    Nice diagrams Garry - it might be worth labelling the "air intake hose" as the pre-turbo hose or something similar? For a second I was reading the diagram back to front as I saw air intake hose and assumed it was the boost reference point rather than the solenoid waste outlet point. Also worth mentioning is that if you have a facelift auto you will almost certainly need to refer to the manual diagrams, not the auto with tcl. (Unless your name is Nev.) Diagram 3 for me! :D

    Did you investigate the fault code? A flashing N light means the TCU is putting the box in safe mode because it has seen a problem - that problem should be stored as a code. Do not use a code reader - do the flashy dash method as described a few posts up.

    Still got mine. It's not been a daily for years - I was using a van for work. It would come out on evenings and weekends and it has been rare that it has hit 5000 miles in a year. However my job changed in February and I started commuting in it - nearly 40 miles a day taking a fair chunk of two hours in total. The turbos started smoking a little and the stiff suspension and lightweight flywheel/stage 3 clutch meant stop start traffic and speedhumps in Birmingham were just not fun. ...

    Glad you are sorted. I found a couple of used ones in my bolts bucket yesterday but new would always be better.

    You have a second facelift, so your chassis code will likely be 04xxxxx. That means you don't have a vehicle spŤed sensor. I think the tcu outputs the speed signal based on gearbox shaft speeds. Try askin elnevio as he has a similar aged car and has been playing with speed converters recently.

    What age is your car? The speed signal does split but I'm not sure where and as far as I know it is never grey.

    I was told on Facebook to turn to you.

    Now I'm looking for an adapter plate for the legnum to drive the Evo Clutch. Do you know where I can get them from, including the screws, etc.?

    I thank you

    Hi Nick. Just need to pick your brains about auto box oil. Had my Legnum 6 years now. Donít know how old gearbox oil was when bought her but was clean. Iíve done 30k miles since and only changed trans filter every 10k. Am doing major MAJOR service right now. Rebuilding both turbos, cambelt and water pump, new rad and intercooler, wheel bearings, plugs, brake lines, fluids etc including filters. Box oil is now bit dirty so looking to change it. Was going to go fully synthetic but donít know if will suit the box. Will need to drain torque converter anyway as donít want to cut corners so have you any recommendations?

    Hey, just wondering if youíre still making/selling the adapters to use Evo clutches on the vr4 galants. Me and my friend have a 97 galant vr4 and I was wondering if I could get my hands on one of those.

    So finally itís the lash adjusters to source. I have read a lot about how much of an improvement the 3mm holes are compared to the standard 1mm. There seem to be a lot for sale for the 6A13TT that clearly state that they have the improved 3mm holes.

    Do you or anyone you know have any information regarding if there is a
    MD151382 / MD377560 version that has the upgraded 3mm holes. I imagine that it would be worth having those in the long run if they exist!

    I don't know about sourcing in NZ, but in the UK you could do worse than pri racing.
    Remember that different versions of the same engine may need different lashers. The V6-24 and the VR4 use different versions, for example. (6A13 and 6A13TT)

    Hi Nick. I read one of your old comments and I was wondering if you could help me regarding lash adjusters for the 6A13 V6 sport not the 6A13TT?

    I believe the lash adjuster part numbers for the 6A13TT are

    Like you mentioned the V6 sport lash adjuster part numbers are different. They are

    I have sourced the rocker covers gaskets which appear to look the same as the 6A13TT but have a different code. Same with the cylinder head washers that have a different number to the 6A13TT and finally the spark plug seals which share the same code as the TT.
