  1. Thanks, It's been a cracking show so far & I'm enjoying getting to run my U4 car in front of a crowd at Goodwood, 😂 Looked at the new defender yesterday, Then looked at the jeep wrangler Rubicon that was on display, Looking forward to a nosy through the jeep brochure 😏
  2. They have the off-road activity field which myself & a few others are driving in
  3. steering box as an alternative Some fab work needed to fit it, but on the whole its a better box than anything LR produces
  4. If it's moved a quarter of a turn I'd suspect it's twisted the sector shaft, I'd advise looking at the steering box very closely as if they sheer ( & they are known to after a impact) it drops the droparm out the steering box
  5. my understanding of these is there are actually quite good
  6. why would i want a 20" rim when a 17" rim does the job, however if you go up in size to say a 44" tyre or bigger, than a 20" rim does have its benefits in a similar fashion, i never said changing a low profile tyre was easier, you asked if i had done it so if you could stay consistent that would be grand
  7. Can't work out what cryptic nonsense your on about now, Definitely prefer a 37/1250/17 over a 37/1250/16 as the sidewall flex / movement is less In regards to changing tyres that aren't 85 profile , Yes, quite easily
  8. 35/12.50/18 big enough for you https://www.tyresdirectuk.co.uk/product/radar-renegade-r7-35-12-5r18/ or even a 37" tyre https://www.tyresdirectuk.co.uk/product/discoverer-stt-pro-3713-5r18-124k/
  9. in the grand scheme for the mainstream consumer, is there much need for a tyre larger than 33/34" cant really say i see a need for it given that in reality there will be probably 1-2% of the overall sales which will want a bigger tyre than this, to be fair i agree with @discomikey in relation to choosing a larger wheel to give more sidewall stability over a 15/16" tyre which in the current climate have almost dried up on availability, now in the numbers game, the uk tyre supply / demand pales into insignificance to the USA market
  10. id suspect long enough involved at this tech level to be able to form an opinion based on experience of the aformentioned platforms in harsh environments
  11. in the process of swapping from the LS1 intake to a TBSS intake which gives better lowdown torque & more flow at higher RPM than the LS1 manifold, will be swapping from the EV1 connectors to I think EV6 plugs, might make some patch leads up till I decide what injectors to run with,
  12. as a thought, rather than change injectors to match the plugs, why not change the plugs to match your existing injectors? did this with my LS when I fitted my car intake & injectors, changing manifold & injectors soon & i'm intending on just replacing the 8 injector plugs on the loom
  13. Don't bring material specs & knowledge into this rose tinted bun fight 😂😂😂
  14. quoted from the IVA manual " Vehicles fitted with complex drive by wire or hydraulic steering systems cannot be assessed by inspection, therefore documentary evidence must be provided " other than that " If the vehicle is fitted with power assisted steering, the steering must still operate with the assistance disabled " "When the vehicle is driven at speeds above 10mph, there must be a degree of steering “self centring” evident" which my full hydro does
  15. engine will run without injector coding, otherwise is a relatively straight swap ,
  16. yup, no drive with a broken input shaft
  17. if im understanding you correctly, if you do a timing belt in the future the pump will then be miss timed & you will have to go through this hassle over again,
  18. no different to defenders you see with all sorts of Tat stuck to them
  19. i made my own exhaust for my Ls powered Jeep using off the shelf bends / v bands / silencers, one bank was dead easy as it consited of a couple of 45 deg bends & a silencer, the other was a little more awkward due to having to route round the centre bearing for the front prop, overall no the hardest job n the world, just takes time to make it look nice
  20. ACE pump doesnt have a clutch, its a hydraulic pump that is driven full time by the engine, id suspect your thinking of the aircon pump in response to @egami the pump should turn with some resistence as it is pumping hydraulic fluid through the system
  21. i think you mean they gonna escape right of the end of the axle casing 🤣🤣🤣🤣
