Re: Low compression - carbon?

I'm not convinced by Cataclean personally but it can't do any harm. At that mileage tymoniasty I'd be tempted to replace the coils, plugs and HT leads. And do an oil change using some good quality oil. Other than that as the others have said already - drive, drive like the wind! Be sympathetic, but ...

Re: Window tints

I asked if the code could be shared through the club which they were very happy with, so I presume it will be on for a while. That one has for the last two years by the look of it :) I had forgotten I'd ordered this and was curious to find out what the 'big effin envelope' was that turned up in logi...

Just fyi, you can fill the 6sp from the shifter tower ;) Phil, Can you expand on this a little please... It's exactly as it sounds Terry - remove the shifter and pour it in! It does mean removing the centre console though, so unless you are doing this anyway or your car is light on interior trim li...

Re: Window tints

I've just gotten around to ordering a set of these (it's only taken a year :)) and will post a review with lots of pictures accordingly. There is a current discount code: Lemgo2016 which brings the total down to £105.30 delivered.

Re: Recall for software, plugs and oil cooler lines

It’ll be interesting to see what pump assembly they are fitting if this is replaced. I’ll have to swap out my R3 unit for an old one before I book it in :)

Re: Baaa!

Just bear in mind it doesn't take much variation in the surface you are parked on for the arch gap to differ. Unless you are on a perfectly flat piece of ground it's going to look lopsided on one corner or another ;)

Re: 4-port lower inlet manifold removal

Good work. For purely information (informelon for you Nick) purposes, you can actually remove the 6-port LIM with the engine in situ too, but it's such a faff and you have to remove so much you may as well whip the engine out and be done with it.

Re: Pete's RX-8 Time Attack project

Sorry I'm a little confused as to why there is any, er, confusion :-k I've probably missed something, but it should all be the same for a triple-ganger. Yes you should ensure that the coil is depleting before the next charge event occurs for maximum efficiency - if it's still discharging, as soon as...

Re: Needy Alarm Constantly Going Off!

Hi and welcome! False alarm activations usually are due to RF interference however you have ruled that out already by disabling the intrusion sensors. The next most likely possibility is a faulty door/boot/bonnet switch, followed by a wiring fault or a problem with the sounder unit itself. Do the in...

Hi Jimmy Riddle, a couple of answers: How tricky is it to replace the Aux / air-con belts and water pump on these? Easy peasy Spark plugs seem to be a bit of a faff. Is this just an access issue, or are plugs prone to seizing or snapping in the block? As long as you use a UJ on a proper spark plug s...
