    Valve retainers / collets / whatever holds the spring onto the valve it was the ze ones have been known to fall in half and wreck engines from there - probetalk forums seems to have died completely and so much knowledge on kl is lost in cyberspace

    DIY Fuel injection thread.

    I thought link did an mx5 plug and play they were on special a while back ? Or does that not work with 2000 model ? Vvti ?
  3. Have you seen the "crapengineering " mx5 subframes from uk ? Look as good as v8 roadsters and have many options - I have thought about importing a non painted one and getting it thru TAC approval if one passes TAC is that it then all others good to go or is it TAC for every individual subframe ?
  4. Yup same now I have had another look dunno where I got that from and I even asked the same question on here ages ago when I was building a sump and got told no minimum but allow enough room for torque reaction and worn mounts
  5. Not sure on the exact section but most engine will torque enough to close a 7 mm gap unless solid mounted maybe one of our friendly cert dudes will stop by and clarify
  6. Also don't you need at least 20mm clearance between sump and steering rack ? Thats the way I read it ?

    Looking good and you could use stock injector setup or the ports in throttle bodies also that rocker cover vent that links the two covers together can be deleted - later klg4 engines don't have the link and no adverse effects or fit pcv valve to there and block other 2 as I guess stock pcv valve hole is right under an intake runner ?

    Maybe easier to cut/ weld the left ( passenger) side rocker cover to gain more clearance as it's way higher than the other cover and does not need to be higher than the spark plug valley - I looked at doing similar with you on the not cutting bonnet or adding scoop that's the easy option not the what the hell is under there surprise option

    Oi ... I did some v6 stuff today - you guys have it easy with the front sump chassis and the precision tools - I did some machining with a hacksaw and a file

    Grille being made from alloy angle tile edging ? Or the cd rack behind the van ?
  12. Thanks for the link and the translation into normal person speak
  13. fun fact not all vehicles need an authority card to run a full cage- rules- A roll-cage may be positioned within the B-Zone of a low volume vehicle occupant cell, provided that (a) the vehicle is not a modified production Class MA, with unitary body construction, which has a permanent roof structure; does that exactly describe an mx-5 ? Also "head restraint " is that meaning seats with headrests or are we talking Hanz device restraint system ?
  14. Interested in that question too as I have removed a bonnet rib further back nowhere near hinge or catch
  15. Mx5 box or early rx7 is the closest fit for kl v6 still need adapter kl v6 all the things ... can get ford rocker cover for them or Barra turbo for modern version of the cortina 4.1 straight 6
