    Thanks for the info guys. I'm looking forward to tearing her down to her component parts and giving her a full freshen up and rebuild I hear Sam is quite sad that the EF has been sold to me rather than back to him Jonnay. Let him know she's in safe hands. I'll do poppy proud Welz you will probably get quite a few PM's from me over the next few months so brace yourself

    CRX vtec gear ratios
    It's been a few years since I sold my old CRX vtec, so having recently purchased a 4th gen civic with a B16A1 conversion it's reminded me how terrible the gearing is 50mph at 3000rpm in 5th doesn't do anything for me. Can the gears inside be swapped out for slightly newer stuff? Such as the gears from an S4C or S9B? I know I have other options such as a cable to hydro conversion kit or swapping out the cable clutch for a full hydraulic clutch setup, but it'd be useful to know if it can be done. I intend to swap out the A1 block for a C4 running ITR pistons so a change in gearing would be useful I feel

    I'm in the royal navy dude and my fitness test is once a year. I have to do either a mile and a half run in under 11:13 or acheive level 9:10 on the bleep test. I'll be honest, I'm 24, 5ft 10, coming on for 14 stone, chubby not muscley and I smoke and drink too much and I can just about scrape 9:10. I sometimes dont... so the pti's beast my ass 3 times a week til I do
    You should be fine mate. Remember to control your breathing! Dont race off at the start as the first 4 levels are a warm up. You can basically quick walk them. Don't look at others around you! keep to your pace. As long as you keep touching the line at the beep who cares about the people who get there first! keep you head up, breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth and keep your shoulders and arms loose or you'll get sore. Finally, at each shuttle alternate your feet. By this i mean at one end touch the line with your left foot, and at the other end touch the line with your right. If you only use your left/right on both lines you knacker that side of your body with the shock loading of stopping and atarting again. Also... DONT try to over extend your leg to make the beep. you will either slip and bust yourself or ruin your footing to power yourself off again. I know this because I always do it as I get into the 9's

    HTH and good luck buddy

    Any companies out there?
    Hi all,

    Im sure this has been covered 100x but as insurance prices are always changing I thought I'd ask...

    Basically I'm 24, 6 years driving, 2 years no claims, 1 accident (which is still going through) and no points. To cut a long story short, I've been fairly skint up until now, but I can only afford to have one car between me and the missus. Once our current car sells we have decided to buy an EP1, dress it up like a type-R etc etc. If I had it my way i'd buy a DC2 but she'll never get insurance so i've had to settle for the EP:/ She is 18, had her provisional a month and has no convictions, claims etc. Who have people had the best quotes off for a circumstance like this? Basically I dont want a nasty shock when it comes to insuring her with her full license.

    Any help would be great

    Whilst learning to fend for myself when i left home I lived off the following:

    Cup-a-Soup with a bag of walkers chucked in the mug
    Cold cans of heinz raviolli
    Super noodles served in a bowl with a slice of bread in to soak up the juice
    Canned hot dogs... cold from the can
    breakfast in a can... cold (grim)

    Somehow im still alive and not too overweight lol. Maybe its all the rum I consume pickling my insides
