    I think you will need a saloon specific one - even though the front doors are the same I think the saloon has a lower profile rain guard.

    I'm not convinced that forging is required as early as some do it. There was once a VR4 running 500 bhp and 450 lbft on TD04's and had stock internals.

    Emissions can cover anything though. Obviously exhaust, ecu, tune, boost, air intake, but you could also argue that changing the ride height of the car changes emissions. Certainly wheel/tyre size does - you can see that on manufacturers websites. So what modifications can you do that you can guarantee don't change the emissions? I know you've signed, so not trying to convince you, but just pointing out the potential land slide from this if it goes through.

    That's the difference between cartridges and full turbos - they are limited with space on increasing the vane size with stock housings. So full turbos should give a bigger improvement than the cartridges I bought.

    I've got upgraded cartridges from them but haven't managed to tune the car properly on them yet. Those are a better spec than the cartridges, but what is possible from them I simply don't know.

    235/45/17 on a 8" wide with a +35 offset is going to be getting close to the rear arch with the sidewall. Within a few mm. There are always options but if you go wider/lower offset then be prepared to have to solve rubbing issues.

    Intercooler, exhaust with down pipes and decat or high flow cat, fuel pump potentially but with a fuel pressure regulator if you do. Tune. That will be enough to take a second off your 0-60 time and make the car feel a lot more lively. Your headline power will not increase by much, but the peak torque and area under the curve increase by a very decent amount.

    Yes, but....! The MAF in these cars is a Karman Vortex type, so there is a grid in the air flow that generates vortices which are in turn sensed. For this to work the flow entering the maf needs to be laminar. Many intake systems create their own vortices and if the air entering the MAF has already got a swirl going on then the MAF tends to over-read the air flow and supply too much fuel, causing lower power and worse consumption. Therefore if you change the intake, look VERY carefully at...

    Stalling issues can happen with VTA. I run an HKS SSQV and if I dump at high pressure and then keep the clutch pedal pressed the engine will stall. However I can drive around that and the child in me likes the noise!

    I know that some items are shared with the eclipse, but as we don't get that in the UK I am not sure I can help too much on the specifics. There is a company on the internet called Amayama that seems like it is set up to source parts from all over and ship them anywhere else. In the UK we use Viamoto - I am not sure if they would ship internationally or not. Hopefully someone will be along to help at some point.

    I don't have one, but there are two white versions. One is solid and is on prefacellift cars. One is pearlescent and is on the COTY special edition prefacelift and facelift cars. Just a heads up in case you get the wrong white. Sorry for your bad luck.

    Nice name! Evoscan is not reliable with DTCs. Flashy Dash is the only reliable method IMO unless you have access to very expensive Mitsubishi MUT equipment. Your acceleration issue in the mid range, is it like you have lifted completely off and back on to the accelerator pedal? The whole car jerks quite violently. If so, this is likely to be fuel cut, which is either too much boost or a boost leak. In any event it is caused by the MAF seeing more air than it thinks it can supply fuel...

    Nick Mann replied to a thread Head Gasket Replacement in Engine
    There are a lot of coolant pipes in the engine bay and a small leak in a pipe will give similar symptoms to a failed head gasket. Most head gasket failures (and there aren't many) are down to running high boost on standard stretch head bolts. Davezj has done this job I think? My memory is that the rear head does come off with the engine in the engine bay but it is awkward at best.

    Love the Max Power comment! I'm with Tim on the induction comments, but with a slightly different main reason. The MAF is very susceptible to air flow changes so if the flow over the MAF is not linear and uniform then there is a very good chance you will not fuel correctly. Most pod filters will either give more flow in the middle or a slight vortex. This usually leads to over fuelling, so a loss of power plus even worse MPG. Where are you in the UK? If around the midlands there are a...

    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.
