    That’s a great help cheers! Do you know if any cars can book in for the ford Hot hatch trackday in May or is that a ford only event? Ideally we wanted to get on track in April but there doesn’t seem to be any track days that month

    17 inch rims for ek9

    My car makes around 270hp and 220 ft.lbs with peak torque coming in quite early in the revs and holding well.... The car has no problem turning a set of 17x9 wheels and my lap times improved every time I went up a tyre size and width The Dunlop slicks that I use are very light as well as the...

    17 inch rims for ek9

    I run a 17x9 front and 17x8 rear of the race car, the car looks better imo. It works best on track so far with this wheel setup compared to running 15’s and 16’s

    Has anyone used these K-swap exhaust manifolds?

    What you are saying is right, if you can afford the big tube it will be the slightly better flowing design of the 2 esp with the larger k24 capacity and the quality is better than the cheaper version as expected You will not have any problems with the cheaper design and its still welded well...

    Has anyone used these K-swap exhaust manifolds?

    I have used the K-tuned manifold and it works well. There is a bit more power to me made from the Ktuned big tube manifold which I'm using now but not a massive amount... bigger gains will depend on what other breathing or internal modifications are used. The big tube version is also a good...

    Si's second attempt at a DC2

    Maybe your OEM radiator has a load of damaged fins? Or is there an air con rad in front of the radiator? A good aftermarket radiator will help keep oil temps down up to a certain point but for track work like you say it’s not really up to the job for more than a couple of laps and that’s when...

    Si's second attempt at a DC2

    I know you meant oil temps but the OEM oil cooler/heat exchanger is cooled by your coolant so the less efficient the coolant radiator the less effective it is at cooling the oil and it doesn’t really do enough cooling for track work I ran a B16b ek9 with a close gear set so it didn’t drop...

    Si's second attempt at a DC2

    Normal road driving you should’nt see much more than 110degrees so either your gauge is reading high or your OEM heat exchanger/radiator isn’t working too well An external oil cooler will take a bit of strain away from the coolant system too I’m using a forged k24 bottom end with a standard...

    Si's second attempt at a DC2

    I’ve seen a few oil experts talking about the same subject and they were explaining that thinner oil actually takes heat out of an engine more efficiently than thicker oil I run a 280hp DC2 with close gearing in 20min races using 5w40 Ester synthetic oil up to 130degrees without any issues...

    Si's second attempt at a DC2

    The Nurburgring is an awesome place, we were there in July in 2 EP3’s and a Golf GTI and I want to get back out again already With the Oil, you should imo stick to the 10w40 or 5w40 and fit the oil cooler, your engine wasn’t built for a thicker oil What happened to your mate in the EP3 that...
