    Um, maybe it's just me out there, thinking and all... But what kind of engine rebuild and install overheats like that?
    I would stop beating and modifying this engine until it's sorted. Roasting it harder will only make it worse.

    Also, I hope you know that you can't slap on a 3.5" MAF without a proper retune.

    - E36 328is ~210-220whp: Lots of Mods. RomRaider self-tune work in progress.
    - 2000 Z3: Many Mods.
    - 2003 VW Jetta TDI Manual 47-50mpg: Many Mods ~300ft/lbs tq, diesel, daily beater. Love/Hate relationship.

    Aw CRAP really? Mohammed, there's no damned way that car should have overheated. Take it the FK back, and tell the SOB that he should have made sure it was right before he gave it to you. Who the hell does a complete rebuild without driving it a hundred or more miles?

    That's how they do it in London,
    Unfortunately rushed,
    By both of them!
    Wadi, I am no upgrade expert,
    But your shop truly disappoints!

    To be really fair, they were working on the car from 8am till 4am, I bled the system myself when it overheated till now I've done around 700 miles and it ain't overheated again so I can say safely say it's bled properly now using our procedure in the FAQ, didn't have jack so I drove the nose up a pavement so it's higher then the rear lol.

    Yeah Abel, I'm just collecting my parts then probably gonna give you a shout for a S52US tuned ecu!!

    ive got my first issue:
    when I rev at idle or something the rev sticks for a few seconds and drops so I think vacuum leak somewhere and the fun bit is no garage in London have I found with a smoke machine!

    "To be really fair".....there's no damned way that shop should have let that car go away without quite a few shakedown trips, driven by the technician that built the engine. When I finish a motor, I drive the car quite extensively for a few days, amassing a hundred miles or so, putting it back on the lift a few times to check that everything's buttoned up correctly. If the throttle sticks or the revs don't return to normal immediately, I fix the problem before I let the car go home. I watch the temp gauge like a hawk for the first 50 miles, too.

    It wasn't a shop I went to lol, just a guy who builds his own cars to drift! So far so good no more overheats or any leaks.
    did my 1k oil and filter change yesterday using mobil1 0w40 full synthetic. I just notice that this engine with 1k miles and added s52 cams ain't quicker then the old engine which had 5k miles on it before it seized. Now I just gotta figure out why my revs hold for a second before dropping without a smoke machine because I can't find any
