well i decided to hunt for this elusive oil leak. so far i have replace the oil cap!

and at japfest when i was checking my oil i noticed that where the valve cover is bolted down was bubbling oil!





so i've cleaned the nuts down and and put a ring of silicon sealer around the base of the nut and i'm leaving them to dry before i put them back on. i didnt have any o rings in that size so i improvised.

also i emptied my catch can there was a bit of brown water in it and this was on the intake side of it



and i read somewhere about checking the serial number of a turbo to identify it?



well fitted some heatwrap and re ran a few cables to try tidy it up a bit.
i also took off the heatsheild as it wa poorly mounted and was vibrating against the block which was increadably annoying.

the mold would be the upper half and the lower half costing around 150 excluding labor per half then it all depends on the material

General Chat / carbon vented bonnets
« on: 17:09, Fri 16 September 2011 »
hey all i'm going to be putting a NACA vent onto my bonnet and then take a mold of it and replicate it.
my question is would there be interest in them? becuase i can save money on making the mold lighter (one use only) or i could make it stronger (more materials) but i'd have to be able to recoupe the cost of the mould on the bonnets i make.

it would be a direct replacement for the standard one.
 it could be made out of pure carbon fibre, a carbon skin over fibreglass, or just out of fibreglass.

if admin/staff want to delete this i understand and sorry :)
