Re: Recaro seats - tailor-made for a GTV6

Thanks - I pick them up on Sunday :)
The only thing decided so far is the seat colour - and must admit that I'm stuck as regards carpet colour. Stock is black, but the thought of a lighter shade is tempting - like 'tan' or 'biscuit'.

Re: 3 liter, 24 valve engine project

Cool - I'll test again when the leaks are fixed.
That is exactly where I see the remaining issues - at low rpms occasionally I will feel a misfire.

Re: 3 liter, 24 valve engine project

Hi Brian: I don't think the intake manifold I have was built in South Africa / Glenwood. All I know for sure is that it was supplied by Johan van Rensburg. The original intake manifold he gave me was so poorly built that the manifold intake ports did not align with the intake runners (see picture of...

Re: 3 liter, 24 valve engine project

Seattle's first snowfall of the season is scheduled for this weekend - a good time to start tearing the GTV6 apart to fix the things that have been bugging me. I'm installing an idle air control stepper motor which will allow me to set a target idle rev point and have Megasquirt manage the valve to ...

Hi Jim:

Are you still happy with the RWD plenum you used in your conversion?

Re: pwm idle valve Q

Hi Tim: I currently have no idle speed control (24valve running MS II) simply because I have not had the time to implement one. Even so, its pretty reaosnable. The car starts immediately (no throttle required) but after it starts I find I need to keep the throttle open wider than normal to maintain ...
