    Are you going gearbox too? Or will the one in there cope? There have been a couple of 4G63T swaps in the past, but I'm afraid I never knew the finer details. One of the was Dutch Driver, you may get some info from the link in this thread:

    They have become like rocking horse poo! And as such when they are found the prices are rather high. Good luck!

    Viamoto is a great online shop for parts. I'd echo all the advice above really. Without upgrading the turbos you can make the car substantially faster. If you want headline power numbers then custom pipework for turbo swap is the only way. The tubs are small, so restrictive at high revs where the power numbers are made. Having said that they can blow harder lower down the rev range, so the torque figure and area under the curve can be seriously improved. Using a G-meter for...

    It can happen if you lift off and brake hard coming to a stop in auto too. Some people have a lot of problems and some don't - hence I suspect it is a combination of quality of the valve, other boost leaks on the car, the tune on the ecu, the driver themselves etc... My car is relatively subtle to look at even though it is well modified. The exhaust tip and the dump valve are my two "immature" modifications!

    I have a whoosh noise! The valve dumping to atmosphere will mean you have a brief period of running rich, as the car will be fuelling for the air it has measured in through the maf, but has exited unmeasured through the BOV. How much that affects you depends on the BOV, the driving style, the tune on your car etc. The only time I notice is if I accelerate hard, then dump the clutch and keep it dumped. The engine stalls then, I'm sure because there is way too much fuel for the air and...

    I'd check the plugs. In doing that you'll also check the leads and coil packs. It could also be a vacuum leak - have you got a boost gauge?

    Evo valves fit. I use an atmospheric BOV, an HKS SSQV. This can lead to the car stalling in some circumstances which is for the reasons Tim mentioned above.

    I looked into this recently with Wouter but I can't remember what we decided. I seem to remember tube and fin is better for most applications? Lighter, so easier to recover from heat soak etc. I'd be tempted to see if I could fit one below the crash bar, but I'm not sure if your option 3 would do that?

    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.
