Dunno. I wouldn't be surprised. Have you tried yours?

What are you guys talking about?? Maybe a thread merged here or something. BTW: I had a chance to visit the new manufacturer of the hummer replacement, the "flyer". All aluminum body, Fox Coilovers, and small turbo Diesel. Looks like the army is stealing ideas from me!! Of course, it also had the engine mounted in the back and a tube chassy, but whatever.

I was just thinking the same thing, scanned up & down the whole thread incase I missed something...
The answer is of course that the gremlins have got into your engine too. They're sure making a mess of my engine at the moment...... see gremlins in the 90 thread.

I think you guys only have short-term memory....

We were referring to Mike's summary post on tweaking the fueling in your tdi engine. I was talking about the top cover of the pump. I finally got it off. Bought the largest, tallest flat head I could find and gave it some muscle. I think the pb plaster did most of the work though.... I'll report back on the results!

All becomes clear. Yes those screws are right so-and-so's to get off, they're M6 thread so I considered putting some hex head bolts in their place.

Are you going the whole hog, star wheel, torx screw and a twist on the diaphram?

We're off track in this thread again......

Yes, just finished and drove around town. All I have to say is holy S#$#... I was conservative on the adjustments. The difference in acceleration is noticable. In fact, very noticable. And much smother from start to 4th. Very impressive. Can't wait to get it on the highway tonight and on a few hills.

Okay, I'm done hijacking the thread!

Everything Mike suggested on the pump itself. However I turned the screw on the blanking plate about 1.25 turns. And turned the diaphragm about 80 degrees from the stock position. I also have the smoke screw at about 1 1/4 turns. At 1 1/2 or more, I get visible smoke.

Randy. I'd say drive your rig the first 3K miles just to get a good feel for it. Then make the tweaks (I can help if you like). It's a world of difference.

sounds good. Thanks David. I only have about 3 miles on my truck. I will want to do it eventually but I have to say thatt he motor feels quite good right now and throws out some power for a 4 cyl. Much more then any other 4 banger rover I ever had.

Good morning all. Got some project update pics here. The cage is done. Front end is almost done, just need to do the quarter panel protection. The tire carrier is almost completely done. Just need the Hilift attached and the release mechanism. It holds 1000 pounds, just to keep with the theme of overbuilding! Check out the approach angle!! Not bad for a winch. Ok, flame away....

Follow-up Post:

Heres the tire carrier. The swing mechanism is a machined down Chevy wheel spindle complete with bearings and grease. You can remove the entire assembly with 2 bolts.

Nice looking truck, are you going to run arch extensions over the tyres ?

Hmmm, now where did I leave that M1A1 Flamethrower? Dammit! Well, I'll just make fun of you instead Dave! Now that you've encapsulated your D90 in a fine wrought iron chicken koop I WANT to see you roll it! I think you owe us that much!

Oh, whats the reason for leaving a front bumper out of the picture?

"Nice looking truck, are you going to run arch extensions over the tyres ?"

No, and the front end is going to be 3in wider when the new outers are in place so I hope the cops leave me alone!

"Hmmm, now where did I leave that M1A1 Flamethrower? Dammit! Well, I'll just make fun of you instead Dave! Now that you've encapsulated your D90 in a fine wrought iron chicken koop I WANT to see you roll it! I think you owe us that much!

I promise I will roll it, don't know if I will get it on tape though! When you like to push your truck to the limit, you will roll it, it's a matter of when, not if. Plus, its great fun and the ladies love it. I left the bumper off because there is really no point, just ads extra weight and takes away approach angle. I wanted to stay as far away as possible from the ARB snow-plow look.

Thanks Randy, I think it is coming along pretty well. I wish I had made the cylinder for the tire carrier shorter, but we were going to run the tubes over the rear light at first and then changed our minds and left the extra lenth. I hope it doesn't look too menacing.

Yes and no! I was about to order it and then when I made the call the guy told me that it was much too big for the engine. He said there was def such a thing as too much intercooler. And I thought bigger was better. I need to do a little more research before I buy, because I do not want mass turbo lag and whatever else could go wronge. I will post pics as it comes along, both the intercooler and the new outers.
