  1. Rebuild or replace starter Seals for trans and engine Replace 2 bearings for rear drive shaft and 1 bearing for front driveshaft Valve adjustment All new coolant hoses and couplings All vacuum hoses Fuel filters New hoses for the charcoal canister
  2. The answer to your question is yes:
  3. ComputerExpress is long gone. He bought a trashed e-gear Murci and dumped an insane amount of money into it (probably could have bought a SV in good condition with the money he spent on that car!), and I am not sure he ever got it running right before he dumped it.
  4. I like the idea of making access holes. It's really nice on a Ferrari 360 that the factory put a big access hold in the firewall behind the seats to change the timing belts. I wish all mid-engine cars with timing belts had that kind of access. Needing the take out the whole engine just to get to something simple that the access holes would make possible with the engine in is a real net win. You can break a lot of things removing and reinstalling an engine, so the less you do it the better. Ask DDE. But I can't believe that the Car Wizard didn't do some double checking of the plumbing behind the area he was cutting and cut into the hoses. Very rookie mistake.

    Alarm Issue

    That's great. But you will most likely have to swap out your keys as well. Apparently, you can't program your existing keys to another Med unit, and apparently, the keys are linked to the ignition cylinder, so you have to change that out too. I say apparently, because that's what some Lambo parts people told me they understand how it works, but were waiting for full confirmation from Lambo.

    It sounds very possible your Med is going flaky. I am dealing with the results of Med issues now. And yes, it will strand you hard when it fails. My Med was warning me by losing range for the remote over the past few years, but I didn't know that was a warning sign until the car wouldn't start one day. The Med runs 24x7 unless you unplug the battery, so it's not surprising that it goes bad after so many years. Do you have the 6 digit PIN code for your Med unit? If not, to stay original, add a couple thousand more in parts and probably $500-1000 in labor for changing out your fuel cutoff valves - removing them involves drilling. The Med unit is around $1200 for the part, and very easy to replace. But you will probably have to replace your ignition lock and your keys too. Check my thread on the other forum for details. Someone I know had their Med unit replace at the local dealer recently, and his final bill was $7500, which included the fuel valves because he didn't have the PIN for his Med. An aftermarket alarm with the same capabilities of the Med is around $50, so I am leaning toward replacing the system with aftermarket, which will be a big favor to the next owner. At those prices, I would buy several of the same aftermarket unit for hot spares.

    Alarm Issue

    I reread your original post, and clearly I misunderstood. To me, seems like the alarm is falsely getting a signal that one of the doors or hoods are open.

    That is strange. So to clarify, you unlock the car, get in, start it, and while the car is running the siren goes off, but the car still runs like normal? Do the hazards flash as well? What is the LED on the firewall doing throughout this scenario? What do you have to do to get the siren to stop? If you can't find a quick solution, and the siren is going off, I would unplug it before it injures your hearing. Mine is loud! You can pull the side panel off the center tunnel in the passenger footwell and the Med box is right on top of the airbag controller. It has one small plug going to the led and says LED and the other plug is the siren. Checkout my thread on the lambo*talk forum about the alarm system for pics and more details. It's a recent thread.
  9. Forged carbon is a good choice. It looked really good in Tavarish's Murci. It also looked really good to add it to the bezel around the instrument panel. But IMO, it doesn't need to go beyond those 2 parts.
  10. "Knockoffs," LOL! Are you both saying that Lamborghini makes their own coils in their little factory in Italy?? Ridiculous. Have you noticed how many owners of early Murci's have had to have their "factory" coils replaced after a fraction of the mileage that coils last on other engines? Maybe the ones that Lamborghini chose off the parts bin weren't the best ones, so I am not sure I would want the exact OEM coils. What's your warranty, Nick? And if it's not lifetime, why not, if they are so much better than Napa coils?
  11. A guy named Robert on the Facebook Murci group found this cross-referenced NGK coil using a google search that's 25% less: https://www.sparkplugs.com/product.aspx?zpid=46964&fbclid=IwAR3f7qH-NX1xTnq0eWolYUozzwLEe3FDeanOEuwKKHNaRFf7k79U5lXSO4I And I found those same NGK coils for an additional 10% less on Rock Auto: https://www.rockauto.com/en/parts/ngk,48870,ignition+coil,7060
  12. Half the price and you gain a lifetime warranty! Great find and thanks for sharing!
  13. Great work, and thanks for posting, PoKnow!
  14. Only that guy in the UK that put 300k miles on his Murci by renting it out. For the rest of us, it’s useless. You’re definitely not doing a good job maintaining your exotic if you have to rely on a brake pad warning system. Now for a soccer mon’s minivan, that’s a different story.
  15. They are especially useless on cars that only get driven 100-1000 miles per year. You should have the wheels off changing brake fluid every couple of years anyway.
