I've done my fair share Ant, if you warm it first with a hair dryer it comes off fairly quickly, then warm soapy water and a tungsten blade to get the glue off

Upon removal of my front bumper, not only did I find my oil cooler has a little dent in it (god knows how it happened), but I am also missing a duct I believe.

Is there supposed to be a duct in front and rear of that oil cooler or?

Took the Evo out on mountain roads, pleasure to drive.



Although I still have to change few things:

- steering rod and rod ends
- front top mounts
- front and rear wheel bearings
- new tyres and geometry

Then it should be perfect. But I still cannot remove the driveshaft from the hub to change the rear left bearing, I will have to take the whole assembly off and use a hydraulic press. PITA

So I've changed the steering tie rod and rod ends, the play in the steering has been reduced, although what's left of it might be normal, or maybe I'm expecting too much (never driven other TMEs before). The nasty knock on full lock has been reduced as well. Got the parts from viamoto, they are not exactly like oem as you would expect, the biggest difference is that you need a 30mm crow spanner, rather than a 32mm for the oem rod.

My PAS pump is making noises as well, so will have to change it! Are they the same on Evo 6s and TMEs?

I need to check if the diff bolts are broken or not, because I still hear a knock on full lock under my feet (LHD car). Heard the TME doesn't suffer from this failure since the design is different, but I guess I have to open the case anyway.

Cleaned the car, and especially the wheels. Went for a drive, still few knocks here and there, but I love the acceleration and handling. A rocket!

Thanks guys! What spacers can I use to just make the wheel pop out without rubbing the arches? Just want them to fill the arches more. They are std TME wheels and the car has std suspension.

be interested to see what the difference is, if you try spacers, I'm considering going back to standard wheels very soon, please try to get another shot from the same angle as above so we can see the difference.

Yea, that is if I can get an answer on what is the maximum spacer width I can use without rubbing the arches
