Re: R3 AC pump/compressor

When you change it.
Make sure there’s no swarf in the lines Etc.
Or it will be a early death for the new compressor.
You should also replace the drier.
Vacumn down the system min 30 minutes (Longer the Better)
Add the correct amount of PAG oil and A/C gas.

Love these Merc’s.
That’s quite high spec as well.
Possibly because I spent nearly ten years working at the Dealership.

Re: Low Mount Turbo Kit development 29/12/20

Well I take my hat off to Carl.

With the time effort and funding behind this project.
And no doubt will sell a quite a few kits.

Shame there’s no room for a Turbo on the Sprint Project
Hence why I’m going the Supercharged route.

Re: R3 Sohn

It actually pumps very slightly less, most of the time, just through 6 jets rather than 4 jets. Under normal road conditions an R3 "consumes" less oil than an S1, assuming that they were both being driven the same. However, on track the R3 will consume slightly more, as the control curve from the P...

Re: R3 Sohn

Doesn’t the R3 have three oil injectors.
Also the R3 actually pumps more oil into the Chambers.

Re: Possible purchase. Need advice please.

My advice would buy the best you can afford.
Buy with a compression test (That shows the true state of the engine).
BigPete shows the test results 👍
Give it a good road test from cold taking it up to temperature and restarting..

There’s loads of tips to keep them running sweet.

Re: Does the RX8 need XL tyres?

If you go onto the Michelin or Pirelli tyre websites.
And do a search on recommendation for the RX8 they both say XL tyres.

So I’ll say for for the XL
The RX8 isn’t a lightweight at around 1400Kgs.
Weight is almost the same as my 4dr Diesel Mercedes.

Re: Just got an RX8, but it seems broken and my garage dont know hot to fix it.....

Your complaint would be with ECP
As they supplied the Spark Plugs.

If you still have the D585 I’ll get them tested.

Do you still have the old Spark plugs.
Could you post some pictures of them.

Ford CV grease is green.
Not sure if it’s dark.

Not in the location you ask.
But a lot of the Mercedes Forum guys use and rate Wheels in Motion in Chesham Bucks.
