Tech. Music. Games.


There’s a TV channel in Finland that plays back-to-back Wheeler Dealers and Deadliest Catch. All day long. When I stay over there I tend to have it on in the background while I’m working, because I’m partial to a car being fettled, and seeing people nearly die just to catch a fucking crab never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, this popped up…

So I had a hunt around and lo, there’s a chap in a van that comes around to your house and does it. Since I’ve just bought myself a ten year old hairdresser’s car, I figured what the hell? It can’t hurt, so I’ve had it done.

And fuck me, it seems to do exactly what it says on the tin! Idle revs are about 200-300 lower, and the car perceptibly gets through the gears more cleanly. Obviously, I’ve not owned it for long enough to tell if the claims of returned horses are true, but I’m definitely happy knowing that my little motor no longer has lungs like Dot Cotton.

Thought I’d pass that on.
