    I'm still here - just as Dave said with very little time and even less money now hahhaaaaa.

    As we stand - I've got the engine in and running, she runs fine and roughly mapped for 18psi which is very rough, I'm keeping it down to 14-16 for the time being. Now I've found a water leak somewhere where I need to get the time to look into, then once that's done, plan my trip to Scoffs to get the map as it should be for that set-up.

    I'm still reading posts on here from day to day and feeling like I'm missing a large part of my life now, especially with the Euro-trip coming up. But I'll be there at out ND and also one or 2 other key events. @Tnt nick@Tnt nick if you want to come to ND - feel free to jump in with me as I read you're leaving the fold.

    Welcome to the next 5-10 years of your life (depending on how forgiving your mrs is lol) :) Totally worth it when you look back though. Which is easy for me to say as i'm out the other side of "the dark times" :D LOL

    MOT time next weekend, so I thought I'd have a poke around for the pesky small water leak at the pump end of things only to find these ----

    So much for mapping on the open road LOL, 16psi is all he's having for the time being - off to Scoffs to get him running at optimal. 18 psi max on this turbo as that was it's sweet spot.

    Hahaa - OE disks Brigsy. I had a spare pair of larger disks on standby, so they have gone back on for now. Once I max those out, oe will be going back on. This year is about minimum spendage!

    Fair do's :D I was going to say the o.e discs are a lot cheaper than buying new 285's. Mine are both run on minimum spendage every year lol

    I did what everybody did back in the day Jon, followed like sheep etc. Seems like if you look around nowadays, a lot of oe stuff was more than upto the job, especially when you spend a bit more on pads etc. So, I will be going back to oe at some point (probably when my pads need replacing) and I'm sure I've got a fair number of disks kicking around also - I just didn't have the time to look for them in one of my many R5 treasure troves.

    Fluffy did well, straight through the mot no problems, and a renewal quote of £113 all in value agreed insurance. Great news on a mega Budget year.

    Was out on Saturday morning bedding in the new disks and pads, still great, even unmapped and seriously down on power. :D

    OK - got an unknown engine back in Fluffy and had been wondering if there were a fruity cam in there before mapping at the end of August.

    Going off the amount of thread showing, what do you guys think???

    Good call - @TNT Mr Raider@TNT Mr Raider - you're up again LOL.

    Cheers for the photo Adey - I'd seen that on FB and couldn't see it again. I think it was @Briggsy that said it looked like a cammy cam. I'm not sure, it would be great for Karl to post his up and Briggsy to do the same..........

    Hold on a minute!

    I have my old Rocker assembly with my CatCams adjusted tappets on it - I'll go take a peak........

    This is my 285 one ......

    This one is from the one in my car now........

    What says you all.

    Karl if you can upload an image or anyone els who knows they have a standard cam in there.

    I'm going with standard on that one Andy. I'll check the 9 later, which I know is standard.

    Don't forget head skims can change that adjustment level too, can't they?!

    Have been thinking about this since looking at @Adey@Adey rocker pic the other day. Ill get a pic of the vans, i know the nuts are right at the top of the adjuster - only on a couple of turns and its hard to even hold the top of the adjuster - so i will say it looks like stock cam on the current one fitted in yours @TNT Andy@TNT Andy

    Do a pmt swap for your cat cam in situ before mapping:)
