My experience was that the supplied M7x20 bolts for the ball joint were quite cheesy (despite being marked as grade 8., so I drilled the holes out just a touch so a M8x20 bolt could be used instead. ...

Thanks Fasteddie313 and Ian89C4,

Timing is set conservatively, and I think all the Vac lines are good (but checking them is ongoing).

Hi all, as per the title, I am experiencing pinging on initial sharp throttle "blip" (maybe 1/2 - 1 sec) and then she's all fine. Seems okay under load.

Any ideas?

Do I need to richen ...

Hi all,

I have two sets of tyres/wheels options for my '82 NA (see below - getting new tyres soon).

The car runs standard springs, OEM dampers and 968 sway bars. It handles very well now with 1 ...

Finally got the 27mm sway bar on the front (18mm already installed in the rear). I installed some Poly main bushings at the same time.

I found a pair of used 944 S2 Sways (27mm front, 18mm rear) and have only managed to get the 18mm rear bolted in so far.
