Dillz has been working behind the scenes for the last month or so compiling this list of FAQs, some from existing and outdated lists, but mostly by trawling the sub-forums and picking out the most popular and useful threads.

The amount of work involved seems rather insignificant but is one hell of an effort. Well done Dillon. :blink:

Ideally this will be continually updated as models change and different ideas and concepts come about, so if you see something that's missing from the above post that you feel may be useful then add it to this thread and we'll keep the first post updated.

Is there a how to change oil thread?, I thought I saw one somewhere but cannot find it maybe its on another site. Yes tried the search function but all I get is like every other post that has oil written in it.

Hi mate,

Unfortunately last year when the forum was upgraded we lost some old threads in the changeover, I guess that must of been one of them.

I'll remove it from the list.

Hey all, just bought a 2003 ba XR6T and am very happy with it. I'm keen to put in a pwr trans cooler as I want to avoid any potential problems. Most of the forums I've looked at have had the pictures removed as they are quite old. I want to make sure I do this right and so would really appreciate any advice regarding installation. Cheers in advance.
