wow mark you must of spent a fortune on this car in just a year. fair play. it looks great. glad your still enjoying it. i do miss this car was great fun to drive.
I was still getting poor MPG after fitting both lambda's and the light was still on. Alex came round and plugged in he's laptop/clip and turned off the light for me. It was also saying that the pre cat lambda wasn't connected. We looked and it was but it was slightly loose. I remember when fitting it that there was no clip on the loom side for it to clip into. I went to work and got some thin cable ties and looped them around both end of the sensor to hold it in place. MPG is now back up to 34-36 :smile:
I decided that I didn't like the black cam cover so I took the inlet off and covered everything up and gave it a few coats of silver, along with the lower inlet.
Noticed that the car was making a slight ticking noise so I decided to use some valve treatment on it. Put in in a drove around for a few days then I redid an oil change to help with it. Id already had the oil/filter anyway and although it had it with the belts, it was piece of mind for me. The tapping noise has clamed down also. Its now had 3 oil changes in 11 months.
Top work :smile:
I could do with a bodge on my front bumper. It's busted on one side just like yours
Love this car, do you prefer this or your bg mate, honest answer.
If you could swap it back would you?
More than welcome to come to my workplace Steve and we do the same thing on yours?
Cheers Tom :smile: You know what, I loved the BG but I do prefer this. I love the front end and the fact its OEM+. I also like the fact it feels smaller and I like its simplicity on the interior compared to the BG. plus its easier to keep clean!
I need to replace my lambda, nice up dates mate. Loving the sliver inlets. :smile:
Makes me want to drive mine again.
Some of it was still there, I had to delete about 4 times as much code from the bloke quote below! If you need anything changing then let me know and I'll edit it in, I just cleared the huge amount of code below the actual photos which posted. Sorry if anything disappeared 😧I got them from G172. I wouldn't want to fit them again though, too bloody awkward to get too!
Silver looks cleaner too :smile:
I think I deleted it before you sorted it? Nevermind, i'll redo it tomorrow Jamie.
Yep that's what I thought you meant. its the only bit left on mine I haven't changed over yetWhat I meant was orange side repeaters. Thanks Graham :smile:
My mates selling red magnecor leads. There sweet because their my old onesThanks for all the positive comments guys
As mentioned, it's not a mint car. Far from it in fact. Bodywork need attention but I'd rather concentrate on the things that need doing mechanically and get the mods I want on first before I look into the body side of things. It's nice to change a few bits that are cheap enough to change as well, such as bushes, clips, moving components, etc. The car is now 13years old and parts will need doing but it's getting there.
I don't plan on getting rid anytime soon so I've got plenty of time to get it looking better. Tbd it's in pretty good condition for the age and mileage but a bit of Jekyll TLC over time will get it better
Next to change are bonnet stay and clips, side reapeters back to orange, swap my gear knob go my newly resprayed one, lower shock bolts front and rear, washer pipe clips, throttle cable rubber, and possibly orange front indicators o
I will be doing a Ktec style induction kit and possibly red Magnacor leads.
