  1. Time to buy a lottery ticket
  2. My old hatchback. The matt black may not be to everyones taste but its a very good car with a great engine.
  3. 2.0 gte air box

    I've got a spare adaptor kicking around for the airbox to fit a normal round air filter onto. You'd need to make your own bracket to hold the airbox and filter up but thats not hard, the K+N piece is just a bent bit of metal from memory Oh and the K+N adaptor is for a square fitting air filter which i believe limits you to the K+N only
  4. Hi there

    Nice to see you back Clive, can't wait to see what you have planned for the next one.
  5. Rear brake shoe adjusters

    Removing the halfshaft will not affect the lsd install in any way, or require any new seals (as there are not any on the shaft). When you say you researched it where did you find that information? have you got a haynes manual for it
  6. Calibra turbo front calipers

    Disc size is not really relevent to master cylinder size, piston size is more so. But even then the only real difference most will see is the pedal travel before the brakes start to have an effect. The most common brake swap for the Manta in the UK is 256mm discs from an Audi with astra calipers marked 52/24. After that is the larger 284mm discs from a sierra with the early calibra turbo calipers (also on calibra v6, cavalier 4x4 + v6) marked 54/24 with these i normally also recomend rear discs to level out the braking performance.
  7. Passed with no advisories

    Never doubted it would sail through an MOT, after all it was screwed together by an expert Still think it wants something done to the rims like a silver painted lip or something to break up the black of the rim from the black of the tyre
  8. 1986 Manta B Fuel Tank

    Ccorrosion in the tank can be repaired, there are risks to it if you do not know what you are doing. But with experience and patients you can clean the tank of residue, cut out the rotten area's and then weld in new steel. You can also convert a standard tank to injection by adding a baffle inside it and using an in tank pump. Or if you do not want to play with it yourself there are plenty of companies out there that will repair and reline your tank for you. Whilst it isn't that cheap you will then have a tank that is good for another 30 years. Also its a lot easier than finiding a good injection hatch tank.
  9. 2.4 Engine C24NE Wanted

    Some very useful information there for the CIH engines but i'd still just fit a C20XE
  10. Its thanks to Stoo2000's amazing work he found a work around after the last forum update was enabled.
  11. Quiafe Differential

    Is it for a 3.67 or 3.44 ratio CWP?
