It's not that old. But I dont know what kind, so I'll change it for a 5w-40 with good quality that's been recommended in the "oil-thread" here just to be sure.

I find it a bit strange though, as there are absolutely no ticking noise at cold start.

Hi guys,

I'm looking for some more turbonoises!

Currently running this setup:
- HKS Hi-Power 3" without cat.
- Mongoose downpipe 3"
- HKS M40G spark plugs
- HKS Super Hybrid airfilter (panel, original box)
- Walbro 255l/h
- Turbosmart recirc. BOV
- EcuTek tune

Running at approximately 350 bhp / 480-500 nm.

And now I'm close to buying a HKS Racing Suction R (yellow).
But as usual there is pro's and con's.

Why should I buy it, and why not?

Is there a better intake option?

I did find the "what induction kit?"-thread from 2003, and it seems that the K&N from Ross Sport is the way to go.

No, not yet, but Iíve ordered lifters (-3mm) from RS. Iíll swap them while changing timing belt, waterpump, etc.

The car is hibernating, so I got some time for TLC.

On it's way.
  • Ross Sport Gates 5pc Timing Belt Kit
  • Water Pump
  • Hydraulic Tensioner Timing Belt
  • Ross Sport 3mm Hydraulic Lifter Set
  • Ross Sport K&N Filter & MAF Adapter
  • Lamp assy turn signal front Evo 5-6 RH AMBER
  • Lamp assy turn signal front Evo 5-6 LH AMBER

I can really recommend Gavin @ Ross Sport!
All my part will be bought from them, because their service is fantastic.

Also because I've ordered their induction kit, I've ordered the battery relocation kit from Neverneverman.

I can't wait for the roads to clear up again after this winter.

I've been doing something this winter, but I wasn't bestfriends with Photobucket. Photobucket won though.

Got some new mats from MLR. They look really good, and feels equally as good! Recommended without doubt.




Did receive some bits from RossSport (still missing some..). Tidied up the engine bay a little, going to clean it a bit more before the snow has gone.




Went from clear indicators to amber ones.






Did order some new wheels in 17x9 ET25 that might be fun to fit.








Other than that we're collecting dust, having some deep conversations, and waiting for the summer.








Will be changing to 3mm shorter lifters. And while at it the timing belt, balance belt, tensioners and water pump will be changed as well.
It should be a good summer.

What do you guys think about tire size?
235/40R17?

Ended up with 235/45R17 Yokohama Advan from RossSport.







Don't know how they sit on the car yet.

With the summer closing in here in Norway as well, I'm about to finish of the visuals for this season. Had a proper clean up and adjustment of the coilovers. The nearest one is done.







Meanwhile I got the tirestickers from US. Had to get a proper mask with good filtration and some patience for this one. Acetone and some strong adhesive at work! Had some trouble with the curving on the tire, but with some pressure it came out pretty good.








After all of this I definitely had to get the camber to the negative side as the tires would rub - no doubt. With some camber plates it was an easy job, but not accurate. Will do a alignment in a workshop as soon as possible. Need to tuck this one in under the arches.




When that's in order I had to do a test run to see if she rubs.
I had no problems whatsoever with speed bumps, cracks in the road, and so on, so I'm very pleased with this. It does rub slightly on left turns, but only on the drivers side (LHD this one).






It came down another 10mm after the test drive too. Now it sits really nice! I'll give her a good wash, then enjoy some sunny days. I'll try to get some pictures as well.

And she's a REAL head turner now. Not only by looks, but the blocked recirculation valve and RossSport 3" intake with KN filter is loud. Really loud. Boosting 1.4 BAR. Sssssstuu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-uuu.

Enjoy the spring guys!

car look amazing👍 Itís a credit to you. You might wanna rethink the suspension height at the front though as you have probably has messed up the roll centre going that low. Have a little read of anthonyís thread on roll centres👍

I need some advice!

My left front wheel (my drivers side) is 10 mm further back, than the left.
1. It looks stupid.
2. It rubs when turning.
3. It was like this before coilovers as well.

I've had the car up in the air for 10 minutes, and it looked good - no damages or dents whatsoever. So it looks fine, and the bushings are tight.

Help?
