Oh also, not sure if you have a Mbc or ebcs but is it possible to make a "push to pass" button? Turning up boost (and whatever else needed) to pass while you can then drive safer and more conservatively on the track

I just thought the Spaceballs reference was funny. Haven't seen that movie in years.

Ebcs. And yes it's possible. Push a button and I could utilize a higher boost map. Say I track with 25 psi with a push of a button I could get 29 psi instantly for an extra 50-60hp I'd say.

Nice car, I am looking into building a splitter for my 06 at the moment, still trying to decide Alumilite, aluminium plate, or whatever.

Just choose something that's thick, strong, relatively light and not expensive. Alumapanel is what I used.

Isn't that the panelling that uses two thin aluminum ply's on either side of a plastic composite?

I bought it from a local company called proveer. I believe they have stores across Canada/USA.

Yes it is very different. Much lighter and stronger. Also a lot cheaper.

Definitely a head gasket problem. Track season pretty much over so haven't touched the car for a while. Will pull the motor to swap to cosworth head gaskets when I find some time

Just spent a few hours yesterday and today fixing all the links to the pictures. I have over 200 pictures in this thread! Couldn't believe it. Thanks to the people who let me know the links didn't work anymore. Still missing like 2-3 but can't find those pictures anymore

Found these 2 from a while back when I was debating whether or not to put the front flares on... what do you guys think.
