Update 05/15/2012: This video is EXTREMELY old, was filmed entirely by
hand. Please check out my new work. This car is still owned by the same
person, and is entirely different. It is now manual, yes, manual. Has a k04
turbo with refreshed motor, stepped
lipped RS's with brown face, brown engine bay and roof and a entirely
redone interior. New video will be coming soon.
Also: most questions about the car and it's parts / details will not be
answered. I am not the owner.

VW - AUDI 1.8T Cylinderhead - Rotationtest 7500 RPM
GT-Power makes a Rotation - Test for the Original 1,8T Camshaft and Valves
on the Thyssen Cylinder Head - Dynometer in Germany.
All Heads must stand this test before they goes in Production.
Lambo, Porsche, Audi R8 and allthe other high tech cars.
GTP was the first Tuner which have done this Test, to make sure when comes
the critical point in making setups.
Chiper and many Tuners just set the Rpm Limiter wherever they belive, but
realy nobody knows.
Our Customers are not our Testdrivers and this test have to be done, to
make sure how high can we run our Power Setups with turbokits installed !!
This High Tec Rotation - Test shows with lasermessurement exactly the valve
shattering from the hydraulic valve followers, the valve clearance and how
much Rpm you can run save the Engine without the valve hit the pistons
7250 was just safe......
7500 with hot oilsfoam of older lubriation, the head get under stress and
the "hydraulic pushers" start to to jitter. ( it is also a classical engine
fold by the Audi RS 4 and S4 )
They dosent work exactly anymore and we have to lower the RPM in the safer
We do this Test with a complete new head, new valve guids and new liters.
Just imagine, what can happend if you drive your engine with over 80.000 km
and older valve guids or older lifters. Ergo you should change them
Sorry for the bad video quality.
Ashmond Mk4 Golf 1.4e To 1.8T KO4 Stage 2 Rebuild, 2nd Time Round - PART 1
Here is a video I made whilst bored on the train of my mk4 golf after we
put the second 1.8T engine after the first one went due to sucking up a
load of water and destroying engine. I toyed with the idea of breaking or
selling the car but just couldnt and I am happy I held out and went
travelling during the recession and weathered the storm. This time we have
taken more time and made sure everything is 100% - please note this is not
the finished article as there is a blow in the Exhaust hence the sound. Just a quick vid to
show she is rolling again. This time with a stage 2 s3 remap.
Music is; Grafix - Rebuild
EDIT - New video on road all running beautifully Sept '12:
