I found the problem. a "smartass" hadn't connected some wiring to the fusebox properly #-o

only left now is to figure out why my headlamps don't work.

195/50/15 on a 6 or 6.5 inch wide wheel or
195/45/16 or 205/40/16 on a 6.5 inch wide are common fitments

GTP

195/45/15 on 6" or 6.5". Almost same diameter as standard.

Or for the old racer look some 205/60/13's (although not all rims clear the calipers). I have one set on 5.5's but would be better on up to 7's.

I'll think 195/45 15 (Good Year) is what I'm going for.

I've been looking at the white OZ superturismo WRC, 6,5" x 15" with a backspacing between 40-44 mm.

I run 195/50/15 yokohama advan 050s on a 6.5" rim and they fit perfectly. I also run Toyo r888 205/60/13 on 6" rim and is well within fitment range. I also have yokohama 032s in 185/60/14 on 6" rim for the street, the first two for racing.

here in Norway almost all cars older than 15 years are beginning to look like this. because of the snow in the winter they use tons of salt to keep roads snow free, but it eats up the cars :evil:

if you want a car here, you need skills to weld rust.

I think it's time to get a new clutch before it's to late. I want something that is more firm that the original, but not a on/off clutch either. do you have any suggestions?

The extractor does not always fit. I thought there was a problem with the lower bend of the extractor. The angle isn't right and the extractor hasn't the correct length at the bottom end.

The standard air intake of the swift gti is that good that any "improvements" with POD style air intakes add nothing to performance and sometimes even make it worse.

damn it #-o
I'm gonna buy a K&N filter to replace the standard.

I've ordered new cams from Suprf1y, 200/335 intake cam and 210/340 exhaust cam.
the Sandro chip is on it's way.
and a fiberglass midwing is ordered.

I also need a 50mm TB, chlutch and extractors :mrgreen:

I can recommend the Daiken/Exedy Heady duty clutch, clutch cover has 30% (?) more clamping pressure, standard organic clutch plate so it is still a little forgiving on the drive line and they are really well priced.
