Re: 1985 Series 3 restomod with s5 13BT on LPG, R&P steering

Sweet, any reasoning behind the internal gate or just because? Great question. I've been wanting to do this turbo conversion for 12 years, so let's just say I've had a lot of time to think about it and changed my mind a number of times. There's lots of pros vs cons for both style of wastegate. For ...

Re: KIMI 2 - 1983 Series 2

You can try PTFE tape. Also clean up the mounting face on the fitting boss and under the banjo bolt and sand down smoothly with 400+ grit if there are any pitts or nicks. Then replace the washers with new copper washers if you haven't already. The oil cooler lines are under very high pressure, so le...

Re: 1985 Series 3 restomod with s5 13BT on LPG, R&P steering

Re: 84GSLSE 13BREW Swap build

If they crack again, I strongly recommend looking into an FC oil cooler. These having the fitting top and side to prevent this from occurring. its 4 gauge.. more than enou...

Re: 1985 Series 3 restomod with s5 13BT on LPG, R&P steering

Thanks! The I/C is 450x300mm core, which by all accounts should fit fairly well in front of the factory radiator and in between the radiator support panels - particularly if you don't have aircon (which most UK cars don't!). It is Aeroflow brand, which is an Australian rebadger of Chinese manufactur...
