Hi we are new to the forum and are looking for a bit of help
my bro (rob) has a 2001 bugeye 2.0t and we just made a few purchases and done a small rebuild.
.New vf34 turbo from rodgerclark
.up rated rodgerclark fuel pump
.sti top mount intercooler
.k&n typhoon air filter
.sti pink injectors
.sti manifold with tgv (tumblers) delete
.exedy organic clutch and sreet flywheel from rodgerclark.
.ngk iridium plugs
.samco intake hose.
.prosport boost gauge
.rodgerclarke uprated head studs and nuts with 0.78 thick head gaskets think this is correct thickness.
For the rebuild we took the engine out and took the heads of cleaned all surfaces installed studs and put heads back on and torqued to speck. got the cams in and all timed up then refitted engine once all in we installed the sti mani with pink injectors and went from there. got it all ready to fire up and turns over fine but will not start it sounds like its firing as it has a exhaust note similar to running note. we primed it a few times ignition on and of but nothing checked the coil pack and the coil pack leads that plug on and all ok. from looking at front of the car turbo to left the firing order is 1 3...2 4 higher numbers at back. still wont have it so plugged in code reader and gave a load of tgv (tumbler valve codes) p1094 p1096 p1086 p1088 p1086 p1088.
checked it has fuel and spark and does but still nothing and we drained the battery trying different things. we have just plugged the tgv switches into the loom and now is loose in the engine bay but still bringing up the codes.
we are not using the sti wiring loom that is usual attached to the mani we are using his old loom.
the idea was to get it running and drive off boost till we get a remap in a week.
so if anyone has and answers as to why it wont start it would be very appreciated.
we could do with the help cheers luke and rob
pics to come when running
