Hi -my ECU may be faulty as I am at loss with an unknown limp mode. Any chance I could borrow yours?

Re: Introduction aaaand...limp mode

I occasionally get a stutter at 5500rpm and the car won't rev past this point. Every time I know what it is. An air pocket can develop where the HT leads connect to the coil pack. The instructions with the HT leads even describes seating them carefully by lifting the rubber boot at one side as they ...

Re: My Lotus cars

Wow super nice choice of cars, Stratos, Exige, Elan, Elise and you ended up with S1's, that is interesting. I guess different cars filling different roles. As much as I would like to ask about all of them how was the Stratos?! Would that have been the Hawk replica kit?

Re: Ramblings of a solar yellow s240

That looks absolutely awesome. 300bhp is a lot, was that a VVT engine transplant supercharged?

I just watched a throttle bodied MX5 (VVT engine) and a Yaris GR on a track day. Just shows how capable those little MX5's are.

Re: Ramblings of a solar yellow s240

Yeah nice story on you car ownership journey and landing with this beauty. I'm interested in your MX5 ownership and particularly the blower conversions (maybe that's a discussion for another forum ;) I picked up a really clean VR Limited Eunos in the middle of the 'rona' episode. Great fun little ca...

Re: VHPD timing with Piper verniers

No dyno runs before or after, I just took the opportunity to have them adjusted to factory settings whilst the belt was off; I’ve read that the can sometimes be out from what they should be. It also spreads the cost a little, should I decided to get an Emerald in the future….still thinking about th...

Re: VHPD timing with Piper verniers

[quote Just, have a bash - what's the worst that can hapen? :lol: I had some vernier pulleys fitted and timed at Craig Moncrieff thsi year, when the water pump and timing belt were being changed.

Re: VHPD timing with Piper verniers

Hi Evoman, to be honest for a novice it is not the easiest task, beside the fact that you should use some expensive hardware like the Mitutoyo magnetic micrometer dial gauges that we used. I want to thank on this behalf a very good friend owner of HRT Racing in Soldiate Olona (Italy). He lent me th...

Re: VHPD timing with Piper verniers

Awesome work @ortope :clap: That must be very satisfying to tune the little VHPD as it should be. I wonder how viable is this for a novice to carry out? I would love to check my valve timing to make sure it is spot on. Perhaps a tutorial is possible? ;)
