      2017 EMail Issues - Post Upgrade   23/01/17

      Hi,   Following a successful upgrade of our old code; being out of support we had to upgrade, we've encountered an unforeseen in preview and testing issue with our production email.   This means that email isn't sending as well as it should. You might ask for the email and we might send it, it also might get blocked by your ISP. Btinternet, AOL and Yahoo are well known for blocking.   We're working on it and I hope to have an solution working shortly.    Out of all that could of gone wrong, this isn't the worst case   As to other issues and 'change' as I said, it's forced upon us. To not change is irresponsible. More updates to follow once we're past our initial snag list.   There's only one working on it though; me, so please be patient, read the support topics, spend a few minutes, it's not that different once you get over the shock.   Cheers,   Colin   Snag List Topic >>

to be honest if the cleaner works on the air side of the, and not the exhaust side, then the use of it is going to be pretty pointless. Whip it off and give it a good clean.

I'll try and upload some pics of mine pre and post clean.

It doesn't work. For it be any use it would need to be sprayed directly onto the vanes, actuator ring and butterfly levers. This just isn't possible to do in-situ.

A mate bought a can. He removed the exhaust, sprayed the whole can in and he left it to do its stuff. I suggested that he pull off the vacuum hose and move the lever about a hundred times which he did. It seemed to solve the problem for a couple of months, but then it came back. His turbo wasn't completely solid to start with. When the problem returned, I took out the turbo and it was clear that some of the butterfly levers and part of the ring hadn't been touched. Where the cleaner had been, the hard carbon deposits remained.

Remove the turbo and clean it properly.

Just had a look at all your pics - that's some transformation :thumbup:

What did you use chemical wise for the cleaning process?

She must respond a lot better now?

Toothbrush, one of those green panscrub things and fairy washing up liquid can do more than just your dishes.... it loves turbos too :rofl: Oh and my mothers kitchen sink (when she wasn't watching!). Also cleaned up the inlet manifold and EGR/anti-shudder pipework again. Having now done the elephant mod, and EGR blank off, that pipework should remain clear. I am due a cambelt in few k's time, so I might take the intercooler off and wash that out too.

It is like a different car.... amazing. I am annoyed with myself that I took so long to sort it out. I can overtake and not worry about it going into limp mode midway through the manoeuvre.
