Very nice Steve  8)
I'm looking at white 5's for when my KA sells. And James is on a 4 hunt too  :D

Very nice.

I had my eye on a Met Grey 4 last year, the colour was important because they always seem to be white.

But it wasn't to be, lucky really because given my financial situation shortly afterwards i would have had to get shot of it anyway.

Maybe one day i will look into them again, at the moment i've gone all OAP wafting about in the Saab.  :mrgreen:

I had a crazy quote ~450 when i was looking last year, i assume this was in error because it seems to have tripled now.  :shock:

Has it got security? I don't think they have from factory and every insurance company i tryed insisted on a tracker being fitted.

Make sure you check the 'AYC' light comes on and off on the dashboard, some sneaky people unplug them and the diffs are something ridicolous like 5000 from Mitsubishi.  :o

You can get the diffs alot cheaper else where new or a refurbed jobbies only know as I have been looking into them just in case I get one and need to do the job :D

Does look fantastic though Steve as per facebook thread well jealous :D

I'll keep that in mind.  8)

They should be bombproof if serviced correctly though.

Jealous myself, black always looks good when waxed up all shiny!  8)

Yeah new diff is around 2k from the stealers.... about 400> from anywhere else 2nd hand..
Thing is with 4's is the crank walk issues, it's because of the thrust bearings & so if the clutch gets loaded hard it yanks at the crank sideways & wears the bearings :(
Can't wait till next week, got alot of sorting out to do, the Rover needs to go ASAP as well.
It will be worth it ... Boost up to 1.1 bar & away we go .. happy days.

superb evo steve,i do love the 5s i had my eye on one a few years back,but settled for an 8 the missus liked it better you know what women are like :lol: if you keep her service mate you should have no problems bud what is she pumping out standard? the great thing about em is you put on an exhaust and decent filter and remap another 100 horses no probs,happy motoring anyway bud enjoy  8)
Title: Re: My new toy.....
Post by: 5teve L on 16:51, Sun 24 January 2010
According to the last RR figures she's slightly underpower, I recon it's a weak actuator or maybe worst case the wastegate on the turbo... it's running .9bar at the mo, looking to prob run it up to 1.1 bar or maybe slightly more once remapped.
Needs a decat pipe for sure.

Actuators are prone to getting a bit rusty crusty.

Post by: 5teve L on 10:42, Tue 02 February 2010
Well the diff may or may not be knackered, the jury is still out on that one.. getting the AYC fluid changed later today to see of it sorts it. To be fair the bloke did say it got noisey sometimes. Love it though, glad I bought it.

fingers crossed it's just the ayc oil that needs changing/ flushing through

Post by: 5teve L on 09:20, Wed 03 February 2010
yay, AYC done & noises gone, just need to sort the actuator issues now RE the lazy boost :)
Bonus is I also found the paperwork for the alarm & somewhere that sells fobs for it, happy days :)
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: Ash-Lee on 10:30, Wed 03 February 2010
Nice one.  8)

A big relief as well i imagine.
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 17:44, Thu 04 February 2010
Yeah a big relief, no AYC light on the dash though on start up..hmmmm..
Fitted a system in the car today, got the alarm working off a fob & no noises from the diff yet. New actuator next week to see if the boost problem gets sorted & then fit an EBC & get remapped to run 1.5 bar, should see 340bhp  :twisted:
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 18:04, Sun 07 February 2010
Blimey these Evo's are expensive to maintain lol.
Sounds like a wheel bearing has gone on the rear..that will be 160 then, may need a new thermostat or waterpump as well as the temp stays really low at the mo & the rad gets hot... hopefully get the car on Evoscan sometime soon to flash out the fault codes....
Still love it though :)

 What are Evo's like for reliabilty in general?  I always imagined they were bullet proof.  Thats going to be a beast.. keep us posted :)

8)  Do you get much lag? what kind of rpm does it really take off?
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 19:34, Mon 08 February 2010
no real lag at all mines a little lazy though (actuator) but just over 3k is full boost IIRC on a standard car, they pull like stink as well :)

Steve I have an obd2 reader matey that may be able to get rid of some of your fault codes but unfortunstky it doesn't do all codes.

Post by: Ash-Lee on 22:00, Wed 10 February 2010
You can buy the connectors and i'm sure someone in the Evo scene will have the appropriate software so you can connect it up to a PC.

