Re: turbo reroute

If you're really concerned about your turbo (as you should be, IMO) and you have the time and money to spare fit a boost gauge. Bailes has a thread about this somewhere and it will let you see exactly what your turbo output is doing :)

Re: Cold Start Videos

The Poxhall struggled this morning. Went out about 10 to pick up the wife, MFD reckoned 0.5c outside... it really spluttered begrudgingly in to life then made funny noise all the way down to the bus station.

Re: Which hire car?

Hey d00ds, back for the weekend - oh, and what's this? A letter? From the nice people at the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary? Well, always happy to assist officers of her majesty's law enforcement, and... oh. 73, you say? In a 60, you say? Photographic evidence, you say? What a start to my weekend off...

Which hire car?

[EDIT] Nuts to it, I've gone for the Megane. 1.4 16v DOHC turbo with 6-speed Manuel. 130 brake ^_^

I'm off cruising the world again folks, take care and if the kraken and/or scurvy don't get me I'll see y'all when I get back!

Re: my HID experience

Thanks for the info, t'was always something I wanted to do the 406 but never got around to. But little nuggets of information like this are certainly handy to folks who might be considering such a project :)

Re: Drew towards an alfa

Clarkson reckons you're not a proper motorist until you've owned an Alfa :)

Though of course in the spirit of one-upmanship I must insist on us all buying Lancias ^_^
