      The biggest hurdle with such a conversion is all the electronic and electrical stuff. All the following rely on data from the original PCM over CAN bus, and will be non-functional without:

      I see no mention of Eddie Jordan. That's a good thing. :thumbup:

      With him, I think last season was too much of a case of "Hey everybody! Look, it's your favourite eccentric Irish uncle - you know,...

      Hahaha, what a load of bollocks. :laugh: Of course it will affect production! I went on a factory tour at one of the Jaguar plants in the midlands a few years ago where we were told that JLR operate...

      Well, it's common sense that lack of autonomous braking obviously doesn't make a car 'unsafe' per se, but it's just that EuroNCAP have obviously decided that having such features merits additional...

      Seems to me from reading the page on the EuroNCAP website linked above, that by-and-large it did pretty good, but was sub-par only for rear seat passengers, and it also lost out on points for things...

      Yeah, so much stuff is screwed up with the page layout right now. :laugh:

      Also, where did the account setting for altering the font size go? The first thing I noticed was that all the text was...

      I'm surprised they say that it will completely remove the need for a throttle body. Don't BMW's that use Valvetronic always have a back-up throttle body?

      Yup. I know someone who bought a Mazda RX-8 that had an RX-7 turbo motor swap, along with all sorts of upgrades, custom paint, etc. It was a magazine-featured car, displayed at a number of shows,...

      Ha, I remember these! When I was a kid, a schoolfriend's neighbour had one. All white, with the black 'RANGER' vinyl graphics along the side.

      The very fact the software developers called it 'cheese factor', complete with comic-style pizza slice icons, shows they at least have a sense of humour. :) I suspect there was a lot of eye-rolling...

      The number from the battery you looked up may not have been a part number, but a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) classification type. If it looked something like the format 75D23L - i.e. two...

      Original factory Panasonic battery in my RX-8 lasted 7 years. :thumbup:

      The 'premium' Exide I replaced it with is on it's way out now after only 4 years. :thumbdown:

      It's not a sales tax, but a vehicle operating tax (people generally refer to it as 'road tax', but it actually has little to do with funding road infrastructure). Think of it as more of an annual...

      Don't forget to factor into your 3,000 budget the road tax for your chosen car, and the likelihood that you'll need to put it through an annual inspection test at least once if you're going to own...

      Yes, very much this. Only a rotary specialist (or a well-equipped enthusiast) will be able to do a compression test properly. It requires a specialised electronic rotary compression testing tool. It...

      No, they are stiffer than the Series 1 RX-8s. They have the Bilstein suspension that the 40th Anniversary models had.

      Be aware if looking to use an R3 for daily use is that the cloth Recaros don't...

      No, there is a grille. You just can't see it very well in that pic. Here's a closer view:

      A lot of these examples don't look so awkward when there's a license plate mounted.

      I think a lot of manufacturers actually design so it looks best when there's a front plate. But, seeing as the...

      I just searched on LeakedSource for my username, e-mail and even IP address, and it turned up absolutely nothing. :sly: :confused:
