Re: EPIC FAIL.

I've done over 900 miles over 3 days while attending JAE on several occasions, did nothing special to the car before setting off and only had to put fuel in it while on the trip.
Would have no concerns about doing the same tomorrow. :cool1:

Re: Fitting an oil gauge sender to a 2GR-FE

Alternatively, you could just say that the mk1 was more of an pureist / enthusiast car, and the mk2 is just a dumbed down copy designed to have a broader, mass market appeal at the expense of the true petrolhead :th: Coffee - -> monitor :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: However inthe interests of harmony...

Re: Fitting an oil gauge sender to a 2GR-FE

Interesting speculation, I wonder why Mr T dropped the oil pressure gauge from the MK2 when the MK1 came with a gauge (but no oil pressure light) as standard. Also interesting is that the MK1 gauge has an arbitrary scale from L to H and no indication as to whether its in PSI or BAR

2GRs have a lot of sensors on them - it's a lot more modern than a 3S :)
Still doesn't have an oil pressure sensor, only a pressure switch ;)

Re: classic car

it all depends on your definition of a "Classic" there's as many definitions as there are opinions and none are "official" ;)

For an unmodified engine, I agree that an oil pressure gauge is a little bit of overkill.
Not at all, oil pressure gauges used to be pretty standard on sports cars, both my MG's, my X1-9 had one as standard, IIRC the Silvia turbo had one and of course the MK1 has one :p

Re: Flange bolts

Are you sure they are M10 & M12? seems pretty big especially with a fine 1.25 pitch. M10 is normally 1.5 and M12 is 1.75.
