Tyres sound like they've been stretched on the rim, and are the cheap model.
Achilles make some good tyres. The ATR sports are good for average...
Could the plugs be an issue?
If you're at the point of just considering what to buy, your best bet is the buy what you want, strangely enough!
If you like the S-packs...
Disconnect your battery for 30mins, that might reset something.
Also, check your ego.
I'll give you some options, although i don't know if they will all come in the size you need.
Federal 595 EVO's - Budget tyre, average grip but...
Agreed, 100% marketing. You couldn't feel the difference on the road, 10kw is so minimal in that engine.
Truth of the matter is, that you're not person X's accountant :D
You and I have both said it's not a very good purchase. And if said advice isn't...
The thing is, you'll offer a price. Then they'll counter it, or say they're not negotiable. You wont lose anything for asking, and they wont throw...
Also, check to see the filler cap is done up snug, and in good condition.
Only real option might be to call a locksmith.
I lost my keys for my 89' Mazda once, cost be $320 on a sunday to call one out and cut a new one...
I know the feels :D
If you can get the boot open, hire a small child and get them to squeeze in via there
Do you plan on tracking the car? No real point playing with damping settings unless you are. Some coilovers can go higher, some sit slightly...
I looked loooong and hard at this when i had my Alloytec. I found several issues, first being that any real power gain was around 5500rpm, and...
You'll find its just a bit of the centre console. Which is probably only sold as a whole unit :/
Time to hit up the wreckers bro!
Missus leave her handbag in the car?
From my understanding, higher octanes also allow more scope for timing to be added. Making more power in most cases.
Made in China doesn't necessarily mean bad these days, all depends on what budget they're made to...
Stick with a 2.5", WITH resonators/mufflers.
It's not about being obnoxious because everyone thinks you are (Which you are if you give in)....
I had RE002's before the Federal 595 Evo's i have now. Same dry traction and handling, 595's are slightly worse in the wet and alittle more noisy....
I wanna know :)
I've used a TOG intercooler before, it did its job adequately :)
But, you don't want to be replacing engines at all. Prevention is better then a cure.
And a stock LS1 in a vehicle with similar brakes and...
It's not for me, the information is for the OP. But yes, that is certainly a step in the right direction!
Once again, I don't know.
Basically, I'm trying to gather constructive information from you. It's becoming increasingly hard.
I don't know. I went off your comments.
Which is why I'm awaiting your answer on a turbocharged V6's longevity. :)
This is very true!! :)
I'm just rather curious how often a "regular basis" is in your terms. As it's a direct relation to how much money would be...
No i have never owned a Turbocharged Ecotec, have you?
I made my assumption off your own comment, that it would need replacing on a regular...
The common perception of "budget" is cheap.
It's not really cheap or smart to replace an engine on a regular basis. And as the OP hasn't...
Both comments are very true. The fact is, that LS1's are fairly cheap to buy, they have an extensive INTERNATIONAL aftermarket scene and by design...
How about we allow the gentleman to decide what HE actually wants, before we leave a bad taste in his mouth. :)
Whats the VIN number?
It's hard to tell without seeing it in person. But to me it does sound like a timing issue.
To be honest i didn't know they did servicing, just...
Doubt you'll get a reply mate, that was alittle over 4 years ago.
Had a mate back in Townsville, who had one. Was a 4inch pipe by memory
Agreed. Don't skimp on the the tuning side. Its the most important part of vehicles these days.
