Hey guys just after a bit of advice/info on my sf5 turbo.
I'm getting to the point now where I will be getting it ecutek mapped as the handling /brakes are all sorted ,so I will swap to a td04 before the map,question is do I leave the td04 actuator on or swap it out for the old one?
Next up is I'm going to be changing the oil n filter at the same time,what's the best thing to take off to stop the engine firing so I can get the oil pumped round the engine?
Many thanks .jamie

disconnect the Crank sensor and crank it over in short bursts for a minute or two......basically called a 'dry crank' ....oohhh err

My mechanic showed my something I've never seen before (no not that)

He got a bit of old cable flex and connected the starter motor straight to the battery. Seemed much simpler than disconnecting the crank sensor especially if you have big hands ( as I do)

This sounds a great idea. Thanks
