General Technical / Oil Filter Sandwich plate - Where from??
« on: November 12, 2004, 09:24:16 AM »
Hi Gregor

People have been tapping into the bung on the oil cooler to fit their gauges, personaly l would not advise the sandwich plate or the remote oil filter route as l have now seen these spew lots of oil on more than one occation on FD\'s.

( real cheap way of loseing a damn expensive engine)

I ask, because I do not want to change the battery, then find that the unit has gone into "security mode", because it thinks it been nicked!


If it\'s just a change of battery and you don\'t find out about codes, how about a set of jump leads connected to the terminals of your battery  to another car or battery while you change the one on the car to keep a feed going to your radio/ alarm.

Hi Mark,

Last weekend l supplied and fitted a Tein Flex kit to an FD

As a new Tein distributor I didn\'t know really what their stuff was like and having raced for many years using lots of different coil over systems l have a little idea of what is good and bad.

I can tell you that l have been very impressed not only with the build quality, the adjustability of the units and it\'s damping capabilities, but also because where the strut\'s are two way adjustable on the platforms, they let you adjust the preload into the springs you want, then just by undoing one locking ring you can wind the whole unit into the lower part of the strut to lower or raise the car very quickly without unseating the springs from their platforms like most kits.

( These things are so adjustable you can either have the Range Rover look or dump it on it\'s door sills!)

Another added bonus was when l drove the car down the road on it\'s medium damper settings the car now just soaks up bumps and pot holes unlike the normal take yer teeth out crashes and bangs that go on in an FD with a trip down your high street !!.

BTW we have been offering a £50 (before VAT) discount to orders that come via Mazdarotaryclub for the Flex kit.  

Hope this helps.

All the Best

Wheels & Tyres, Suspension & Brakes / disc and pad combo??!!! HELP!!

Hmmmmm, never heard that one, obviously l can only comment on the cars that I have experiance of as l try not to go by \'hearsay\' where parts are conserned, l can tell you though that performance Disc\'s don\'t last as long as standard Disc\'s due to softer metals being used to increase the coefficient of friction .

BTW we are Brembo distributors, l will check if they have a listing for an FD as not all brake manufactures list the FD due to it being a low volume car.

p.s. we can do you some real nice Big Brembo 4 pots as seen in the link at well below list.

p.p.s what ever you choose please don\'t even think about EBC as l would not not even use that product to prop the office door open let alone sell you their stuff !!!

Hi Ed,

As Max says if you really want to get serious you will need Big brakes.

Personaly l never did like the HP+ in the front as l found them very grab n stop!

This may help as an interim fix-
We do have quite a few trackday FD\'s running HT10 in the front and HP+ in the back (to keep the brake bias) with either drilled and slotted Black Diamond or slotted Mintex disc\'s, and I know our customers are happy with this set up.

Hope this helps.

If you slide in the foot well and look up above the clutch pedal you will see a small tube (around 3in long) with lock nuts either end, a couple of 12mm spanners fit the nuts l think.

Undo the lock nuts and turn the tube to increase or decrease pedal travel.

Hope this helps

Sounds like you need a set of Hawk HT10\'s in the front also a  set  of HP+  in the back would help keep your brake balance and also improve your braking performance overall.

Hawk HT10  / front £129+ VAT

Hawk HP+ / rear £42.74 + VAT

Hope this helps

All the best Clive

Just looked in the 99 parts book and for a 16in wheel some have a 225/50/16 tyre and some have a 255/50/16 option on the same width wheel.

So if you want some extra rubber it\'s O/K.
