  1. just inspect the plug on the sensor real good. sometimes you cant tell if the wire has broken off the pin cause its all waterproofed under the rubber grommets etc
  2. @Pappu1 Mine would go super lean and then creep rich over the period of about a minute after turning the ignition on. Turned out to be a bad earth.. the ground wire had come out of the plug.
  3. No idea, i've never had to replace mine from the original that came with my AEM wideband.. but its the same part number as the one I got when I thought mine was dead. Bosch 0258017025
  4. What do you consider well priced? I've got a brand new Bosch 0258017025 LSU 4.9 sitting here if you need one in a pinch. $135 Otherwise something like this might be the treat https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Replaces-0258017025-Compatible-Wideband/dp/B07L2S3JRG/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=Bosch+0258017025&qid=1551315909&s=gateway&sr=8-4
  5. Id suggest so, just not sure what else it would be.. its the easiest thing to change too. Getting stuck into diff bearings is no fun and its also less likely than a wheel bearing
  6. From my experience wheel bearings have to be pretty shagged to get noticeable movement when working the wheel by hand. Also often its the opposite side than it sounds like
  7. Whats the milage, one of mine went at 120,000 and so I just did both. Mine sounded pretty metallic and rumbly..
  8. So I'd need to buy both hub and hub carriers? this
  9. easy to do if you buy the whole hub and bearing assembly, just did both my wagon front bearings. Its in my thread if you want to see photos of things apart. I got my bearings from SubTech in Penrose

    Wheel Cleaning

    I find this guy fascinating to watch. Products he uses may not be available in NZ but his method is something pretty hectic haha
  11. If its 2001 I think you mean Rev-D in which case you are in luck. If its a Rev-C there is no remaping going to happen. @Pappu1 Would be your best bet
  12. isn't that a given with the power you are talking?
  13. @BMCracer I think its passed the point of giving them a chance to resolve it. That kind of damage simply shouldn't happen. There are a lot of us needing airbag recall work done so naming the shop as a precautionary measure for us would be awesome. We all understand that you are specifically warning us about Airbag recall work and not blanket stating that the shop is useless.. Its less shaming them and simply making them accountable for the poor workmanship you experienced. Sounds like they need to have a chat to their lads to make them more mindful.. some people simply dont think.
  14. Sorry to hear that mate. Our family has been on that same journey like many and I found that although its a S*** situation it brought everyone closer. Hoping for the best outcome for you and your Family. Regardless of If you make it or not I look forward to meeting you
  15. Cheers mate, sounds good... also if the RA makes it that will be a nice touch. lots on here have heard about the mythical being Currently looking at making it happen next year late Jan early to mid Feb so hopefully that works for you
  16. Good on ya mate. I'll get a google sheet up for those that are keen to throw their details in. Just finalising things before we get to that point. Also @ADIKT I know you were largely involved with making the last one of these happen. Do we have ClubSUBs approval and support behind this etc, anyhting the Club can do on the day to make it more of a happening thing
  17. Just keeping you lot in the loop, PBMS have given me the below offer. Just waiting to hear back from some other shops on pricing etc.
  18. Yea I get that, and possibly one day two years ago they did promise something.. and if that is something they want to honour then awesome.. and I will mention it to them.. But I also get that running a performance based business in NZ is not the easiest job.. and that most of us here can spare $80 to have a go on a dyno. It will cost y'all more than that just to fill your car with 98 on your way to the Dyno.. I'm also reaching out to other shops to get competitive pricing.. you would hope PBMS as our sponsor can do something special for us. Nah, do it in the heat of summer.. if the car holds together and makes good power it only gets better in winter.
  19. Update: Been in touch with PBMS.. further details to come. Currently looking at something early next year as most people are super busy with business this time "Including myself". When I have more info on prices etc I'll start a dedicated thread with a poll to opt in and what not. Cheers
  20. Hi Pat, Good to hear from you and see you on the forum. I did send an email via the form on your website, but I’ll try flicking it through to that address and hopefully we can get something sorted. Cheers, Aidin
  21. Never done it myself, but if the welds are half decent you are going to spend some happy hours with a die grinder and then probably have to replace the WG flapper turbo dependant it would be easier and possibly cheaper to get a new exhaust housing and WG assembly
