  • Winter Projects?

    I was just wondering, now that the weather has turned cooler and the show season is coming to a close, if there are any members with big (or small?) projects on the go over the winter?

    I'm waiting on the money coming through from selling my house, then I need to rebuild the engine on the Vectra, new water pump, cambelt tensioners, new CV joint to sort the ABS fault, and then it should hopefully see me through the winter. Once the Vectra is running, my Astra will go SORN for the winter so I can change the smokey old turbo (hopefully for something big with a bit more go in it ), get it fully decatted and tweak the mapping to get the most out of it, with a bit of luck I might get it to run reliably nearer the 350bhp mark, without the turbo being at its limit and under so much stress.


    Keif has the LC back on the road and Brendan is still keeping everyone up to date with the Manta project, but is anyone else taking on jobs that they've postponed over the summer months?

    I think I'm going to be breaking my Calibra. Hopefully sooner rather than later, as I don't have the space and no garage.

                          I have the GTE heart to rebuild now I have the Z20LET oil pump and modded pickup sorted. Once the GTE is back together I'll be dragging Amanda's Astra mk3 back home from storage so I can ge the 3.0 V6 + F28 with ATB fitted, should be fun as I have a few other mods planned for the car so keep your eyes on the build diary once I get started. Oh yeah, I also have the lightened flywheel and new clutch slave and m/c to go on my Veccy ST200. That little lot should keep me busy over Winter

                            You need to pull your finger out with them brakes, it's a 5 minute job

                            Why are you messing with Landrovers again? Damn horrible agricultural machinery

                              I may get the hellfrauds paint pen out and fill a few stone chips

                              Am hoping to get the discoloured plastic bits sprayed to match the rest of the car and possibly replace the 2.2 airbox with one from a 1.9 cdti........would love to get a polished pipe or two with some silicon hoses while I'm at it. May have to sell a kidney first though
