Nocturne, nip the top bolts up nice and tight and they should be fine.Have had no knocking sounds after doing that.

Took a guy in a souped up Colt Ralliart for a good hoon on a secluded road today. Holy moly those things are pocket rockets!!

If its the bc coilovers its a common problem. Have a  look on stoc. Heaps of info on it yet I don't think there is a solution. One of the reasons I went kw.
October 31, 2014, 01:44:03 PM
Am i better off making the suspension place that installed the coilovers do that?

It wasn't there at first, then was only at left, went away, now both sides. ugh.

Check the rear shock mounts up top. Access two bolts from under the rear gaurds. Wheel off job.

Bah. Have a knock at the bavk over every single little bump...got under and wasn't able to budge with the rear sway bar, thats not promising Sad

Coolant temp sensor is in thermostat housing . Oil per sure sensor is on the front of the block just above crank height and boost is calculated by the ECU from the pressure reading above the reference reading all within the MAP sensor, so yes, all real readings.
October 30, 2014, 07:10:40 PM
Now I'm curious... Are the coolant temp, oil pressure and boost gauges also 'calculated'? Or are they real measurements?
October 30, 2014, 06:46:33 PM
:D Ok good just checking.
October 30, 2014, 06:12:50 PM
I can confirm it still works Smiley
October 30, 2014, 05:47:22 PM
Yes it will still work as you won't be touching it or modifying it at all. It will work along side another one if you choose to install one..
October 30, 2014, 05:13:07 PM
If an external air-air oil cooler is added does the factory gauge still work? Its obviously not a precision gauge but as long as it shows the approximate magnitude.
October 30, 2014, 02:32:11 PM
You have to use a seperate gauge to keep it seperate from the original ones that are controlled by the body control/ ecu
October 30, 2014, 10:42:34 AM
So stock gauge can show correct reading if hooked up to proper temp sensor? Or we have to use separate gauge like u did Wilsh?
October 30, 2014, 09:49:00 AM
You can get in line an fittings with 1/8 not threads in the side of them to accomodate an oil temp sensor. I know aero flow do them.
October 30, 2014, 06:54:28 AM
For those of you with external oil coolers, is it possible to use a proper oil temp sensor with the factory gauge?

It has improved lately on facebook pete. That guy last night was the exception to the rule. Complete knob

The only thing pete doesn't like about the barina is no shoe draw that he would have got if he kept with ford... Tongue

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

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi
