    Engine & Drivetrain
    About 2 weeks ago my r53 started to feel really sluggish at WOT. I checked the codes and I have a P0108 for high pressure in the intake manifold and a P0420 code for the catalytic converter. The previous owner had the catalytic converter replaced by the dealership when I bought the car at...

    Faults & Fixes
    So my power steering pump failed on my facelift 2005 R50, which is obviously less than 10 years, which I'm led to believe is their goodwill gesture limit regarding replacing parts. I can't remember off the top of my head as it was over a year ago but the bill was £600 give or take £100. After...

  12. Larger injectors for the R50 now available !

    Engine & Drivetrain
    For all those of you who spend time and money for your N/A R50, i have good news. The stock R50 injectors are very small, at 178cc/[email protected] bar (Bosch part number 0280155991). Anything more than a full exhaust system and intake, like a camshaft, will take them to 100% duty cycle at high rpm if...
