    Yeah had a few issues with clutch and flywheel that i got from slowcoach3 as soon as i started stating problems to him he would not write back when he was writing straight back everytime i wrote to him so im pretty sure he knew there was a problem with it. So i endend up buying a brand new VR6 carbon kevlar clutch and L&B G60 flywheel went straight in no problems and feels great revs up alot quicker will be changing the exhaust to 3" all the way through and still need to hunt down some 440cc green top bosch injectors then will be off for the map

    Been a little while since i have updated this thread so thought it was about time. The last part i replaced was the dog bone bush with the yellow poly bush and what a difference front end feels alot more solid cant really give it the beans at the moment as i have not had it mapped but you can defently feel the difference pulling away, changing gear and going round corners.

    The main reason i havent done much recently is because i been waiting for a company in America to get there 3" exhaust systems back in stock but there taking ages so i thought i would take all the wheels off and give them a bit of a refirb as i kirbed them pretty bad all round the rim on one side on the way back from giving a mate a lift to work at portishead.

    Took all 4 wheels off gave them a clean and sanded them down. Next added a bit of filler and sanded again gave them a coat of primer then a coat of satin black just need to lacquer them now. Forgot to take pics before of the damaged wheels and only took one picture of the first coat of black but will take more when there back on the car.

    Little update from before of the Inter cooler brackets i had welded on. The front bumper has never fit properly since i have uprated all the intercooler pipes to 2.5" so took it off and shaved it down a bit and took some pics of the intercooler brackets.

    I aslo had a few problems with my cold side induction intake where it was so close to the front bumper. On really wet rainy days it would suck up water and had the car cut out on me once so had to be changed to one that would sit a little higher.

    My 3" Exhaust system eventually turned up after 3 weeks of waiting and £30s worth of custom charges from America but was still well worth it for £250 all in considering i dont even need the de cat and down pipe which will be up for sale soon.

    Nice one on the exhaust mate As I said when i showed you, you'll love it, for the rediculous price, it fits really well, and sounds fantastic too!

    I like that lower strut brace, where was that from? and how much? I'm still get to get round to fitting my upper one that I've had for 3 years! haha.

    Just received my new tail pipe for the exhaust that i bought. It did come with a tail pipe but it was rolled in and i thought it looked too small didnt want any thing too big but just slightly bigger so ordered a 3" rolled out tail pipe that i think will look alot better.

    [IMG][/IMG]

    New rolled out tail pipe (on the left) and the old rolled in tail pipe (on the right) both 3".

    Cool man, looks good. Mine needs something like that too. I cut the inward roll off mine, but it looks very plain at the moment.

    Got round to have the outward rolled tailpipe installed yesterday was a bit of a mission to line up think its where i got a bodykit on mine. Just had to cut the brackets off and re weld in the right place then make sure it lined up then welded the outward rolled tip in place.
