    Hi all,Finally got chance to take some good pics of my car now its all cleaned up and pretty sorted.
    I have also managed to get round to under sealing the car so it should be good for years to come.

    Please check out my photos at

    Red 21TURBO F61 OLD.

    Still need to sort out front passenger calliper as it keeps sticking, probably need a new one.
    Taking it to a local car show next month to show it off to see what other people think of my motor.. cheers.....

    Yep thats the one, has had a lot of work done to it over the years by Craig, just needs a little fettling here and there to be a very good example.
    Need some advise on a couple of issues that i have though.

    Question: Any ideas how to set up the tps sensor as how ever i set it up after a little bit of driving engine management light comes on and car splutters now and then (very annoying).
    Also nearside calliper keeps sticking, i have taken it apart to free it but it still seizes, could the flexi pipe be the problem due to its age maybe braking down internally. Any advise most welcome. Thanks...................

    TPS: Hard to explain... if you can get a whole new throttle body with one attached that would be easier. Otherwise, the best advice I can offer is to adjust the switch so the sprung lever is just touching the lever from the throttle body but not moving it. If thats not right, edge it forward a tiny bit, keep doing that till its right.

    It could be that the internal contacts are worn though and you need a new switch altogether,

    Caliper: Trust me, from experience, just buy a new/remanufactured one. They're not that much money to be honest! Saves a LOT of fecking about.

    Cheers for that Dave will give that a go with the Tps.
    As for the calliper where is the best place to get one or serial number.
    One more question, i have done an oil/filter change using shell hellix 10w40 semi-synth but i seem to have low oil pressure, on my gauge it reads just above all the dashes near first single dash if that makes sense. Would mobil 1 10w 60 make any difference or is it just the gauge. Thanks...............
