Re: WTB: 4B12 exhaust manifold

I'll also have my 4-1's for sale once (if...) I can get a 4B12 manifold, so it might end being a 4 way thing! I might have a lead on a 4B12 manifold that isn't as much as the $125 quote I got today, I'll let you know tomorrow how that works out. I think you were lucky to get one for $28! I think mos...

Re: WTB: 4B12 exhaust manifold

A 4B12 manifold from Eddy Wreckers is $125, as I said they can be expensive! If anyone has one I'm willing to pay for postage as long as the price is reasonable. Make me an offer! If in Adelaide I will be willing to drive and pick it up. Seeing as they're $28 when taking it off yourself I think $125...

Re: WTB: 4B12 exhaust manifold

Well, seems no luck on existing 4B12 members willing to depart with their manifold! I'll check with Eddy Wreckers tomorrow. I'm not overly hopeful in terms of price! It's been a long time since I went to them for a part though, they used to have a store on at 869 South Rd, Clarence Gardens (found it...

Re: What engine oil do YOU use?

I know that Nulon and some other oil companies, may be all? recommend 5w30 oil for my my15 lancer ES 4B11 engine and realise that thinner oil gives you better economy. I prefer to run with Nulon 1o-40 full synthetic and have used it since it became available and have used it ever since. When your o...

Re: What engine oil do YOU use?

Penrite HPR 5 5W-40 fully synthetic. That's what the garage uses, which is good as it would be what I'd use anyway. The oil recommendation selector for most oils say 0W, but I think that's too thin.

Re: WTB: 4B12 exhaust manifold

Yeah I saw that! I found at times they can be super expensive. I'll give them a try in a couple of weeks when I've given up hope elsewhere :).

@Mooman
Thanks, that would be great!

Re: WHINING NOISE FROM ENGINE

Could be a bearing in the alternator or one of the pulleys.

WTB: 4B12 exhaust manifold

After reading the forum post of putting a 4B12 manifold on the 4B11 engine that has the 4-1 street extractors, I would like to do the same myself. http://clubcj.net/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=21732 I too currently have 4-1 street extractors with a 2.0 L CVT, and am keen to try the 4B12 2.4 L exhaust m...

Re: summers coming up.

Under 80 kph is more efficient with windows down, air con off. Over 80 kph, windows up and fan, and even air con on it's better than windows down on the highway due to aerodynamic drag.

Air con efficiency is a big thing. Not sure if insulating the cold return pipes helps or not.

Re: New DRL headlights, need help ASAP

They were looking at making it compulsory to have the lights on during the day, at least for rural highway driving. Although it's not law, it's not a bad idea especially with darker colours or those that blend in with the countryside or sky. I doubt you got fined for driving with your foglights on, ...

Little scrapes and bumps happen though, particularly on a bumper.

Re: Paint damage while reversing out of driveway

More along the lines of what I thought it would be. TBH it's not worth it, better to fix it yourself. At least that way you already have the stuff for the next mark or scuff. What does $350 get you? 1. A K&N air filter, RA snorkel, header and pipe wrapped 2. 3/4 of a 4-2-1 extractor, or a 4-1 st...
