  1. Cat go meow As the angle grinder removes it
  2. Looking at the graphs it appears that the runners aren't a limiting factor for power, I wonder if it'd be worth decreasing the diameter so they become restrictive and therefore design differences will be more apparent
  3. Chuck four of those AliExpress electric intake turbos on it
  4. Keen to see a revised screwdriver handle, see if it can reach the performance of the rest of them
  5. I can't see the video of it pulling 9k with open trumpets
  6. This seems to be a pretty redundant conversation tbh
  7. I've found from experience that 8Krpm paddock nangs with low oil level will do it

    My experience with timing belts is they don't skip teeth, they strip teeth. Not saying it's impossible, but it seems highly unlikely. You have to have a lot of slop in the belt to jump a tooth out, which will mean a failed tensioner and you would hear the belt flapping all over the show. Easy to check though, the upper timing covers are easy to remove. Pull the fuel filter off and see how much slime is in it.
  9. I love how far this project has snowballed
  10. I recall seeing that design years ago from a guy who built a few different PACs, as well as some other interesting stuff. Always wanted to make one but never did.
  11. Normally the low switches off when high is on, but I like to rewire so both go at once. Bulb might get pretty warm but whatevs
  12. We'll make the roads safer by encouraging people to remove their trailer brakes to pass a wof and then massively exceed their unbraked tow rating...
  13. How the hell do you test that? Most workshops don't have brake rollers. Mine included. Even with a brake roller, how would you test that? The dinky little handbrake lever puts on nowhere near the pressure as the tow hitch does

    The springs in the injectors flog out so the injection pressure drops, causing it to inject sooner than it should but also stretches out the injection time so it's still dumping in the fuel way after it should be too. Even just renewing the injectors will make a big difference, but getting the pump sorted too, especially if the guy can set it up to suit the turbo will make it a whole new beast.

    Unless the pump and injectors have had an overhaul they'll likely be very flogged, so the injection time will be way longer than it should be, and the timing too will be out. That'll account for black smoke too. HZs are nowhere near as robust as HDs, personally I'd be getting the pump and the injectors overhauled and back the boost off to 7 or so. Also add an intercooler if it doesn't have one. All this is pretty average when on an island I know but it'll keep it alive.
  16. The FnF craze is long over, stop worrying. Cops don't care about dodgy mods, they care if you're doing 5kph over the speed limit.
  17. The only time I've ever been pinged for an illegally modified vehicle was when it was legal. Cop was a cock and was on the hunt, stickered me for being too low when it wasn't. Funnily I had been pulled over multiple times both prior and after coz they thought it wasn't legal but only this one cop was enough of a cock to be a dickhead. The system doesn't favour a 19 year old arguing against them either, even when you are in the right. Car was 105 mm with a full tank btw. Never been pinged for any uncerted engine swaps, cut springs, ect that I of course have never done...
  18. I dunno if our shop does fixed price for alignment or if it's time / complexity based. Some cars have nothing but front toe adjustment, some have near full adjustment front and rear. May affect the price?
  19. Yah the GL5 has some stuff that forms a hard deposit on the gears, However it's harder than the bronze synchros and tears bits off them. Or something like that.
  20. Flexfuel it and run E85 as well
