From redcar mate.

Took the van on the track at fcs, had a bit of a mis-fire problem when hot, Think the aei is at fault. Ive moved the aei to the ph2 position & replaced it with a spare, have also renewed the critical ign components too i.e tdc to hopefully cure it for good.

Been a while since update!

Clutch went last oct so has been laid up since then, on inspection I found a spring had gave way. Took off road for a few upgrades as the aim for '10 is a 12 sec qtr.





Decided to upgrade to an ap 4 paddle whilst changing & 3.6kg flywheel.



New all in one 2.5" downpipe to replace cast restrictive elbow.



m&h 22" racemaster slicks (pictured on Rob@byr old clio)



I'm planning on more power so decided to upgrade the intercooler to something a bit bigger, should tuck in behind bumper nicely to keep the stock look. ;)



Trial fit


 


Next job is mount i/c & paint brackets, adjust piperun to suit. Aiming to get it back on the road for beginning of march.

Biggest cooler i could get off the shelf that would fit without major surgery :lol:

Ill have a pop down when its back on the road mate, shouldnt be too long :wink:

Tonights progress, Bumper cut & fitted, had to loose the slats. Shame really as it doesnt look as discreet as before, function over looks this time.

Getting there though finally. Excuse the shonky phone pics, need to get some decent pics with my dslr.

Piperun is mocked up, just need some more mikalor hose clamps. Roll on payday...

Took the long route, too tight near gearbox mount the chassis rails must be slightly different to the gtt. Hole was already there for pipe to go through no cutting req.









Fitted my devil strut brace, thought it was a shame to keep it in the cupboard doing nowt..
