  4. Thought I would give a little update from when I last posted. So when I originally took the car off the road it was due to a misfire I couldn't diagnose this ended up being the least of its problems. The car then became a project from that moment onwards, everything got stripped off and put aside apart from the interior. Due to unforeseen circumstances I was then informed I would have to leave the lock up the car was in. Luckily I had use of another unit and i was able to keep the car there. Unfortunately 2 days before my leave day the unit was cleared out by a company and I lost at least two thirds of all fixings and miscellaneous parts I had taken off. The car was then left sitting on axle stands for the next 3 years.. Fast forward to today and the Aerodeck now runs and is nearly ready to see the road again. Brief spec of the car. Engine - B18c4 with a b18c ported head. Block has been decked and honed, standard pistons and rods just refreshed with new rings and all new bearings etc. Cylinder head has been skimmed and completely refreshed including slight porting. ARP head studs, Honda oil pump, Moroso sump, Skunk 2 inlet and 70mm Throttle body, AEM fuel rail and Regulator. Walbro 255 fuel pump. Tegiwa radiator with slimline fan. AEM long arm induction kit Gearbox - Standard S9B gearbox has innovative Gear linkage with short shifter. Uprated detent springs, Competition clutch, RPC flywheel. Suspension / Brakes- Hardrace Front and Rear lower control arms Hardrace inverted track rod ends Hardrace Front and rear camber arms Yellowspeed Rear toe arms Buddyclub P1 extended front ball joints Meister R coilovers with Protective socks. Braided brake lines and Clutch line. EBC brakes Still a lot to do but the goal is to have it on the road by the summer .

  5. All running nicely now. Fired straight up no spluttering or weirdness. Touch wood continues to behave. Get some miles on it then map. Turbosmart BOV and boost pipe amended next week by Dynodaze.

  10. Eek. Cars just eat money constantly, fuel lines too short and crosses the throttle body. Parts to make a new one ordered. Boost pipe needs altering too. Decided best to run a BOV with more boost. Turbosmart one ordered. Think you've got it planned out in your head and always extra costs.

  15. So the start of this year is going to be taken up trying to address all the little, niggly issues I currently have with my old girl. I'm sure I'll find more as I go but my list for now is 1 - Find someway for reattaching all the loose bits of interior trim/headlining. I have already had a go at some with a spray adhesive but it didn't stay stuck! 2 - Find a way of pulling out and repairing the dents in the rear door/arch, or find someone local to do it for me 3 - Replace sticky front calliper with a shiny new one and give the rest of the system a overhaul with new disks/pads & shoes. 4 - Replace exhaust system, Cat and Lamba sensor as she only scraped through her emission test last MOT. I'm hoping to fund this by selling my Factory original CAT that's currently on her, but I've been having problems getting a price for it as it doesn't have any codes on it. 5 - Find out why my drivers window sometimes works fine and sometimes needs pushing to get it to go down. 6 - Look into why my rear bumper is slightly warped on one side and giving me panel gaps that really annoy me. My wife thinks I'm mad and being too fussy but I cant unsee it lol That lot should keep me going for a while so I look forward to keeping y'all upto speed as I crack on with it. Peace ✌️ Joe

  17. What a journey you've been on there! Can't believe what happened with the lock up. Glad you're sorted now though and it's looking like it's going to be a belter - looking forward to seeing how it turns out

  18. I'm not sure, I've looked too. Look the same. Possibly the steering lines won't fit? However I can't find a mg rack either really. There few and far between

  20. If it breaks 200 I will be over the moon. Not really spoke to anyone who has went b18c4 bottom end with b18c head, so not 100% on what sort of figures to expect? Still need to decide on what ECU I want to run as its still the standard Aerodeck ECU. Im sure I have a spare chipped p28 lying about somewhere so will be my best bet when it comes to getting it mapped.

  23. Hi I believe the mb6 is 26mm and the mc2 is 24mm

  24. There are some that look like the oem ones, it's just strange since the diameter is 63 mm and it seems like there aren't any with that diameter. Also the surface isn't flat, is convex so I am not sure if the sticker will be able to stick properly.. I guess I'll have to give it a try

  25. by far the cheapest headgasket to use is the d16z6 headgasket as it's the most common, basically all gaskets for SOHC d series of the 90-01 era are interchangeable.

  26. Lack of grease inside the gear section of the motor is the problem, the nylon gear will be worn & as it's a sealed unit it's not repairable, I've tried . Fit a complete unit with linkage from an MB/C or MG ZS if you can find one . Stewart .

  27. Could be the brushes in the motor itself have worn down, don't think it sounds like the linkages.

  28. Thx mate. That was really helpful. Got the cover off, turns out it was only a connection issue. Got it working in no time. Thanks again
