Sounds awesome mate
Sounds awesome mate
Cheers mate. Sounds better in the flesh, and you get a nice pop on the overrun. I think with a less restrictive downpipe it'd shoot flames :rockwoot:
Holy glow batman! Lick it, i dare you!:p haha
Looking good Reesy. You going to cage it? or just see how it goes?
So, when can we expect to see this tip on a track :whistle2:
Stops unbelievably well for a car with 312's. It might not be too comfortable after a long track session but stops far better then any 312 car I've been in. Don't know what fluid it has in or what discs or pads it has.
The braided lines and Ferodo pads still need to go on, and I'm sure their is some carplan brake fluid at the back of Ben's workshop!
As long as this is faster then Jardo's car, I'm happy.:superman:
it also blew a boost pipe tonight on the Fmic piping, cheap clamps ftl (ran out of high grips)
I really need to crack on with my Mk2, should hopefully be joining you lot out on track:racer:
How heavy are the wheels? Some light weight wheels would be good, to reduce unsprung mass and slightly aid in acceleration. Old wheels can be sold to help recoup costs too
Not sure on the wheels. They are aftermarket with thin spokes, but they are 18's so won't be really light. I have a set of bad boy 16's that just need tyres, but they are OEM so weigh more then they should. To be honest, it doesn't need masses of help accelerating anywhere, but I'm sure this will change once we got off the country lanes and onto the track.
3 weeks since an update? Where you at with it now?
Only an AGU, Brute rods, new rings, head refurb but the turbo is a bit left field/an experiment. I'm fitting a TD05HR 16G6 10.5T off a Mitsi Evo 8 along with homemade top mount tubular mani and 3 inch downpipe. So ought to be fun.
Looking forward to the updates fella
Interesting side note. Clutch was slipping with the Hybrid on the car, but not with the K04. Not going to complain though!
i follow both your builds with great interest!
good to see new ideas and new products pushed on cars like this.
this DEFINITELY needs 4wd with all that power! The boys in the 8L forum said it's loads better :(
So it's been a very long time since this was updated.
The car hasn't really moved unfortunately, what with Christmas and both our cars needing tax, taxing the Leon wasn't a priority. Car still isn't taxed so it's not out on the road at the moment, but it's been getting sorted in preperation.
Bearing in mind this shape Leon are known for their ability to let water in to the car, leaving this parked up over winter, outside, wasn't ideal. Car was very damp inside with a small lake in the passenger foot well, and the weep holes in the rear foot wells doing there best to get rid of the water. Car has been inside for a few days now and is a lot dryer so we got to work.
CM Tip was the first thing to go on:
Next up was the tow strap.
Then we commenced with stickers, hoping to have gained at least 10bhp between all of them.
Nice work lads... There's about 60bhp worth of stickers there!
