Rev 2 turbo Tvis system

I was just going through some parts ive got in the garage ready to fit back to the engine when it comes back, and found that the inlet tvis system seems to be in two parts? I not noticed it before and wonder if its snapped in the middle or is it always like this?
I cant tell.

Id have said it was the coil as these are common to split and cause similar problems.

Re: Rev3 Mk2 3S-GTE Turbo - Cuts out when hot and won't restart til cold

Ive replaced my fuel pump and didnt find it hard at all. There was two of us and it was on stands.
A bit cramped but all was ok. Took a few hours.

Worse job ive found was either removing the exhaust manifold or removing the intercooler.

Re: She’ll be ready in time for japfest, I hope?!

Good luck. I love the idea of a mk1.5. I got rid of my mk1 when i was younger because i didnt think it was fast enough, but it handled great and just loved the rawness of it. So with a turbo engine they must be brilliant. My car is currently awaiting an engine refresh and rebuild which is now booked...

Re: Rev limit and engine management problem

Also take the coil off and clean the bracket and where it mounts to the body as this is its earth.

Also take off the ecu and check the caps isnt leaking onto the main pcb. Ecu failing on rev 3 na is rare but still possible.

Re: CT20B Turbo swap

Which then resulted in my engine being removed so i could then remove the head to get it repaired...... Which has now resulted in my engine being entirely refreshed lo...

It tends to be the rev 2 turbo ecu that has the bad caps. Havent heard of rev 3s having the same problem.

Send him an email,text or letter (some form of communication that is recordable) stating you want the fault they caused rectified within 7 days or you will be forced to go elsewhere (which you should have done so in the first place) and will be claiming the money it costs you back from them via smal...

Re: Rev3 Mk2 3S-GTE Turbo - Cuts out when hot and won't restart til cold

When it cuts out again, undo the petrol cap and let the air out and then try restarting.
Sounds fuel related to me. Might be the pump breaking down. Cant really tell without a toolbox with you when you break down.
