  • Forge Recirc valve fitted

    Just fitted the Forge recirc valve....What a total ****** of a job that was, not good for big hands at all. As you can see!!



    Anyway the OE one was knackered and torn. I aint had chance to give it a proper blast yet, but first impressions are good, a lot faster accelerating through the gears. So i think [email protected] MPG was spot on with his diagnosis.

    Excellent result fella, I sense a lot of expletives were vented fitting that. Tight is not even the word for it.

    Now back to the dyno Fair play to Ian.

        When i got mine i looked at where it went, thought ''not a chance'' and got MPG to do it whilst i had an actuator fitted. The poor lad was less then impressed at having to do it

          I honestly opened my bonnet one day looked in laughed and walked away, wasn't in a great mood

          When I finally fitted it, space was ridiculous. Vauxhall clearly didn't think about changing the valve with the position of the air con condenser pipes.

          Glad it seems to have sorted your motor.

                lol get yourself a halfords toolkit the one thats £100 at the mo, thats all i have and i replace engines gearboxes anything all the time!

                on another note glad you found the problem was your recirc valve, is your car running better now with the forge?

                  I'm off out tonight and gonna give it a blast. I was worried about driving it hard with the split valve so i haven't even felt the difference the LSD makes yet lol. But driving home from work today i could feel it pick up through the gears a lot better.


                  You got a link for the toolbox mate?
