Typical stuff I do

  1. The BMW sixes mostly have swirl flaps which can disintegrate and destroy turbos and engine just for the sake of a few hours work and about £30. The egr is exhaust gas recirculating and removing the gubbins give a cleaner engine with less soot problems.

    Just been through this thread & enjoying your work, your tips & mods! :thumbup:

    As for DPF/cats - the best way to gut them properly is to cut a flap in the top of them, remove the guts, weld back up & grind welds flush. When fitted back on the car the weld is on top & can't be seen by mot man!
    You can gut them with a steel rod down the pipe but you'll not get it all out & they will rattle afterwards! :rolleyes:
    As for ones with pressure sensors, a good engine mapper can usually map them out.;)

    Not that I would ever do any of these things, that would be illegal! :whistle:

  4. My mates just had a quote of £2500 to sort a DPF issue on his golf from VW. I put him on to a guy who remapped it and sorted out the DPF fault for £150. It would have been an mot fail with his light stuck on. Bonus is that it’s never driven as well.

    Repaired this broken winch today, 2 lugs were snapped off so I made 2 new ones out of 10mm ali and tig welded them in.

    The reason it broke is because it was mounted on a piece of 4mm steel which twisted up under load, so I made this base plate out of 15mm mild steel with an extra bracket to re enforce the the repaired piece.

    I'll post a pic of the winch fitted to the base plate when the lidl paint has dried.

    Little demo I did for a customer to show why purging is worth the extra cost, welded up one half then switched on the purge and welded the other half.
