      Cool. Weird that it's definitely got the speed improvement, then.

      BTW...if you want to replace your holy chrome bumper...I've got one going cheap

          I'm seriously tempted to do this with mine. Whereabouts in County Durham are you? If you were OK with it I'd love to have a look some time to gauge just how much work the conversion takes.

            got my lump in october.
            only got as far as striping the engine and tarting it up a bit so far.
            oh,and the endless amounts of new parts,gaskets ,o-rings,etc.
            christ,they all add up,don't they.

                  its working and driving as a manual but Ive got no 2nd gear (had to unplug solenoids), its either a dodgy electrical issue somewhere or one of the solenoids isnt working

                  when the solenoids are plugged in it only stays in first gear or it will occasional change but then go back to 1st

                  also I think its safe to say my neighbors hate me for waking them up at 6am with v8 rumbleness when I go to work

                  also its getting 6mpg

                    Always thought that neighbours are only there to be woken up and annoyed by V8's, lol.
                    6 to the gallon sounds great, fit a bigger fuel tank, problem solved!

                    • 3rd generation got the fuel tank opposite side as the second generation, might can be done something to increase the range.

                      • these low mpg figures are baffling to me.
                        does look sweet,though.

                        • 6mpg!!!! Jesus.

                          • ok so my reverse lights arnt working which could be the problem to my gear shifting woes, where should I start

                            where does the original reverse signal come from and does it go through the ecu?

                            • he only time I wish I had front torsion bars instead of coil struts!

                              Loads more room!!
                              More Lift.
                              More Tyres.
                              More Engine.
