    Is stroker worth it?

    I'm currently in the process of gathering parts for a hybrid build. Im looking for a nice strong reliable motor, hopefully around the 350bhp mark. At this level, is the expense of a stroker worthwhile, or would I be better spending the money on some head work?

    Anyone good with logs?

    I'm having some problems with the car at high revs - 4500 and above. I did a few logs and have screenshots below. I never lifted my foot during the logs, yet it seems the throttle angle changes. It sounds and feels very much like a misfire, but I have new coilpacks, and plugs, so not sure what...

    Bumper question?

    My car currently has the votex kit (front, rear and sideskirts), and I'd like to change it to the GMBH (S-line) bumpers and skirts. It seems like the votex stuff is fitted over the original parts (plastic sport bumpers), so what exactly would I need in order for the change? And is there much...

    Washer bottle sensor

    Strange question - My windscreen washer bottle appears to have a sensor fitted (top of the bottle, sensor with convoluted tubing running from it) But when my bottle runs empty, I get no warning. I'm about to do the full DIS upgrade, and I was waiting to see if my sensor worked. Is there any...

    Bulb out warning

    My car has the partial DIS. Should this give me bulb out warnings? I currently have 1 sidelight and 1 numberplate light out, and nothing on the dash? If I change my stalk, and code in full DIS, does this enable bulb out warnings, or is it a completely seperate system and I don;t have it? Its...
