Re: WTK - Y12 front brake upgrade

Akebono ProAct is a very good OEM replacement pad, possibly the best aftermarket option. How much the pads selling for for a set now?

Re: WTK- DC5 Disc pads

I couldn't say what specifically available for the DC5 in trinidad cause my DC5R not located in TT, but i've never had a bad experience with akebono pads which sold locally. They have a OEM replacement line (proACT) and a performance line, but both are very very good. Not sure if stop-tech sold loca...

Re: CD3 Accord

Before you change the whole distributor, take apart the distributor you have and see if you can clean up the connections on the igniter. I never actually had a whole F series distrubutor fail, it is usually that the ingiter connections need cleaning etc. Start with the free things before you move on...

Re: Toyota Surfs,Hilux and 4X4s.

I second using "oil based" coolants. I personally run the Valvoline Zerex Asian (red), which is supposed to be compatible with the Toyota coolant if your pocket kinda light like mine.

Did you end up getting the Prado? If so , how it going?

Re: Toyota Surfs,Hilux and 4X4s.

The price seems good, the main cost on these vehicles would be if you have major engine problems. You want to check out the engine properly before buying, if not you talking a BIG budget engine rebuild. You want to make sure the coolant is in good condition (actual coolant and not water, no oil in c...

Re: how would u rate NP engine oils....

My mechanic used to swear by regular Np ultra, once it was changed on time. He used it for years in his vehicles and they never had any kinda sluging issues at all. I haven't used ultra-tec personally, but i would say the Ultra and tec lines should be more than fine once you not trying to run some k...

It is very nice if you making Espresso or Arabic/Turkish style coffee. It is ground super super fine because it is meant to be brewed in that style, so not sure it'll work well in a regular coffee machine or french press.

It is very good for the purpose it made for
