Well, yesterday. driving my car on the motorway, the turbo pressure drop suddently without any foretoken. The pressure drop back to around 0.4 Bar, the mode I call it safe mode just like the N75 valve is broken. I pluged the HEX-USB cable in, turned my laptop on and ran the vag-com. Ok, check the engine, working. read the falut code, bingo, the fault code is "17705 - Pressure Drop between Turbo and Throttle Valve (check DV!)". I guess it tells me that it is about time to replace my 710N DV which installed on my car.

In fact, I've saved some DV and BOV for a rainy day. lol. Here is the list:

Oil replacing!!! HKS Super Turbo Racing!

Now the oil running in the engine of my New Beetle is HKS Super Turbo Racing SL 15W50.

Due to having turbine modification, I got to replace the oil though it is about to change the oil of this engine. This time, I decide to try this HKS oil that I've never used just because the garage which modifying the turbine for said this oil is very good for a engine which bind with turbo system. I told them that "Ok! Just go ahead, do it!" :)


Turbine upgrading?

Yes, this is turbine in the photo my KKK K03/04 turbine (the input bore is size 4, the output bore is size 3), but this is not the one exact install on my car, because I've installed another KKK k03/04 which I took from the Golf 337 (25th Anniversary edition), the one where my gearbox was installed on). This turbine in the photo is just the factory one, yes, the one which was installed on my car before.

Regarding the introduction on Revo's web page, it says: "All Revo performance software programs are switchable via the OBD2 port on your car using our SPS device." I just played around my SPS3 today. (Is my SPS3 free or not??? I won't tell you. lol)
