    Clutch recommendations

    What clutch would people recommend for a B18c around 350hp, I know torque is usually the limiting factor but not entirely sure what it'll make Want something that can handle the increase but isn't going to be like an on/off switch and make the thing awful to drive

    Been thinking of experimenting with fitting a rotrex.. but don't want a full kit like the kraftwerks etc. Will be making my own mounts as it's a B18c6 in a kit car... probably a long shot but if anyone's got one from an abandoned project or whatever let me know. May be interested in a S300 too...

    For some reason I can't get the idea out of my head of getting a B20 block, some nice forged pistons and my B18C6 type R internals, head etc to make a B19. I know there have been mixed findings with B20 reliability, particularly the sleeves however if I understand rightly this is more of an...

    Chip burning help & Moates 2timer

    Anyone here using a 2timer? I just got one from Htune and it doesn't seem to work. Htune stacked the maps and burned the chip too and they are adamant they burned it correctly so I've asked them to send me another 2timer to try. There were two maps, one had launch and the other didn't so it's...

    What intake - B18C-R non std application..

    Hi guys, some of you may have already seen my car on the forum.. I have the Kevlar whale c*ck set up which seemed a good way of getting the filter away from the silencer which sits directly under the intake manifold, however, wherever you put the filter it's a bad place really - I've even...

    Not charging

    Got car running, only seeing 12v though at the battery so it's not charging. Was fine before and as far as I'm aware I've put everything back as it was. Plugged the alternator in and the earth lead from the alternator I've put to the gearbox where my main earth from the battery is, seem OK??

    Fuel but no spark???

    Finally come round to trying it and it just won't run. Plugs are wet, no spark. Tried the standard leads and MSD ones no difference. Plugs are ok. Dizzy was fine when I removed the head from the b16a2 .... Everything's timed up ok etc. Not sure what could cause lack of spark on these engines...

    Steam seal tool??

    Had a nightmare at the weekend trying to remove the stem seals, was using a tool like this that my dad has used for years but f**k me, they would not budge!! I think the problem is that this tool just clamps around them so if anything can crush the seals on the guides tighter, it doesn't...
