Looking good matey, am loving the sidey exit box :lol:
with ref to the quick delivery your welcome matey, don't forget to wind the bleed valve all the way in so you can set things up properly for your engine.

James what do you think about the Avos coilovers. I think to put 550lbs springs on them. What you will recommend. Thanks

I use AVO's up front with some 6" eibach 550lbs springs I like them and for my purposes seem to suit, adjust the damping to about 1/2 way for a slightly more comfortable ride

 :lol:  I have mine low although now raised 30mm above this pic the handling was fantastic no real body movement at all which is mine main reason for changing to the stiffer springs in fact I have all small selection of springs for my coilovers in different weights i have 450lbs, 500lbs, 550lbs I even have a pair of 650lbs springs aswell.

The only reason the car was raised was purely due to me catching the side exit centre box in literally everything




How mine sits now

I used Eibach 2.25" id x 6" length and use the 550lbs, they are very stiff but on the AVO's you can adjust the damping to make them feel better my adjustment is about 1/2 way giving me a slightly less solid ride

The suspension is fit. I need to buy more things and next week at some point will go to MOT.











And the next step is to put the boost meter, the rev gauge.

Can any body tell me how to wire the boost gauge and the rev gauge. The boost gauge there are 3 cables ( black, orange, red) And Please Markey Mark to tell me how to wire the rev gauge what i bought from him.

Thanks
