  1. With my blurred tired eyes at 5.00am I read that as superchargers getting banned
  2. Spal and kenlowe are the best in my opinion.
  3. The car is in really good condition, no faults whats so ever Recent oil service and rear brake pads. Manual gearbox Vendrestin quatrac 3 tyres all good Black leather interior Heated electric front seats Climate control Auto headlights Cruise control Detachable towbar Mot till july History and receipts Black with tinted windows 2007 Great tow car if interested i can email photos £4000 to anyone on here
  4. Robinhoods are fine if you want the looks and feel of a 7 type car. If you want a full blown sports / track car then look else where and spend a hugh amount more money... It's all down to what you are going to use it for and budget
  5. cancel that got one else where
  6. Anyone got one to sell ? Cash waiting
  7. Took mine out today, wheel spins everywhere in full power mode, nice and docile in 130bhp mode got rained on, blinded by the sun, frozen solid, contemplated selling it got home had a beer and planned the next mods
  8. Turned off half way through snobby elitest two hats !!
  9. If as duck says they are no good to me, I use M16
  10. could you take a side profile pic of both sides ? Id be able to tell from that
  11. If they are M16 calipers i.d be interested
  12. I've had one for years and i agree they damn good tools. I use mine mainly for steel and it copes with it well
  13. the merc clutch pulley is way to big, in order to use it would have required doubling the size of the crank pulley to get the right ratio. The thing with the car is on full power map the car is an animal and very tiring to drive, having the option of switching it off is great it makes the car more usable day to day and as far as i,m aware unique...
  14. Nothing to do with mapping, it's to do with the twin throttle body set up and bypass valve, at cruising throttle the engine load is light keeping the bypass open meaning no boost. Slight change in load and plenum goes from vacuum to positive pressure closing the bypass and giving massive torque instantly. Meaning trying to cruise at 70mph is hard work. Thus the dual map and lo boost option. IE cold, damp, cruising, missis in the car mode.
  15. i have always used the raceline water rail on my zetec and in all the yrs ive had it the cooling on the car has never been right. ive suffered from over heating and overcooling more so sense i supercharged the engine, i wanted the cooling to run at approx 90deg but could never get the raceline to do it temps would range from 120 to 80 due to the thermostat being located to far from the head. So i try the davis craig electric water pump system, intially it was very disappointing but after discussions direct with manufacturer they came up with a solution which with the raceline wouldnt work properly. i get a retroford water rail and find that its not quite a direct replacement needing a coilpack bracket making and the dipstick moving slightly, not a bad thing as this gave me the chance to make a custom bracket for the coil and fuel pressure reg that had always been mounted in a temp fashion. once fitted up with the EWP the car now has quick warm up and and stays close to the target 90deg. the ultimate test was on the dyno yesterday, the car maintained target temps on the dyno, probably the harshest teat you can put your car through. the dyno operator even commented on the fact the car maintained temps perfectly. so raceline v retroford retro is better in my situation ( it works) Davis craig EWP and digital controller, great bit of kit that that does the job well, but dosen't as claimed give you any BHP increase...(in my case anyhow)
  16. I have now got a car with dual identity, as you can see the boosted map ran 242bhp and 256ft lb of torque (same as before) which is great fun but hard to drive when trying to drive steady on a cruise up the motorway. so i have been trying to figure a way to hold the supercharger at bay which i have now designed and tested. so went to the the dyno again to get the 2nd map rewritten the car is is now truly awesome, i can have a normally aspirated easy to drive car with 130bhp then flick a switch on the move and have 242bhp making the car fast as feck !
  17. Black top head fits the silvertop? How much bhp could it be worth in Na form could be a mod for the future.
  18. My box has these 1st 3.36:1 2nd 1.81:1 3rd 1.26:1 4th 1:1 5th 0.82:1
  19. Looked at this a while ago. The V6 type 9 has the best ratios of all the budget options imho. The torque you will have with the charger will be wasted on rx8 ratios just my opinion thou others are sure to disagree. I run the the V6 ratios in mine and it works well. When I find one I want a 3.54 diff which will make it near perfect
  20. I.m not working that day, so may pop over in the banshee ..
  21. Forgot to update this, it works a treat at the flick of switch I can turn 100 odd bhp off, cruising is now possible, just need to get the the economy map rewritten as i think the ignition is retarded as it is no longer seeing boost on the map sensor
  22. Ideally you need it tig welding, which most body shops garages won't do or have the kit. I have mig welded stainless before with the right wire and gas but tig is better
  23. Some good deals this week, just picked up a full set of 3 tool cabinets for £229 and a set of spanners 8mm to 32mm 25 spanners for £50
