    Looking good James. I prefer 5's that have been played with, else they all look the same and it gets a bit boring :lazy2.gif:

    Whats left to do

    285 cam,vernier and spring's,
    Bigger turbo than what I have in situ currently a T25 but I don't want lag (trying to keep away from a VNT),
    Dash with no holes and heater matrix (have new heater matrix already),
    Air deflectors for inter cooler and rad to make sure air goes through them and not around,
    Re do tailgate badges,
    Under seal the car and OSR arch,
    And fix what ever breaks in the meatntime

    Did you hear that ?

    There , again James ?

    You must have heard it this time ?

    I * think * it was something like VMT , or VNT. It appears to be calling your name.

    Hi Andy, as you know I can't take any credit for the shell that's Jrp but the rest is me:)

    Ref the vernier I would say yes but I am hopefully doing a deal with a kiddie on RTOC later for new 285, vernier and springs

    HKS EVC V boost controller also fitted due to boost control issue's, this seems to have sorted it all
