i realy do reckon its got a leak somewhere. it only needs to be minor. if i wasnt busy i would pop up sunday and try mine because your only 30mins from me. think i would either sell it and buy a new one or buy the grs.

Hi ya sorry to here this
if you have bought the IC second hand I have a few quick questions.

1 did the IC come with covers on the ends ie blanking plates, boots or wrapped in cling film ?
2 did you make shore it was clean inside before you fitted it ? Ie blow it though with low pressure air and tap it out you only need a little bit of FOD and you can have problems

I have seen/herd of people fit coolers with out making shore there is no FOD in side and then suck the FOD in to the engine.
Also check the manifold pressure sensor under the cooler at the front But I would think you would have a fault code for that.

If you have no joy try find someone with a borascope And pull out your injectors and the SC horn on the right hand end and have a good look at the inlet track and valves just in case, Or find someone with a leak down tester this will tell you if your compression and valves are ok and not damaged or being held open DO NOT use a compresion tester as you have to spin the engine over which could cause more damageif there is a problem
Also I take it that the pulley is turning the SC ok and not just spinning on the shaft just a thought the IC might be a red hering.
And you have not had that pulley fitted for long.
Just a few thoughts i hope its an easy fix

Well it's been a strange day today !.

First thing this morning it started and ran fine with no lights and i let it tick over for 5 mins and switched off.

Yipeee

Not so fast !! i loaded up to go to the post office and it all came back Sad

Got home left it for an hour or so and went back out.
Yipee no lights running ok idleing just under 1000 rpm drove it round and round had her ticking for 45 mins. This was about 2 pm.

Just been back out and she started back up and is running fine no lights ect Very Happy

Fingers crossed
