Re: Nimminz' 340 DL

currently fitting LSD, got some clio coupe steels for it (williams spares). Engines no-where near, need to sort clutch as the flywheels soooo much taller on the b14. Gonna need to space the arm/ release bearing an inch forwards. I'm mocking things up with vario parts, the splines on the clutch shat ...

Re: 360 LSD.

Hi, i bought Miniswifts last diff, after testing the first ever. Ive had a similar problem with the spacer / worm gear retainer ring being too big for the crown wheel.

b14 engine mounting bracket

Hi all, need the part that goes between the front rubber engine mounts and the block its self. They're like two parts linked with a thin bar.

Re: speciale 25 glt+T

I didn't use it in extreme temperatures, range would have been 0 - 28 deg C ambient temp
At 3psi my set up worked using 95 RON
At 11psi my set up required 97 RON minimum

Re: speciale 25 glt+T

I ran my 360 10:1 CR at 11psi on LH2.4 and matching EZK. It had no problems at all. The retarding of ignition timing by the knock sensor due to pre ignition, would have no effect on said pre ignition. I used an A cam which may have had a difference in stopping pre ignition. 95 octane fuel would caus...

Re: I'm back!!

Hi, cheers I've had a look at the photos on your blog and it all looks familiar to my corsa epas system. Will give him a shout when i get round to starting that bit and see what light he can shed. Will watch for the horn ring placement.

I'm back!!

Hi, I used to have a 360 GLT which I turbo'd, tested the first LSD in and then sold a few years ago, and regretted big time. I got a 740 saloon and stuck a turbo lump in that and have been dailying it since then. Had a brief stint in a 04 V40 TDI and learned a load of remapping. I recently swapped i...

Re: 360 LSD.

Hello, I tested the first of these LSD's for Miniswift. It was in my 360 which was a PAS car. I didn't feel any real difference in the steering being heavier because of the rear wheels being more constrained in relation to each other. In fact i can't remember any real downsides at all, It made drivi...
