Thought the engine bay needed a de-clutter,so had cpp custom make all my pipes from intercooler up....less joins,less chance of leaks....race battery kit...evo 9 hks J pipe,murray clamps all round...


Before...

Had a mint fuel tank fitted too,and new walbro pump.

On the next trackday at blyton,noticed it puffed a tiny bit of smoke on cold start up.....after much fiddling,found the cause....

Valve stem seals or maybe guides,dont know till head is removed.

Supertech ones are fitted a few years ago,but heard some stories of them going hard.:(

So head off later on this year,refurbed,new valve stems and/or guides,new cossie head gasket...etc.etc.:wallbang:

Think i might get genuine seals this time.

Bad news on the valve stem seals but better to find sooner than later.

Dinitrol 4941 underbody is it any good?
 
I've always used waxoyl in the past to protect the underbody chassis area. But recently when planning to reprotect the chassis area on my lancer I came across a brand called Dinitrol. It seems that the equivalent to Waxoyl is 4941. Has anyone used this before? https://www.tiltrak.com/product/dini...dy-protection/

I am interested in how long it lasts? And also does the finish look good? It mentions a hard black waxy coating but no pic examples are shown.
