More questions!!! - SORRY! :stupid:

How many miles could you expect from a uk spec , full service history engine?

Anyone had any problems with their engines?

Ever had to replace one, if so is it expensive?

What boost does a car run as standard?

Maximum boost on a standard engine?

*May be looking at a car at the weekend. 400bhp is selling his!

Cheers

1) 200k +

2) Very Rare!

3) Probably!

4) I think about 0.7 bar?

5) Most seem to run 1.1 or 1.2 bar with other mods to suit.

What about the Turbo's? Milage?

My RS Garett could only run 1 bar on a standard thrust bearing?

It had a 360 to run more?

Cheers

0.8 is normal I believe.

UK's run rich so you can safey run higher boost. The engine should be sound but the turbo's may need replacing depending on the mileage and how long hes been running the high boost.

As long as regular servicing and frequent oil changes have been done, you should be ok :D

If it was running standard boost its not gonna be 400bhp :)

60 to fill up with optimax.

80 litre tank.

300 miles if your drive with spirit.. and 350+ if you drive sensibly.

Rob, that was only once.. and when I first picked up the car from south wales.. so it was all motorway driving back along the M4, since then its been 300 :D

My right foot is too heavy.. hence current bicyle power :sly:

Nope - turned the cruise on at 65 at M1 J22, and didn't turn it off until the Dartford crossing :D

Driving sensibly I get ~250 miles with probably half motorway, half town and A roads (smaller j-spec fuel tank though, I'm never sure on the sizes, is it 70litre j-spec and 80litre uk??).

I believe Chris Wilson services a Supra with over 300k miles and nothing really major replaced.

Yes thats correct Thorin, the UK's are the duracel bunnies :D
