    Silver Project Tie Bars?

    i dont think they are rusted solid yet. but i live close to the sea which is rusting everything else. the car is 2001 and done 210k miles, so wanted to freshen up all the suspension and bushes.

    Fluoro Lining hoses

    Ok thanks all. Ye they are genuine sold by forge themselves. And yes was a manufacturing mistake that they missed out on the lining. So they are selling them off cheap to get rid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fluoro Lining hoses

    i was thinking what about the intercooler hoses, there probably not fluoro lined. And any of the after market breathers. not sure if it worth a punt, can buy 3 of them for the price of one fluoro lined.

    Fluoro Lining hoses

    ye its genuine forge sold by them however the manufacturer didn't add the fluoro lining. so everything else is the same as the "normal" forge one but for a significant saving. wondering if its worth buy a second hand genuine one for £25-£30 or get the forge one without the lining delivered for...

    3" tip and billet adapter

    ye sorry didnt make this bit clear. the current billet adapter is not genuine, it only has a very small area where the TIP can slid onto and i think this is why it keeps popping off. The genuine billet adapter has over twice the purchase area for the TIP and i'm hoping this will stop the hose...

    Fluoro Lining hoses

    I can get hold of a forge turbo to hard pipe hose for a decent discount but it doesnt have the fluoro lining. Is it worth getting or does it require the fluoro lining?

    Badger5 tip

    if its a non genuine TIP then the billet adapter is much smaller and harder to get a good purchase on. I bought what i thought was a badger TIP but once i compared to the real deal its completely different, badger one is easier to fit, has much better purchase on the billet end and it higher...

    What have you done today?

    i will be using compressed air at 1 psi. if i cant get my compresser to go that low then i will use one of those 12v pumps used to inflate the blow up beds. i will remove the air filter and put a latex glove over it. that way if the pressure is too much the glove will blow off the end before any...

    Power steering help

    Check the power steering cooling pipes which run at the front of the car underneath, prone to splitting and leaking. That was the cause of my issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
