General Car Chat / Camshaft swap
« on: 08 August 2017, 20:55:16 »
I found an interesting picture of a C18XE
 It seems to have 2 exhaust cams, Im sure that the X20XER had the same

Is this what gives the extra power like the g cams in a 2.5?
Obviously with the egr capped off

Omega General Help / Waterproofing PNP switch
« on: 28 July 2017, 14:50:52 »
Well just after nearly a year with the current gls2000 I need to sort the selector switch again.

When I bought it the selector lights would all light up if you jiggled the selector. So I jacked it up and removed the pnp switch

Opened it up and it was full of a waxy substance, cleaned it out and refitted then all was well till now.

I think its needs cleaning again but I would like to waterproof the tracks or tje whole think

Is dielectic grease waterproof?


Omega General Help / XEV/ 2.2 cam cover mods
« on: 12 July 2017, 22:52:05 »
Is there any way to mod the cam cover like the 20xe to stop it breathing in the sump contents and filling the inlet mani with oil?

Or is it a case of putting a discreet catch tank?

Can holes be drilled in the chamber where the sump breather is supposed to return the oil vapours?

Omega General Help / Obd pin out
« on: 23 June 2017, 15:43:03 »
I made a code flasher for my volvo 850, I need to know if the pin out is the same so I dont blow it up

My plan was to add a 3 way slider switch  to swap  moduals

As the title really, Im looking for the trim that has the switch hole for the elec height adjust in grey

If you have a black one I would possibly take it as it can be painted lol

Omega General Help / Brake pull the 2nd
« on: 11 April 2017, 15:44:46 »
I have just had the wishbones and the tracking done,
Now the brakes are still pulling to the right, I have been under the car and greased the sliding pins which had the sticky black stuff on, Now I'm left with sticking pistons, both front discs are shiney even after being off the road for 4 months

The problem I have is, if I stomp the brake with no hands on the wheel while moving on tick over the wheel will sharply twitch to the right, If I did it enough I think it would turn in the road.

Could the NSF caliper be the culprit?

Omega General Help / Low speed wobble
« on: 04 April 2017, 23:25:57 »

Since I have had the saloon, it has had a slight wobble
and can only be felt going less than 25mph, I really felt it the other day after I took my dad out for his birthday and we had a bite to eat. We had a short journey home but was in traffic and it really churned my stomach

what could it be?

Omega General Help / Engine swap
« on: 28 March 2017, 19:48:52 »
As I have failed to sell the mig, I have decided to fix it.

I look at it every morning and I dont want to scrap its too good and everything works.

what are my options when it comes to fitting the propper lump in (X25XE)?

I can get another xev quite easily and I will if its not worth the swap

Omega General Help / Brake pull
« on: 31 December 2016, 19:09:45 »
A well used term, but when braking over 40 the car pulles to the left and the steer hoop goes to the right

The problem shows itself in the last month. The brakes are fine although its due new boots unless I get the wheel spacers.

I hope its either the idler or the wishbones and the geometry is sort of straight, but I was looking into getting it done aswel
