    Nick Mann replied to a thread Down pipe in General / Questions
    I understand that they do one, it is stainless from what I know but is stock dimensions so not a performance upgrade. I've never seen one fitted though.

    I think it is different to lower powered galants. It may be the same as the Evo 7 GTA.

    It's mostly through the wheel arch, yes. The tensioner pulley has an offset mounting point, so you loosen the bolt, rotate the pulley and retorque the bolt. Obviously, loosening the bolt can leave significant slack on the belt, so I'd be doing something to hold the belt to the cams during the process.

    All I can see in the members area is EA2, EA5 and EA6. Maybe someone else knows if there are more but I can't see any others.

    This post shows the cambelt with the engine out and the covers off. https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showthread.php?63304-Nicks-Project-Hamilton&p=701713&viewfull=1#post701713 The tensioner pully is on the left as you look at the picture, between the crank pulley and the rear cam. That pully is attached to a pivot arm - the pivot point is the bolt just below the pulley, with the pivot arm going down and to the left. The hydraulic tensioner is perpendicular to the end of the pivot arm and you...

    There are a lot of wiring diagrams in the members area, but I can't see one for the EA4A. What market was it for?

    If the engine moves back slightly then you can get some slack there. To check everything is okay, I would remove the covers for the whole cam belt and then rotate the crank by hand until the timing marks on the ca sprockets and rocker covers line up. I'd use a small square off the rocker cover as optical illusion can make it look a tooth out when it is way less. Once you have achieved this by only rotating clockwise, then have a look a the hydraulic tensioner. It should have a couple of mm...

    No, but I'd guess not with 7" width and 46mm offset. The face would sit quite far in compared to Evo wheels.

    The main difference years ago, if I remember correctly, was that AMSOIL was fully synthetic with cleaning additives. At the time it was the only SPIII compliant oil that met those criteria. Therefore it could help boxes with tarnished friction plates and it also coped far better with the generated heat.

    Nick Mann replied to a thread Timing Belt Frequency in Engine
    Original UK Mitsy guide was 5 years/45k miles. Then changed to 54k miles. In the southern hemisphere they quote 100k kilometers, so 62k miles. I have seen quite a few cambelts over the years and have never seen one in bad condition after any of those times/distances, so no need to be overly cautious in my view.
