  1. On the left is the original one that I took out and on the right is the newer one that I ordered. The newer one doesn’t have the sleeve and the plug in bit is ever so slightly different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I ordered the part “camshaft sensor” over the phone and arrived yesterday. On further inspection the box says “crankshaft sensor” I know crank sensor and the cam sensor look very similar but are they the same part of do they just look similar and do very different jobs? I just don’t want to put the wrong part in?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Great, thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Ok I thought so but just wanted to confirm? It’s definitely not the crankshaft sensor? That would be lower in the engine bay right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hi just wondering if someone can confirm what part this is? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have an 04 blob eye and the door speakers are terrible! I’m not after changing the look but was just wondering what would be a straight swap speaker? Not after anything “amazing” just would be nice if it could sound like a modern day car speaker system Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Kev did mention that it could of been run on normal unleaded fuel before I had it. I also use 99. It’s only had 1 previous owner so she might have put bad fuel in all of its life [emoji2369] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. It’s completely standard bar a cosworth panel filter in the original filter box. Not been mapped before as far as I’m aware Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. How come you think it needs to be mapped after the build?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Vehicle came in for a service, upon starting the vehicle we found it to be low on compression on a cylinder, a cylinder leakage test was carried out and we found number one cylinder to have 95% leakage, this required engine removal and strip down. On strip down we found an exhaust valve on number one cylinder to have melted on one edge, all the valves were removed for inspection and found the seats and valve face to be badly worn with the exhaust valves fairing the worst, the exhaust valves will all need replacing but the intake valves can be refurbished, the valve guides were measured with the exhaust being worn out of specification, the intake guides are on the upper limit of specification but will put the down for replacement as the valves are on the lower limit. On strip down of the short motor we found big end bearing on number one cylinder to have worn through to the copper, this has caused some light scoring to the crankshaft, the main bearings also show signs of wear with number four main bearing showing scoring to the shell and crankshaft surface, this is to be expected with this mileage and age. The cylinder bores were measured and found to be about 0.001 of an inch out of round at the top of the cylinder, the bores are still serviceable and will require a cylinder hone and some new piston rings. Some of the cylinder head bolts were badly corroded and will need replacing, I would recommend upgrading to ARP head studs as the price difference isn’t that much more. The clutch is worn down to the rivets and the flywheel has hot spot damage where the clutch has been slipping, they will both need replacing. Basically the engine is just worn out and needs a full refurb. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Well it was a bit of a shock but they did the tests and i saw the results of the compression test and they were in the red :/. It struggled through emissions and that’s all I know [emoji2369]. Are you suggesting the garage may have it wrong or? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I did come on but went off within 10 mins after and never came back on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
