Gauges were next, bought a set up from chris at efi parts, great lad :)

AFR guage, adjustable boost, water temp and oil press.



Fitted :)








I then had my first trackday, loved it. We were meant to go to rtoc nd but i had gearbox problems, but we did make rsoc day at croft. Car was great, had a few teething problems, jobs im going to do this winter, but overall great day even though the car was running about 150bhp and only 10psi.

Car now has a derestricted ecu, thanks to chris at efi parts again.

Car is currently running about 16psi on the standard t2, it pulls well and stops well.

Think im going to get a few jobs done and make a few changes for next year.

Then maybe next winter start a big turbo conversion gt28, custom manifold etc and maybe go stand alone.

Welldone mate! Really like your car..

Was thinking about the wilwood midilites myself, did you fabricate a custom bracket for them calipers ? and which ones did you buy (you know they have different part number) ?

One of the guys over on rtoc helped me with the mounts. Caliper part number on reciept is 120-7472.

Word of warning i spent nearly 1000 getting the set up i put on the car, If i was doing over i porbably would have stuck with standard size discs and used ferrodo pads with them, then used 13" slicks for on track  :D .
