  1. Looking at the tyre through the boot isn’t a good sign!🤦🏼‍♂️
  2. As far as I know they’re pretty bombproof, when I got my ecu mapped they raised my rev limiter to 7300rpm😂and it quite frequently bounces off the limiter in 2nd and is still all holding up good. I read that the vanos can give bother, but I’ve not had any dealings with that side of it yet thankfully.....
  3. Great engine choice there Andy, I put an M52B28 in my E36 daily driver last year and love it. Not sure what mods you’ve done to your commodore engine but I did the M50 inlet manifold along with a mapped ecu and what a difference. I actually thought about the same engine for my Manta for a bit there too.
  4. Oh perfect, A series axle is exactly what I need then! I need a narrower axle so the 9 inch back wheels can still turn should I burst an airbag👍🏻
  5. Can anyone tell me the differences between the 2? I believe the A series axle is an inch narrower, can anyone confirm this? Also, what diff fits in the A series axle? Can a 2 litre or 1.8 B series diff fit in an A series casing?
  6. Would love pics of your yanks too Shaun😊

    Track Manta

    Love this car, remember it on eBay last year. What size are your revolutions? 8’s?
  8. Doesn’t matter, as long as it produces adequate light it could be stuck in with chewing gum and it wouldn’t matter. The tester won’t be inspecting the bulb holders anyway as it’s not part of the test.
  9. I really like your adverts mate, wish everyone wrote them as well and honestly as you👌
  10. Different to how mine is wired but mine was originally a carb so no old loom to confuse things. Like evo3 said, get rid of the GTE engine loom and just use the XE wiring.
  11. On mine there is a thick red/blue wire in a 2 pin black plug on it's own right next to the ecu, I have that wire going straight to the fuel pump positive, I don't have the thin red/blue in the green plug connected to anything and it all works as it should. Do you have the thick red/blue in a black plug next to the ecu? Can you stick up a couple of pics?
  12. The blue/red wire on the green plug on the XE loom you’re speaking about is your live feed for the fuel pump. As my car was a carb originally, I just ran a wire from there direct to my fuel pump. My pump only comes on when the engine starts cranking and cuts out when it stalls (as it should) Sounds like your pump has either been wired from a direct ignition feed or your possibly someone bypassed the fuel pump relay causing the pump to run all the time with the ignition on? Has it always been like this or is this a new thing? edit - I think it’s blue/red, will check mine tomorrow to make sure.
  13. Yeah 1.8 mounts for engine and box and the 1.8 box will sit exactly where it does now. As Rutts says, the lip in front of the heater box requires either cut away or just bent down around to fit the water pipe on the redtop head. I just bent mine as I didn’t want a sharp edge but some prefer to cut the lip away....entirely up to you....
  14. Yeah I'll upload more once I figure out how to get them on an image hosting site from my phone.
  15. Do you still have the beige mk2?
