Re: Wheels & tyre options for s treet buggy

I know John Sherman does all the blanks and can drill and tap them for you, Todd from Subarugears can supply rears in whatever stud pattern you want with his Subabrakes, apart from that not sure bud.

Re: Wheels & tyre options for s treet buggy

Adapters are illegal, I too struggled to find wheels in 4x130, if I did it again I would get new discs/drums in a common pattern like ford Holden or Toyota. You can buy all sorts of electronic speedos that can be adjusted for different tyre sizes so no issues there.

EJ22 VSS issues I think...

So I have got my Subarugears/Ej22 conversion running and driving, the only issue I have is a intermittent code 24 (idle air control valve open or short) I have cleaned the valve and it was spotless, functions perfectly at a cold start. All continuity checks out perfect. The only thing that came up r...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Thanks heaps guys, it is so very close to being finished, on the sneaky run to the servo to fill up I had a code 24 pop up, idle air control valve, and the associated stalling on hard deceleration, so hopefully that comes up with a clean, the speedo is working but I had trouble getting the right pul...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

IT RUNS!!! :mrgreen: Finished building the exhaust today and got the balls to turn the key, fired up instantly and sat there and purred like a kitten, really stoked with the note of the exhaust, (I built a unequal length header system for that subaru burble) it is a tad too deep but I have a low vol...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

I bought a shortened set of headers in stainless to build my exhaust from, really not impressed with them at all, I have never seen somebody so unimpressed with their tig welds that they have to be ground down.. and they are still too bloody long and foul on the cage. So it looks like I will just ha...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Started mounting the cooling lines and the heater lines today but ran out of them rubber coated 'p clamps' Got one side done though. Had to crack out the hole saw again and punch two holes in the side of the car just in front of the pedals so I can get coolant to the yet to be fitted heater. Ended u...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Well I had the worst couple of weeks I have ever had, my wife and I had to put our beloved cat Misha down, she was almost 12 years old we have had her since she was 3. She got a virus and pneumonia just after we got back from holidays and just couldn't shake it. We are absolutely gutted. This has af...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

I have two fill points, a low one just under the air box on the suction side, and the high point in the car on the pressure side. I also have a bleed point on the radiator. Hopefully that'll be enough to get all the air out. I don't have any bleeds on the heater/bypass lines but I think I won't need...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Had a big day yesterday with my mate helping me weld up the cooling lines and a couple of small fittings for the heater. Had another day in the garage today, mounted up the coolant lines, made up most of the heater lines as well, made the harness for the fan, hooked up a switch so I can turn the fan...
