MG MGF Technical - Cheap gaskets
|If anyone is after some cheap exhaust gaskets then check out http://www.lotusecosse.com|
Very cheap at only 99p per gasket. Possibly have some other bits that may fit the F.
The K&N 57i kits seem to always be a lot cheaper for the Elise than they do for the F. I would imagine it's exactly the same or certainly suitable for the F.
Has anyone ever used one of the Lotus Sport upgrades on an F i.e. the different ECU, heads etc.
|Bob - not sure how much these are from Rover - or indeed from the likes of Brown and Gammons - but a lot of Elise owners use mg specialists as they tend to have lower mark-ups than Lotus ones... But thanks for the heads-up: worth checking out :o)|
Regarding Lotus sports stuff - I don't think that anyone has tried a Lotus ECU on an MG - but I don't think that there is much advantage in doing this (a bhp or two different) - difficult to justify the costs. Lotus Sport heads tend to be PTP items - and should be cheaper from "MG" sources (that Lotus mark up again). I am sure that there are MGs out there with these head kits fitted - but I don't know anyone who has one fitted. On this BBS, the most 'popular' head porter is David Andrews - http://members.aol.com/DVApower/ followed by Peter Burgess and Mike Satur.
|Mmm.. I see the Piper cams are £106 more expensive than I sell them for, the Piper verniers are £37 more, the MS head gasket £6 more, the Piper cambelt £10 more... all for the same goods.. seems like bargain central :-))|
|Oh well...at least the gaskets were cheap! ;-)|
