    Fenix Radiators - anybody used one of these?

    True true, need to compare apples with apples ... Fairly sure mine is a 3 or 4 core

    Fenix Radiators - anybody used one of these?

    Who's doing the re-core? I got estimated around $800 last week and Rockauto have no rx7 style brass radiators in stock - Trying to avoid the cheapy alloy ones.

    AW11 MR2 with thin flywheel

    ^ as above - I'd only lengthen the slave rod if it was a small amount. you should be able to space out the pivot point thing enough for the 10mm, and if not, then do both.

    matteybeans 1978 rt104 corona

    Fair enough - Wasn't sure if the corona's were known for weak diffs/axels or not. Still the long term turbo plans?
  6. this was a sweet event 2 years ago, my radiator is out getting fixed, if it's back in time I'll pop along again.

    Lowering - RX30 Cressida

    Have a search in the project section (if you haven't already) for any RX30 projects. They often have information in there that's handy. If not - have you thought of shortening your shocks to make the springs you have captive? Or looking at a shorter stroke shock from another make?

    Sheepers latest Ms75

    annoying news (back stuff) but 100% better to rest and hopefully sort that out before you cause permanent damage at least you've got other sweet wips you can take along to leadfoot
  10. Good to know - can understand the frustrations with no shows + driving around to visit people all over Auckland for $50!!!
  11. Cheers for the info Clint - You & Mark are still listed on the LVVTA contact list as doing exhaust & noise certs - not the case?
  12. Yep read that this morning before posting up on here. That's basically what the WOF inspector has decided - and TBH it's fairly loud (13B bridge port, 2 resonators and boiler style muffler). The rear muffler has a bolt on flange to the rest of the system, and I'm thinking an option is to install said baffle (shut it up for the wof) - take it back to WOF place and say 'we installed new resonators/mufflers & now it's quiet' - see if its passes. If not, book in a noise cert and get the stamp on the exhaust saying it's legit.
  13. Yeh exhaust noise cert - Fairly sure the cert would have been before noise certs existed - but could be wrong. He's got a baffle plate he can shut it up with, so I recon he should chuck that in there and go back with it relatively quiet and see what they say.
  14. any one on here had an exhaust certified before - the brothers wagon failed its WOF (certed for engine conversion + other mods) but WOF guy recons he needs exhaust cert. Is the process any different to regular certification stuff? Is it a quick and easy process? ie; book an appointment, exhaust gets checked and either passes or fails?
