Looking good mate, I wish I had the cash spare to go tubular, I'd go for a bigger turbo then, bit restricted to what fits in behind the manifold on mine...

Do you not have more space back there compared to the 5?  Maybe give bulkhead a slight fettle with a hammer!  :lol:

The bay looks amazing mate! Did you manage to hide all the wiring or is there still some go in?

Mark that is looking awesome, can't wait to see what times and power it makes.

That bay looks so bare as Scratcher says I still assume you have some wiring and vacum pipes still to go on.  Top work as always :mrgreen:

Its not finished yet mate but yeah not much will be touching it!  :D

I've built it for drag racing so won't be touching any tracks i'm affraid

James and scratcher - yeah still got some wiring to go in there but the basics are there already, few more pipes and that to go in but is looking minimal in there.
