    E36 best diff for upgraded M52

    You would think so. The computer wouldn’t recognise the car’ ECU was the excuse they gave.

    E36 best diff for upgraded M52

    Cheers mate The only dyno in town won’t test it because it’s ‘too old’ or some daft excuse like that, so I might never know the true power figure but I’m not too bothered as long as it goes

    New Coilover rubbing/squeaking sound?

    No new bushings as the ones on the car were recently changed. It seems to clunk when the wheel is being turned. The car doesn’t have an MOT yet so I haven’t driven it extensively yet. It’s a hard sound to describe, its a mix of springing, clunking/knocking but it is bolted up right

    New Coilover rubbing/squeaking sound?

    I have recently purchased a set of fairly cheap (admittedly) coilovers for my car, I have fit them and set them up to get the right height but when I pull the car out and take it a run around the block to move it, the front coils make a strange noise. It sounds like a mixture of rubbing and...

    Braided brake line blistering

    I’d need to dig through my invoices, but in sure they were rated for Road and Track. The DOT of the fluid is a standard 4. I have replaced the faulty line this morning actually and the pedal firmed right up. I’m still keeping an eye on it, but so far I’m putting it down to a manufacturer error.

    Braided brake line blistering

    Hi, technical question here. I have fitted braided lines to my e36 and have tried to bleed them, but found that one of the lines had blistered (the translucent plastic casing that protects the metal lines had turned brown and fell apart). I replaced them but have now found that the plastic...

    M54B30 TB Cable Conversion

    Hi all. I happened upon an M54B30 Throttle Body in a scrap yard when I was buy my 17" 5er wheels and the guy generously let me take it for nothing. On closer inspection, the TB seems to be wire driven rather than the traditional cable. My question is this, is it possible to convert the TB...

    Turbo ECU Help

    Hi TCJBOLDIE, thanks for that info. Will definitely take onboard what you said about the remap. It’s just unfortunate that the nearest rolling road wouldn’t even entertain me when I went to speak to them! That’s life I suppose. Cheers

    Turbo ECU Help

    Hello, I am planning to Turbo a little EP2 Civic I recieved a while ago from a friend of my Dad's. The car is in ok shape but since it only cost about £150, I was thinking that it would be a great platform to learn how to Turbocharge. I have read an awful lot of articles regarding Turbos so I...

    Plastic Overfender/arches

    I have purchased over fenders (arches) for my car as the tyres stick out past the arches, which I believe is illegal. To rememdy this, I have purchased plastic fenders which hide the wheels under the arches. This was not what I wanted to do but the wheels on the car just now are naff...

    Camshaft Replacement

    Hi folks The camshaft in my project car is trashed and I'm looking to renew it, but without paying £600 for a professional (on a real budget) and its the sort of hands on job I would like to be able to do. Has anyone renewed a camshaft before and would be kind enough to pass on any advice (such...

    Corsa C stereo upgrade

    There are blue male inputs in the car which stick out for the old radio unit to slot into, these however, force the new adaptor forward and cannot be moved or taken away

    Corsa C stereo upgrade

    Hi all. I recently sold my Rover 25 in order to buy a much more sensible '51 plate Corsa C 1.0. Unfortunately, the original radio/cassette stereo system packed in after 1 week :( I sourced a used aftermarket JVC unit and an adaption kit but the wires in the back of the new stereo stick out...
