Hermes delivered my new number plates yesterday, without drama or damage :)
They delivered mine last year but one of them was printed upside down.
Turn it the other way up before fitting  :y
Hardly Hermes Fault  ;D
I did actually try that Dave, Im not stupid, but then the other one was upside down.  ;D

Omega General Help / Re: Chip Tuning 2.6 V6 (Petrol)
« on: 15 May 2019, 16:03:33 »
Someone could make me a remap for my 2.6 with the 3.0 map?
Why, theres no point and too little gains to be had.

The way to go is 3.0 Engine all day long, Ive played around with getting the most out of these lumps for a long time now, the 3.0 has far the best Power vs Fuel Ecomomy of all the V6's, Re Chipping it will give better MPG when driven normally in the right and lower Torque Range but wont do much on its own for increased performance.

The very best you can get from these 3.0 is to Re Chip them (preferably with the Courtenay ReMap Chip over the SuperChips one)  fit Widened Throttle Bodies gas flow then and Port to the Penlium intake, Gas flow and Port the Inlet Manifold the Heads, if the Heads are coming off Port the Inlet on the Heads to the Valves, do the same to the Exhaust side of the Heads, Change the Down Pipes (Exhaust Manifold), fit K&N Air Filter or similar (without the Oil) and retain the Cold Feed setup, Fit a less restrictive SS Exhaust System, doesn't need to be too loud either, a nice deep thumping over the over the Boy Racer Rasp sounds ok on the V6's. And thats pretty much it for standard Aspiration.

If you really get bored fit 4 x G Cams with the above, gives a very slight more aggression at the top end of the Revs.

In the UK, If your running LPG you could loose the Cats (Present the Car on LPG to the MOT Tester and good luck with that one) but it really does sound horrible far too noisy.

Last but not least an LSD will help delivering the power to the tarmac, if your that way inclined, and If your running Manual Box you could swap out your 3.7 for a 3.9 Diff from an Auto box setup for tad more acceleration benefit but your lose out on MPG, and trust me the extra Rev's will drive you round the bend when cruising at speed on the Motorway.

You could potentially do most of the above with the 3.2, but its never going to be as Economical and you really are in the hands of the Gods when comes to the ReMapping.

It's the same as road wars but with space ships.
Nah, the Actors and Acting is better on Road Wars.

The guy is a Dick, always been Dick, Ive met Him a few times and had a few Beers with Him when he was on the LWT 6 O'clock show back in the 80s,

He's one of those who are all very good at a laugh and a joke and dishing it out but He certainly cant take it when His on the receiving end.

Wouldn't worry as when you have the spoiler fixed the aerial will smash against the spoiler and scratch it/ damage the aerial base.

There was a little metal bit that went in the aerial base on the estate that changed the angle of the whip so it didn't hit, but these corrode in and when you change the whip it gets stuck and you end up damaging the base, so change to a stub aerial first would be my advice
Dont fit the extra metal angle piece on the Aerial Base if you have a Phillips or NCDC Factory Phone Kit fitted with the HU.  ;)


There's 2... Do you mean the factory ball joint affair, or the Imesher angled block.
Almost certainly the Ball Joint one, but I cant remember what the Irmy one looks like (picture anyone?) but guessing it will add additional spacing between the whip and Base then its a no no.

Windows Defender 247 (win10) and the Free version of Malwarebytes once a week / month is all you need these days, both free.  ;)

Reading between the lines, I am guessing you aren't a fan........

No,       .......Oh I did I mention there fukcing useless  >:(.

Maybe its just me then or my Area, never seen the Hermes Delivery Man (or Woman), never seen a Card left by them, never seen a Van, never heard any Door Bells Ring when Ive supposedly not been in to accept there Delivery, never actually Signed anything that I haven't received despite the Seller saying its been delivered and Signed for.

Their on my Bucket List of Places to Burn Down and People to shoot before I leave this Planet, as far as I concerned there fukcing useless.

Actually, having said all that, I did find a Boxed Nokia Charger in the Front Garden when trimming the hedges one day, dated about 9 months earlier, not one of mine, never Ordered it, but it did come in handy.  ::)

They are just useless, pathetic excuse for trying to be a Courier Company, Ive had more trouble as a Receiver expecting stuff to arrive in the last 12 months than all of the Others in my Lifetime, sick to death of them, oh, did I say they were Useless.

From an eBay point of view I always ask the question now with the Seller, Please dont send via Hermes, I would rather pay a few quid more and get it sent by A N Other, but the usual thing I get back is " Oh Ive never had any problems sending stuff with Hermes, there wonderful", yea right, Try receiving stuff, Oh and did I say they are Useless.

I know the eurosceptics will say the current PM, but likely based on a blinkered hell-bent must-leave-at-all-costs view.  As much as I dislike her, I don't think anyone could have done significantly better, and certainly no current UK politician.

But Brown wins my vote - I know his hands were tied by the likes of the Rothschild family, but as chancellor and PM, he right royally screw us all.
I was in a Little Chef having Brealfast when He was chancellor, the one on the A?? something from the the M1 into Dunstable, the place was empty except a Chap and his Kids, yes it was Brown taking the Nippers out for a cheap meal.

After He left, I had to ask the Waiter the Question, Did He leave a Tip?, No was the reply, Tight Git.  ;D

General Car Chat / Re: Making an insurance claim
« on: 04 May 2019, 15:38:20 »
Yeah, I figured as much which is why I didn't claim. It would cost me more than 2.5k in the next 5 years!

Was it an Omega that was stolen?
No it was a Corsa, disappeared New Years Eve, so took me a few days to work out it was missing.

Having said that, I had Omega's stolen in the past, both Ex Plod, one went missing from Private Land only a few days someone came to view and was keen to buy but decided not to and said he would get back to me  :-\ the other was taken from a locked Garage, both were a few years back when V6 Cats were worth a few bob then, having said that working LSD's would also fetch very good money in the right Market.  >:( :-\
