    Staying just as it is most likely .I'll just hit it again with satin and vinyl it up .No money in the pot for frivolous tartyness .Might get some ELMS type shizzle on it ??

    ///GTA\\\ ...this is the max it will go before we start hitting the shock bottom mount .Once all the weight is in I need to glean some data from the Ecup cars and take a stab at setting it proper .
    Also got some wheelarch pockets from a mate in NI that has taken moulds from a Lemans GTA .These ran 16" all round so obviously my issue was not unexpected .

    Cheers Andy ,it's taking forever but getting there .

    .......two months to go till Goodwood RS thing ...I don't think it will be on track but will be there ..... More bits arrive and fitted .New clutch line and acc cable + brake bias,fittings and pipe ,cunifer rather than copper .Lids back on front and rear ...bit close on the tank . Might swap feed to pumps with a 180 fitting but not really need as all free loops .... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Shaping up to be a bit of a weapon mate...whats projected HP output?

    450/500 but pure track so a bit of a screamer,rev limit moved up a notch or two + lots of secret squirrel headwork etc .Best we've got from a road going 2.5t lump to date is around the 350 mark .
    Got two full weekends in the diary for next month which will hopefully see the lump all together .Bottom end is all bulit here and Martin has the heads,turbo etc all done with him .
