  1. so all my hard work over xmas seems to have been a waste,things are not looking good cold engine as it will not start didnt bother putting any oil down the cylinders,also tried it with the throttle body removed,timing appears to be correct seemed to get worse as soon as i fixed the water leak. so what to do now,seems strange all cylinders are the same,when it was running it would not idle ok 600 rpm to 900 rpm 2000rpm seemed smooth over 4000 and it got very noisy but didnt misfire or anything ,i put it down to the exhaust blowing or vibration somewhere def have to strip it right down now i think, oil leak has appeared aswel
  2. Unplugging negative on battery ?

    dont mind me asking Askari but have you noticed and drop in voltage between the engine bay and batt in boot,just moved mine in to the boot.had a batt charger on 13.4v at batt,at engine 125 amp inline fuse 12.7v is that normal you think. Scott try a batt charger on for a good while its possible the batt is not getting enough charge in it while running
  3. anyone experienced this before

    no just the normal halfords antifreeze (saying that it was over -10 at the weekend) stuck with this screw/bolt,do i have to take all the aircon off to get to the bracket that holds the alternator adjuster
  4. 3sgte water pump pulley inside timing cover sheared right off timing belt started car up monday morning,sounded rough but put that down to the cold,went an had a coffee while letting it warm up,15 min later went out to find steam coming out and engine had stopped,looking farther rad hose was frozen,despite having antifreeze in it (3yrs now), so an expensive lesson learnt,hopefully no internal damage
  5. throttle body swap now high idling

    sorry guys i thought i had posted that it was fixed,turned out the wee flap under the throttle body was stuck open,and the main throttle flap was not closing properly, sorted now after reading a how to guide on here.you learn something everyday with these things LOL,easy job to do once you have done it before. now i need a new clutch
  6. swapped the throttle body over now engine idling 2000 rpm,had to swap all the sensors from mine incl the spring thingy that screws on the flap only thing i can think is that plug sensor thing that fits on the throttle flap

    new bumper modification
  12. modified bumper

    anyone have an opinion on what to keep on this, do i keep the slots for the indicators (supra indicators) or cut them away and keep the fours same with the top middle mould the exising bumper into the sides of the scoop. prefer the cleaner look it gives off
  13. fitted this today new boost gauge aswell
  14. rear suspesnion

    i have replaced the rear subframe,polybushed everything arms etc,hub spherical bushes diff mounts etc,all new bolts,driving its still noisy the odd thud here an there over bumps,(handbrake replaced shoes cables etc) is binding for the first few 100 yards then clear i think, wondered if the bolts should have some form of oil/grease on them anyone know anything about this, putting car up in air again to check if anything has come loose, feels great driving but expected it to be quieter than what it is,another thing BC coilovers bran new only covered 200 mile in last 2 years seem to have gone a lot softer and the car has come lower to the ground (adjusted them to loft it back up)
  15. The paint on your car looks amazing, really nice reflection not so great up close,but once its painted again it should be better now that i have a better idea on how to do it,still toying with graphics stripes etc
