Its been while since i updted the progress on the B18FT project, since last time the cars had new respray, the engine is finally built back up after i played with it again, new Forge pistons, new injectors, made the downpipe and screamer pipe and did a freshen up of the engine too. Also got the new clutch too, full competetion cover with 6 paddle Helix plate

Interior wise, got the clio dash fittd and new cage in too, i'm doing abit more to it this weekend will try grab some more pics if i remember
