    Not sure which bit the solid bushes are for, but I have skateboard bearings at the gearbox end of my cables. https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?59194-gear-linkage-bushes&p=655173&viewfull=1#post655173 Also by chance I happened to re-read this thread today: https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?63569-Bits-that-will-make-RAOUUL-handle-better&p=701287&viewfull=1#post701287

    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.

    Err.... You will likely need a 90 and a 45, rather than two 90's. I hope that's what you found in the link!

    the original auto boxes were pretty good. that is what i fitted along with the correct ecu after my second gen box got trashed after a heavy launch. never had an issue with the auto box since I must have 100's of launches on the auto box, pre and post engine rebuild, with high boost, high torque at low rpm. the above launches are also a good way to trash conrod and crank bearings. especially if you use crap engine oil. never go cheap on engine oil or ATF.

    do you have a link to the thread you did about full idle setup using evoscan to lock the stepper motor and set the idle with the BIST (Base Idle Set ???) screw. https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?78733-Idle-issues&highlight=BIST+screw post 10 gives a good description of what to do to set the idle correctly if you have adjusted the BIST screw randomly.

    Davezj replied to a thread Head Gasket Replacement in Engine
    i have been running 320hp plus for the last 10 years and it easily handles this. i had 320hp on 1.1-1.2bar boost pressure. the reason i had 3 engines with head gasket fails is because i run the turbos with with no wastegate pipes connected so they boost as hard and as fast as they can. full boost 1.6bar at 2500-3000rpm. massive torque very low down in the rev range is lots of fun to play with, but it will lift the heads if you have standard head bolts. my point is i have not dynoed my...

    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.

    I have done head gesket replacements on the 6A13tt engines. engine out is a much easier way to do it. unfortunately in both of the engines i have done the head gaskets on, once the engine was out and the bearings were checked it was found they needed replacement. so what was originally a head gesket job it turned into a full engine rebuild. you can take the rear head off the engine while it is in the car, but would not both it is more hassle than it is worth. just drop the engine and...

    The fog lights look like standard facelift items to me. Try googling ganador for the mirrors and seibon for the bonnet.

    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...

    If you have a facelift you may need to change the steel pipe that feeds the intercooler. (The one behind the front foglight.)
