Photos and videos / Re: A few pics of my Mk2 G40
« Last post by rubyatiy on January 14, 2019, 01:57:29 pm »
Interesting, I run the Koni yellow 40mm kit spring and dampers and understood it was one of the softest kits.
I think the only way to get softer is to use original springs? unless someone has further PhenQ Review info to read.

I think the G40 looks great in dark grey like that.

These was not creating that hype because of those kit spring are not huge from 40 mm

Started the car up to warm the water up before changing it... It's not been started for ages, I expected quite a it of water to come out because it was cold but it was like a vape, massive clouds of steam and quite a spray from the exhaust, then it cleared, sound...

Took the water out, left overnight, put new in, started, not a drip...
Left it 2 weeks, started it, massive cloud, ran for a bit, then started backfiring I think out the inlet, it wouldn't rev, then died, and just won't start again (or for the half hour I tried)

'Think there might be water in the petrol-tank? Should it even be a consideration? It has sat for 10 years, could that be the problem?

I'm away for a bit soon so it matters not, but it will when the sun comes out...

Can find a 50mm, within budget based on exchange.

No worries fella. Always good to keep it if my other manifold doesn't quite work out.

Electrical / Trigger wheels
« Last post by Agent47 on January 10, 2019, 09:27:53 pm »
Been talking to my ECU supplier and he mentioned needing a trigger wheel. From memory and pictures I don't think there much room timing end to fit one, and if im thinking correctly i'd need to space out all the other pulleys, and likely affect the balancing done to all my rotating parts, is this correct?

I met a guy (maybe on the forum) with a turbo G40 running an Emerald ECU I think, and he had a handy solution. Said he used a Lupo crankseal (flywheel end) that has an integrated trigger wheel and drilled a hole in the gearbox for the sensor wire to come through.


I know a few of you are thinking of going stand alone so thought i'd float this to see what people think.

Sorry I managed to find one and have spent some time porting it out and matching it to my head. Thanks though.

Potentially got one, it's not fully standard though, gentle opening up of the ports and smoothed out as much of the inside as possible.

I'm using the ones from maxrpm (ta technix I think), everything I looked at seemed to be made from the same material just different fasteners.
