I bought a cheap car cover for it as in the beginning of June this will be going into storage and I will be picking up my summer car, so I am hoping to have the inter-cooler and a few other things finished before then.

If not things will resume in October.

Most mistakes have consequences. Some more severe than others. This mistake in particular cost me 20 bucks. Hardly anyone stocks a power steering bottle, the bottle on photo will work with some minor modifying. I Mcguyver my own




Abottle by melting plastic onto it. However its still leaky cheeky.

Any one else wondering about the 12$ spark plugs
Got them from Rockauto

https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...park+plug,7212

I got the Autolite XP5701

currently there is a mail in rebate for 3$ off, plus if you use a coupon code at checkout you get 5% off the price

there are 2 other cheaper ones but they are out of stock.

add coupon code 107403719101734119 into the 'how did you hear about us'

Last edited by kevin2m4; 05-11-2019 at 11:33 AM. Reason: added coupon code

[QUOTE=kevin2m4;16424777]Hey Bandit, did you rest the power steering bottle on the drive belt?[/QUOTE

Yup, sure did. It happen last sunday drove home with the bottle out of its bracket, i phoned several places during the week no 1 had it in stock, not even the stealership. Btw: no aftermarket replacement for it either. Anyway picked up a reservoir @ ahon in toronto for 20 bucks inlet n outlet matched. however the reservoir did not line up with the existing metal bracket, again my Mcguyver...lol.. skills made it work by relocation the bracket and zip tying the bottle to the bracket.
