I followed these two into the show (sorry I don't know the owners names), and was hoping to have a chat but sadly my pass didn't let me park anywhere near and by the time I found them there was no one around. Then I came back later and they had obviously got fed up with all the Astras and Corsas and gone home. 

Omega General Help / V6 Exhaust manifolds
« on: 19 May 2019, 22:12:55 »
Years ago I made these for a Vectra challenge car that was running on LPG as a marketing exercise for alternative fuels. The engine had also been built by Swindon Race Engines, but apparently the manifolds contributed an extra 20 bhp.  Also it gave the car a very distinctive howling engine note, which was particularly popular with fans and sponsors Calor. Now I'm thinking about making some inline versions for my newly acquired MV6. I would obviously have to fit some cats in the link pipes, and it looks as though all 4 lambda bosses could be moved to a suitable position either side of the cats to still give a worthwhile output to the ECU and avoid the dreaded EML warning. It looks as though there is plenty of room for each 3-1 to be fitted without having to resort to a slip on collector as pictured, which we wouldn't get away with cats fitted anyway because of potential leakage. This would only be a personal exercise because it would be far too time consuming to be commercially viable.
Probably just a pipe dream (ha, ha) but it's fun to imagine how it could sound, and the extra torque that it might generate.

Omega Electrical and Audio Help / Multi CD player
« on: 03 April 2019, 18:23:22 »
On the MV6 I have just bought has a Siemens NCDC 2013 fitted, which appears to need a cartridge to load CDs into the big slot in  the front.  In the service records there is mention of this cartridge not ejecting properly and it was recommended not to use it so it doesn't get jammed. There doesn't seem to be a multi CD cartridge in there, so I am wondering if it is possible to load a CD without this cartridge or if I got one (from somewhere?) can it be fixed so it doesn't jam, or is it a known fault. I also wonder how difficult it is to connect an MP3 player or similar to this sort of unit? without going to a new aftermarket stereo, which I'd rather not have to do, because I'd like to keep the dash all looking original. Thanks.

Hello, i am looking forward to finding out more from you Omega chaps, having spent a long time as an Autobahnstormer and having been involved with Lotus Carltons since building and racing one in the late 1990s.  I have now finally graduated to an Omega B, having just purchased what i hope is a nicely looked after MV6 3.2 auto.  I'll post up some images once I pick it up this week.
