  1. Thanks for all input. Yep have read up and I am pretty sure I will go with the chip 3. Thanks again
  2. Hello S4S - has 3 inch cat-less exhaust, alunox manifold, BOV, larger 2ndry injectors (RC).... I was going to run Chip 3 - high torque as I won't track it much.... Is there a better chip for my set up? Or should I play it safe and stick with the stock map? Thanks for any input!
  3. Hello i have purchased one of these : to try to take the guess work out of the belt tension... could someone please advise on the correct tension for a OEM belt ( I think it’s 100 ftlbs?) also I might fit a “Blue belt” has anyone got a sweet spot tension for that in ft lbs? Thanks for all help
  4. Hello i see sjsportscars do a centre exhaust system for the 4 cylinder. is anyone running one? How does it sound? Are they restrictive at all? I would be running without a cat thanks!
  5. Wow Chris...thanks for the amazing write up....exactly what I needed. Brilliant.
  6. thanks....that sounds very appealing. Do you have any tips on doing this? what system did you use to convert to injection? Al.
  7. Hello i have an 88 turbo (carbs and Renault box). Everything is working well at present but I would like Injection and the increased HP the chargecooled engine offers and being in NZ just buying an SE is not a viable option. If I get an engine with ancillaries is it a matter of a fairly simple swap or will this be an involved time consuming ordeal? Thanks in advance
  8. Two won’t fit on one tab on the sender but I will check continuity between the two. I suspect it is a redundant double up on wires.
  9. Hi when I ground it out it acts just like the other wire and swings the needle all the way to the right. It’s like a redundant extra wire to the gauge.
  10. Hello having initially a wobbly temp needle on throttle on an 88 turbo and then a complete gauge failure I went looking for the sender and yes it was wasn’t too clear on the Internet forums so here is a picture to help others its up front below the timing belt on the water pump. But can anyone answer why there are two wires going to the gauge (one of mine remains disconnected - is this ok?) cheers
  11. Hello. Wanting to update my 88 turbo esprit. Does anyone have or know anyone thinking of selling an SE S4 or V8? Please let me know on 0210519518 Thanks! Al
  12. Hello First post.... Great forum! I need a 88 turbo mirror switch as I lost a few of those little copper dumbbells/rods that make up the switch mechanism... Can't find a complete switch or any of the rods. Can any one supply or suggest where I can get a switch or the rods to fix my switch. Thanks! Al
