  1. So just a follow up. Yes I cleaned everything out. I replaced the main fuel filter and there was no filings so it was obviously coming from the pump on the surge tank. I replaced that pump and all problems seem to now be fixed.
  2. So I was having dramas with fuel pressure being too high and too low, fuel smell, car misfiring, etc, etc, Started trouble shooting. Pulled out the FPR and found it full of metal filings some appear to be brass or copper??? I have a surge tank with an 044 in it. I'm aware the fuel rail can rust but where the hell is the copper looking filings coming from? Is it the 044. That's all I can think of?
  3. Dam I love this site. I had the same issue. Read this thread on my phone. Yep lose negative battery terminal. Boom 2 minutes from problem to phone to fix.
  4. Ok so looking at a pierberg. I'm trying to work out which one. I see plazmaman is now using a 300l/hr on his surge tanks (no part number), independent motorsports has a 360lph part number EFP-485. I see people taking about 7.00228.51.0 but that looks like an internal pump???
  5. So update on this. I rewired the fuel pump so it gets power directly from the battery now. Did that three years ago when I did this post. Got a new 044 and It was all good till today. Now the whine is back. So I have to assume it's the heat. Having said that, my battery is on the way out. It's dropped enough power for my aircon to stop working twice in three weeks. I've charged it up each time and it lasts a week and a half before the same issue. (I have the Kayhan unit but it apparently has the software changes to avoid the battery drain). So maybe the battery has contributed to t
  6. He explains it all on his you tube and Facebook channels. The hack is to rewire the pins to get the sun working
  7. I can confirm that the aftermarket mic he provides works well. The new version of the unit is also instant startup. The sub hack works too.
  8. Ok Installed mine over the weekend. My Car is MKi but I got the Mkii version. I sourced a MKii facia and top hat. it looks schmicko !!!. The install was difficult because of the model versions. I spent about 2 hours stuffing around with the brackets to get it to fit. I basically had to redrill some holes where the DVD player mounts of the side brackets and then cut up the LCD bracket and drill new holes for that to fit too. I got there in the end and the fit is perfect. I'll do up a video or a write up on the install eventually when I have time. The install was on a Sunday
  9. I wonder if he is going to redesign the mki version so they fit better
  10. I literally haven't touched the parcel since it arrived. But I'd feel sorry for the guy if everyone is returning units and he gets stuck with a bunch of old ones. I already got him to change my order from mki to mkii after I had ordered it
  11. Noooo... my mkii unit is still unpacked in the parcel. Today I Finally got my hands on a mkii icc cover to install it and now I hear there is a better version. Noooo!!
  12. Mine should arrive today. Though some numbnut wrecker appears to have sent me a MKI ICC cover not MKII even though I double checked with him. So my install will be delayed.
  13. oh sorry yeah they have a territory too. here is the FG Mk2
  14. Top end Audio want $400 for the MKii pod when the MKi is only $200.... WTF
