    Brake Upgrades, what are my options?

    It's about time I replaced my brakes and I'm currently looking into fitting upgraded ones to help with fade, I'm also now running wider tyres so better brakes overall would be good. I've searched the forum and net, and I've got some info out of it but it's all still quite vague. I have 13"...

    Coilpack CG10 & CGA3 heads

    What are the differences(if any) between the 1.0 and 1.4 coilpack engine heads? I know the 00-03 CGA3 has a slightly different valve-train setup than the 92-99 CG13 & CG10, but what about the 00-03 CG10? The reason I ask is because I'm looking to create a under-bucket shim set-up for some...
