  1. next car will be a TVR t350 in chameleon green :D
  2. When you mean a noise from the induction kit, is it worse cold and almost sounds like a constant metalic harsh grinding noise thats not rpm dependent coming straight from the air filter? And when you switch your engine off does it do it then (even when warm) ?
  3. £700 fully comp for the mr2 (Mods as per sig, ), I'm 29 with 2 years NCD, 5k limited miles. Adrian Flux
  4. Motorway miles, not over accelerating, knowing what gear to use :)
  5. Last time I was in Germany I was at about 149mph at 7600rpm in 6th. Just couldnt quite do it... yet ;) Hands started sweating badly and I understand fully why people wear driving gloves.
  6. Well, I guess it must do something or they wouldnt have bothered. If you're not bothered about the backseats then the most logical thing to do (other than buy an mr2 of course ) would be to whack a rollcage in. Best bracing money can buy
  7. Its not normal no. Has it always done it? My guess would be the wheels aren't balanced but I guess it would do it decelerating too. Have you had new tyres recently?
  8. You'd loose power unless you mapped for it with a piggyback
  9. Should do if it needs cleaning. I'm sure I read somewhere on a forum they got better mpg once done. quickly googled 'clean maf mpg' to make sure I wasnt going mad and its full of success stories with various makes of car. Bit of carb cleaner from halfords, quick spray and see what happens. Might as well, doesnt take 5mins ;)
  10. It could be your driving! :) not being funny, but when you get a new car it takes you a while to know how to drive it for both performance and economy. Failing that, try cleaning the maf and do an ecu reset by disconnecting the battery for a while. It wouldnt hurt
  11. If youre getting a rebuild, it would be well worth it. Would be nice on the track as you could really hold on to a gear
  12. Best way I've shred 3 stone since Jan on atkins which is 18kilos and I kept the carpet :D
  13. I didn't know you killed your mr2?! You're on roc quite a bit still. Did you try the hydrogen fuel cell? :D
  14. Touch wood I can make it still. Getting a water/methanol injection system fitted ( :D ) and it might be in getting it done. Will find out nearer the time
  15. 1240kg sounds right. It is very light considering that racing megane that Hammond had on top gear last week was stripped out with lexan windows, no stereo etc and it was about the same and they made a point of how light it was
