HMC Posted November 5, 2017 Author Share Posted November 5, 2017 ^ive ordered one of the coolant thermostats for the diesel as its definitely running cooler than it should. If that doesn't sort it I'll have to move on to the oil thermostat. I think it's th first car I've had with 2 of the buggers! Meanwhile the accident damage messed up more of the intake system on the 1.8lx than I'd realised and after moving it about with the wing swap various bits of brittle plastic are crumbling and breaking up even more (a fair bit of trunking is behind the NSF wing that got mangled up) I'll try and tape it up or cable tie it together like a right bodge artist. Without the broken resonator there's a lot more intake roar; which would be nice if it wasn't so boomy. I might experiment with a cone filter. Overnight it rained here so I woke to find all my muddy fingerprints had washed off. I removed some of the oily fingerprints too and it turns out the wing off a scrapper has probably the best paint on the car! oldcars 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
