    the chassis is in great condition but the body panels have all been "learner drivered" by someone with little experience - and rattle-canned back to silver ;-) I love the sprint farts but I really want to get them refurbed one day. They are one of  my favourite wheels. So light. So stylish.
  2. These aren't that effective in engines since a lot of the wear is non-magnetic material (bearing material especially). The best thing is spending more on good filters like Mann or Mahle/Knecht or OEM. They are more effective in gearbox/diffs for sure.. There's almost purely magnetic particles there and no filter.

    Actually flushed the heater matrix. It's improved the full heat :-) Fitted some centre caps with nice decals - I think Sprint Hart wheels are some of the best to ever come out of japan. Still loving this car. Tempted to put it on SSR Mesh come summer.

    I definitely need to flush the heater matrix on this car. The heat is only available *far* into the red of the dial. like, the last 3 clicks.

    Ooh! Triforce REEMS!

    Took the sill covers out and ACF50'd the sills. Fairly easy job.   Got about 38 MPG combined over a 300 mile trip.   What's with the 10L of fuel still in the tank when the gauge reads "E" for empty ?

    Also really lovely to see someone turning their own parts. Awesome.

    I found some rust under the battery tray   I've ACF50'd it tho, now. Need to find out how I can ACF50 the sills too before getting it into too much salt.

    Track car :-) Get some decent suspension (and maybe some bracing) and tyres before you both with power mods. I can recommend Meister R suspension...   The 4efe is fairly limited but 4efte and 4age swaps seem very popular.   (I'm keeping mine "standard" because my mod money goes to my roadsters)
  12. 4age (na) or 4efte (turbo).  the 4efe is an eco engine.

    Almost identical to my Sprint Harts. Thanks.

    I've got two of these - one in one mx5, one waiting to go into another. Well made ECUs :-)

    I switched to Millers CFS 5w40 and put redline in the gearbox. The gearbox's old oil looked like it was very old. Coolant looks great tho. I will flush the PS system soon though. The throttle cable was *very* slack with 15mm of play. Tightened it up to around 2mm play and the response is much improved. Previously the throttle was "nothing.. not much... mild power". Now it's much more direct. I suspect this will affect MPG. Reminder to anyone listening.. check your throttle cable play!
