    Double your gas mileage

    If youve got a carb'd engine, you could try DIY water injection based on manifold vacuum. Carb'd usually means the engine is using a dizzy, which you can then advance a fair amount depending on your water injection levels. Thus more performance and more mpg, do a search on it through google...

    Help mivec or not????

    Having driven both, i wouldnt say there is a massive difference, just the sound of mivec on the v6 engine is awesome! Get the GPX if youve always made cars something better than standard, GR if you want a neat run around, actually, just get GPX! From memory, 2.0 v6 GR runs circa 180bhp at...

    1.9D (from a 306?) in z 106?

    speak to spoox, pugoff, any dedicated engines company. Quite a mean thing your trying to pull off! Expense your looking at 1k MIN, engine, gearbox, fabricated mounts,driveshafts,ecu,loom,connection to dash loom. Engine will be very heavy in a light car so front end will be everywhere round a...

    Recomending First Car :)

    technically you shouldnt be driving the car more than them, else you would be the MAIN DRIVER. CITROEN AX, Very light, very cheap, cheap to repair. CIS do an anydriver policy inc under 25's, get your parents to ask them about it. Not tooo sure if its still available.

    Whats your hariest moment behind the wheel?

    As a complete novice driver, leaving from a field and going round a corner on mud slick tyres, to face the traffic behind me. No damages, just a good lesson learned!

    Are blue headlights legal in the uk?

    neons distract other drivers as its not a familiar sight to see lights anywhere else than the middle front of a car etc. HID lights appear blue, but nobody argues the toss that you get blinded by them and the only benefit is for the driver of the HID dwelling car who appears to see everything in...

    If you clean your car all the time, you become used to the idea of how it looks when its at its best, leave a car to settle for a couple of months and then clean it, best day of your year :P

    Single Wiper Conversion

    But then its not going on a clapped out heap is it. Versace use alot of gold on their designs and its ok, but if nike did... you get my point. Still think it should be in the middle position, pretty boy :P

    Are blue headlights legal in the uk?

    Spain and spain again, for a month! One of the best holidays ive had in a good while! Cheers for the PM :D. To be honest i dont think they would ever let anything mechanical get through, lights arnt doing any harm to anyone and he seemed to think they were legal as he didnt say it with a wink etc!

    Each to their own, Mothers clay bar system with detailer and polish. Microfibre clothes. back to black tescos for wheels and trim. old newspaper and some water for the windows. never clean on a hot or cold day. My latest antics dont involve cleaning, just a got lot of dust.

    Are blue headlights legal in the uk?

    My local MOT were quite happy to pass the lights provided the beam pattern was the same. Cant see them being too much of a problem, better than those on BM's and Merc where you drive past temporarily blind.

    What are the best mods for a Citroen Saxo?

    thermostat wasnt sealing shut fully, (took ages to heat up/very low running temp) Switched it over for a slightly higher rated stat and runs near on the fan cutting in, MPG improvment of about 8, and a heater matrix that blows hot air 8)

    Vege Oil - Bio Diesel

    hahaha that made me laugh so much, so what we are saying is that if you wack some veggie oil in, you will get better MPG, what about performance, and how much is the veggie oil per litre in the first place? if i was to go out and stick some in a 307HDI it would work fine? Can you run completly...

    As far as im aware at the moment the product "K-Seal" i got off ebay for a tenner has fixed a head gasket leak, which would of cost me 700 quid to have fixed at the garage, fingers crossed it keeps up! oh and everyone, you really should flush your radiators, the amount of cr@p in them is...

    Bigger engine time! If you were to take the Cat off you would have much beter throttle response and the car would rev more freely as there is less back pressure, you can get a sports cat but then the money on that could of been spent on the straight pipe and ecu trickery. Remeber that the...
