Technical Advice


Recommended Posts

Need some advice on a couple of issues:
1. 2000 Spyder idles low at times. Sometimes as low as 400rpm and on the verge of stalling but doesn’t stall or at least I haven’t let it try stalling. When you turn the A/c on, it goes up to about 800rpm. Throttle body was cleaned a few years back. No warning lights and no error codes scanned. Thought maybe it’s the MAF but it doesn’t seem like a MAF causing issue. HPU was replaced 3 years ago as was the ECU.
2. I have been running 205/40R17’s all round on the car and, unfortunately, this tyre size doesnt come in the correct load rating for the car. The max load rating for these sized tyres is 86W but that is for a crappy Maxis and I have o confidence in Maxxis. Am I OK to go into a 215 sized tyre or will it rub on the struts? As you know the Spyder has a 83 load rating on the front and 86 on the rears so fitting anything under these ratings would be illegal and thus void your insurance if an accident happens Any assistance would be great.
