  1. Never seen these venting/pressure equalizing pipes between carb and plenum before!
  2. Isnt it so that the voltage you meassured is without load?
  3. Did you fit height adjustable shocks at the front?
  4. I am waiting for an answer from the same vendor on torque setting for the ARP cylinder head studs. So far 1 week has passed!
  5. There is also Mickey Thompson. but no idea about how this tire behaves, and there is no suitable size for front tires.
  6. 17” is a good option, but spoils the shape and look of the beefy rubber 15” wheels. But do offer a variety of good street performance tires However, I much prefer the original 15” BBS. To me, the tires on the Green Esprit looks like these Toyo
  7. As said, I am aware that they have a smaller circumference. I will call the speedo off; not way off. Its not that accurate anyway. The thing is that I like the 15" wheels, with plenty rubber. But there is not many alternatives when it comes to proper tires. I had the Continental, which is a great tire, but I am loosing grip. Now I have BF Goodrich, and for me; they are the nono. Propably great on a Ford Explorer. but do not have the same road feel as the Continental. In regards to the engines higher rev, I wish that I could find a better suitable tyre with the original rati
  8. Has anyone Experience with Toyo R888? They make them in 235/50R15 and 195 or 205/50R15 I am aware that they have a smaller circumference, but has a really good bite.
  9. I am doing the same to my 1984. Engine apart, just started on the cylinder head. Do also have the nikasil liners, fitting an aftermarket CAC, Garrett GTR3071 and Jenveys throttle bodies. And like snowrx solution for the trigger wheel.
  10. You can not use spray coating on a crankshaft. Metal spray do not bond to the base material, but laser cladding does. And further, the limited heat input by laser cladding will not cause cracks or tensions afterwards. So post heat treatment is not required.
  11. It can be done by laser cladding. With this technology the heat input is only 10% of conventionel welding. Hence no cracks. The crank is steel forged. Not casted. What kind of welding have you been offered?
  12. Hi Laika Can I ask if you remember the inner diameter of the rear lower link bush? I have bought the LOTAC poly bushes as yours. But they dont fit! (Or fit too easily!) The inner diameter of my rear link is 35mm, whereas the bush is just a bit more than 32mm? The upper is a different story, as the apparently are some aftermarket links. Lars
  13. Hi Jon Which kind of silencer did you use? Lars
  14. Hi Ben I am interested in a complete system for a G car. With 3" rear system. Can you make this with a 3" V-band connection to turbo? Is there an O2 sensor bung at the TC exit pipe? Lars
