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 .

Think other rads are a better fit tbh, i used a fexi pipe and did a loop the loop, problem is you can not get the oil filter off, i then change for 2 pipes together more like a s shape, still fiddly mind.

if you can go for a different rad  :D

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.

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.

I ran around on the standard brakes for a while but my fist track day was approaching so bought a full set up.

Replace rear discs and bearings and ferodo ds2500s

Fronts had a extender made through a fellow rtoc guy, bigger discs 285s, long story but txi discs do not fit 4 pots, so ended up with lancer discs and had the machined to fit, i bought willwood midilites and some ferodo ds2500s which i had to grind a bit to fit :)

Nice re-build buddy,

where did you get your brake lines from?


All brake lines were replaced with copper, so where the fuel lines. I was using goodridge hoses front and back but when i changed to 4 pots i had to make my front lines up from braided pipe and fittings all bought from rally design :)
