    Modifying your car? Please think carefully about what you're doing

    Do you like to wear the same clothes as everyone else? or want to be a little different? Do you want your phone or computer to be just as powerful as it is from factory or did you want to slap a i9, 4080Ti and uprate it? Do you want to go on a track and so on and so on, different for everyone...

    Peugeot 208 GTI Tuning Project

    No just cat back with the mandrel bends (no resonator but it does have a muffler at the back [didn't want it to be too loud for the neighbours]), am looking to get the rest done and sports cat, just quite pricey so a long wait if so. Don't currently have a boost gauge fitted, bought one for...

    Peugeot 208 GTI Tuning Project

    Not had it mapped after the few things added but it should be around 275/300 Nm of torque (197bhp). Which statistically sounds pretty good, but it just still feels kinda slow (at least with acceleration) when doing 40-70mph. Not sure how much HP is needed to feel more powerful but certainly more...

    Peugeot 208 GTI Tuning Project

    Was wondering if I could get some help now......... Hit a point where the next mods I was considering, are now VERY large sums of money, which is off-putting..... is there something I maybe missed, would be a good shout to get before or would help before I look into now the expensive pricey...

    New SEAT Ibiza FR owner

    Forge sounds goid but yeah the remapping is unfortunate... usually a matter of time before someone cracks new ECU's so hopefully not long for you

    Driving without Coolant

    UPDATE : Done a compression test (thanks for the suggestion!) and thank the heavens, all good, they checked the gasket and other things, all happy. Looks like taking my foot off the gas, pausing, and then driving smoothly and slow the rest of the journey may have saved the day, as I presume if I...

    1994 Skyline R33

    Hey hey! Awesome car wish I could affordf a Skyline aha. I always go to ForgeMotorsport (https://www.forgemotorsport.co.uk/) first to see if they have as they're a bit expensive but good quality products. Otherwise (https://www.japperformanceparts.co.uk) might have the parts you need. Although...

    Driving without Coolant

    Sadly, there are bubbled in the coolant resevoir, and some evarporated air the first few times. Fudge if I'm unlucky this sounds like it could've gone real bad, compression test sounds good thank you I'll see if I can arrange such. But yeah it seems to have been running fine, not noticed...

    Driving without Coolant

    So, I had my car serviced, and they flushed out all the old coolant, and were suppose to replace it with new, but later found it that did not happen. So when on the A1M my temperature speaked off red, I slowed down, then drove slower keeping it at normal, got home and realized there was ZERO...

    Peugeot 208 GTI Tuning Project

    Thank you! and indeed so :) Was surprised that at 16K miles the suspension on one of the strut's had worn off, but then again Peugeot aren't know for their reliability, and a good excuse to upograde. Now saving for the next upgrades ~

    Peugeot 208 GTI Tuning Project

    Update! :D My suspension began to wear and needed replacing, so I had no choice but to obviously buy Billstein Coilovers =))) Lowered 20mm (didn't want more due to pot holes and certain parking places at large inclines here). [old standard Peugeot GTI suspension (LEFT) vs Billstein coilovers...

    Engine Oil poured into Coolant on a turbo-charged car (Yes I'm an idiot)

    Thought it shouldn't do much damage but helps having a non amateur's opinion as I'm learning slowly and made my first big mistake. Thanks a bunch!

    Toyota Corolla hybrid 2.0 petrol 180HP

    Hey! Usually the best thing for immediate BHP, is a remap :) Good BHP gains for the money spent, usually around 10-30% increase from factory depending on car. Then after that it's about modding it out to icnrease the capacity for BHP gains after further remaps =)

    Nissan Sentra/Bluebird Sylphy (G10/N16) QG13DE

    Oh wow nice! The B13's look cool don't think I've seen one here in the UK. General rule of thumb, remaps tend to add 10-30% BHP so a simple remap may do it (probably add near around 10% beign naturally aspirated). There's a pretty cool modded Sentra N16 here ;

    Engine Oil poured into Coolant on a turbo-charged car (Yes I'm an idiot)

    Heey! So I own a Peugeot 208 GTI & i've poured engine oil [5w30 off memory] into the coolant, realized my mistake a month or so later, and am getting it bled/washed out as we speak. Am wondering, in the technicalities......... 1) What has this done 2) What will this cause 3) What damage? My...

    Increase grip for faster cornering

    I'm the same as you :) Way more fun going a tad speedy on corners and country roads than fast in a stright line =) And also a Pug, 208 GTI. Best I think is tyres! Getting those Michelin sports or just better grip tyres period, lowering springs or suspension/coilovers (but super expensive, just...
