Re: My daily

Upgraded the ignition system today - Bosch coil pack (same model as on the 1.2 16V) and a custom set of Magnecor Electrosports 80. I'll gap the spark plugs sometime, but for now this is it.
Initial thoughts is that the throttle response seem to be a tad smoother, and generally the engine response has gotten better. No more low speed juddering, warm or cold. It most certainly runs better.

Re: My daily

Did you have any problem fitting the steering wheel or did it bolt straight on ?

Working on the car is calming.. I like using my hands, and do car work - sadly can't do it every day, due to my bad wrists.. So I enjoy the moments I have with working - and driving it

Re: My daily

Just gave the car a wash and fitted my newly refurbed summer wheels today!
Wheels have a clearcoat with rainbow flakes, which is practically impossible to capture on camera - but they look fantastic when the sun hits!

Hi, I like your car. Where did you get the upgraded cam? Are the alfa seats and steering wheel an instant fit?

I didn't buy the cam yet.
Steering wheel is a straight swap - Alfa 156 seats require a bracket to fit.. 147 seats should be a straigt bolt-in.

Re: My daily

Thanks!, Does it fit in the Punto MK1? Or either way, in the Lancia Ypsilon '99 ? I think those 2 might be the same.

And what about the (i dont know the english word) blue wiring that goes to ur sparkplugs, coil? Where did u get it?

Not a clue.. You can look up if aftermarket steering hubs are the same for those cars. Suppose that's the best way to find out.

It's called ignition leads.. They're from Magnecor. But don't just buy them for the colour if you don't need them. For me, it was an upgrade, as I fitted a different coilpack, with other connectors - and Magnecor make custom leads

Re: My daily

So I did a couple power runs tonight, and they came out pretty much identical to the one below. Considering that the car is 11 years old and have soon crossed 150.000km, I'd say it's a decent result!

Mods on this run are:
- GSR induction w/BMC TwinAir filter
- 2" stainless from cat back w/Ragazzon back box

Re: My daily

Finally fitted my new brakes yesterday - found a cheap set of calipers from a 1.9JTD 80 in Germany and had them swapped for a remanufactured set at work - then ordered som HEL brake lines and some DOT5.1 fluid.. Went for EBC Green Stuff as last time. Now I'm more than ready for my next trip to Zandvoort, in just over two months!
