Re: Minty.Fresh BN Sports Altezza

Agreed! :)

Damn, I wish I could find one of those red Altezza badges at a reasonable cost! Annoying that you can get nearly any badge on ebay/from China for less than £10 but not one of those (not that I've seen anyway!)

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Had a chat with my go to guy on diagnosing he reckons it's little end. Big end would make a heavier noise. The reason it's only at 2.5k is because it's not that bad yet so it only does it under load. First thing is to whip the plugs out and have a look at them for oil deposits. If number 1 is all o...

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Yeah it's a tricky one as some info does seem to support one theory and then other info supports another! LOL Its gonna probably come down to looking in the end as I always thought but any supporting evidence could guide me :) Worth stopping to look at things in summary that Ive either found or pres...

Re: Beams 3sge engine and full conversion!

I may consider just selling the engine and keeping the manual bits myself so i can manual convert an auto altezza. But not the other way round, wont be selling the box and clutch etc seperate. PLEASE DO NOT ASK! Probably not an option for me due to costs involved but if you did split the engine fro...

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Definitely! Major thanks to you and Tosh and everyone else that has offered ideas and things to look for :) My mechanic/technician mate came round to listen this morning and after a brief moment of hope when he said it could be a slack cambelt hitting the case (which he had, had before) we ruled tha...

Re: A JDM Daily driver.

Nice one! :) Great thread and looking forward to following it :)

Let me know if/when you replace engine internals and what standard stuff you have spare - depending what I find inside my noisey engine I might ask you to post them out to me to replace mine! :lol: LOL

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

ok, so this might sound dumb, but i'd do it. ......... take a screwdriver, then use it to "listen" to the engine. putting it to your ear. and at various places on the engine. (beware the belts of course) . unless you have a mechanics stethoscope.... if it's inside the block, you can hear ...

Re: Engine Knocking/Rattle! :(

Thanks Tosh :-)

I think my next step is to get a second opinion and then drop the oil to look whats in it and decide from there.

Also might try running engine with VVTi solenoid unplugged at some stage to rule that out.

Re: white_is - IS300 never ending build thread.

Looking great :) Really like the look of your car and only thing that slightly bugs me is the exhaust not being central in the bumper recess but that's my OCD! LOL) The rear lights look awesome - did you paint or tint the inside? Those new centre rear lights look good and just need a bit of toothpas...
