Re: Brix's R3. 'Blue Magic'

The kit won't fit.

Only the one line between coolers should be the same.
The other two that actually attach to the engine use proprietary fittings.

Mishimoto do a set though, if it comes to that.

Re: New look COFS what do you think?

I have also used Millers Nanodrive CFS NT+ 10w50 fully synth for as long as I've had my COFS adaptor fitted and it's one of the few areas where I actually don't have a leak. A public advert seems like a bit of an odd place to bring up such an issue, as if it's a problem with the product, when eviden...

Re: And the compression results are in...

The front stack has been undone and partially removed while horizontal... there's a decent chance that the thrust/torrington bearings have slipped and will be crushed if reassembled which would write off a few internal parts. Saying that it'll run is a load of BS. It needs some further disassembly a...

Re: Crank Sensor Replacement

The crank trigger wheel CANNOT be fitted incorrectly.

The holes for the bolts and locating pegs are not evenly spaced to ensure that there is only one possible orientation that it can ever be fitted in.

Re: Coil pack testing

Magnecor leads I've tested have been at the low end of the resistance scale and could be 2-3 times longer and still be within spec from what I recall.

In fact, some pattern leads were about 3x the resistance already, at the same length.

Well, about 3000x more likely than flooding.

They really don't run rich enough at idle to flood. Stoich is literally the opposite of rich.

Re: For a giggle...

A customer of mine used to have an E63 before I knew anything about them. I remember being in it with about 3-4 (very much full-size) adults and being very confused about the acceleration. Wonderful thing it was.

The only thing I can think of to rival it would be the new turbo hybrid Panamera.

As above, coil springs are measured in linear movement in relation to load... whereas ARBs are measured in angular movement in relation to load.

Without hearing what it sounds like or seeing the comp test results, we could only hope to begin speculating. It could be a number of different things at this point.

Re: How many cigarette lighter ports?

Easiest way I've found is to install a fuse tap in the cabin fuse box.

Then hook that up either to the camera or via a [12v -> 5v] USB step-down unit.
