  1. Yes, exactly right.
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I'm trying to cover all bases and it gets very tricky. And even worse when I don't get much feedback from viewers at all. Alot of the viewers are my sons friends and they love the bloopers. So again trying to cover all bases, younger ones like the funny stuff, the older gen like the serious stuff. I try to add abit of "comedy" here and there as even to watch my own stuff back sometimes can be quite boring. The under construction videos are on the serious side and the new line of videos that are coming up will be different again to what we have done to catch up to what we are currently upto with the cortina. But thanks again for any feedback, much appreciated.
  3. So your not a fan of the bloopers? If your you have admin rights or someone that does see's this post, I don't mind them all going onto one thread. I'm easy
  4. "On todays episode of Australian Cortina ..." Did some modifying of the Throttle Body. It had these 2 pipes coming out of it which were for vacuum signal and sucking engine fumes from the rocker cover to the throttle body. I deleted them and also needed to fatten up the inlet area as the silicone hose reducer was alittle loose for my liking. Plus the T-bolt clamp was wider than the standard lip area of the throttle body. I ended up buying a small peice of 2mm thick alloy tube, sliced it in half cause the diameter was too small. Added 2 small filler peices and welded it onto the throttle body. I added a bead of weld to the end of it so it stops the chances of the hose coming off under boost. Next up, cooler piping and mounting the radiator
  5. Hey guys, I want to know if I can remove the large pipes that come out of the the Throttle body. As in block them off. I just want to clean up the look of it. I'm will be running a Haltech ECU. Are these pipes needed for anything or where they just a polution control type thing that was used back in the day? Thanks
  6. I can do it myself. I have removed the end tanks as I need to shorten the rad by a few mm's to fit. So I thought maybe I should do it while I'm at. Just wanted to see if I needed to do it or not. If I don't need to then I can continue with my work, if I do then I have to order some 3mm alloy sheet and start cutting etc.
  7. Question. I have an alloy radiator which will be going into a TF cortina. Intercooler infront of it. The rad is a 2 core. I'll be running a thermo and electric water pump. Currently the radiator is just in 1 end tank flow across and out the other. Will this be sufficient or should I make some dividers in the end tanks so that the water has to make 2 trips across the core before exiting out?
  8. Thanks mate. Yeah Leo is a great partner in crime. Yeah, got some spare time here and there and got some work done on the corty. Feels great every time
