I understand now. bad cookies grooming.

It wasn't my cookies buddies. I had a chain fight with a certain person when I outed him. I wondered why my insurance company was being WEIRD also. - Anyhoo I caught the bastard, told him what I thought - he come round my house with a very very heavy chain. He lost the chain. Come at me bro.

Re: Baffled by 360 exhaust centre section, very.

Or add a decat pipe to the "cat" pipe you have. its wider bore so more power. Fitting an exhaust to any car is a waste of power and economy anyway. I was amazed at how far away pedestrians want to be from a car with just a downpipe compared to one with a set of silencers. Its a road risk IMO to be q...

Re: any cheap, complete 300/swap mk1 auto clio *GONE*

Piston ring(s) on no3 is broken. Can you get a piston out the bottom of a renault k7j energy engine by knocking out the gudgeon pin without taking off the crank to change the rings? Or by taking the conrod off at the big end and getting it through the gap? I dont mind needing 3 pairs of hands all un...

Re: any cheap, complete 300/swap mk1 auto clio

Haha. I've had a right ole time with this engine now. Tensioning the timing belt to the renault figures, instead of just nice and snug.. you know.. being perfectionist about it - its finished off the water pump. Its coming out faster than can be put in. So I'm taking the pump, belt and idler off the...
