Re: 416 gti auto

Far nicer on the roversport wheels I think. Looks like he's done a bit of work tidying up the engine bay too

416 gti auto

Re: New coilovers

I've used gaz GHA's on a couple of other cars, but the non-gold ones with just the rebound adjustment. Really well made and you can fairly dial them in even with just the rebound, and gaz themselves are more than happy to swap out springs for different rates and service dampers all at good rates.

Re: Cylinder head dowels (T16)

Cylinder head dowels (T16)

Hi all. I've been searching for some steel head dowels for my 220 t series engine as my plastic ones have disintegrated. Are these readily available items? All I can seem to find are ones for k series and td5 engines that seem to have similar problems but am unsure of the sizes of these. Has anyone ...

Re: 220 gsi x2

I saw the lad who bought it posting on one of the facebook groups asking about doing a turbo conversion

Delighted with the car so far, always wanted one of these so when I seen this I thought it was the perfect excuse for (another) winter project :laughing2 I've seen a lot of interestin...
