Ok got the engine in and running!!!! literally started on the first turn! there was a little oil leak where we hadn't tightened up the oil cooler enough but it was soon sorted. Had a few running issues before when it was running really rich and thought that would all be sorted but after the engine had warmed up it was still running rich!! i couldnt believe it. we had changed pretty much everything except the lambda sensor. luckily we had a spare, so just changed it on the off chance it would cure it (as i know this can cause it to run rich) and wouldnt you know, runs like a peach!!

here are a few pics of the rebuild.

Firstly i wanted to get behind the engine and get to the bits i couldnt get before..

this is what it looked like when i started...

Polished and re taped the heat shield. re taped the aluminium gear linkage covers. did a bit more painting and some polishing and ended up looking like this...

The G60 didn't miss a beat!

Got a few pics to share:

Firstly.... you luck sod for getting an edition one for free lol Thumbs up
Some serious work has gone into your G60 which is very good to see as most G60's are taken out for the 20v T route which is a shame really.... but G60's can go very wrong if theyre not looked after very quite quickly

really wanna see this in the metal sometime its given me inspiration for my G60 which has now gone through its SECOND G-ladder in under a year (bad times)

keep it up mate

Cheers Stu, much appreciated

Yeah wanted to keep the G60 Engine. As you say too many of them have gone 20VT which is a shame. However it would have defo been the cheaper option if the engine goes so can see why people do.

Second charger! bad times. is your boost return pipe blanked off by any chance? and what air filter do you have? sounds like a mix between lack of oil and grit getting into the unit?

Is it back on the road?


Took a little pic with the refurb'd wheels on. Could be a bit lower but may just save it for the shows.

Cheers Lads.

Think this year is going to be a tinkering year. still quite a bit I would like to do to improve it further but that list includes respray plus retrimed recaro's so will have to save up for them bad boys.

Until then I will just be making it the best I can.

Is there any other shows in march worth going to?

This G is so nice its absolutly looks perfect.....literally woudnt change a thing hats off mate

I was running the return hose for the first 1500 miles of this new charger then blanked it off and i do run a K&N pannel filter which i clean up and re-oil quite often i thinks its a crap rebuild from g-werks, the walls and charger dont look like the surface of the moon but suddenly a part of the wall just gives up ? i guess i'll never know.... hissy fit

nah the rado is off the road atm with no charger and a new rad waiting but just finding it really hard to source parts like hoses ect which is a sod

anyway keep up the good work hopefully we can get a G60 convoy at some point and see who brakes down first lol
