  1. hey everyone, this might seem like a stupid question but anyway, ive noticed at the car wash where you do it yourself that there is a setting for engine bay cleaner where you can spray the engine bay. i was wondering if this is dangerous at all to do? wont water get into the pod filter and then get sucked into the engine? i want to clean my engine bay so any advice would be appreciated! cheers
  2. Hi everyone, ive been having this problem with my car lately.. btw its an R32 lately, after boosting, sometimes it goes lumpy (sounding a bit like a wrx). when this happens, it also loses alot of power, but still drives. when looking at the boost gauge it says the turbo is boosting fine, but it seems as though the air isnt getting to the engine or something? the car becomes very non responsive and sounds terrible. it has an am performance dump and screamer, could it be that the screamer is staying open and letting most of the air from the turbo straight out? when it happens also the car runs very rich (according to the little gauge). if i turn the car off and leave it for a while then its usually fine when i turn it back on, but if i pull over when it happens, turn it off and on and then keep going, it doesnt stop. what could this be?? cheers
  3. hey everyone, as stated in the title ive got a misfire on my 3rd coilpack in my rb20. im lead to believe its a problem with the ignition not fuel, as alot of unburnt fuel is coming out of the exhaust. what should i do to fix this? do i need to take it to an auto electrician? or is it simple and something i can do myself? cheers
  4. Compulsory overtime

    ahah theres always that option!
  5. sounds like ice or something to me? maybe a mixture of things..
  6. Instant Coffee

    bullshit! you ever seen or talked to a barrister (the coffee makers not the other type) they don't add milk first! ever seen a barrister use instant coffee?
  7. Instant Coffee

    yea man you need to dissolve the coffee in the milk before adding the boiling water otherwise you 'burn off' alot of the taste!
  8. Compulsory overtime

    yea dude check everything that youve signed, you may have signed something saying you'll do at least 40 hours a week or something?
  9. Who here likes Doco's?

    BBC's the great feast. absolutely amazing!
  10. Green zone a must watch

    im not usually into war movies, but i really enjoyed this one. very interesting!
  11. Underbelly - the golden mile thread

    the golden mile definitely has absolutely nothing on the first series. not enough murders and stuff, not much progress in the plot from week to week.. still good to watch though!
  12. probably a repost, but i love this pic! i meant this one...
  13. spraying intercooler

    in the end applying a coat of anything to your intercooler is going to reduce its efficiency, although with a thin coat of paint you shouldnt notice this reduction.
  14. limiter

    what speed limit were r32's limited to? just out of curiosity, ive never been that fast in my 32...
  15. noob question

    there will be tonnes of other bolts, or atleast should be. for the sideskirts there might also be some if you open the door and look down, front bar under the bonnet and in the wheel arch (you might need to take the wheels off for this, and for the rear bar in the wheel arch, and also open the boot, take the carpet out and there will probably be some through there aswell, but thats all depending on how well the kit was put in in the first place!
  16. im interested to hear what people say, i think i may have a similar problem.

  18. also, if it is just the screamer staying open, causing a boost leak, and making the car run really rich, is this bad for the car? its happened a few times lately, and ive just continued driving. what are the risks, if any, of driving a car running really rich? cheers
