  1. Make new ones use stainless steel or galvanised?
  2. Yes some people have done the bypass for the power steering cooler pipe. However these can be got brand new for 50 quid from ebay. Power steering fluid gets the crap kicked out of it so when my pipe went i replaced with new one. Dont want to risk the pump getting bust.
  3. Understand if its a diesel then your getting cancer. Petrol ok unless its been decatted. I remember back in the 80s the air really was a lot dirtier with smog and acid rain. No way near as bad as that. With electric cars on the horizon and all out ban on combustion engines come 2030 its interesting times ahead.
  4. How come you dont like idling?
  5. Hahah no chavvy exhaust so silent on idle.
  6. 1L per hour idling is very low consumption. the likes of AA and RAC and others saying start stop can save loads of fuel etc doesnt make sense if 1L is used per hour then for the few seconds of stop start time its just few drops for the sake of wear on the battery and starter. maybe im reading it wrong? could it be 1L per hour per injector? that would make it 4L per hour of fuel to idle car for 1 hour? edit: after doing some online research it looks like its right: https://www.energy.gov/eere/vehicles/fact-861-february-23-2015-idle-fuel-consumption-selected-gasoline-and-diesel-vehicles no point me sitting in the car getting cold while kid is at hockey training may as well leave engine on for the hour and get some heat and sound system banging for £1.50 for 1L of fuel.
  7. Used the obd app today and noticed a readout for fuel rate. At idle it says its 0.9L per hour. Am i understanding that right to mean if i idle the car for 1 hour its gonna use 0.9L of fuel? Also putting the lights on makes revs go up a little and it then says 1.0L per hour. Quick blip of the throttle to just over 2krpm and the app went to a bit above 2L per hour.
  8. I sent freakyparts messages but not got replies. Asking about the discoloration of the HEL hoses i got from him.
  9. celica numberplate is familiar im sure iv seen it on the club here.
  10. hahah yea i thought so too, then i saw a version that has no silencer and is just a straight pipe lol.
  11. Iv been pointed by some Facebook peeps to this exhaust. https://fullcartuning.com/57507-sk-import-cat-back-system-stainless-steel-toyota-celica What do you guys think?
  12. Heh, hopefully buys me more time so i can think about exhaust options. Thinking i should have got in on the group buy of the invidia n1 when i had the chance but was always worried it would be too loud. There is some 2nd hand ones about but again dont want to be in the same position again few years down the line.
  13. Looks like im gonna go with this method below: https://youtu.be/wTNnLYRAv9U That way it will reinforce the joint too and outlive the backboxes remaining life. The flexi clamp thingy and the putty from eurocarparts comes to total of around £7.30p Even cheaper from carparts4less but then there is delivery cost if you dont spend more than a certain amount. See videos of this where one guy makes a petrol lawnmower cylinder head out of jbweld and it works.
