    ebay saves the day

    hi chaps. few of you might remember me having some probs with my cabby.first i started having problems with my throttle position sensor on the dreaded Z18XE which is a totaly sealed unit.VX price £286.00

    next i found out my manifold was cracked and just my luck it has the cat welded too it.VX price £476.00.

    by this time realising i had to fork out over £700 it was head in the hands time.so feeling a bit depressed decided to come on A.S to cheer myself up a bit.

    while browsing the threads i saw one about dropping revs and gave it a read.there was a post about Z18XE throttle bodys and decided to share my anger at havin to buy a whole T.B just cos my throttle pot sensor is dodgy,and i think it was pardeo16v that informed me there was one on ebay so had a look.

    getting to the point i ended up winning the throttle body for £30 and also won a manifold with cat for £150.both look in mint condition.


    so id just like to thank ebay,A.S and pardeo16v for saving me a fortune.i am now happydude once again
