    Euro question - 23rd June

    Why not leave NI completly and there wouldn't have to be a hard boarder.
  2. Buy a mechanical Stack boost gauge and plumb it into the boost circuit from the inlet manifold ...this will give you a real boost figure which you can compare to your electrical dash gauge.
  3. Yeah...a good few years ago now......about 6. Removed the whole abs crap system, SE pump on a custom mounting plate where the ac was....feeding a Nissan patrol servo with an audi a6 reservoir, adjustable proportioning valve between front and rear....and a bleed valve so I can adjust the amount of servo assist....this all feeds to the s350 brakes up front and s350 rear discs with 4 pot calipers on s300 brackets for the rears keeping the original brembo calipers for the hand brake. This setup totally changed the car......would never go back. .
  4. I ditched the ac on my S4s and fitted a mechanical pump and it works a treat.

    Oz futura radinox rims

    Barry....I've 25mm spacers on the rear and 10mm on the front is my S4s without any issues...and really fills the arches out nicely. When I get to rebuild my wheels...this is what I'll be increasing the size of my rims by.

    Ian's S4s refurb

    Looking very good'll be amazed with the difference when you're finished. I used a manual vacuum pump in place were the aircon pump is......creates a lot of vacuum.....keep up the good work.

    Time to start explaining

    Just wondering if you could remove the oil sender and attach an oil pipe line and pump oil into the engine under pressure....this should get to all the needed parts and also prime the pump.....when you know the oil has circulated....turn the motor over

    Oz futura

    You could just search for the centre pieces and then buy new polished outer rims and inner barrels from this I'll be rebuilding my wheels soon replacing my outer rims with new 1/2" wider rims this company.

    Wanted Stevens esprit rear hub units

    My hub snapped while doing 80mph on the motorway on the way home from the UK on the day I collected it...the whole suspension on the drivers side collasped....fairly scary moment.....did well to keep it under control....took a while for the smell of poo to disappear from the cab
  10. The rear brembo callers are the same ones used on the Renault espace

    The standard lotus rides too high and looks strange, even odd with so much air between the top of the tyre and the wheel well......I lowered mine 25mm all round and it looks so much better and gives it a wider stance on the next setup will be the Nitron racing shocks.....the best out there....LOTAC are overpriced for what they are. I think the standard height is 160mm measured from the chassis to the road.

    Oil Pressure and Temp Gauges

    What I meant by the edu controlling it was......the ecu will not allow full power until the engine is up to temperature.....even on my old 95 S4s the ecu restricts the amount of boost until the engine is up to temperature

    Oil Pressure and Temp Gauges

    I presume the ecu controls this in modern cars

    S4s clutch release bearing

    from memory my S4s flywheel didn't look like that......has that flywheel been lightened? I don't remember my flywheel having a radius step on it like yours.....I have heard because of the big difference in price...people swapping out the S4s flywheel and clutch assembly for the earlier SE and S4 assemblies.

    Delco-Moraine ABS Deletion

    The existing bracket can be adapted and if required and you can get a universal push rod from Demon Tweaks which can be cut to length and attach the original clevis to......just make sure you get the right thread pattern
