Ford Galaxy Mk1 Engine Swap (Vw Passat)

07 October 2014 - 09:25 PM

Hey guys I noticed we have bad engine compression on my 300k plus ford galaxy.

The engine is a ahu. So I thought the vw passat ahu would be a good low mileage swap. (70k)

Did I Break The Galaxy ? Fuel Pump Rebuilt

30 September 2014 - 10:54 PM

Hello :)

I rebuilt my Bosch pump on my ford galaxy tdi.

The pump was set to tdc with knock pin facing up. As a rebuild guide suggested. Cambelt was also all set to tdc. (Cam lock and pump pully pin)

Sadly the engine is getting fuel and will no longer start up unless it's on easy start.

I know the pump timming will be off due to I have no dial (do u have one local to Birmingham?? :) )

Can anyone help or advise me ?

I,v done few mods on my focus tddi in past.

straight exhaust pipe.
Resonator bypass
Egr valve bypass
Inlet manifold was chemically cleaned
head/inlet was ported/smoothed to gasket size.
Rebuilt turbo with standard fixed actuator.

No ecu remap or tuning chips added.

I fitted a boost gauge and soon electrical boost controller.

Before I mess with my boost pressure.

What is oem boost pressure standard and do anyone know the ecu cut out?
