Re: H Plate 5dr gti - Honda Dohc engine - pre cat

R8 Tailgate Buffer Rubbers

Re: R8 D16 engine stalls when warm/hot. Works fine cold.

When the engine is warm, does it rev OK when the accelerator is depressed? Or does it only stall when it's under load? Sorry, lots of questions.

Re: Humour

A friend of mine recently got fired from his job at the calendar factory. A bit harsh really, all he did was take a day off.
