Ok so bit if his history first. I had a abs fault about a month or so ago, plugged diagnostics in and had an unknown fault code, did a live data run and found the L/H abs sensor was reading a different speed to the other 3 sensors. So assumed it was the L/H sensor issue. Replaced...
Ok, so bit of history on the fault....
I had a slight issue on track a couple weeks back, wheel came off the hub slightly due to bolts unwinding themselves (I did check aswell before anyone comments, i checked after 15-20 mins of track and it was fine, wheel came off 2 hours later)
I was lucky...
Bought myself a stud and nut conversion the other day and got them fitted yesterday.
Im on track tomorrow and donny (hope the weather holds out lol) and wondered what every one who has this kit or similar torques the nuts too?
Do you just got with standard or a bit more?
I had the tracking set today as I fitted some camber bolts
It was set at -2.2 deg on the camber, and I had the toe set to parallel
The tracking was done on a hunter alignment system, so was a fairly accurate system
Since getting this done ive noticed I've been getting some slight...
hope your all enjoying the nice weather on the bank holiday :)
i have been doing a check over on the Clio today, make sure everything is ok etc etc.
also plugged in the diagnostics to get rid of the eml from the decat. Whilst plugged in I was having a browse through some of the...
Recently fitted an RS2 inlet manifold, I noticed there is a small like ring on top of the exhaust side of the cam cover where a seal sat between the cam cover and original inlet.
Well on this part of the cam cover I noticed there's a tiny pin size hole, probably 1 or 2mm diameter.
Thought id share a few pics from my first ever track day today
I didnt get any vids unfortunatly, but ill probably be looking to buy a go pro soon as ill be doing more trackdays soon, and would be nice to capture a few on vid.
Theres a few of my day, I was a little nervouse at...
im trying to remove my rstuner map as requested, I'm having a custom map by Mike from Mike Woodford Motorsport.
But I'm having a touch of trouble, or I am doing it wrong.
The way I thought about doing it is read the Ecu then read cal to remove the rstuner map,
Then write Ecu and...
just wondered what the difference is in sound with an exhaust with the perforated type tail pipe like piper and the single box scorpion system, compared to a non perforated tail pipe like on the rs192 system and yozza.
I know the exhaust it's self will obviously sound different from...
just looking at a couple of new stainless clamps.
But was a little unsure of which size to go for
It's a 2.5inch exhaust, so 63mm roughly. Looking on tinterweb, it seems there are 2 sizes 59mm-63mm and 63mm-68mm.
I'm assuming it would be the 63mm-68mm clamp id need working off the...
So I think I've finally decided I'm going to go with a piper exhaust on my 182
But I was just wondering what decat pipe people have used with these exhausts?
I know you can use the scorpion/yozza ones as you get the connector. But I was hoping to use a sleeved one like the milltek or...
has anyone got one of these recently? Or know where to get them from?
Ive tried Adam at Wolverhampton Renault, also tried Colin at wests Renault, I tried my local Renault.
But none have stock anywhere for them.
Could do with getting mine changed
I think I'm going to be getting a new centre section with silencer for my scorpion system
Can anyone recommend a decent exhaust place in the midlands?
I was debating on custom chrome in Nuneaton since they're a 5 min walk. but I've heard mixed opinions on them
or does anyone know...
My RS192 is blowing at the decat to centre joint and is a bit annoying.
Now I was looking at going down the sleeving option, but after doing some searching I found the pipe before the silencer is 2inch and then steps up to a 2.5inch through the box or just after so I can't get it...
I'm looking to fit my engine mounts this weekend.
I know how to fit the mounts, but when I did some searching I seen a few people on here mention about if they're fitted 'correctly' they won't vibrate as much?
Now I'm not overly bothered about vibration as I had vibratechnics...
Just got myself a RS2 inlet :) Before I fit it (can't wait), I thought I'd give it a tidy up and give the carbon a bit of a polish.
But I am unsure of what polish would be best to use, also would you wax it after and what wax would you use?
I have a small collection of polishes...
Wasnt sure if this was the right section or not, but here's goes anyway lol
I'm in need of some pics and opinions of what people have done when painting there cam covers.
Ive recently bought an RS2 inlet so looking to tidy up my cam cover and head etc now it's all going to be exposed...
I've got a slight oil leak in this area, I know the gear selector is also a common leaking point so that's being changed, but I'm just thinking whilst I'm doing that and an oil change I may aswell get the boot changed.
Has any one recently bought an O/E one? I'm just trying to work...
hope you all had a good Xmas :)
I'm just in the middle of fitting my whiteline arb (while the dry weather lasts lol)
and was just curious what settings people tend to run it on?
The current set up is standard shocks and cooksport springs.
The car may see the odd track day and that...
I'm planning on fitting my cooksport springs next weekend (can't wait lol)
And thought since its apart I may replace the top mounts as I can get them through work, I have 2 kits available though.
One of the kits i can get is just the bearing and mount itself, but the other comes with...
So i finally got round to visiting a rolling road.....
Luckily there was a garage i deal with on a day to day basis who has a hub dyno, so thougth id get him to stick the car on it to see what it was pushing out
Was a little gutted when i wasnt allowed into the room as it was their health and...
Finally got round to doing this, the engine bay looked realy dull and boring before and just needed to broought back to life some how.
Heres how it was 3 weeks ago
and approx 20 mins after it looking like that...
2 weeks ago i had made a little progress....
Not long after that pic i...
I've got a scuff on the rear O/S arch/quarter I'd like to get sorted.
I've been to one place so far and they've quoted me £200 to spray the whole quarter panel, now this guy is a pretty decent guy and did a good job on my dads kit car a while back.
But I just wondered if there was...
So I finally got myself some powerflex arb bushes. Thought I'd have a go at fitting them earlier today. I got the outer bushes on not a problem, well was a little diddly and the old bolts and nuts were a pain so replaced to make it easier to out together.
But I'm having some trouble...
Thought id finally get my first thread up :)
So after doing much searching I find a lot of people say they find their exhaust blowing using the aftermarket fitting kits.
Now I had a scorpion rs192 exhaust and decat pipe fitted by a local exhaust fitting centre that I supply parts...
