Re: Rear arch panels needed

You can use panels from Volkswagen Golf MK III 3-door. They have similar shape :)

Re: engine turns off when getting hot

Yep, you can check it yourself. You need multimeter.

Read this: http://www.picoauto.com/applications/lambda-sensor.html

Check also the catalytic converter. Maybe it's broken.

Re: WANTED: 480 1.7 Turbo Manual Gearbox

Basically gearboxes are the same in all model of 480. But they are differences in strength of the materials used to the build of this element. M52 are the weakest gearbox. M59 are the strongest.

Re: B18EP/FP engine with B18E electical installation

Hello Jim! Thanks for the response. He replaced ECU two times and all sensors. He replaced inlet manifold because he suspected air leak. Everything was useless. He bought this car and engine had problem with idle. He found a lot of strange solutions under the bonnet. He wanted to organise this mess....

Re: Steel rims and snow tyres

Wheels from 3xx series basically are 13 inch, so they not fit to the front hub. The brake caliper is too big to these rims.
