    MOT time again

    Mines Monday, fingers crossed, only thing I can find is a little play in a rear wheel bearing (been an advisory on last 2 MOT's). Will try and get round to it this weekend but if not then just chance it for another year

    Superspec springs upgrade

    Was going to double check with Dampertech and see what spring rates dave recommends

    Superspec springs upgrade

    Ive been quoted from kit spares that the kit that supply are the shocks are 13" open &10" closed with spring rates of 350lb front and 200/250lb rear. I'm looking to do mine as well!! They have quoted about £450incl vat but I would need the bracket for front suspension and need to make something for rears. I was quoted a similar price from Dave @ dampertech last year

    Super Spec rear bearings

    Hi Does anyone know what type of Sierra rear hubs the super spec used or are they all the same? I think my "wobbly loose wheel" incident on the drive up to stoneleigh has caused it to wear prematurely and MOT is about 3wks away

    Engine issues finally overcome

    Can I ask what emerald ecu you used and how easy was it to setup. I have a non turbo super spec with the old MEMS ecu which seems you can't map it so it's very limited.

    Noise cameras

    What are the noise limits or is it different for every area? And how do you test your car

    Pinto immobilizer

    Ive just got a battery isolation switch but been thinking of putting a hidden switch for the fuel pump, mines a rover engine not pinto but don't suppose it makes much difference Oh and a removable steering wheel!!

    Fame at last!

    Ive seen them for sale on CBS and Kit spares, I was possibly looking to change mine to clear so I assume they are ok
