  1. When reading oil pressure on Vida you get "yes" or "no". It will just tell you what the light shows as the engine only has an on off switch. You can read oil level.
  2. Check the rec valve and oil filter housing.
  3. Ah thanks, I fully understood you. You will need an engine shortly if you carry on driving it with that oil. I had 13 93.2mm cranks the same as yours damaged last year due to piss thin oil. None of the cars were on track and most were just being driven normally. Not wanting to alarm you but I've had two that didn't make it back from the garages that did the oil changes to xW30. I'm sure you'll be fine though as it's always something that happens to others...
  4. I've now got cranks in stock so I can do you an exchange engine supplied and fitted for £1900 but not until September. If you cannot wait or don't want the unnecessary cost then using suitable oil will negate the need for an engine.
  5. There are too many user variables to be conclusive, firstly have you changed the oil? If reved over 5500RPM repeatedly and the oil temps rise then that's a very low level of usage.
  6. Some people are like clouds, when they disappear it's a beautiful day.
  7. He's quiet if he's got a mouth full.
  8. I could of hit the limiter but only in 3rd as 4th would of been about 135MHP.
  9. I think you need to check it correctly as I'm sure you're wrong and it's not boosting to 44 PSI.
  10. 2
  11. Polish it harder and it will turn silver. That's just the right amount.
  12. I'm all loaded, car's washed, compounded, polished and waxed.
  13. lol, now did I tighten up all your suspension bolts...
  14. I won't buy you lunch but I'll try and bake a cake. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make-an-upsidedown-cake-with-almost-any-fruit-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-192070 I hope all goes well.
  15. If you remove the intercooler to ETM pipe you can easily get at the starter terminals. Also check the earth lead on the front of the gearbox. The ABS related problems can be down to you driving with a fucking flat tire as the rolling radius would be less.
