First plan for car is full service;

Plugs - thinking NGK iridiums. What leads (or is it coil thingies) do people recommend?

Cambelt kits. Where's best place to source them?

Second stop will be rr tuners;

Was thinking Interpro but would be pleased to learn of any alternaltives within reasonable travelling distance?

Thanks Vicky. :)

Lol, that's why i said that i would be pleased to learn of somewhere else.

Really would have preferred to get it rr's, to see if everything as it should be, get afc set-up and get base line for future work. The only other rr's i know of in the area is Willfield Motors in S.Wales and Stealth Engineering in Weston (rr being built now) but dont know whether either of these gonna know about Skyline.

Bath is local Tigger so will check out Norris Designs too. Guess safer to let some-one who knows about them look at it than let bunch of idiots blow it up on rollers!

Yeah, m8 of mine took his car there recently for unichip. They told him it had wrong ecu in it, kept it for days and charged a fortune. As he had the car from new the whole thing sounded plain wrong to me. :confused:

Have never trusted my veccie to them. Not heard of power station, will look them up though. Thanks.

Downloaded some files about the Apexi s-afc and it doesn't sound that difficult to set up anyway.

Thank-you. :)

Making plans and learning stuff is all that's getting me through the longest week! :D

(Cambelt change on Skyline is way cheaper than the vxl then. How wierd is that, lol).

I used to travel from Reading to Wigan to visit Hiteq for my pulsar, I would never have taken it elsewhere.....so sometimes it worth travelling further afield if you want to make sure that your pride and joy is being looked after...!

Winterbourne, is there a pub called Golden Heart? If so, know the area a little cos the vauxhall regional meets held there.

Has Power Station got rr?

Vicky don't assume the cam belt will be less than the Vauxhall one was. The part may not be too expensive but it's about 4 hours work apparently. I've just been checking it out to get mine done. Or is it different on GTS-Ts?
