    Cracking read Isaac. Really good to have a proper objective review. I know the march that way is inexorable, and there is a certain rose-tinted view of ICE, especially for petrolheads. We should probably have one ourselves, but the main barrier is the initial outlay required. Your review has given us food for thought (I've been boring Amy senseless, er, I mean, discussing the finer points of your lengthy tome with her!), especially with you saying you were surprised to find it within...

    There's a set of codes in this post: https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?22930-diagnostic-codes-complete-set You only need to short pins 1 and 4 on the OBD-II connector near the driver's knee, using a short piece of wire or a paperclip. This is a representation of the connector: ---------------------------- \.01.02.03.04.05.06.07.08../ .\09.10.11.12.13.14.15.16./ ..------------------------

    You can currently get Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 tyres for £70 a corner. I keep thinking about getting a set of four until they're needed! That's based on 225/45R17 though. It looks like Kumho only do PS91s in 18" to 20" though - are your wheels 18" or more? Mid-range, you will get a few votes from owners for Falkens. Then there's the original fitment Bridgestones... Difficult to say from the reviews though. Tyres can be about as subjective as oil choices! For goodness sake...

    If I'm not too late (sorry!), I'll have another two USG tubs of AZO please. Or 8 quart bottles, I guess!

    I'm *still* waiting for my pump to need one after more than 12 years ownership! Perhaps that's testament to using Amsoil ATF in it for all that time. Mind you, the facelift may need one at some point, I guess!

    I always like to check the reason one needs a replacement AYC pump - is it not providing enough pressure? It's the number one issue with AYC pumps, but can be easily and inexpensively resolved, usually for many years, by fitting an adjustable pressure switch. If so, Malc MPBVr4 is your man - he must have supplied hundreds of these now!

    Lift pump could be goosed then. Which is somewhat of a PITA to sort out as you either need to drop the tank or cut a hole under the rear seat (on the opposite side to where the main fuel pump housing is) for access. Obviously, the latter is frought with danger! It's livable, and certainly easier to cope without than it is to fix! The only way of assisting it when the tank is getting low is throw the car round a left-hand bend to slosh some of the fuel over the hump to the fuel pump side!...

    To be honest, those new AFRs could easily be stock values. I've certainly seen loads of VR-4s dip below 10 on the dyno! And yes, all VR-4s have a single O2 sensor from the factory - located in the downpipes just before the cat. How has it NOT been running rich before now, without an O2 sensor - what sort of setup do you have? E.g. after-market ECU, remap, MAF delete, etc.?
