Re: dpf replaceent

I'm not suggesting you do this, but people have been known to gut their DPF and refit it as a straight through pipe.

I haven’t got a amp anymore so can’t try it out
I use one of those cables to plug my phone into my AV reciever sometimes. Works fine.

Re: G13A Rebuild

I've never paid more than £100 for a G13 or a G16.

*edit* Talk to ScottieJ, Andeyrew or Mike Harris. Between those guys, they usually have any parts you could possibly need.

Re: G13A Rebuild

The 1.6 is a higher compression engine, meaning it's more efficient. Because of this, most people who've done the swap tell me they get the same or better fuel economy from a 1.6.

Re: Just bought an LJ80...

That little beauty must've cost you a pretty penny! LJ's aren't cheap...

It's a damned fine example though, from the pics!
