    D16 swap

    I popped in today for a small chat and they booked me in for tuesday to look at the handbrake issue ive got plus i requested an inspection on any potential rust underneath. They took a deposit off me, first time ive come across that lol not saying its wrong i just didnt expect that. I guess its to deter people from booking in then not turning up is that right? Anyway the chat about the D16 swap confused me even more, rich certainly knows what he's talking about....but where LF honda guy quoted me 1500 for a D16 turbo conversion, dynodaze reckon the same price for a standard D16 in and out swap... Think i need more time to decide on this... Oh and yeh i did tell them they were recomended to me on this forum...

    D16 swap

    Can anyone tell me where i can go for a simple d16 swap as an upgrade to my gutless 1.4 and how much this simple swap would cost? I know the d16 as standard isnt anything magical either but im not looking for mega bhp at the moment just want to improve the overall drive and bit more grunt... but do have a plan to d16 turbo when ever possible with circumtances. Ive already contacted LF honda and although he replied a few times regarding d16 turbo and my budget, i didnt get the simple answer i want as above first sentence...either he is busy or not interested.. Im in west midlands dont mind travelling a bit and would like a drive in drive out service for a tidy swap with a healthy engine.. Sorry if this is boring but i appreciate any input...

    MA9 airbox?

    Hi mate Get some mg zs 16" hairpin wheels they look awesome on civics... Not expensive either can be had for 100 or less.. Ive got them on my mb2 had them powdercoated gunmetal... Heres a pic for inspiration.
  9. Anyone with a vti s hatch can show a pic or explain the proper fitting of the rear lip please... Ive fitted mine but just used the 4 screws that go on each end and im going to use black cable ties to go underneath holes cos i dont have the bolts or the plastic clips.... 2 things im not sure about is there some metal brackets that go in between the bumper and the lip where it meets the arches that the screws go through. Are these brackets supposed to be clipped in over the screw holes on the lip or the bumper it self? Also i noticed the top of the lip where it touches the bumper has slight gap so not a tight fit...is there supposed to be some 3m double sided strip to applied across the lip on the inside? I do have some 3m but ive read its supposed to be applied in warm weather or it wont bond... Sorry for long post but rather than put another thread up i might aswell ask here if anyone has any ideas if mg zs sideskirts can be fitted without those plastic clips that are fitted on the inside? Sadly i had mine painted then realized that all plastic clips and holders are non present as when i broke my zs earlier this year i unkowingly pulled the skirts incorrectly causing them to rip off.. Any help appreciated

    Under chassis rust

    Thanks for mentioning dynodaze kink i feel i can make use of a decent garage like this... Ive just had my old mg zs spoiler and side skirts sprayed to go on my mb2 i fitted my spoiler looks fantastic but ive hestitated to fit on the side skirts after pulling off drivers side standard skirt and finding dirt and crap on sills and then what i feel could be potential rust hidden behind the new skirts..... Ive decided to get the sills inspected/repaired before i go forward with fitting zs skirts and dynodaze sounds like the place to go to... Thanks
