Re: Edis .....or not

I'm running an MS1 (through-hole board as you put it) with EDIS8 on my 5.7 twin turbo chevy - it's been in there for years, my board was just after the second group buy around 2003.

Re: P38 Auto Box

Certainly on the GM Hyrdamatic boxes - the physical tailshaft is a different length between 2 and 4wd, necessitating a strip down.

Cant comment on the 4hp stuff, but I've always read that you get a jag/bm 4hp and swap the bellhousing over.

Re: Inlet manifold

i think the posted is stating that the pipes have corroded and have holes in them - I believe you can just not attach the coolant hoses at the front of the manifold if you are not using the heater matrix.

Re: Okp aka dan

That rover will be a low compression gutless slug - fine to get yourself up and running, but don't waste your money trying to fix/upgrade it - start with something better once you have the funds.

Re: Plug Leads Advice.......

I've had all mine custom made up by Fastlane Automotive, who are now know as FLA manufacturing. http://www.fla-manufacturing.com/products/index They still make leads for individuals, just tell them what lengths you want, the edis cap type, what plug end you want and any special things like heat slee...

Re: No spark at plugs

How decent is the spark from the king-lead? You say you have 12v and a non ballast (12v) coil - which means your coil is correct? Even if you have a ballast coil, you can try hard-jumping 12v direct to the coil+ to eliminate all wiring and the 12v boost wire from the starter (or a relay) - dont leav...

Re: Air suspension pneumatic tube

doesn't appear to be anything special to me.

Had considered adding air suspension to the dakar, but wondered if there's any difficulty with insurance, as it's a fairly fundamental (if simple) change.

Re: Ported plenum adjustments

Even as someone who sells 72mm plenums, I would have to ask why you think you need a 72mm plenum?
What other supporting work have you carried out? Do you still run an air flow meter?

Re: Ported plenum adjustments

(I make the 72mm plenums) As described above, you need to centralise the throttle plate inside the bore. There's two screws that clamp it, the ends of the screws are flared apart to retain them - you may be able to loosen them enough without squashing the threads back together in order to be able to...

Good to see the fast car magazine article - that presumably was the one he referenced in his notes on my manifold archive.