Theres a load for my Saab, even ready made maps. Tempted to flash the 210BHP map on mine.  :twisted:
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 08:17, Thu 11 February 2010
Yeah there are the same for Evo's, ecuflash I think it's called.
Hopefully got a guy coming to take a look with evoscan soon, at least I'll know what probs I have or don't have.
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: Billiam on 20:18, Sat 13 February 2010
Steve, if you're going for 1.5 bar, don't forget to change the fuel pump.  The standard one is only good for 1.3 bar, apparently.....
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 18:08, Mon 15 February 2010
Slight update as i'll be adding some bits over the next week or so.. Parts on the way are..
Stainless manifold, 3" downpipe + de-cat, new turbo as i think mine has issues with the wastegate poppet not sealing, mishimoto (sp) alloy race radiator & some poly rear diff bushes & front ARB bushes (which look a right PITA to fit BTW), then see if I can sort the idle control out as it's playing up !
Prob get it geekmapped as well & run 1.4 bar boost  
  :mrgreen:

Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 18:49, Mon 15 February 2010
Well I usually start with the suspension but this had it all done so it allows me to get into the serious stuff sooner  :twisted:
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: r5matt on 18:56, Mon 15 February 2010
atleast thats done then ,  :wink: What sort of power are you hoping to be gaining out of your new additions once mapped up Etc ? you going to have it live mapped ? Been hearing this is the way forward . so the ford scene says .... :roll:
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......
Post by: 5teve L on 19:42, Mon 15 February 2010
Yeah will prob just flash a map onto the rom using ecuflash. Will be hoping to hit around 350  with 1.4 bar, maybe 1.5 bar...

Got my new evo 8 MR turbo today, same spec as my turbo but single flapper so sort of an upgrade :)

hey steve,how are you getting on with your power figures? see you have been a busy boy with the parts  :lol: you should see a good gain with your mods,im running full stainless exhaust,air filter and walboro fuel pump and a remap and ran 351bhp @ 25psi with 315 lbft of torque on the rollers,the operator told me to get a bigger actuator,boost controller a turbo elbow, and a hard pipe for the induction kit and should be nearer the 400 mark anything over that your speaking cams,injectors and some serious cash :lol: but what the hell there great cars enjoy  8)
Title: Re: Back in a 5.......

The standard mani has SAS pipes that supposedly act like mild anti-lag or something, I've just binned them as they look gash & apparently do feck all really, a bit like some of the bits on the GTT I suppose,  lol.

Ok fitted the rad today & looked at the turbo, swapped actuators over & the new one is wrong it seems ! Put the actuator off the new turbo on my old turbo & i have boost !!!
Bugger as I paid 350 for the other turbo, suppose it's a good spare though.. or send it to CR for a hybrid  :twisted:

Hybrid matey, you know a standard turbo is no good for you in your constant quest for power. Youll get 350bhp and then still want more  :lol:  :twisted:

Car made 298.5 bhp @ a bar boost, happy with that.

Top Darts  - you should have said you were going to SPC I would have popped along matey :D  Good result though bet your chuffed matey you just need to find another 50 bhp to hit your target. (what is the Evo 5 standard bhp?)

Have you had it remapped yet?? as you said above more boost will defo assist and I am not sure what the OE injectors limits are.

Standard is around 280bhp IIRC so up 20bhp nearly with just downpipe, filter & de-cat.

I'm really loving the Evo, pulls like a train even at a bar boost, was out last night giving it a blast & I'm getting used to the way it handles now  :twisted:  awesome on corners but once you commit you have to keep going, if you lift the back end gets erm, a bit light  :shock:

Sounds like my 205 GTI's, had some proper brown trouser moments on wet corners. If you enter a corner to fast, just keep your foot on it and hope for the best. I have never been so scared. That's what happens when an 18 year old lad hops into one after owning a 1.2 Clio.

Fingers crossed all is good, I take it is being done at Mitisi is that the Mitis garage down Hove / southwick way?  I love going past there they have an old Rally Evo upstairs looks fantastic.

Thinking of changing my rims & dropping down to 17's

White 17 Enkei's

Or keep the 18" Speedlines?

I'd LOVE a set of the Enkei WRC multispokes for mine (the same as those TME ones, only wider), but I can't fit 17's on my car because of the brakes  :(

I do plan on getting my wheels powder coated white though.

A guy on the MLR wants to do a swap + 100 for my rims, the wheels have been refurbed as well.. tempting as tyres are easier to get & a little cheaper as well, plus it should handle better, not that it's bad now though.

Also found my fuel filler now leaks, brimmed the tank sat & it was dripping from it, looks like new filler pipe, I bet thats a fun job to do as well :(

Sounds a good deal Steve for that I would be very tempted to do it.

The Evo needs more repairs than the 5 GTT  :lol:
