    I doubted @MajesticBlueNTO once...

    Then he created a machine, took me back into time, and convinced me otherwise...

    Has anyone had coilovers rebuilt? Pulling mine off this weekend (fronts done yesterday) because one of the fronts damping adjustment never tightens (probably failed seal or something) and one rear has a seized damper adjustment.

    I'm located beside Brampton, so found DropTec on a few forums.

    Other suggestions or things I should ask about when having rebuilt?

    Hey Gents (and any random lady Speed drivers),

    Back from the land of the lost and a long tuning hiatus. I read back a few pages and have seen a few of the OG's have moved on to new platforms and the like, but some of the faithful still remain and many a new face are here.

    Looking to finish some overdue upgrades, do some maintenance and re-tune so hoping a few of you can PM me and we'll go from there. Looking at @Mr Wilson, @Fobio, @loki, @MajesticBlueNTO and @boyracer.

    Hope to hear from you guys.

    Take care,

    J
    Nice guys finish last.......that's why I drive an MS3!

    Different platforms. I blew my engine about a year ago. I do miss that speed.

    So I'm at 142km and my car smokes after extended idle (10 min or more).

    I assume this means the k04 is on it's way out. Anything I can do at this point or just budget to upgrade/replace?

    Car is dead stock other than short ram. Not against modifying if I have to replace stuff but I don't have any huge power goals. I hear the reliable/fun ration gets out of wack after 300whp?

    Like I said, corksport intake and corksport inlet pipe will likely solve that issue.

    eh? really? Something doesn't sound right to me about that.

    If bearings are going, it's time to replace the turbo...everything else is just a short term patch on broken hardware. I'd rather replace the turbo before the bearings go and you get metal chunks flying into your engine.

    No different than the smoking turbo fix a lot of dealers do which is to swap out the turbo inlet pipe. But I think they also swapped out my engine cover

    Yeah I seem to remember a variety of other alternatives. A CS intake and inlet pipe is something I could use later anyway if I do upgrade things too right?

    The car currently drives fine.

    If I were to replace the turbo, are the BNR units worth the expense?

    Depends which BNR you go with. S1 is just like k04 but built better. S3/S4 is where the higher hp numbers start to come in. CS turbo is similar to S3. You can run the CS turbo (and possibly the S3) on a stock car aside from tune and HPFP, although most people have a few more bolt ons when going that route.

    I'd go S3. Guess that is important to mention. @ricola I actually don't want a FMIC. I'd prefer to keep things lower key.
