Traveling Parts / Tools

Because our cars are getting up in age, when you take your turbos for weekend trips or extended drives, are there any specific tools or spare components that would be beneficial to have along on the trip.

One that seems to be good to have along is the yellow fuel relay. Anything else that you guys take a long?

I carry the usual toolkit stuff and a 50 foot 3/8" nylon rope coiled up and stuffed under the collapsable spare tire in place of the useless rubberized foam spacer thing that origonally comes under there.

Jumper cables could be needed on a trip, and a regular 24mm box end wrench along with the factory tool for holding the alternator shaft from turning loosens the alternator nut alot better than the factory tool if you need to change/replace a fan belt.

I have needed and used the rope..
. . .thanks again for the tow with your truck the day my old silver bosch ignition coil said seee ya, Frank.

Sounds simple bit a few zip ties of various length's and a few hose clamps can come in handy. Also 13,14,15 mm shorty wrenches. 8,10,13 mm socket and driver with two size's of extensions. What are the most common tool's you use on your car in a regular order? keep a variation of those tools. I use a small bag with these tools along with some pliers and fuses. not very big and doesn't add much weight.Oh yeah 4mm allen for adjusting mixtures.

The mixture allen screw is 3mm and if your alternator has alot of miles on it and the trip is long, bringing a spare is not a bad idea.

If you have a brazilian made silver bosch coil on there you are only renting it for a little while so definately bring a spare coil and tools to get the intercooler off to change it or put male spade terminals and some longer primary wires on both coils so you and swap them quickly without removing the intercooler.

The old black german made bosch colis were reliable but the new brazilian silver ones are short lived junk.
...and an MSD high vibration blaster coil is lightyears better and cost about half the price.

I looove hot, friendly, down to earth brazilian chicks though
