Unfortunatly this is the current state of the car....
The small leak that I\'ve always had with the oil cooler has got worse over the last couple of days.
I thought it was the knackered crush washer causing the leak. But having investigated further the oil cooler itself is cracked
The oil leaks now at a stage where I cant really drive the car till I\'ve got a new cooler.
If anyones got an FC oil cooler about the place please let me know!
I\'ve also been back to the exhaust shop to have a diffuser fitted to the exhaust tip to try and cut some of the drone on motorway/cruising. Its worked very well but the design they\'ve built for me seems to also whistle a little.
This fits in the very tip of the exhaust. According to megasquirt I\'ve lost no volumetric efficiency by fitting it despite it looking like quite a restriction the tip is the coolest slowest flowing section of the exhaust so least critical.
I think I\'m gonna try and make my own diffuser along the lines of the ones used by a few guys on the american rx7club forum, as in this picture, to try and keep the reduction in volume but also not whistle!
Its quite disheartening that I don\'t seem to be able to drive it for more than a couple of days at a time without running into a problem
Ah well, onwards and upwards....
