Air intake.





That filter is complete garbage though and hits the underside of the nose so I have a straight rather than tapered filter on the way.

Has anyone had any joy shortening an Escort steering rack?

I've got the rack mounted as low as I can but the amount of bump steer it has seems a bit crazy. That's with the wheels at maximum droop (and I've used inch longer shocks than Saturn originally suggested).

Try to put some washers/shims under the rack and/or to move rack further/back.

That'll raise the rack and will further exaggerate the effect. I can't get it any lower.

Does anyone know if a motorcycle fuel tank cap would pass IVA?

Can anyone educate me a little on fuel tank requirements?

I have a tank using an MX5 sender/pump unit. This has a high pressure fuel feed and a return built in. I also have a filler neck.

Now what do I need for vent/rollover? The has an 8mm barb welded onto it but I'm not sure what use this'll be. I also have a rollver over ball valve that's awaiting fitting.

Now would I be right in saying I only need the ball valve to allow for air displacement when filling, air intake when fuel is used and to then stop fuel spillage should I run out of driving ability?

That sounds about right. Mine uses the MX5 pump sender with flow and return pipes. I also use the MX5 filler and my 8mm top pipe connects to an 8mm hose with a non return ball valve the hose then loops down to the bottom of the car rather than finish in the boot area. Passed IVA with that system Oct 2016 and been ok on the road since

Hey guys, I had a little break form the car after a cold winter and a new job but I'm gearing up to get cracking again.

I've just bought a new compressor for this year as I hope to up my game with spraying components and I'd like to paint the car one day.

Has anyone any experience with home HVLP setups?

I have a Graco gun in mind and will use a gun mounted regulator but I'm unsure what kind of wall mounted filter/water trap/regulator to use and will 1.4 fittings flow enough air?

The gun I want to get requires 7cfm of air and the compressor I have outputs over 14cfm.
