    Vectra C - Cheap tuning mods - under £100

    Why do they do this ???

    Stop and go are polar opposites. Why is it so difficult to remain stationary ?? Yet the self same creepers are unable to get on with the job once the lghts are green?

    Vectra C - Cheap tuning mods - under £100

    You're not going to get much at all for sub £100. If it was me I'd blow it on a couple of meals out.

    intercoolers, some more equal than others?

    Thanks for reminding me about the delicacy of rads etc. On balance I think I am probably more lucky than skilled when it comes to using pressure washers. If you saw the state of my car you'd understand. If you got inside it you'd be well advised to have your jabs firstly :)

    intercoolers, some more equal than others?

    Exactly what I meant. I have done this many times with intercoolers and radiators. Very very carefully indeed. Perhaps I've had luck on my side, too. Not many throttle bodies to be found on a diesel engine.

    intercoolers, some more equal than others?

    Diesel engines are especially 'good' at the oil mist intercooler inside coating trick. TCJ is also right about bug remover on the outside. It's also a good idea to use bug remover on the OUTSIDE of the coolant radiator, the AC condenser rad and any engine oil and transmission oil coolers. You...

    Low or hi profile's ?

    I am always puzzled why Pirelli's P6000 is still available. It's an early 90's pattern. Pirelli itself has far better tyres available now.

    WARNING - Beware of JR Tuning in Kent

    Rob Bentley is the stereotypical entrepreneur sans morals. People such as him see no shame in launching and bankrupting a business. Loss of opportunist investor capital is reasonable - people invest in the hope that they will make a profit. It's their risk. With customers' money I see it very...

    Good fun FWD cars

    I was thinking of standard tuning really rather than heavily modified. 300bhp in a Corsa would be fun to drive, possibly not for all the right reasons :D

    Not sure I'd put a Corsa at the very top of my fun to drive list.

    Low or hi profile's ?

    Agreed. whether it's 13" metal and 10 inches of sidewall or 22" metal and 1" sidewall the rolling radius is identical.

    Low or hi profile's ?

    How do you propose that would work? It's easy to set a notional and arbitrary bar. Would that autonomously fix the overall gearing? No.
