At least we have Marzipan to entertain us!

I'll just leave this here.  ;D

'Time since last spin'  :D

I have to say, based on his previous antics, I expected more from Hazaspin. Still there is plenty of time to go.

Factories have slowed down or shut. People are at home, not going out and not having anything to buy. Some of those people will hit PC gaming hard. Hence it's driven the demand up. Add to that people working from home, thus buying more kit and you can see why some stuff is out of stock.

I will say, I've order 2 x 4 lots of PC's in the last 3 weeks and haven't struggled for components.

If you are interested, try www.scan.co.uk

GPU's are high in demand for several reasons. Gaming, crypto and of course, the latest buzzword, AI.

It's long been known that if you have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled on your phone, it's been used to track you around shops/shopping centres. This has been going on for years. Why do you think they now offer you 'smart shopping' (Handheld scanner to scan the stuff you put in your bags)? It's so they have a better way to track you around the store.

One thing to remember when dealing with companies like Facebook, if they offer no discernable product/service, then you are the product. They offer you free usage of their systems in return for a profile they have about you.

Is it just me that unplugs the grinder and uses the disc as leverage to undo/do up the nut?

I didn't think electrical components were guaranteed? I seem to remember a lot of places won't take back an electrical part. They claim you've swapped the part/fitted it incorrectly/damaged it/faulty wiring and will wriggle out of swapping it.

So good luck!

Levis never made jeans in even sizes. 29, 31 waists & buy them a size big as they always shrank.

 ??? Are you sure? The last Levi's I bought were even sizes. I'm pretty certain they are genuine, as I bought them from the Levi store on the outskirts of LA.

God alone knows why ;D The 3.2 even has a forged crank.

Was it cheaper than a genuine one?  ::) (Yes I'm joking)

If it's a manual, remember to check around the gearbox too. As the clutch is feed from the same pot, granted slightly higher up (so if the clutch dumps all the fluid, the brakes still work.)

If the pads are ready to be changed, don't fill up the reservoir as it will mean you'll need to take some fluid out once the pads are done. If the pads need doing, just put enough fluid in to be over the min line.

Of course Amazon and Crapple would never stoop that low ;D

They licensed the tech to Google :D

For Home and Play I've been using UC Browser which, wait for it, is basically a China release of Chrome, but without all the Google Spying and the need for Google Sign in,s. Been using it for donkeys years and never had any issues.

So they've replaced the Google spying with Chinese spying?

My Grandfather was responsible for the downing of over thirty German aircraft during WW2, and still to this day, the Luftwaffe consider him the worst mechanic they'd ever had.

The preference was always 3.2 block on 2.6/late 2.5 ported heads, 3.0 engine management setup, 2.6/3.2 exhaust manifolds, 2.5/3.0 front pipes/cats (with the tops trimmed to fit the later manifolds) plus 3.0 inlet setup.

The 2.6/3.2 suffers due to lower compression and a compromised engine management setup (far to emissions biased which impacted the economy), hence picking the best bits from all to restore the compression ratio and get best all round operation.

Thank you. I thought the 2.6/3.2 was hobbled by emissions.

13
Both the 2.6 and 3.2 produce more power and torque than the 2.5/3.0 respectively, so that logic doesn't hold any water ;)
In which case I stand corrected. I thought the preference here was the 3.0?

14
The 3.2 also comes with more emissions stuff, so I don't think the difference is that much. Granted if you fitted the 3.2 with all the 3.0 accessories, it would be better. Although I suspect there will be other challenges.
Like what?

No EGR or SAI for a start ::) two extra cats, but they aren't exactly restrictive. No idle control valve either, that's set by the ecu which can make the idle on the 2.6/3.2 seem lumpy.

All in all that adds up to LESS emissions nonsense, not more ;)

The ManiCATS have got to be a form of restriction or they wouldn't work as a Catalyst. There is also the COPs -v- coil pack, granted not much of an issue, but I seem to remember there was other differences in the engine, albeit minor.

Are you bored, Skruntie?  ::)

If so.....post some knockers.
I've tried it already, I couldn't get them through the letterbox.
