    Please note. I removed the old turbo and to my surprise found that it is NOT water cooled. It is oil cooled only which makes idling down all the more important.

    I also opened the turbo to find the exhaust impeller damaged (probably due to the broken ring debris) so a rebuild of the turbo is in order before flogging it further.

    I also experimented with the EGR valve and my car seems to be more economical with the EGR connected.

    I suspect a catch can is in my near future then instead of the EGR delete.

    Hi all so tomorow I am loading this Treg of mine to Tim, (hopefully my magician).
    Just need the vibration thing sorted out, i would also like to regain my trust in this marriage that I have with my TReg.

    EGR question, I am more concerned about trust worthyness of the engin, than feul consumption, thus my question do we connect or disconnect the EGR. For i would gladly sacrifice some km/l, if i can spare the engin, injectors from damage. For as I know this is not a cheap engin to repair..

    I can vouch for the repair costs. There aren't any. You have to swap the engine!

    For longevity I would delete the EGR.

    For longevity and economy I would keep the EGR and install a catch can (blowby AND egr together gunks up the intake - remove one of them and problem is solved)

    Marius, just so I'm clear in understanding. The catch can will be for CCV not the EGR? As far as I know, on my v6 TDI, CCV has a 'catch can' type mechanism included OEM.

    Yes, for the CCV. Can you post some pics of your catch can setup?

    Note to Touareg owners. Sometimes it's cheaper getting Porsche parts.

    I just ordered suspension bushes for my touareg as they are pretty knackered.

    I got the solid cayenne turbo bushes (instead of the weak oil filled cayenne/touareg bushes) for R40 cheaper per side.

    Have a look on page 20 of the attached.

    "In combustion engines, pressure differences between
    the combustion chamber and crankcase lead to air
    flows between the piston rings and cylinder contact
    surface; these are called blow-by gases.
    To prevent environmental pollution, these gases,
    which contain oil, are fed back to the intake area via
    the crankcase breather system.
    A cyclonic oil separator separates the oil contained in
    the gases from the air. This oil is returned to the oil
    pan via a port in the crankcase."

    Hi, car at Tim so we will see if he can save my baby.

    Maruis you said regarding the repair cost "there arent any" and that you need to swap out.
    Another member bought R5 engin at Remtec for 60K, reason for question then is where does Remtec get their engin from for they are engin remanufactures, the member said the car is running like new.

    Whether you ask remtec to rebuild your engine or buy a unit from them the cost is still R60k. So yes you can rebuild them I suppose but Its financially better to either get a ready unit from them or a second hand engine out of a writeoff like I did.

    You will make more money by dropping in a remtec engine and then selling it on.

    Thing is i already paid R85000 till were the engin is now add the R60K for remtec and it still excl. Tims labour roughly total R160K, if i pay for remtec and Tim i still have something to show for it. Or i do v8 conversion, and then use it till the wheels fall off, i dont know what to do.

    V8 more reliable than TDI?

    Hi Anton, you say you have spent 85K on reparing the engine and it is still stuffed? Who took your money for the repair? surely this should be their problem?

    Forget the conversion, will cost you endless money to get right.

    Determine what you will get for scrap & determine the value you can sell/trade with a Remtec engine, then make your choice based on that. You have lost big time either way due to incompetence. Where does the engine come from which you have now?

    got my porsche cayenne turbo bushes today and started on the suspension.

    got pretty far without a press. Left side is done.

    Just need to get the right side bush in and the reassemble the right side.

    I'll leave that for tomorrow.

    Very simple screw system with a threaded rod, washer and nut to get the bushes out. It works a treat! Who said you need a press and fancy tools. Only downside is it only pulls the rubber out. I then had to mangle the sleeve to get it out.

    All I used was

    21mm ring spanner
    21mm socket with strongarm and/or ratchet
    torx allen key for balljoint
    4pound hammer to get balljoint out
    trolley jack
    small piece of wood
    19mm spanner for my bush removal tool

    To do it you raise the car to xtra offroad level
    press and hold lock for 5 seconds to enter jack mode
    unbolt strut from control arm on the three bushing points (three bolts and nuts)
    get the ball joint loose in what ever way you see fit (I undo the nut until the nut is flush with the thread and then hit from underneath with a big 4 pound hammer - both sides came out after second shot - no damage - DON'T hit the disc!)
    swivel control arm 65 degrees towards you to get clearance between the top of the ball joint and the CV hub
    remove complete control arm

    Replace bushing and reverse your order of removal.
