thanks baz and smith..   :D   I am going to try the charge cooler...  but will see how i like it...   I have heard some good and some not so good reports.   I dont over-use the car..  it wont be on track.   I dont think a charge cooler is suited for a track car but road use should be fine... and keep the charge temps lower than my current set up  8)

I'll see how it goes anyways...  :)

For some reason,  I've always wanted to have one.. i guess it was one of the toys I used to be jelous of other guys having that I really fancied when I got another 5  (this one)  :lol:

I've decided to change my brakes again...  I've gone for 285mm disks this time to fill those wheels up a bit more,  some new standard calipers and some Ferodo DS2500 pads.   I am hoping these pads will work well, I've heard good things about them so want to try them out.

Engine tune booked in 3 weeks..  just going to get the standard venturi carb set up with the right jets to run a little more boost and see how it goes.  (thanks GTTBoy for a great article on carb tuning!)

 Hey baz,  yeh...  will have it rr'd ... need some new engine mounts ...  have a bit too much movement...  then will get the interior sorted finally and by then it should be time to get it set up..  think I've decided to go for some black harnesses...  I had a moment of inspiration and was thinking blue..  but decided to keep it stealth..lol.  Theres no other colour apart from red, grey, black on this car.. so might as well stick to it.

Hi mate, cars looking sweet now, i do like those seats.
I was the same as you in regards to the chargecooler, i had to have one, then i sold it a bit later on in favor of the FMIC i have now.
I also use DS2500 pads, they squeel a little at low speed braking but they're awesome so i can live with it.
