  1. Drivetrain out via top or bottom?

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    As as above makes no difference
  2. Are all ZR sills rotten?

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    If your outer sills are corroded changes are the inner panel is as well since they rot from the inside out
  3. Rover 25 suspension?

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    That doesn't make sense the R25 suspension is so high and soft. Are you sure someone hasn't fitted the ZR suspension to lower it as a lot of people do
  4. Which kind of brace struts...

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    To be honest i never drove the car without one fitted and since its far from a standard car it wouldnt be fair to compare. The 25 would most likely benefit more as it has a added brace at the back of the front inner wings in the engine bay anyway
  5. Which kind of brace struts...

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Also i used a OMP and Dark Ice brace on my 200 R8 IMG_20181210_182234 by John Quincey, on Flickr IMG_20191229_160115~2 by John Quincey, on Flickr
  6. Which kind of brace struts...

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    You need the 400/45/ZS rear brace for the for the 200 R8 not the 200/25/ZR one
  7. MGZR 160VVC Clutch replacement

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    The ZR doesn't have a hydraulic clutch so there's no slave cylinder
  8. Hello, thought it about time I joined up.

    Introduce yourself
    If it's a good TF I'd do any little bits and wait for the better weather to come. The market is improving for models such as the 135/160 etc
  9. MGZR 160VVC Clutch replacement

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Home job if your ok on spanners
  10. Janspeed Manifold - Wanted

    Wanted
    Not a chance
  11. Is it possible to tuning a MG ZR 120 to a 160 power output???

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    I don't think you will get the 120 to that power tbh. I know someone with 285 cams, ported head, large valves, Jenvey throttle bodies, Janspeed manifold and 160 pistons with a Emerald K6 ECU and he's only just broke the 150bhp mark.
  12. Is the engine really the dog it's made out to be?

    MG 3
    Comparing it to a XR2 that came out in 1982 and finished in 1989 isn't saying much ;)
  13. Are our engines for rubbish, or our mechanics?

    MG ZS / Rover 45 & 400
    Nothing wrong with the engines it's poor quality parts and mechanics not understanding the engine in 90% of the time. If I had a £ for every time I'd taken the head of a K Series that had a recent HG change, MLS gasket, low liners, original oil rail and no PRT thermostat I'd be a lot better off
  14. 1.8 Turbo K-Series swap

    MG/R Modification & Tuning
    No its the VVC head. I don't run idle control on mine just set the idle screw to open the throttle valves slightly
  15. 1.8 Turbo K-Series swap

    MG/R Modification & Tuning
    That seems low on power. I run a 1.8 with 285's and S1 Exige VHPD intake throttle bodies and that makes just under 185 bhp on an Emerald K6. That was with the Factory exhaust at the time
  16. Clutch gone at 20K miles

    MG 3
    Do products from China ever last?
  17. 262mm to 282mm Brake Upgrade

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Brake fade (long pedel travel) is caused by the brake fluid over heating not the pad material. If you want to get rid of high pedal travel fit a Landover defender non ABS master cylinder if you don't use ABS on your car
  18. Finally found the ZT-T ive been after

    MG ZT / Rover 75
    I don't believe so it's ignition blue, 2004, 1.8 Turbo K Series
  19. Finally found the ZT-T ive been after

    MG ZT / Rover 75
    Last night i managed to pick up the ZT-T ive been looking for :drool4: Its the first ZT ive owned and i must say its a very different car from the ZR and ZS's im used too :D I was very impressed by how much of a higher class of car it seems in compared to the others but it you can tell straight...
  20. Are EVs really the answer in the future? I do not think so. I am not alone.

    Other Motoring Chat
    About as much as the diesel engine was ;)
