    Ok here is evoscan setup and actuators for different cables. cheap cable form ebay £5 read only cable (equivalent to open port 1.3) see the cable selection setting top left required for open port 1.3 equivalent £5 cable see also the actuators in the bottom right these actuator will work for the EFI ECU so you have control over the injectors, fuel pump, rad fans, etc.

    well as promised here a very quick version of my testing. cheap £5 cable will, monitor all data point in evoscan. will allow you to activate the atcuators on the EFI page only (fans, injectors, fuel pump, etc) it will not allow you to active ate the AYC actuators. the tactrix 2.0 cable will allow you to

    Adam, don't tell us the price until you know what the full cost of the purchase is, so you don't get stung with extra VAT and duty when the parts actually arrive. it is quite common for a letter to drop through the door a week of so after getting the parts and having to pay the vat and duty and the handling fee for the letter. i know you have been stung with this before.

    ian don't you have evoscan already? if so why dont you try your reading cable to activate the pump and valves.

    you do realize you need 3 people to do the lock to lock method, one doing the steering, one topping up the reservoir, one doing the bleeding on the diff. and it is dangerous having all 4 wheels spinning on axle stands. i will see if i can test the cheap reading cable tomorrow after work. to see if i can forcit into operating the pump and valves. then you only have to spend £5 on a proven reading cable.

    you will not get a working tactrix cable for £18. unless it is a reversed engineered one from china. got to tactrix website to buy it they are about £180 i think. the cable might be available as a knock off, but do you want to risk bricking your ecu to find out if it works or not. you are better off getting an original cable or wait for someone else to try the cheap cable on the AYC bleed test.

    personally i have used the openport 2.0 cable, but you would have to try it on the cheap cable. i know the cheap cable will only read data so i am not sure if it will activate the pump and solenoids. it will not harm to try it. you will need a long usb cable if you are doing this on your own as you will need the laptop under the car with you and it plugs in to the car by the drivers left knee, so i think 5m cable is needed. you get to the AYC ecu controls in the bottom right of the...

    You can bleed the AYC rear diff with evosacn. activate the pump to build pressure and opperate the vales for bleeding the lines. very simple to do and it is one person job.

    Hi there Ibraheem, the under body is completely differet from VR4 to none VR4. you will have to cut the entire center section of the floor and fire wall out and fabricate the tunnel. you will also have to replace the petrol tank as it straddles the propshaft replace the entire rear ond of the car, subframe, etc. there is a lot more to it than just this, being quick with my response. personally i would not bother with the four wheel drive, and just create a VR2, this has been done before and...

    you could include pics of underside of the car and engine bay with pic of strut tops sills ayc pump area etc. as rust is the big killer of these cars. if you can show there is no rust anywhere then it would probably help sell the car much quicker.

    just a couple of comments for you Garry. your presentation technique has got a lot better much more flowing and confident. love the level of detail you go into it hits bang on the mark for me. your production and editing technique has improved a lot and it is very enjoyable to watch. you have progressed massively. your dad would be very proud. if you want a set of new injector seals for the original vR4 injectors, i can donate a set to your project as it is a good cause.

    the issues i have seen on stadard internals is with head lift on the stock turbos this is due to the factory stretch bolt used for the head. swap them out for stronger bolts/studs and the issue goes away, well something else is next in line for failure , not found that yet. the other issue is killing cracnk and conrod bearings, i believe this is down to low end torque, or more correctly too much low end torque. if you sympathetically tune the engine to bring the torque in gently at the bottom...

    Davezj replied to a thread Baffled sumps in UK Chat
    i looked into sump baffles for the 6A13tt. the lower sump holds a max 3.4L of oil when you brim it to the join to the upper sump. the engine takes to full about 4L of oil. but after looking at the sump design it was clear that the dipstick end of the sump is fine as it will retain all the oil that push in that direction. the front and back movement of oil will hit the front and back walls of the sump and there is not really any where for it to go. the crank end of the lower sump could...
