  1. I personally don't have the equipment to quote logs and prove improvements with data, however; from reading this thread I believe I've rectified a fair few niggles I've found. Mainly hesitations when accelerating, not smoothly pulling through the powerband and minor missfires. Fuel has exclusively been NPD 100+ or BP98 where 100 s unavailable Firstly, I sealed the cracked intake box the day I picked up the car. With regular maintenance I've been cleaning the throttle plate for carbon build up. After your suggestion, I checked all header heat shields for security an found a couple bracke
  2. I have a 6MT 3.0 and run NPD 100 Working through various hesitations and following this thread with interest haha
  3. NZDM cars predominately come as AUS spec models and when indicated, are tuned to run adequately on 91. Even current gen NZ New Mazda 2.5 Turbo engines are spec'd to run 91... 😕 Interestingly, their latest SkyActiv X engine requires minimum 95 octane or higher for the 'homogenous' or compression ignition petrol engine...
  4. Let's just say the engine wasn't too happy after the oil filler cap was mistaken for washer fluid cap... She's seized solid now... 😬
  5. Any guesses for what happened here? (Not mine, ha)
  6. Yeah, got there in the end haha, see above post. I've edited the first post to make it clearer
  7. @Andy_Mac My bad, I got confused between the AVLS and AVCS solenoids. The solenoids for AVCS (timing) appear to indeed be interchangeable. Partsouq only shows one part number with a quantity req'd of 2
  8. Same thing on Partsouq haha EDIT: These are the AVLS solenoids, only applicable to the EZ30
  9. I haven't removed these valves myself but it might be worth noting the LH and RH valves have different part numbers possibly indicating they can't be swapped...
  10. Agree with Andy_Mac. I did this today to my car funnily enough. I only had a squeak when the clutch pedal was released. Being lazy I just carefully sprayed a lubricant on the push-rod going through the firewall. Is your noise from inside the car or outside in the engine bay? Should help isolate the culprit...
  11. As far as I am aware, for a simple plug and play deal you can use FreeSSM to check whether Cruise Control has been integrated into the PCM. I have an '05 BPE Manual, Import, without cruise buttons/switches fitted, though the computer indicates it has been pre-programmed (by the green tick) and would only need the necessary hardware to 'activate' the system
  12. Okay, the one on the LH side of the steering wheel. When you turn your head-lights on and the cluster/HVAC controls dim, that button might bring them back up to full brightness if you wanted to drive with your lights on during the day... The one on the RH side by the ignition barrel, that symbol looks like it might've been for one of the Japanese little parking distance bumper stick things they had, would often raise from the LHF corner of the bumper
  13. If they are standard filament bulbs and are after a simple upgrade, look for some quality Hella/Narva or other branded + output bulbs. Normally in like +120% or +150% etc etc. Bear in mind, this comes at the expense of bulb life If they're the factory HID units, boon's suggestion should have you covered. Side note, @boon when you went to Philips bulbs, did you stay with the OE 4300k colour or venture out for something different? Another thought, on the right hand side lower dash, to the right of the ignition barrel is a little switch panel. On that panel there could be a little scrol
  14. The bearings are a different size for a start, however the bolt in bearing carrier for the rear has a different (smaller on the 5x100 hub) bolt spacing. To swap to the larger bearing unit there's specialist marching required to the rear arms and an adapter plate fabricated. Have a look at the 3rd from bottom post here https://legacygt.com/forums/showthread.php/conversion-5x100-5x114-3-05-lgt-129874p12.html?highlight=hub+swap
