    So as for my experience with motul 660.... I will not use any other fluid again!
    Nice Miggz! Thanks for the review... I will look into doing that too...

    What is it with people painting their wheels garish colors? I just don't see it. I'd go for anthracite or something. It looks great on white cars.

    Are they RE-55s? You going to use them on the road? Loud I bet?

    Its only for track sam, won't use them on road that's why I have the 18s, but I'm sure they would be very loud driving.

    Its just for the fun of it I love bright colours

    so iv come to the conclusion that i might have a tyre and rim obsession..... maybe a little one











    lol and now to the serious business

    my VVT has been giving some poo for a while and was to lazy to change it, yesterday i decided that its now or never lol.
    i removed it and refitted it, was very easy, never took pics as i was to dirty to hold the phone lol

    i took my bumper off as i wanted to see the best route for the brake cooling and found some stuff ups!
    Map sensor and WMI nozzle was leaking and found a crack on my TB pipe and fixed that to









    the line for the cooling was a fail as i ran out of time after fixing everything else. im going to try look thru Prawns thread and see how he has done it

    It looks like it but it could also be that I have not checked it since motor was done so don't know?

    Will strip bumper off again next week and see again! Also I have a nice crack on downpipe so will have to strip that off and get it welded next week

    for the wmi, just weld a alloy 1/8npt bung in there, then you can screw it in.

    or do it budget like me and use epoxy chemical metal to seal it lol
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    Never thought of welding something there? But it was not leaking where the boost pipe meets the jet, it was leaking where the jet joins on the nozzle so re sealed it using that goop stuff that comes with the kit

    For the bung, I welded a small piece of 4mm aluminium sheet to the IC pipe, drilled and tapped it with a 1/8 npt tap. Then used some thread sealant to make sure its boost and liquid leak free.
    i think if you use a proper bung it might be too long and when you thread the nozzle into it, the nozzle won't poke out the end of the bung. This might destroy the spray pattern of the nozzle and lose the atomisation of the mixture.
    i guess you would need a very low profile bung.

    so been doing some homework on maybe considering Hybrid. As the turbo needs a refurb might as well consider it?

    been reading Beachbuggy's thread

    Hybrid turbocharger k04 build

    So informant and made it very easy to see whats involved in the process. Iv msged Beachbuggy to find out the prices on the wheels and see where i can get them will just wait for his reply.

    on another note...

    Been thinking last week maybe i should consider doing half a cage at the rear, I KNOW IT GIVES NO SUPPORT TO THE CHASSIS, but thinking of more on the lines i roll the car (god forbid) that myself and passenger will be safer.
