I just installed an armtech revlimiter today. It has flat shifting capability but I didnt get the switch for it unfortunately

Launch controll would be awesome B-)

Was really easy to install the armtech device, in this pic you can see where I mounted it on the aei unit.
It connects to the coil +tve and -tve, with a ground also.

I can get you another pic which shows exactly where you connect the wires to if you like

I was looking into getting some a few months ago, I was informed that there is a member over on RTOC who can do/get hold of very good replica stickers.

I have since seen pics of them on different coloued cars and they look excellent and O.E  8)

in that last pic James?   :(                  thanks for the concern :D  :D

I had a cooland pipe split at the degassing pot some time ago and pink coolant soaked that area. The discoloured (rusty looking colour) is the paint that was affected. I had rubbed part of it with a sponge and the tungsten paint flaked off revealing the original white paint underneath.

I have been looking for a decent rattle can colour to re-do the bay in...Now seems a pretty good time to get it sorted as the engine is more or less in the boot............. :mrgreen:

welding a nut on sounds like a good plan   :mrgreen:

 I had a bleed nipple snap on me earlier this year, I took it to an engineering firm who drilled it out then scraped the remainder of the material from around the threads out, only cost me 5.

Unfortunatley when I put in the new brake lines on it would leek fluid from the threads  :(

removed pistons & liners this afternoon with engine in situ....

was pretty straight forward, although I found it a bit awkward teasing the sump out between the subframe and engine mount - any tips to make it easier going back in?

just need to order up all the new parts and get the pistons to the engineers for new rings to be fitted and hone the liners  :D
