    So found myself a 2001 mk2.5 S-VT. wanted to give this model a go as it comes standard with a Torsen diff, 6 speed gearbox, large brakes, nardi steering wheel. Found myself a bit of a steel (i think anyway) £1400.00 for the car. its covered a very moderate 56k from new, comes with a hard...

    Hi I'm fairly new to 5 ownership, I picked up a 99 1.8 mk2 in November last year as a weekend toy. Not done many miles in it and the bottom end has gone :mellow: So I've managed to get a mk2.5 bottom end as I've been advised its much stronger and I'm looking at doing the swap myself (well with...

    Hello, I'm yet again in need of the help of the the Nutz collective. As the title says, I'm fitting a 1.8vvt engine into a mk2 1.8. I've done some reading and it appears the cam sensor is an issue and may need wiring extended? I am aware I've got swap the injector rail as the VVT has no return...

    Right I need the help and advice of Nutz again. My mate has a 1.8 NB with a screwed engine (piston slap, cracks in piston liner) and I'd trying to get him up and running again ASAP. Partially because he keeps nicking my 5! I'm looking around for a mk2 engine and struggling. What other choices do...
  7. Forced Induction & N/A Power Mods
    So my engine cut out after a good drive and I foolishly dumped the clutch to try to jump it back to life. Net effect: seized engine. Oh joy. Advice on options would be welcomed - anything from the cheapest through to the most thorough. I have a Mk1 1.8 ('96 plate) and I recently dropped a 6spd...
  8. Forced Induction & N/A Power Mods
    I'm getting bits ready to build up a replacement engine and eventually turbo charge it. So I'm looking to get a replacement 1.8. I'm currently in a Mk2 1.8, if I plan on using a PNP megasquirt, would it still be mostly plug and play in to the MK2 harness, or would I still need a MK2.5 harness...
  9. Problems
    Hi all. Want to try and fix a misfire on my lovely 1.8. I need your help please. I'd like to come up with a comprehensive list of the known causes so I can price them and start with the lowest cost first and work my way up learning car maintenance on my way too. The previous owner had fitted...

    As my head gasket has blown I'm looking into what's involved in putting a mk2.5 VVT engine into a 1999 car. Both are 1.8 engines. This is how I understand it so far: - The 99 ECU loom, intake manifold & exhaust manifold etc will all be useable with the VVT engine - The 99 fuel rail will be kept...
  11. Problems
    In the last week, my 79k 1.8 Eunos has developed an issue where it's hesitant to start first-time from cold, like the starter motor is weakening, it (and my other 5, which has never failed to start) normally has the typical strong MX5 thrum when started, but this one sort of stutters and coughs...
