    Wanted: EP91 NA Bonnet

    Green would be ideal, but any colour considered as long as no dents or rust. Ideally Midlands area so I can collect Ian

    The Bilstein stuff looks tempting too, it was top notch on my Evo VIII

    Hi all, My Koni's have been on since 2003 and are beyond knackered, The springs are just as old and everything could do with refreshing, can you still get Koni Suspension? if not, whats the best bet? Would consider Coilovers but need to be suitable (ie not rock hard!) also, want to keep my current ride height if poss. been out the game a while now so don't know who's still doing what and what's available.

    Technically a Newb

    Hi Folks, Used to be on here when it was UKSC but we won't go there ;) Still got my Starlet, it's back on the road and doing fine, just bought another to overhaul and upgrade mine as it was poverty spec and doesn't even have power steering! Ian

    excellent, so what's missing from that? looks like rack itself, and the hard piping? funny, you're doing PAS delete and i'm converting my non-pas car :D
  16. Hi Folks, I've entered a road rally and my car is rather low, so i could do with some stock EP91 springs and dampers front and rear I can put onto the car to raise it up a bit. Midlands area preferred unless you are prepared to post? Cheers, Ian

    keep EP91 or Buy EVO 8/9

    honestly, i dont think that will be enough power. to get the 'powerful starlet' feel, you're looking around 350-400bhp. that is achievable with bolt on mods and a remap

    The 5 Speed is the stronger box. Mine's a 5 speed. ;)

    Awful pedal feel after fitting twinpots

    I run 4 pots on the standard uk starlet BMC and servo no problem? was gonna suggest the upsidedown calipers problem but someone beat me to it, ahah

    getting rolling then flooring it should be fine, it's just standing launches can break things if done too often. same with most 4WD cars though to be honest, it's not that you shouldn't do them, it's you shouldn't do them too often ;) the evo has 2 step built in so will hold the revs at 5.5k if you floor it in neutral, so it's not like it's not designed to get off the line quick :}

    currently running an Evo 8, but still have the Starlet tucked away It's lightly modded, uprated turbo, cams, intercooler, map etc. last rr printout 408bhp but i reckon it's about 370-390 . It's quick, pulls hard and is one of the best sounding cars i've owned. handling is also great as you'd expect and you can feel the AYC pushing you into a corner. it's not all that refined. although leagues ahead of the starlet, haha. But it's little things like terrible steering lock, can barely make some junctions, and forget about doubling back on a mini roundabout. jerky in traffic and just generally mechanically a little 'noisy' . none of this is a worry as that's the type of car it is. it's like a more grown up starlet and a natural stepping stone away from it. I don't think you'd be disappointed. fuel economy 15-20 round town, less if you floor it, 25 -30 on a run . no major reliability issues, but did spend a little when first bought it sorting some things out, since then though just servicing and fuel. drivetrain can be a little fragile and wouldn't recommend too many launches else you could well be picking your transfer case up off the road.
