Impressive

Yeah, take actuator off and it slots through. The main PIA was getting the oil line back on the block as it was dark and worked by lead lights. Daylight would have been nice....

Doesn't fit past driveshaft does it.
July 27, 2015, 07:11:34 PM
Lol, nice work robbo, thats a solid effort for 1 day
July 27, 2015, 06:51:59 PM
Turbo is in, still putting the car back together though. If you do this yourself, take the driveshaft out. I went shortcut and now regret it. Biatch of a job with shaft still in Much swearing was done over the oil line, to my shame.....

Ah okay, well yeah if its only purpose is to save the factory some money it can go.

The one think about is doing nothing. If you remove light unit you will see. Could be universal tank end thats why that unused tab.
July 27, 2015, 11:19:11 AM
But doesn't the tab hold the radiator in place?? Otherwise what does it do?
July 27, 2015, 10:57:51 AM
Cut off that radiator tab completly. Use hacksaw blade. Hold it by hand.

Robbo: "Instant limp". That's what she said :D

Yeah prefer the silicone. A little bit of give is probably good. With the size of my IC no rub is going to be difficult. But I'm gonna sand down the offending plastic bits a tad and sleeve the rubbing bit with another silicone hose. Should do the trick.

Anyone have a spare fog light chrome ring they will ship to Canberra?
July 26, 2015, 08:15:18 PM
When I installed my Plazmaman intercooler I had to cut off au unused radiator bracket and tape some plastic rub strips over a couple of points on the chassis where the new bigger hose rubbed.
July 26, 2015, 08:14:20 PM
No, silicone hose is best. No extra joints and Silicone really grips. Just have to make sure it doesn't rub.

Time for a pro alloy cold side pipe then. Wink
July 26, 2015, 08:11:06 PM
Instant limp, lol.
July 26, 2015, 05:55:55 PM
Oh my. Blew a boost pipe today on the motorway. The IC to TB cold pipe which has been rubbing on the radiator bracket for close to a year now has finally cut all the way through and given way. Sigh.
July 25, 2015, 06:31:33 PM
Whole driveshafts that is.
July 25, 2015, 06:31:01 PM
Not sure. I purchased low mileage ones from Formaz (wrecker) and fitted myself. Cost less than $200 Smiley

Does $810 for new cv joints fitted,sound about right.

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley
