    Sr rebuild

    Few years back I ran 440ish on a standard engine with Poncams. It was okay for a while, but to be honest the only thing that made it lose power was the exhaust valves leaking. At that power I’d be more worried about the gearbox depending on how hard you drive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upgrading cams

    I’d get new rockers as well. Springs will be fine, I used the kit from Ferrea. As for the pulleys, I stuck with the standard set to keep VVT for a long time. Once the GTX3071 went on though I went with a set of fixed pulleys. Depends on how far you’re going. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Replace diff? ABS?

    Just to add if you are dropping it low then slow for alignment arms all round and roll centre adjusting ball joints. That’ll keep the geo good and help get rid of bump steer etc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Replace diff? ABS?

    Camber wise I’ve got 1deg in the back and 2.5deg on the front, there’s no additional wear on the tyres. It’s more toe that can cause tyre scrub imo. I do drive on some shite roads and it doesn’t scrap or run tyres, probably would with soft springs though. There’s a bit of room still on the...

    Replace diff? ABS?

    9.5 on the back fit okay with just the arch lip rolled. It will only catch if you get air lol so could do with maybe 5mm more offset. Fronts are 9” and to run a 245 tyre I had to go to 30mm wider wings. I’ve only got about 2mm clearance to the coil over so no option to move them in. It is...

    Replace diff? ABS?

    To be honest that’s what I’d go with to keep the power similar to what it’s at now, but the delivery of the power will be completely different. The V8 will have tonnes of torque from idle so will be more likely to spin up compared to the laggy SR at low rpm. I still think it’ll be okay though...

    Replace diff? ABS?

    Just to add, if my SR blows up I’d be going LS as well so good choice. Would be great if you post up pics as you go through the change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Replace diff? ABS?

    Diff will be strong enough, it’s the same R200 in the S14 and I’ve never known anyone to blow one up. They get changed only to fit a better locking diff, assuming yous has the helical diff that the spec r has I’d keep it as is. I track mine with around 500bhp with no problems. Sent from my...

    Sunroof issues

    Just to add if you’re checking voltages you should see around 12v, not 24v [emoji106] The sun roof mechanism from mine is laying under my bed so if you want to see anything let me know [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I need to replace power steering pressure line hose . The one that connects to the pump. Is it a interchangeable part?

    They look the same between s14/S15 from what I’ve seen, think I’ve got a couple in the shed. It might be tricky to replace with the engine in as the flexi is all one part with the hard pipe that runs across the front subframe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    S15 project

    I never used the rear seats so I kept the harnesses fixed in place using the rear seat belt mounts and put them over the side of the seats when not being used. There’s enough slack to do that without un clipping them and you can then just use the normal seatbelt. It’s all the same now, but I’ve...

    Headlight Restore and Trunk Rattle Fix Video

    You’ll only need the clear coat to stop the lights going cloudy again. I used the kits maybe twice, after that they went foggy really quick. Last time they were cleared and they’re still good as new. I’m pretty sure they were coated with 2k paint and from a spray gun so maybe that’s the key...

    Had the old girl properly cleaned

    I’m not one for cleaning cars, other than a quick wash, but it was time for a proper clean, polish and wax. One of the lads at work is a trained sprayer etc, he had already cleaned the headlights and coated them with laquer to stop them going **** again.... He then popped round to sort...

    DAB aerial

    Hi Guys, anyone got experience of fitting a DAB aerial into an S15 with factory tints? Google suggests it will work okay, it's only aftermarket tints that cause a problem? I've got a new Alpine head unit and aerial on the way and seeing as my sunroof is now bolted into place and doesn't move...

    WTB: Aero side skirt front part

    I'm looking for front part of the drivers side skirt that bolts to the wing, preferably in Pewter but not too fussed. Anybody anything laying around, may consider a complete set of skirts at the right price. Cheers :)
