  1. We've got the rubbers in stock, and the A-panel trims should be able to be removed without breaking, just need new tape to re-attach them. Had the guys here last week, they re-used the trims, so the new ones they brought with them are still in the Autoglass system somewhere! Dave
  2. It's the exhaust dripping condensation out of the slip joint. They all do it, some more than others, depending how decent the joint is. Dave
  3. I've never done it, and the service manual doesn't look too helpful either. However the labour time guide says 0.3hrs to replace, which means they must just pull out, but (disclaimer) I'm not 100% having not tried it myself. Dave
  4. The ducts behind are fixed rather than flexible, so just make sure it's aligned, then give it a decent shove to clip it in the last bit. Dave
  5. They just pull out and push back in. Sometimes need a tease with something to get them out. Dave
  6. Yes, we have a 350 type QT exhaust in stock. Dave
  7. It would. We have also modified the cat that comes in the KT kit to adapt to the 2bular V-band, for previous customers, it's not that difficult a leap really. Dave
  8. Oh yeah, I've re-read what you wrote now... 🙃
  9. For 10k, I'll do you 475 and get it collected/delivered. Deal? Dave
  10. Lee at Apex Car Transport has done a lot of transportations for us - highly recommended. He's based roughly in the middle of your two locations, so that might work well. Dave
  11. Sorry I thought you had MIL on - I must read properly! You should be able to observe the O2 sensors activity using a generic OBD reader via live data. They should be "switching" between 0.1 and 0.8 volts on a steady throttle. Post-cat sensors can be a bit "laggy" compared to the primary sensors. The ECU is generally pretty good at spotting a failed O2 sensor and giving codes - less so a failing sensor. With external breathers, I wouldn't expect too much bother with the MAF sensor or grime accumulation in the intake. Sounds like a bit of an odd situation you experienced. Dave
  12. O2 sensors on track cars, yes, not uncommon, they get a very hard time. Also seen issues with non-geniune (though appearing to be genuine) sensors - we always use genuine Bosch, and verify them via the Bosch system. MAF sensors, if your filter or breather system is allowing dirt or heavy breathing into the intake, then possible, yes. Breathers on track cars can cause problems. Surprised you got MIL with no codes, never seen that. Have seen them clear themselves with ignition cycles (as designed). Were the ABS codes checked? Dave
  13. Thanks chaps. It's not really going to change much for us. Gives us a bit of freedom back with options for our customers - those who want genuine parts, fixed servicing schedules, etc can still have it, but we can also offer alternatives where appropriate.
  14. For those interested, our position is explained here: https://bit.ly/3kAcjlS Dave
