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.


cheers Steve,  I think I'll still fit it just to see how it goes (Its more curiousity than anything)..  I know of a few 5's that have been really impressive with the pace cc.   I was wondering what it was that you didnt like about it?  I think it will be better than my current cooler.  I only go for blasts on good weather days and wont be on track with it and pushing it to its limit...so I dont think I'll break it..  :lol:

Looking forward to getting the bigger brakes sorted should be here by Friday..  if the pads squeek like a stuffed pig...  they might not be on very long tho..lol.  cheers for the info dude.

The rad & water reservoir were too small for the boost i was running IMO, if i gave it a good hard run @ 21psi the water was really warm !!
The large FMIC suits my application better now:)
The pads may not squeel on the different discs, i have ebc, my brother had ebc on his old rover with there red stuff pads & they squeeled so maybe it's my discs.

ok,  I might find the same as u...   I'll post an update on how I find it.  I think it will be a better choice than the front double capacity jobbie I have now.

I'll let u know if I'm squeeking soon!  :lol:  (or not)

cheers guys...  its taken a long time to get it like this.. about 3 years.. each time I think 'thats enough'  but it never seems to work out that way....

Interior is being sorted with a nice black carpet in the front half soon..  a few other bits I have got hold of as well...  the CD player and speakers are back in the front  (thats what I call music to my ears!) 4 point black harnesses going in.

Brakes...  285mm grooved disks..  new standard calipers.. ferodo ds2500 pads... already have areoquip hoses.

Engine... charge cooler.. big green cossy filter,  bigger turbo downpipe..(not a all in one) as I got one of those but wanted to keep my heat shield over the turbo, set up the fueling to run around 20psi... then have sum fun in the sun.

 Cant wait to get these bits done...  bits on order so its a waiting game.

 Then...  'thats enough'  (unlikely)   :twisted:

   :wink:
