  1. Ok but just does not look right. Hoping to get a dial in maybe in a pod but was just curious about the wiring in
  2. I fancy installing a voltmeter in my Mk1. I understand running the + cable direct to the battery but can anyone please advise where I link the negative wire to safely. Im also concious I need it to power off with the car too? Thanks for any advice Pete
  3. Just curious, any value in putting Shell V Power in the tank every time or even every so often? Mines a standard (Apart from a RamAir foam cone filter) 1.6 petrol so will I see any real benefits from putting the more expensive stuff in? Pete
  4. Thanks. Also what did you do with your crankcase breather hose? Were you able to keep it as you kept the airbox base?
  5. Can I ask hwo have you installed yours? Did you keep the base of the original air box in place and allow the cone to sit on that, or did you remove the entire airbox altogether? Thanks
  6. How did you find the improvement after fitting the brace?
  7. Thanks but my noise is more like air escaping maybe a leak in the exhaust? Bit confused cos it only seems to happen at low revs
  8. Just a long shot here and apologies for the poor description. Hope you guys can help me with an issue I seem to get a whispy maybe metallic sound when pulling away at low torque. Cant pinpont the issue but sems to be front bottom end and only when accelerating? Car drives fine otherwise. Not sure where to start with this one but any ideas appreciated Pete
  9. Does the noise stop once the clutch has been used a few times?
  10. Any recommend best way to do an ECU reset? Thanks
  11. I have a 1.5 mk1 and it just seems a bit sluggish recently. Want to try an ECU reset to see if i see any noticable difference after and dont think ones been done recently. Is the best way just to remove the + terminal for a few hours? Thanks
  12. Guys bit of an odd one this but can i ask advice on attaching a new larger bore tailpipe i have made myself?.Had a new aftermarket backbox recently and the tailpipe looks awful I plan to cut back the thinner existing one and somehow attach the new one to the backbox. I guess it woukd be best to weld it on but is this something i can do at home with no welding experience? Both are made of mild steel. Thanks as usual
  13. How about de-wipering altogether?
  14. Would stainless steel be best or maybe a plastic covered in some kind of heat deflecting foil?
  15. Looking to fit a Ram Air cone filter at the end of the month. I know a few of you have these or similar fitted but can i ask what you used for the heatshield? Thanks
