  4. Do make sure you use new injector rings when you put them back in, definitely need a new rocker gasket, that's what is on your inlet runners, oil,. Clean your plenum with carby cleaner and your IACC valve ..Just a tip, don't use it on you throttle body butterfly valve, it has a special non stick treatment on the edges and you will take that off which will cause it to stick...Repace all those old vacuum lines..

    Yeah the DBA 4000 slotted are very good all round rotors, never had any issues with street and occasional track days
  13. Let's Talk Brake Pads!

    Apart from good pads two of the best things I did to improve braking durability on the track was remove backing plates and install air ducting guides, brought my braking temperatures down significantly....
  14. Let's Talk Brake Pads!

    My favourite pad now as well for street and track the Project Mu HC+ and after 12 years of S15 ownership I have used a lot of different pads, Bendix Ultimates, Hawk, Ferodo DS2500, Endless CC-X, Mu B Spec's and Endless CCR's...The HC+ are my choice for Track and street...
  15. From memory, plug and play, the auto ECU is a piggy back ECU attached to the larger ECU, just plug your manual ECU loom into the unit as you wont have the Auto loom, you should be able to remove the piggy back auto ECU of the main ECU
