Hoping this is a simple question since these have been fitted a few times. Can anyone confirm if the oil feed on one of these is M10x1 and if it needs to be restricted to 1.5mm please? The turbo is f...

Is the pump dry and has it had LDA or governor mods?

Bit of a long shot but does anyone know if a Bosch pump can be fitted to the Ford 1.8 TD engine and if so how complicated it is?

Post: RE: Front shocks

Any decent/ branded gas shocks will feel like an upgrade if yours are knackered. KYB or Bilstein will do a good job at standard height or even down to about a 35mm drop.

Ideal, POR15 is one of the very few things that actually keeps rust at bay. Just a pity there are so many steps to follow to get it right. I love how honest this thread is.
