Todays updates...


Stripped and cleaned the throttlebody and smoothed out a few imperfections. Didnt go mad, just jolly'd it up a bit

Also gave the header tank the glass bead treatment ready to be powdercoated. The turbo water feed will be converted to an -AN fitting before this is done.

Also wonder if anybody can spot the modification to the newage tank?

Okay, ive cut and smoothed the lower leg that usually bolts to the power steering line. The tank will not be in the stock location and the PAS lines will be different anyway so i thought id give the header tank a smoother cleaner look.

I think they came up quite nice

Oh, i also got a call to say my all new KW V3 coilovers had arrived, finally!!

If I only ask one thing of you I ask that you do not paint the cam cover. It looks pretty terrible in any color but black. You've got enough other nice things under the hood that you don't need to draw attention away from. A painted cam cover will stick out like a sore thumb.

Black... the only colour they ever should be

Todays progress...

Firstly, big thanks to Trails for dropping some parts off for me.

Firstly my KW's are finally here. They look awesome and i cant wait to get them on.




Mocom Phenolic manifold spacers



NGK Racing 8's (Sparkplugs) - Seemingly the most expensive plugs on gods earth lol!-



Shame that the pics are cak but i gave the car a wash today and also spent about 2 hours fully degreasing my engine bay as best i can. Lots more to be done here but at least its all dirt free now.
