  1. Those Ku39s are not too bad, they're good in the wet, but I did find that the harden up after a while. mine lasted 30K ~ 3.5 years, the last 6 months they were a little slippy.
  2. ...me I just used 5 min epoxy with a bit of talc/q-cel added to thicken it up.
  3. I've had my rb20 valve completely apart, used a dremel to remove the resin and a right angle scribe to get the last of it out of the threads. If you need more preload, then screw the brass plug in a touch more, I didn't have to stretch the spring
  4. There are two temperature sensors, one for the dashboard gauge and one for the computer to operate the fueling tables, so yes it still could be the cause of your issue. O2 sensor Computer Temp sensor and bad/ stuck thermostat. They are your most likely culprits.
  5. Looks like a lot of surface area to lose heat, I would have gone stock manifold and single scroll.
  6. ...subscribed, I've searched rigorously on these boards and still have not found a serious answer
  7. I was looking at these two... http://www.weberperformance.com.au/product_info.php?products_id=1215 http://www.gfb.com.au/products/fuel-management-products/fx-s-fuel-pressure-regulator-detail
  8. Compression and leakdown test, rust and paint, electrical faults. A ticking engine sound may, or may not be hydraulic lifters. The comp test will give you and idea of how much abuse she has likely seen, get her hot and see if she can keep her cool. Why does it need a tow..? cost analysis...
  9. Wouldn't touch a fiat, alfa, chrysler, jeep, with 10 foot pole wearing welders gloves. shit customer service, shit R&D and quality control,
  10. Quality control issues and customer service issues, you can only really notify the company directors, if they are intending to operate their business successfully they will follow-up on your complaint, they need to be informed before they can do anything. A company search and a couple of registered letters with photographs, will put the ball in their court. ...otherwise take your problem to youtube, and social media like Ravi suggested.
  11. Twisting with pliers, works for me, but has the potential to damage the hose. Just bought 25' of Gates barricade through Amazon for 90AUD inc delivery, I was surprised how quickly it came too, only 2 weeks, also surprised to see it had a manufacture date of 2017.
  12. how long is a piece of string... parts, labor, tuning...? sounds like you barely have enough mechanical knowledge or skill to change a flat tyre.
  13. pm me the price to, please
  14. Unless they're mint original, then somewhere south of $500aud ...every time is see gutter rash on lovely forged wheels I cry.
