    Car cutting out when jump leads pulled off

    Might be the alternator still, Stick the multimeter directly on the alternator terminal if you can get to it.

    7e swap

    It goes alright, its never going to break necks as it's n/a with 175hp odd in a 940kg car (ep91 SR) I could shed some weight from it as its got full interior etc. But for me i just like the high revving nature of it all and trying to make it a usable daily car.

    7e swap

    7e? Do you mean 7afe? As in the 1.8l It might look similar but its a lot of work to fit and involves cutting chassis legs and other stuff. I have a 4age in my car (1.6l) which is the same engine family "A series" so the work required to fit either is similar.

    Welcome, not seen a sunroof like that before. Looks like a lovely example, get some glanza mirrors for it will compliment it nicely

    Morgey's 20v SR

    Hmm i think im going to stick a new o2 in it and see how it goes, i dont really fancy throwing another £1k + at it just now, I know its really the best option but If its running ok then so be it. I still need to look at the powersteering and make that heavier, then I'll be pretty happy with the car and will start using it more and find the love for it again, maybe then I'll be more inclined to throw some extra money at it.

    Now you mention it it is a tad leaner, maybe thats down to it having some drop in poncams now. Itsmaking more power and torque than previous and the tester did seem happy enough with it so ill carry on using it for now. I took it out for a drive afterwards and it did feel quicker so im wondering if it was just a bit choked up for being sitting around and only warmed from time to time? The other issue is I dont have any means of adjusting fuelling currently so unless i stick an aftermarket fpr i cant see me being able to make any changes. Just as a comparison 2011 run was Hks mushroom filter with long arm intake Factory trumpets in plenum Oem ht leads 4-2-1 obx manifold Decat 2.5" header back exhaust. Factory auto ecu. Speed limited C52 5speed box 2018 run was Oem airfilter in factory air box 30mm apex trumpets (advised to switch back to oem) Spitfire 8mm ht-leads 4-2-1 fgk manifold Decat 2.5" manifold back exhaust Factory auto ecu delimited C56 5 speed box

    Riiiight, so had it on the dyno, did some load testing and power runs to test fuelling under a range of conditions. Good news is its not that bad, its rich on idle, around 13.5 - 13.9. Cruising was ok at 14.7-15.1, jumping around a bit but otherwise where it should be. And under WOT its pretty much where it should be and i had a look back over an old dyno from 2011 when it had a similar setup and the AFR graph was almost identical so i guess i got panicked over nothing other than maybe a faulty o2 sensor. As for power, its a different dyno to previous runs but the figures were about on par. Again huge driveline losses but identical to previous runs elsewhere so not sure whats causing that but results were 178fly @ 8400 132wheel 46hp loss... 122lbft @ 6200 New run fuelling is the ditty one in pink lol old run from 2011 fuelling at bottom As you can see, they are almost identical leaning out and richening up in the same places.

    Fair play for having a go lad, its a good way to learn but it can be costly. Trust me, I've caused myself a few headaches by not doing my research or asking a few questions. If you're in doubt about anything, have a quick search in the tech area for some key words to what you're doing. Theres a search function to narrow things down. Secondly failing that, bung a post up asking some questions, outlining what you're doing and what info you'd like to know. although it may not seem it at times, we are a friendly bunch who want to see people and their projects succeed

    LSD recommendations

    Ae111 facebook pages, most likely in a gearbox. If looking through the diff They look like a solid plate, theres a very small gap down either side but its hard to see

    Yup quiafe for road. or a trd torsen/helical, if you could find one, Theyre basically the same as what got put in ae111 levin bzr's. I have one in both my cars and they're great.

    Right, ran over mosts bits in the engine bay with a multimeter, checking resistance or voltage. Tps sweep test, Map, Iat, Injectors, o2, water temp. Etc etc Everything checked fine out so next thing will be mechanical items, fpr, and fuel pump fuel injectors then ecu. Hopefully the dyno run tomorrow will shed some light on what it could be as im running out of ideas lol
