story beginning to come out now :thumbsup:

control unit...  http://www.eurospares.co.uk/partsListing.asp?M=1&Mo=693&A=1&B=41167&S=&ID4=1686692

the problem is NEVER the thermocouple probe end inside the cat. It's ALWAYS the connections to the control unit, or the unit itself, or the chassis loom/connection to the unit.

One new cat or two? What was wrong with the old cat/s?
Worse case scenario is that cat really is overheating, and thats caused by cam timing out (most likely) or possibly faulty injector/s (unlikely)

Anyway, I've got the sales 348 in the shop, so any parts cross reference/diagnosis will be even easier. It runs perfectly.

I got another scratch on the 348 so I got sick of all the touch up jobs on the car and the blemishes/marks here and there, so I put it into the shop this past week for a full respray. Sine the interior is new and the mechanicals are new or as new, might as well make the exterior new too.

When it'll be ready at the end of the month, I'll pop in.

on a related note, do you find the 348 quite twitchy at speed? was talking to someone today who said there were quite terrible.



OH YES!!!

It even scared Ash when he took a corner a bit faster.

amazing isn't it? i wonder why the real reasons are? a 355 is totally planted at any speed (in the dry).

surely it can't just be the wider rear end, cos that's a very easy fix.

The 348 drives NOTHING like my old 355. You literally have to mishandle the thing but that has really grown on me. I still wish it had power steering though, for the tight corners.

Oh, did I mention that the 348 is slow too? It needs a turbo.

I still like 348s, even though people hang shit on them.

Nice angles down low ......

Can I wind up the height on the SP say 1 cm on the front without effecting the geometry much or should I lift it front and back? Another cm clearance on the front would probably be excellent.

Serious? Rake is critical on those cars.

What is the current height front and rear?

Rake is a big tuning factor, but many cars out there are not set right to begin with, many are lowered and owners don't realise.

And anyway, one cm is not a big deal for a softly sprung road car that pitches and rolls a lot anyway.

Raising your car one cm will reduce camber by about 0.2 degrees, and make it toe out more than it currently does.
