Blast I'n the gtt
« on: 23:51, Tue 10 May 2011 »
Hi ppl just took my car out for a spin I'n Leeds town and it's rapid now the boost is Set to 18psi. After 30mins tho there was water I'n the passenger footwell but I just fink it's the heater matrix leaking, would radweld fix it?. My m8t came along for the ride and sed that he would swop his Saab 93 aero for it because it makes him smile too much, lol I sed no. Just need to sort that leak out and a loose wire on the alternator and will give it another run 2moz. Any one fancy a meet I'n Leeds sumtime pm me.

DOn't use rad weld all it will do is bung up your coolant system.

You want to replace the heater matirx.

To be honest for now you could always bypass it by merely joining the 2 pipes that go into the car in the engine bay together. :mrgreen:

yep mean's no heat, but summer's on it's way so u may not need it

to change the matrix it's a dash out and a royal pain in the arse to do!!!

Exactly right fecking pain to do, matirx new is about 30 but as already said above it's coming up for summer gives you time to drive the car and then when you can be bothered remove dash and replace, radweld won't fix the leak just fuck up your coolant system.

Got the wire on my alternator sorted and put the heater matrix hoses together. Think I will go out and see what my new Toyo t1r are like

A yorkshire meet would be good. Just come back from trying the toyos and it don't spin I'n every gear now lol, went to get sum fuel and then the starter motor decided not to work so just bumped it and brought her home.
