    Had the injectors out of my D2 a few years ago, the FPR is a nightmare to get to on the D2 so just popped the injectors out, then turned the engine over till each cylinder in turn was at the top of it's stroke and soaked up any diesel with blue roll

    Now that I know what fpr is haha. If you do manage to take lines off, you will still need to get fuel out.

    I haven't been keeping track with this thread of late, but really glad that you've got it 'finished' - it looks brilliant!

    Were you at the LRO show with a shorter chap btw?

    @KimB did you keep a note of the new injector code? It will need programming. It will work fine but won't be optimal unless you lucked out and got one the same as the old one.

    Those fuel coolers are prone to leaking when the seals harden. The units cost a fortune but you can replaces the seals really easily if you have the right tool for undoing the clips holding the ends in(you'll be crying if you don't have one). Let me know if you need some seals as I bought a pack.

    I've never found the FPR to be that big a deal to swap on a D2.

    When are you upping the compression/fuelling/turbo? :)

    Glad it's getting some love! (I put 1000 miles on my white elephant recently so congrats!)

    Yes well aware. The code will be getting done while it's having the ecu fixed and should have it back and all done by the end of the week. Hopefully.
    I've done about 1000 now too :)
    I have a few things I want to do, larger intercooler, VVT and a dyno and stage 3 remap should be more than enough. It'll run about 230bhp doing that stuff. Don't need it to mental.
    I have also fitted a slikshifter. What an amazing thing. Gear changes are so nice now! For £75 it improves it vastly!

    Basically makes the gearbox not so sloppy. Not that mine was but it makes the gear changes shorter and smoother. Not to much movement of the gear lever now and it changes gear which is good. Rather than some which can be like sturring porridge with a. Long spoon

    no one likes a sloppy girl?
    usually swapping the gearbox top stops the sloppy feeling,
