    Radiator stop leak

    I don't usually think this when reading threads on lr4x4, but this time I will say there's a lot of people riding around on high horses and giving naff advice. In my experience K-seal doesn't clog. Unless your chucking it into some knackered old hack to start with. I had a leaky core plug I couldnt get round to sorting for a bit. K-seal fixed the leak, rad still clear afterwards. I even know the water ways etc in the engine were good and clear afterwards as when I did my chassis swap I finally got round to pulling all the core plugs and replacing them while it was easy. Stay away from the other goo-like ones and you'll be fine. (I have no affiliation with K-seal, just a happy customer)

    K-seal is good, it doesn't fill your cooling system with goo like rad weld does. It's strange stuff, like a thin liquid with copper coloured flecks in it...

    Gold box on an LQ4 v8

    If you want to use genuine Bosch I'd look at picking up a couple of used sets of volvo/Saab/anything boosted injectors off ebay and getting them refurbed. You'd need to research and find some with suitable flow rate, but they should be in the right ballpark. Just check that they have the right notches at the top for the clips that retain them into the fuel rail, some ev6 Injectors don't have them.

    Downpipe studs

    Drill them out and helicoil is an option. I did this on the manifolds on my 90. You'd have to track down some Imperial helicoils with the correct thread for the standard series studs or go metric and move to m8 threaded studs used in more recent LR products

    Poor Spark - EDIS 8 in Default Mode

    MS3 overall external wiring schematic is at page 17 of 222 here: http://www.msextra.com/doc/pdf/html/MS3baseV30_Hardware-1.5.pdf/MS3baseV30_Hardware-1.5.html EDIS specific details are on page 126, as said above it will be as easy to wire as MJ. Manual states that the "IGN" (pin 36) on the DB37 goes to the EDIS SAW connection, and pin 24 of the DB37 connects to the PIP line.

    4.0 GEMS engine swap

    Progress is progress, and you should take the positive from that! I think we have all had days where we planned to do something but had to revert to using the time on different stuff instead for whatever reason. I feel your pain with the gearbox crossmember installation, I had the same on mine- it's not the most pleasant experience! Keep chipping away, it'll be great when done!

    I use Tunerstudio too, by far the best tool I also have MsDroid on my phone (which the screenshots were from) which is pretty handy for when I don't have my laptop with me.

    Are you using regular MS2 or MS2/Extra? I don't think I have come across that particular correction curve.... As for startup, both mine start and continue to run without dying, settings as below. They are both 3.5's so may differ slightly, but hopefully not too much as MS2 uses %'s of fuel rather than absolute pw values. Note that my ASE curve looks a bit weird as it has a kink in it from where I haven't tuned it below ~20 degrees...

    Rob, Just having upgraded the MS in my 90 to MS2 last week I am revisiting some of the tune settings. This evening I noticed fluctuations in AFR myself (a little lean) whilst sat in traffic. I've just looked again and the setting I used on the P6 to iron this out was the "MAT/CLT correction" curve.

    Rob, if you are using ms1 then this might help- it did on mine: http://www.mez.co.uk/ms15-new.html If it's MS2 then Google "coolant corrected air density" this helped massively on my other one.
  11. When fitting efi to my P6 I used a cylindrical facet (which the factory fitted one off my 90) a small swirl pot from obp, and an in-line pump followed by an efi filter. This is a lot cheaper than the nice internally pumped swirl pots that fridge mentions but is a heck of a lot more plumbing (looks messy) and general stuff to find a home for!

    Congrats on the MOT! Very well done!

    200Tdi Overheating when raining

    Yeah, agree that mine is definitely an earth issue. If/when other things stop breaking/falling off etc I *might* get round to looking at it... 😂

    200Tdi Overheating when raining

    My 90 does exactly this, often (but not always) when I turn the heater on the temp gauge will go to the red. To check the temp I have to turn off the heater momentarily 😂
