    Making a car more reliable

    Pretty sure an engine rebuild with uprated parts is mods! and as above I also mentioned balancing :)

    Making a car more reliable

    On an engine rebuild if you replace the head gasket with a cometic gasket, all head and rod bolts with ARP ones and ACL bearings then it's going to be able to take a lot more stick, and last longer too. A balanced crank and flywheel can also remove any unwanted strain and vibrations on the...

    Making a car more reliable

    On a basic level gauges like oil pressure and oil temp are good. You know when the oil is up to temp before you go over certain revs and also if there is a problem with the pump or a leak/blockage. Same can be said for water temp/pressure. Something like the Scangauge can monitor things like...

    Nissan Pulsar/Almera brake upgrade

    The calipers on an n14/sunny GTi/GTiR are the same as on an N15/pulsar/almera GTi. So they would fit no problem under standard 15" wheels. 256mm iirc is the disc diameter and the calipers arent that big either. A common upgrade is using Clio 280mm dics with twin pot FTO calipers.

    almera speed restricted

    You'll only find speed restrictions on import Almeras (limited to 110mph). As said, this is just your engine running out of puff. The gear ratio on the GA boxes (you have a GA14DE engine) provides a longer 5th which is really for cruising.

    Hello

    Dropping in a 2.2 would be a nightmare because of the the different looms and the fact that the more modern YD22 uses a lot more sensors to run it. The CD20 is of the oldie diesel which can actually work in your favour. As suggested (beaten to it!) stick in the CD20T from a P11 Primera. You'd...

    nissan almera n16

    Welcome :) Rotrex make a supercharger kit for the QG18DE Almera. That's thanks to one of the AOC members (Almerasleeper) going to them and asking them to make one from scratch. He got 197bhp but that was a light tune as it was a new thing so just testing the water. He's currently working on the...

    Gudday

    Welcome mate :) Yeah the N15 and N16 is called an Almera over here. Shame they didnt keep the 'N' chassis name's consistent and call them all the Pulsar like over there ;) The N14 is called the Sunny but the GTiR version is known as a Pulsar as well. Just to make things more confusing we have...

    Signs of a bad driver

    I think those three are the big ones. You often see someone on the motorway doing exactly as you say Broken Cambelt^, speeding up to the person in front then you see brake lights :roll: Either bad judgement or impatient. Either way it makes them a bad driver.

    Your height and driving

    I'm 6'2" and have no problems in my own car but it is a bit tight in some. Notably my mum's old escort. Hammond and Clarkson are definitely two sides of the scale :lol:.
