Re: no oil pressure

Non return valve is fitted to some engines to stop the oil draining back down into the sump after you switch it off. I remember I forgot to refit a component once, and the valves were tapping pretty much every start up.

Re: Minty.Fresh BN Sports Altezza

Made some changes to the JZX110 turbo intake to accept the JZX100 idle control valve pipe. http://i1176.photobucket.com/albums/x327/peter0991/2014-10-21171659_zpsb2ebad19.jpg Since I'll be running an oil filter relocation kit along with a cooler, I decided to bypass the oem oil cooler since logic te...

Re: Beams Turbo Setup for Sale

Is that a question or a statement?

Everything is sold apart from the straight pipe exhaust, and the gearbox (minus the bellhousing)

Re: Altezza J160 3SGE Gearbox

No crunches whatsoever! Only a slight input bearing whine. But can be easily pulled off and a new one pressed on since the box is already open. But as I said, drove with it like that for 2 years no bother :)

Re: Minty.Fresh BN Sports Altezza

I have a friend using the gold stuff on his intake pipe on an mx5. He said that it reduced the intake temps of the air a lot, because the pipe doesnt heat up as much without it!

So yea, it does work, but its a bit on the expensive side. :wink:

Re: Altezza J160 3SGE Gearbox

£150 posted to Finland for the bellhousing and all clutch related parts that you mentioned.

Why £150? Because after that the box is useless to me or anyone else without the bellhousing.

Re: Minty.Fresh BN Sports Altezza

Amen twiglett. Sometimes I wonder why I even post on this forum, haha.

Well, an is300 prop will fit and I think is200 is similar length. Manual altezza 3sge is 930mm from memory and is200/300 is about 880mm... But dont quote me on that.

Re: Minty.Fresh BN Sports Altezza

Its pretty decent. My bulkhead heat shield was all ripped and looked very untidy. So I replaced it with tape.

Re: no oil pressure

No one going to suggest that the oil pump might be dying? Seems like it takes a while to build up oil pressure.
