  1. Agreed Ian. I'm more than happy that the same pump is used as OEM for several charge cooled motors that are of bigger capacity and much higher HP.
  2. You read my mind Barry. Been trying to score a can of brake and clutch cleaner all day. May as well be asking for unicorn tears, everywhere is on lockdown.
  3. Cable arrived today so straight outside and revealed TPS showing .51 at tick over so about bob on. The temp readings were also raising on the readouts suggesting the ECM temp sensor is fine. Reset the IAC which momentarily lowered by a smidge then back up into the teens tick over. Swapped out the IAC for a spare and identical performance. Looking like vac leak is the last remaining option. Pump not arrived yet but when it does ill strip everything back out and check the piping again.
  4. Pnm are still working and posting daily if that helps.
  5. Rattle or wadding burnt out not a problem. Wanted for a little side project.
  6. I would be cutting and inserting a 200cell cat into the de cat pipe. Would probably sort your booming and still give enough noise to worry the Fokkers
  7. I know the sound well... So do my neighbours lol.
  8. That's a great offer thanks. I'm hoping to source an old standard exhaust system so will keep you posted and in mind. Out of curiosity how much louder was she when you swapped out the old cat?
  9. If all else fails any good locksmith should be able to spring the 1980s locks fairly quickly.
  10. If you haven't used those door keys in a while they may well be gummed or seized up. a gentle wiggle, turn and patience may be all that's needed. A small amount of WD or similar may help but make sure you blow it out with compressed air at a later date or it will just attract further crud in future.
  11. Ha ha, no worries Barry. Hopefully someone else will have one lying around. Steve Strange has one in but I would rather my beer tokens stay 'in house'
  12. Star man Barry. I intend to keep both set ups but I have to get her pinging hot to get through emissions so a quiet system to go on for MOT time is always an option. My local garage always take the Michael somewhat when I arrive with any of the 'loud' ones in the fleet (particularly the Ducatis as they are bloody shouty!)
  13. I currently run a Larini with a 100 cell cat but would like to see how much quieter the standard back box is. Has anyone got one taking up space that some beer tokens may be swapped for??
  14. Noted Derek. Once the pump assy is in place I think I will rip the plenum back off again and check everything over once more. She wont be going anywhere for a few weeks so no hurry really.
