    Sorry to hear that. Yes it's all about supporting them and keeping them as comfortable as possible. Putting ourselves in their shoes helps us understand what they are going through doesn't it.

    Adding a turbo to a mondeo st220

    Keep us posted. I've heard good things about Torque Developments. Very curious on the AWD conversion here, not sure I've ever seen this done on a Mondeo. I have so many questions. Wouldn't the Sierra 4x4 Cosworth gearbox and running gear be a closer match to the engine and your power goals...

    At Last!. I have started on my car ;-) PART 2

    That is quite a list. My TODO list is.. 1> Make a TODO list That is as far as I get, so you are many steps ahead of me. Family is not too bad, the mother in law needs daily care and support which as you can imagine takes up loads of our time, but we are coping ok.

    ABS and Traction Control Lights are on

    I'm guessing this is down to a wheel speed sensor. Has something been knocked when the pads were fitted? Perhaps a sensor wire is not properly connected or is fitted wrongly. Has the wheel speed sensor been damaged or misaligned?

    Subaru FB20 Engine

    I have a general video going up soon on porting and polishing. It's not really a DIY job though, for best results you need a proper flow bench. A 3 angle valve job is a fairly simple way to improve the airflow around the valve, and can make a difference on higher airflow projects. What are you...

    Rally Tune for 2.0TFSI

    Turbocharger, and Remap should see around 350hp, so quite an easy power gain on these. You are pretty much on the reliability limits of the stock block there, so adding better pistons and rods will ensure this works ok. Adding the other performance parts you should be able to hit the 280bhp...

    Broken timing belt

    This is typically caused when the cambelt alignment is out. Does yours have the adjusters on the cam lobe where it takes the belt to alter the cam position? Variable valve systems adjust this automatically so it might have just messed up the variable valve timing if there is one on those...

    Update on SJ Forester

    As soon as you pass 10 posts your account will be upgraded, sorry about this but it has stopped the spammers and nasties from posting stuff up on here. Thanks for your updates I love hearing peoples experiences with their car projects. Love to hear how you get on with the Poly bushings on that.

    Do things ever go to plan? I know they don't for me. Thanks for the update and congrats (sort of) on the promotion. Work life balance is important. Use the time you gain wisely and you'll be happy!

    Gas or Diesel: what’s better

    Sorry for my slow reply. I'm going to do a video this week for our YouTube channel on engine choices for an A3. I went for the 1.4TFSi which gives economy and decent power. TDI with the DPF are a problem if you are a low mileage driver and diesel prices have been creeping up of late. The TDi...

    I'm still here

    Hi Buddy, good to hear from you. I've not been around much myself, the mother in law had a fall and has needed nursing attention from us. Thankfully she is recovering though so hopefully I can get back into work again.

    Car Exhuast Tips

    Oven cleaner can work really well on exhausts, but not ideal for some chrome finishes so test on a small area first. A dash of TCUT (Abrasive Polish) with a dremmel or drill polishing tip will usually bring up a nice shine on exhaust tips though.

    Intake runner query

    The very general rule of thumb is going with a short, wider inlet runner moves the torque curve up the rev range whereas long, narrow runners move the curve down the rev range. The mismatch at the port can be minimized with a tapered end rather than sudden shelf. Your Valve job will also help...
