What Did You Do To Your Car Today?


Recommended Posts

Removed the cigarette lighter and replaced it with a USB quick charge port. Has a type C port on it! So futuristic and sh*t.

Also has a voltmeter integrated. Not sure I like that part but overall fit and finish is amazing.

Photo doesn't do it justice, looks like its not in straight but trust me I made sure it was square 🤣🤣

 

With the cover closed it looks almost factory, doesn't stick out like dogs balls.

 

(I need a new shifter boot)

(Tues) Carried on with mocking up all the bits to support the new turbo.  Started on the top side of the dump. Was all going well till I used my thumb for the earth lead for my tig so called time

Did some yesterday and some this arvo. Pulled out the airbox, intake manifold, surge tank and a few more things. Put better stuff in.

What did somebody else do to your car today?

Currently doing a service on old faithful. Went to get the oil, filter, and diff oil the other day. They didn't have a Ryco z516 filter in stock but they had a Cooper brand version. Anyone heard of them? It was cheaper than the Ryco one who I've always used. Just don't wanna put some pos filter onto the car 🤣

Cooper have been around for years, will be fine. I have used Purolator, K&N (black can n white can) Bosch, Aeroflow, Motorcraft FL820S, Luber-Finer (e-core) and some others. I like the K&N Silver (black can) $12 delivered through sparesbox ebay shop. I always open them up as well after OCI and have a look. I'm an oil and oil filter nerd.

The AFL101 was only developed for the barra because they were so hard on the Anti Drain Back Valves, they went to the silicon kind. All the bypass psi and flow rates are essentially the same through that group of filters. I personally just like the higher flow filter media of the K&N but it has the same bypass psi.

Broke the door handle cable in my brothers FG, in the process of replacing it.... Lesson learnt to be gentle with these cables cause they're a massive PITA to replace. Especially with all this deadener in the way 😂

Going off what I mentioned in the off topic thread, I'm in the process of replacing the pre-cat O2 sensor, and I've noticed quite a bit of oil build up around the back of the motor and on the sensor plug.

Check this album for pics of this, some of them are below.

 

Noticed that some oil has built up around the plug, nothing inside yet but still odd.

You can see the plug on the left has oil around it. 

 

Here's where the leak appears to be coming from

This a common place for barra's to be leaking from?

Car has done about 2,000km since the last oil change and the level has not changed a bit. Still a bit concerned over this though.

 

Here's what the O2 sensor looks like too, fore reference, I'm changing the sensor due to getting the code P0311 and the car idling like its on ghost cams when I started it recently.

After moving houses and not touching the car for awhile. I finally got around to putting on some DBA4000 slotted rotors and bendix ultimate pads along with a set of re003 tyres. 

 

Tyres are a huge improvement over the cheapies the previous owner put on and it's nice to hit the brakes and not feel the entire car wobble. 

 

Also replaced a front caliper as it was sticking with just a repco one for now until I have more funds to spend

checked the injectors as I had left e85 in the system while it sat for +5 months and I was curious.

luckily was just the pre injector filters, replaced them and was fine.

can ran loads better but would ocasionally still misfire. it pushed alot of coolant so I guess this weekend is compression check. when I removed the sparks two had verry white tips so it would have been a bit lean last event while running the clogged injectors.

 

fun times ahead.
