Re: What is this?

I completely agree Scott, I don't want a loud exhaust at all, I have a powerflow back box situated in front of the rear wheel with the super long tail pipe welded on from the standard exhaust, overall volume has not increased, not noticeably so anyway, the exhaust note sounds much nicer however, wit...

Re: What is this?

I need to do some adjustments and fit a flexi, so thought I might take it out at the same time if it's a restrictive silencer?

Also I want some pops and bangs :lol:

Re: What is this?

I don't know, it could be!

Anyway, it'll be coming off if that's the case.

Should I replace with a cherry bomb centre section or straight pipe?

And has anyone had problems with emissions on the sj at mot time? Not sure if they are more lenient with older cars?

Thanks.

What is this?

The little blue box attached to the end of the manifold, I originally thought it was an old cherry bomb but after seeing them on a few sj's, now I'm not sure if they are a centre section that came as standard?

Thanks.

Re: 1.6 8v timing

No I didn't, the vacuum advance wasn't working on the 1.3 so I never bothered, not even sure it's plumbed up right on the su hif44.

Anyway, I forgot to block the vacuum advance :S

1.6 8v timing

I've got my 1.6 8v in my sj, I've been driving it around for a couple of days now, I have setup the timing by ear and she's running okay, but I've just tried setting the timing with a timing light and at 8° she's almost ready to cut out (assuming the 1.6 8v is 8°??) Where I have her set by ear, the ...

Re: Su Carb breather

Mine is blocked off, there is still a breather on the modded manifold that goes to the breather on the rocker cover.

Re: oil confusion

Oil is so confusing, I replaced the oil in the diffs, transfer case & gearbox with triple QX 75w90, have just checked and it's GL-5.

Should I replace the oil with GL-4 ASAP?

Re: Exhaust wont fit 1.6!! :(

Well I tried the other exhaust and that also didn't fit, same thing hitting the back of the engine. So I bashed my exhaust in slightly and also usee two manifold gaskets to bring it out little bit further. I got her running and took her for a test drive and made the fatal mistake of not tightening u...
