Re: VDO Gauges

Yes and no if that makes sense. The aftermarket gauges use their own senders. My speedo (ST700 unit) picks up from one extended lug bolt on drivers side front. Most of the OBC functions die, except clock and o/s temp - which are all I ever use. Was difficult for my auto sparky to maintain the ABS wa...

Really impressed with your engineerings kills.

Regarding the variable stacks and excuse me if you've already covered this - what triggers the adjustment and how responsive will they be?

Re: The Definitive Exhaust Upgrade Pictorial

If you want the cool factor go for the side exit but with twin pipes exiting at 45 degrees - cut parallel with the sills. One of the oz guys did a side exit so have a search. He posted a video of the finished product spitting flames. I wouldn't count on any significant increase in power unless doing...

Re: Going Euro lights up front, looking for advice

I think technically they're semi sealed, as you can replace the bulbs. You can improve them as long as the reflectors and lenses are clean and clear by using decent modern bulbs, and get them aimed properly, but obviously will not be up to modern standards, especially spread. If you do decide to pul...

Re: CTECK battery charger.

Hi Ron I run the car all year round so just plug in between runs. As an aside I connect a much more basic unit to an 800ccA marine battery for 6 months or so every year without use that trickles out a constant 1 amp (no smarts), which I replace every 4-5 years although always in good nick, even thou...

Re: M90 engine overhaul

Hi Janusz I missed your previous post 16 Dec. When I rebuilt my M30B34 I was initially considering custom pistons, but as you have found is not straight forward, so I stuck with Mahle 2nd oversize. However I had trouble locating these and sourced through Carl Bennet at Korman Autoworks https://www.k...

Re: Group C JPS tribute build.

Is an Autosolutions short shift kit with a custom extension sleeve and custom delrin knob. I felt the shift lever as supplied was too short and required too much effort - hence the mods. Being longer also falls better to the hand. On a different note, I've always fancied a set of Simmons wheels. Whi...

Hi Denis I wish you all the best in your project. I built my own JPS tribute - see photos below. I guess what specs you build to is a personal thing and depends on how true to the real deal you want to be and how deep your pockets are.
