    Turbo blankets

    yeah, was looking at a carbon fibre one the other day which had vents in the centre and at the sides. Thats what gave me the idea to try and get as much heat out and more cold air in to the filter. Recently fitted a cool air wall in on my filter and was surprised it made a slight difference.

    Turbo blankets

    Think I'll leave the blanket idea alone for now, wrap up the manifold and maybe customize an intake on the induction side of the bonnet. There's just no room at all to feed more air up to the filter!

    Turbo blankets

    But will the turbos work at a higher temp? And will this cause any problems?

    Turbo blankets

    Has anyone fitted these? And do they make much difference in under-bonnet heat?

    new gto owner with power problem

    I had a non turbo before the GTO TT I have now, and I sort of had the same problems. With mine it was the head gasket- just didn't have any power in it at all but would drive ok normally, and as for the 'check engine' light- my exhaust temp light used to come on after I'd hammered it not the...

    gto mk2 headlights

    yeah mate its very easy. Get yourself a heat gun (I got mine for about £16). OK, pop your bonnet and remove your headlight bulbs-they'll just twist and pull out. You'll see three bolts securing your headlight-remove these. The fourth bolt is located behind the indicator, remove the screw in...

    gto mk2 headlights

    I managed to re-wire in some sidelight bulbs after a previous owner down the line somewhere had bodged in some LEDs. They work fine now but aren't very bright. I only put them in as a legal neccessity when I was advised to by an MOT inspector. But he wasn't 100% certain himself. Anyway my...

    alloy radiator gto

    Had everything stripped out of my mk2 gto tt the other day, just about to put in a new alloy radiator only to realise there were two holes in the bottom. I know from my mk 1 that these holes were filled with sensors, but are blanked on the mk2! Are there any blanking plugs or something on the...

    gto mk2 headlights

    yeah my twinturbo is an import, same as my 91 mk1. I was told it was a 3000gt but it's not. What's the score with sidelights for an import then in uk? Found problem with lights. Where a hole has been drilled in the bottom of the light cluster, the metal contacts that hold the bulb in the hole...

    gto mk2 headlights

    Got an M.O.T coming up and one of my sidelights doesn't work. Whoever had the car previously at some point has fitted LED bulbs at the front of the headlight housing. (And it looks like a six year old has done it). Anyway I've pulled the wiring out and replaced them with normal bulbs, trouble...

    GTO/3000GT Loss of boost

    Recently replaced the turbo induction hoses on my 3000GT and since have noticed a severe lack of response in boost. The boost gauge flips up even faster than normal (stock gauge at the mo) but with no actual pulling power. The problem seems obvious as I can hear air being sucked in from under...

    3000gt steering wheel replacement

    Has anybody fitted an aftermarket steering wheel on a 3000gt? What's the best way to wire the horn back up cos I've had to remove the srs clockspring assembly and that contained like a gyro for the horn, cruise control srs etc? The only option I can see at the moment is to coil a length of...
