 Cheers Baz  :)   I had to get the seat mounts re-fabricated..  so delayed fitting at the mo.  So instead...  I gave the engine a tidy today..   8)

 

 

 

 I've sort of come to a decsion... that I cant be assed to do anymore to the engine! I have a box of stuff I was going to put on...  but I think its reached a good enough level now for what I want..   so I think it will stay like this now... and happy with it.  Just need to get it tuned up now its done 300 miles since the rebuild... and ready for the summer  8)

  Hi mate,  I just took the green filter off...  I've gone back to the standard set up...  I only use the car on the road now.. and dont race it around so decided to take it off..    I bought a charge cooler kit from K-Tec and was going to use it with the kit.  

  Sounded nice to have the chatter when you lift off with the large filter.. but happy to leave it as it is now..  I think Reno knew what they were doing with that OE air box  :D

yeah, the standard airbox is a good design, i'm going for the chatter though, haha. i love the sound.
the seats look well good with the tungy paint. you going with harnesses?

 Thanks Big Dave and Scratcher :)  yep...  the compressor surge is nice.

 I have seen the harnesses I want... (black 3" 4 point) I was about to get them..  but I dont know 100%  whether or not to get them.  I just put the standard seat belt back in on the passenger side..  they work fine with these seats.

 The reason I'm unsure is if they will be a bit overkill..as I wont be doing any track days... just road use.  I'm trying to keep it as tastefull as poss.  I will have to think it over...   :idea:

 I used the car for the 1st time today with these seats fitted.  It feels like a totally different car now.  You feel the road and how the cars handling directly through your body...  feels like u'r part of the car!  awesome driving it now...  much more fun!   :D

I reckon if you put the standard Reno 5gtt seats on a Porsche GT3 it would feel pants to drive.  My advice to anyone with standard seats....  get some buckets...  it makes a lotta difference to the whole driving experience    8)

Thanks baz!  I am starting to get that...  'when can I stop spending money on this thing' feelin!   It starts off with ...just one more bit..and then thats it... job done.   But theres always something else  :shock:

Have decided to put this on after all...  as the weathers warming up and to help get the air charge temp down..  and see how it goes..



after this...  I am going to change the brakes to something a bit better.
