Default Re: Ultimate Sandhurst Autosleeper Build Thread

I bought a kit & did it myself.
Someone has to keep their foot on the gas & hold the rpm on boost while you spray a litre of cleaner into the air intake.
Did this after blanking the EGR (which is responsible for chucking gunk bank into the plenum chamber bit. Mine was full of sticky gunk.
Had to take it off of de gunk it.
Shouldnít happen again with an egr blank if itís the intake side of the turbo.
Always running it on premium fuel helps too.

fingers crossed again

no real improvement after cleaning and a few hundred miles, still going into limp mode, booked in with Kenny at ecosse tuning for turbo replacement and pendle health check

Big trip coming soon so hopefully that will sort it out

Recent hot weather we noticed no air coming from the centre vents, so got a replacement cable and while I have the dash apart a usb button outlet for the stereo



Was really fiddly few extra cables behind the dash for the motorhome stuff makes it super tight

Still not 100% happy with it feels a bit tight when turning, but works

All back together
