, wednesday I've removed my BOV (technical inspection soon...) and put back the stock CBV on the turbo : NOW the issue is SOLVED!!! More then 1 year spent only because this stupid BOV is leaking sometime...

Hey Roy (alex?),
If you like Forge this much try this one:
FORGE FMDVRMR

I prefer HKS or Synapse, and never without recirculation.
Every BOV else than HKS or Synapse is prone to leak. Otherwise the spring is way too hard. It is not easy to adjust the OEM Bov right.
regards, Kay

My BOV is leaking between the big piston and the BOV body, by the O-rings... And I don't see too much signs of wear on those parts...

I think I'll stay with the stock CBV for a while now...

So, very bad news here... My engine is dead now!

The HG is blown (not a big issue) but the block deck is in bad shape... So I don't know what to do...

Is there such a thing as a portable miller for flattening the top of the block in-situ?

Post photos of your sad block please,

That is bad news! If we get transport organized, I could give you a 1996 engine with 220tsd km -- bottom should be Ok, -- it came with a broken head gasket. Head still on at the moment, but if you want it I would take down the head first ti see for sure what the condition is. send me PM--

As you can see around the water channel (cylinder 1), it's deeply worn...and the HG is only sealed by the fire ring...

I think that's the water channel that showed the most corrosion on my block too ... but then I'm not adding power so I just emery-clothed the thing and put the fixed head back on with a normal elring gasket.
You've got loads more boost and power over stock ...
Do you have cool pistons/rods/etc down there that'll need swapping too?

I just checked : both my old dead block and the fresher engine I put in and had to take the head off : both showed similar corrosion mostly around that same water channel : cylinder 1 nearest the dowel and waterpump. Interesting.

This is also what I've seen . 1st cylinder water channel worn out...

So said, all of my motivation is lost now, so I'm really thinking about to sell the car with all of my parts (stock and "performance")...

come-on!, after puting all the effort into that car, you can't give up because of a minor detail, --- a few hours see you through to fit a new bottom end-- and (of course) make some improvements--
We'll get something sorted for you, I am sure!

Roy go and read the first page of this (your) thread again.
This car is awesome.

I'm happy to fly over and put it back together and drive it home to Northumberland ... oh wait, ... commitments.
Still a possibility.

Alex, should I write all the long story about my car here or you want to see it in your e-mail?
Because I have a long story to tell (with a motivation in background) and all I would ask for you would be to think about it.

Edit: I hope that you'll find an appropriate and good shortblock for your brick. Fingers crossed!

You're right, I was just so de-motivated about this car...the technical inspection took me 3 months of evening/night/week end to prepare/re-assembly the car...and I'm tired of it, but with the HansW proposal, it can change quickly!

Then we'll need to wish a good luck for HansW to find a good shortblock for Roy!
It seems that I will need to find another engine too as mine is done. The 16T is fine, that thing doesn't need any rebuild, the problem is in the block. It's just drinking oil. Not sure yet whether I'll go for an FB (that thing will need to be rebuilded though) or just an oversize piston set in this FK block.
Ah yes, and the oil pump seems to be gone too. We installed VDO oil pressure gauge today and guess what pressure is in it? 0.8 and maximum 1.2 under load. Funny times, yay!
