Deffo agree on the headstart!! About 3 miles preferably.

badgerwagen still resides 6 foot in the air most of the time on its "own" ramp - lol
with its innards spread around her, disembowled styleee - boo
you sure can dude, I thought I already posted some
But heres the final outcome
The feed for the water meth to the FMIC here:
The piping runs down the passenger side of the car underneath all the trim and behind seats like this
This involves removing the glove box, kick panel on the passenger side, the rear seats and the rear passenger side trim so you can run the feed.
The controller that comes with the kit takes a pressure feed from the engine so as it can determine when to start pumping and the controller is then wired in at the front
and the necessary wires run to the pump in the boot. This wiring runs underneath the drivers side kick panel and across the rear bench underneath the carpet.
Theres a small LED between the a Pillar and the dash that glows when your using WMI and it gets brighter as the pump flows more with increased boost. I also has other flash sequences that tell you different things like you've run out or theres a problem.
Ah right. I thought you'd managed to mount the bottle the other side of the access panel out of sight. That would have been impressive
Thanks for the extra info though Dane. I'm looking at places to mount a bottle for an intercooler spray.
No worries dudeson
If you're happy to loose the sub etc. It'll go in I reckon. But it would be trickier to fill.
Or if you don't mind loosing your spare wheel I think tufftys thinking about getting an ally tank put in place of his.
Are you just planning on using water??? Won't that freeze in the winter?
there seems to be a SACHs paddle drive plate here... Wonder why thats been ordered
Because danes a hooligan for drag racing
Fecking yes mate! I love it when people deliver on time!
Drag racing is addictive, you need to do at least 2 to get over the nerves!
And then at least 2 crates of lager to get over the cost of a new clutch? Lol
its coming apart...
not enjoying the process..
Sorry about that
A very blued flywheel
Friction plate, which does'nt show in the picture but is thinner on the outer edge than the inner edge..
clucth cover plate, blue hot spotted like flywheel but with sligth wear ridge on outer edge
whilst it was coming apart.. flywheel being removed
Cleaned gbox, degreased and pressure washed - very Very corroded (looks like box case may have come from fire damaged car?)
Cleaned, degreased & pressure washed subframe

Indeed. New Sachs paddle, LUK pressure plate and flywheel going back in.
There will be a brand new LUK friction plate if anyone wants to buy it off Dane when this is done.
Bill, how do you find the wear with the Sachs paddle?
I was a bit put off of paddle clutches after i baught a AEB motor last year which had a 15k old single mass flywheel and paddle clutch fitted, and found both the flywheel and pressure plate had pretty serious lips on them, somewhere in the region of 0.5mm on both.
I think Mark ran the same clutch for a short while, and his showed similar wear when he removed it.
I dont think kit i ended up with was a sachs paddle though, it had a sachs cover plate, but the paddle itself was unbranded.
but yes VERY expensive and a pain in the ass.
Nice of the people who fitted the box to have noticed when we could of done something about it.
Tufftys running this set up aragorn and he seems happy thus far and I'm happy to follow suit
Thanks for the pics Bill
Looking good Dane, not far now... Hopefully no more set backs so i can get my car in to Bills at some point this century
