  1. Good man @Chazz , I believe it was Anthony who got the street port done on yours this time tho.. and an excellent job he did. He can work miracles with those hands

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    Today was eventful! Got up to Shadow just in time to meet the one and only Carl.. aka chazz , who was there to pick up his fantastic example of an 8. Built, ported and gleaming. Man she sounded sweet. Hot start on the button with just 2km on the new block! I also got my brake replaced all round, the brake fluid flushed and refilled with dot 5.1, braided goodridge brake lines front and back fitted, and a new HEL clutch line too. Stopping powaahhh!! Quickest stopper on the block now lol
  3. My only input after catching up is I'm both heartbroken for ya Carl but at the same time relieved that there's no more wasting of your own time. The guys here are spot on tho. A stern phone call back to the builder, and further follow up if no compensation is offered. That's an incredible list of inappropriate and unsuitable parts used. And +1000000 on the porting comment. You won't know her when she's done right

    What Have You Done to Your RX Today?

    Got a few bits myself for Tiffany.. Got the rear discs upgraded with some decent brembo pads, some mt90 for the tranny, new silicone piping for the catch can, and braided brake lines on the way. Lightened Flywheel is next on the list .. the never ending list lol
  6. Glad to hear that buddy.. She's in good hands as I'm sure you've seen. The lads will do everything possible before pointing to a build, so fingers crossed for ya. I'll be in with them over the weekend if you're around??
  7. Intermittent power steering probs is a common fault, it's because the coolant reservoir overflow tube points straight at the power steering connections. Open both connections , clean away the corrosion with a bud and electrical cleaner , add a dab of wd40 and reconnect. Should fix it right up. Another somewhat common fault is the earth on the electrical power steering rack itself, a good earth will fix it. It's most likely one of those. Good hunting anyway
  8. Chazz, i know you've been meticulously looking after the car after the rebuild. And I'm not wishing any bad JuJu here, but get it compression tested. If you have an hr, get it up to eoin and Anthony for a second opinion. For peace of mind if nothing else. Fyi, not to point fingers, but my previous engine crapped itself before 25,000 after a rebuild from someone well known who made a catastrophic error while rebuilding. The lads in Shadow spotted it straight away after opening the block. Again, it's probably electronics, or vacuum issues, but I'd get the compression tested now that you've tried everything. Fingers crossed for you anyway buddy

    It looks to me like you've started off on the right foot here John. Well you may wear As the gang have said above, it's a fantastic community and a great bunch of knowledgeable skins in here. I do the street porting @ shadow rotary since 2014 and the results speak for themselves. So when it comes to the time you decide to get a rebuild, just shout and we'll look after you. FYI, if there's very little damage to the internals of the block when it arrives for a build and port, then your budget should be able to cover both. The list Brady put together covers a good bit of the benefits, but it's only when you drive it yourself will you feel the difference it makes. Here's a vid of how my 8 sounded the day we finished the build and port. And the next vid is from the dyno day we all did earlier this year. I've put 33,000 on her since without skipping a beat.
