Re: Hard Coolant lines along Valve cover

Driivng an RS500 at Monaco

Just in case many of you have never heard of rFactor, it's an excellent skinnable driving game. Pick the car, pick the track. Open up photoshop and paint your car.

Too much fun.

Cossie housing or not you'll only make 300hp with a stock turbo.

A quality dirty filter will be better than a clean cheap one.

Notice that my GSX-R 1000 (sold) and my Jaguar say to change the filter every SECOND oil change.

There are lots of filter sites ou there that compare the FL1-A filters. Choose as you see fit.

My last quote from Tweeks was £90 for four wheels.

Remember they do massive amounts of shipping and get great rates.

Keep drinking that Kool-aid kids. Along with all those companies that will offer you 40mm drop springs for your car. Coked up turbo? was it 25 years old? LOL. Seriously, if you are anal enough to have a turbo timer you'd never have a coked up turbo. You actually change you oil once in a while, not j...

$160 is about what you'd pay for shipping PROPER offset wheels from the UK.

Pass.

Rip that $#!* out. Turbo timers were designed to sell turbo timers. Oil coking? Tell me how many turbo oil feed lines you've seen coked 'n choked at the entry point? How many turbos that you took apart were coked up? Remove the turbo timer. If you have a turbo with no water cooling simplify your sys...

I have it on my steering wheel so that at high revs when I'm matching revs with the clutch it doesn't activate.

The steering system can be a two wire with ground system. A second channel is possible.

Don't part it, see if he'll sell it whole. Many icelanders could use some extra cash these days.

Shipping would be not fun.
