Re: apexi power fc problems!!! HELP!

the power fc should be able to control everything straight up, it doesn't like a mechanical throttle. They are known to be very temperamental with earths especially. I've never heard of this before though

Re: Low idle when warm?

Mine does this. I had the battery disconnected when the car was sitting for a month and it would stall when it got warm. It's not so bad now, idle is low but it had reset itself and doesn't stall. Worth checking your tps voltages at the ecu, use a digital volt meter though! I had loads of idle probl...

Re: Inconel Bends for Exhaust Manifold

I think It's just too thin for a turbo and soft engine mounts probably didn't help. I used to work at SSTT making f1, indycar, wrc manifolds which were obviously inconel and the f1 and indycar stuff was 0.7-0.9 but they only did 2 or 3 races before getting binned. The oval track stuff used to only d...

Inconel Bends for Exhaust Manifold

Got a ton of inco bends kicking about and need rid as they are just taking up space. Heres the ebay ad http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/-/181890753710?ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:GB:1123 I avoid using it for a turbo though, I made an inco turbo manifold out of this stuff before and it kept blowing up :( Just mak...

Re: IS300 - Fully Converted to RHD - BEAMS Motor - Driving Issues HELP!!!!!!!

not sure if G1 does mean generation 1 but there was a "facelift" version. It was in late 01 IIRC. So the engines before 2001 use the 36 coilpack and post 2001 uses the other coils. They are definitely not interchangeable, I tried it a while ago and blew a pack after 10 mins. It's a bit of ...

Re: Wierd Sounds

on the side of the throttle body where the tps is there is a plastic cover, you have to take the tps off to get the cover off. Under the cover there is the motor and a few gears which operate the throttle. It shouldn't click like that, I think it could be either one of the gears or the motor is dama...

Re: My First Build

Cleaned up the turbo housing so that bits of ali don't melt off and hit the turbine. Came up surprisingly nice! http://i1295.photobucket.com/albums/b622/toshamov/IMAG0797_zps8xcecxfk.jpg Started doing some intercooler pipes, pretty easy really just had to move the ecu box a little to make space.

Re: Water Temperature

That's the thermostat. Mine was sitting at a quarter after the 2 hour drive just after I bought the car and it was a faulty stat. It's an absolute BITCH of a job, need some major nimble fingers and having the headers off helps alot. There quite easy to get hold of and only cost about 20 quid. Pretty...

Re: Altezza turbo project (Ireland)

Nice one glad to hear she's fine! Would be interesting to see how much difference swapping to a tubular manifold would make. If you can't find one locally let me know I'll knock you one up
