Long overdue service. The state of that MAF before!
Hey Ed, what paint did you use on your manifold? I like the finish.
I think you will find that is only a heat shield the manifold would be covered by the shield.
As for type of paint ceramic based paints are good for such items but I'll allow Ed to confirm what he used on his and how well it is doing after all this time.

Oops, yep, that's what I meant to say.
I used Halfords high temp paint. I think it was the black one but it came out a nice gunmetal colour.
Hey Ed, hope all is well, any new update on the DCi-R..?
Just fishing through Ebay and saw these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-4...D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 thought you may have swiped them so thought I would ask. Oh and keep up the good work, seen alot of nice pics you've taken of loads of gtroc owners rides.
I have a set of SSR TypeCs already so nope that's not me.
Long time bud... hope all is well.
My project will hopefully be getting a easy fast forward due to Liam selling up so will be swapping over some bits from his Only got as far as installing a Hybrid 2 Turbo on mine (done 10k on it already lol).
Look forward to hearing some updates/progress on the legendary DCi-R.
No updates to speak of I'm afraid. Not sure if there will be any more in future either. I need to decide on what, if anything, I will do with this project now.
Don't say that.
After so many years of family life, & owning & accumulating one N16 after the next (total being 12, & currently owning 5). When I've finally tried to pave way to try & make time for finally tuning my car... your thinking of calling it a night.
Sad times indeed, have to give it to you for your persistence & single handedly keeping the N16 platdform alive... or even the 'Almera' name in general.
Have got to give you a big thanks aswell for writing up them numerous threads to help out fellow members like myself.
Not sure if your message above was pointing towards you thinking of selling up, but if it is... then being able to own your Almera would the greatest honour & would make me a really happy chappy. xXx
If your message relates to lack of funds for research/development etc, then I can sell some of these sheds & can hopefully assist you in some way, only thing I did was buy a lousy Navara Injector and posted it out to you, hope that seems fair bud.
It's more a lack of time to be honest, and also most money goes back into the business at the moment. Will have to see how things pan out whether I put more money into the N16 or not.
Any updates pal?
This use to be my wheels fetish thread in the days!!
Nothing new I'm afraid. Been off the road since July 2017. So some sort of plans to put it back on the road and sort the issues out (if youve been keeping track), but unsure long term. I do miss it though.
How did u fit the boost gauge edk
hope all is well, and work is busy (I think it is as I've seen some pics on GTR with your markings!!)
What's the latest with this beast, sorry I know your not on here much just like everybody else lol, if you post DCi-R stuff on insta then please could you send your link.
Nothing to report. It's still not moved since July 2017. Still intent to keep it and run it eventually though. It's not dead, but on hold.
