Quote from: Call the midlife! on May 3, 2022, 13:20Tidy, I wondered if there was anything from the SMT side of things to determine gear position that was also on the standard gearbox.

Quote from: thetyrant on May 13, 2022, 09:16If not already sorted i can recommend Nordlock washers for the turbo/manifold etc bolts if they keeping coming loose.
Quote from: thetyrant on May 13, 2022, 11:36I can recommend the Lotus elise/exige Powerflex void filler engine mount inserts which fit the Mr2 as well, i ran the rear one on my car helped stabilize engine and sort gearchange issue midcorner due to engine flapping about on stock mounts, i never got around to fitting the front one so if you fancy going that route ive got a new unused front kit in garage just let me know, its this one: https://www.powerflexsuspensionbushes.co.uk/powerflex-front-engine-mount-insert-pff34-603-for-lotus-exige-series-2-90081-p.aspRear mount insert i left in car but this is it: https://www.powerflexsuspensionbushes.co.uk/powerflex-rear-engine-mount-insert-pff34-602-for-lotus-exige-series-2-90080-p.aspMuch easier and more compliant for nvh than solid mounts.If you havent already its worth fabricating a mount to support the turbo from underneath, helps take the strain off manifold and exhaust.

Quote from: m1tch on July 6, 2022, 12:41Car just passed its MOT with no advisories at 180k miles, sports cat fitted as well so happy with the result.This year I plan to get it fully mapped on a dyno and try and get to Santapod more - might still get a chance soon to go again and make sure its not trying to make 200+bhp in 1st gear so I can get off the line!
