    I ended up giving my radiator to a friend who blew his to bits at the last crail drift day, After driving a few hours south to fit it with him I was left with no rad :/ So.. decided it was time to upgrade to an Alloy one with twin fans. Since I dont like to rely on my one OE fan working I had one on a switch.
    Needless to say, Over kill indeed for this 1.8 HOWEVER upon closer inspection, Its been found that cylinder 3 has low compression.

    So, I cant be bothered with another engine or fixing this one as to be honest, I want a Rotary in my life.. so, im just going to do it. Its time I learned how these magical things work.. :p lol Winter project time :D

    Sounds nice with a 13B, but arent you afraid of it shitting itself to pieces?
