    Default Flooded ECU BOX B7

    Without pictures I'm just guessing, but it would be better to reseal it?

    Sorry if this appears a dumb question, but how did water get in? Aren't they sealed?

    What's on TCJB's 2020 bucket list ?

    The oil in the engine has been run ragged, the brakes pushed to the limit. Makes sense to me to make sure they are still able to do the job.

    What's on TCJB's 2020 bucket list ?

    Do you replace brakes and oil after a track day as well? I was under the impression that it's a good idea, though I know not where I heard that.

    Myvi 2009 performance upgrade

    No idea, sorry, you'd have to research your local businesses. Look for mechanics who know what they are doing/talking about. Sometimes you might have to visit and talk to them to get an idea of their workmanship. Anecdote time: when I first got an Impreza I took it to a local garage who had a...

    Myvi 2009 performance upgrade

    Hello and welcome. Is your car stock at the moment? How much do you want to do to the car as that will dictate the cost (plus your location, your skills at doing the work yourself Vs paying a professional, whether you are happy with used parts, reconditioned parts, if you want OE new, or third...

    i want a suzuki swift 1.6 sport 6 speed please simon

    If it makes you feel any better insurance companies make no money from insurance premiums. The money taken in barely covers pay outs and running costs. (Profits are made from taking that money and investing elsewhere, either other parts of the same company or another one.) Back on topic...

    i want a suzuki swift 1.6 sport 6 speed please simon

    In the UK? No, you insure the car as a whole. And if you dont declare your mods, and the insurer finds out (like if you want to claim for anything, or have a claim made against you in the event of an accident) they will likely void the policy from inception. Meaning you would get hit with...

    As soon as you do the second the first wont happen. IE, modding a car will raise insurance.

    Classic cars that are ahead of their time.

    But seriously, the Impreza was (is) a powerful car with steady AWD, great handling and TURBO! Before it there weren't many 4 wheel drive cars that maintained a low centre of gravity.

    Hi i am new here , but would like some help. I

    You'll note there's no power mods there. More power is great, but if you can't stop or go around corners then the power is wasted.

    Hi i am new here , but would like some help. I

    Then look to tyres and brakes. Decent tyres can shave seconds on a lap time as do good brakes (later, more powerful, braking into the corners). I doubt you'll have much of the £1000 left after that but if you do I would move to the suspension. Coilovers are your track friend, adjustable to...

    Hi i am new here , but would like some help. I

    Is this pure track only? Or are you planning on using it as a daily driver as well? Are you planning on doing the work yourself or employing a garage/mechanic? This will soak up a lot of your budget if you are paying someone to do the work, but if you aren't competent, or have the correct...

    Can I give my ‘14 RAV4 XLE more horsepower? What can I upgrade?

    A dot for a post? Unusual. To answer your questions in the thread title; yes and everything. More info is needed from you for anyone to give better answers. What is going to be used for? Your budget? Any mods already in place?

    Rare cars on our streets

    If it was it was very sleeper; not much noise at all, that I recall. I hope it's local to me (that photo being my town, about 15 walk from home) so I'll see it again.

    Rare cars on our streets

    Been a while since I've seen anything unusual, probably due to less people driving anywhere. Spotted this US Chevy this afternoon. I was about to cross the road and ask the driver if I could take more/better photos but he left just as I about to cross.

    Bit of engine vibration...

    It's not a Nissan site, it's an all car site :) But you have posted the sub forum for Nissans. I'm sure a mod will be along and can move it :) As for the vibration issue, I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than I will be able to help

    Bit of engine vibration...

    Odd place to ask a question about your Golf, in the Nissan forum. But hey ho, hello and welcome What turbo did you replace it with? OE from VW? Or after market third party?
