  1. anything been happening in salisbury mate?

  2. I think everyone needs to meet mr water injection tank and mr filter
  3. ahhh i have them now mate, cheers for the offer though, i haven't checked the knuckle joint, i'm pretty sure its the inner tie rod joints as the knock is very well defined when you hold on to the column close to it
  4. Is it ok to run 100% water? its just if i run out of methanol at any point. I thought people usually set them to come in at the top of the boost? I may get mine to come in at just under a bar then.
  5. Water injection has been ordered, what pressure do you have yours kicking in lee? What mix are you running on it?
  6. That picture isnt of a gt4 thats a gt.... I'm in cornwall too and have gt4, ive been trying to raise dosh for help for heroes, just be prepared to no one replying to you cause i have emailed so many companies and had no response off them at all its such a pain in the *****.
  7. You should leave yours at 2.5 bar :D Its a pity i cant have an mr2 turbo, it was what i was looking for in the first place but not practical as a 2 seater but its 200kg lighter pretty much than a standard gt4. Whats it like on track i have heard the chassis isnt the greatest but its mid engined so its always going to be decent. Can't believe im away from all the action down here :S
  8. ahhh leeky you git i was looking at them. Same name on the OC you should know me i'm an afghan vet as well haha 420bhp around 400lbs/ft of torque at 1.4bar for now.
  9. Whats everyone been up to guys, you got a project thread lee, anymore vids? I need to change the inner track rod ends on my car cause they are knocking like hell so much play in them, just a bugger they cost 60 quid each: Going to change the power steering pump cause when you park next to a wall or car so you can hear the sounds of the pump when you turn the wheel it sounds like a steam train.
  10. Good write up, good work, unfortunately you can't satisfy everyone, don't worry about the moaners hopefully this will help many people.
  11. Good call on the actuator, i wouldn't say its the turbo as you would really know about it. Before checking the actuator i would go through the basics and check all hoses for splits/leaks. Might be worth checking your car for error codes aswell, you can find out how to do this here www.gtfours.co.uk amazingly helpful site

  13. Well went to see Ryan G today at surrey rolling road, was an hour late due to hunderford being market day and roadworks. The day started terrible i had to knock a gasket for the turbo up as mine new one had not come, really was a rush and i just thought its only going to get worse................ but it didnt ryan started mapping it, and the hp started steadily increasing. He was very impressed with the AFR's out the exhaust he said they were quite steady, fuel was good and it spooled well, so atleast i did something right. Anyway we got we got 420bhp at the flywheel, approx 326 at the wheels i think, it would have been higher but the spring in the wastegate wasn't strong enough to hold the boost. So once i get a new spring it will be going back to him to be mapped to 1.6bar. There's still work to do on her though so may keep her at 1.4bar while i add my tweaks here and there. You can tell the turbo has not come alive at this pressure after being in dawseys and other peoples cars plus some hearsay i know around 1.7bar the turbo goes mad. Its damn quick but not lethally quick if you get me. 3rd gear is just stupidly good We just printed this graph off as it was getting hotter so little less power than the vid On the dyno, 420bhp Me dicking around afterwards, really sorry i didn't realise i was holding it cockeyed :S, hit some VERY sudden crests and car jumped up quite a bit, loved it Can someone edit the title so it says mapping page 46, i can't see how i would do it
