    What was next on the list rich? New ARB's? Surely the spare 500 quid could be put to good use! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Well the extra means my credit card bill will be 500 less! which means very little going on it which is nice! NExt thing to sort out is traction control. Its installed but i need to get it all calibrated and suited to the characterisitcs of the car, then i think i will have to do the clutch, flywheel and LSD which will be a major cost, then concentrate on the suspension. I suspect it will be completed fully by spring next year... Then the next stage of engine work will start [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    hahahahahaha...Well i can guarantee i will get used to the power by then. at which time it will be time to add a bit more to it... Mind you the drivetrain will be needing some upgrading too.

    Re: Part 2 - IHI Roller bearing turbo

    It can be.
    I'm a few weeks ahead of rich, and it's docile when you want it to be and oh my god fast the rest of the time. No issues with traction, Just a big grin. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] The factory asr works very well with the lsd and extra power in first, and then once in second any ASR intervention stops.


    And it's a company car and I do 25K a year including carting customers around. I usually get a 'what the fcuk is in this when I take pasangers that don't know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    As JW says,

    It can be, and it is! Altoough i do a daily total of 14 miles so aint all bad really. Also means i can get away with mileage limited insurance making a worthwhile saving!

    Re: Part 2 - IHI Roller bearing turbo

    Rich, the wait will be worth it mate, i also think next on your list should be an LSD as it is certainly worth the cash having driven JW's last weekend, much better turn in. We'll all have to take a trip to Bruntingthorpe for a blat with the cars when yours is done! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Ed,

    Sounds like a good plan! Think the clutch will DEFINATELY be done soon. Should last me til early next year then i can sort out the LSD one time...

    As for the wait, its certainly going to be worth it! Really cant wait! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]

    running fine mate. no dtc's, and the fuelings now spot on. just need a bit more boost now (now up to 1.25bar). Don't want to push it any further until mitch is on the same continent. Mapping via email's all wel and good, but I don't want to push it too hard.

    Fair enough mate, probably best to wait till he is back before really going for it. We'll have to do another comparison once it's done. Hopefully putting the diff in mine this weekend.

    Re: Part 2 - IHI Roller bearing turbo

    @ James M
    performance figures? havent done any timed runs,but car is comparable to M-Coupe,E46 M3 or std RS4.

    0-60 supposed to be 4.9 to 60

    the car is proper quick

    @ s8n

    I'm loathe to strip such a highly developed and sorted car,also I no longer have most of the standard parts.I'm not sure just how interested you'd be in any of my parts,considering how A. they'd need to be shipped from Ireland to you,B. they'd be expensive C. You only took about 6 months to eventually buy brakes,god knows how long it would take you to make your mind up when presented with the parts list from my car [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Nope,its staying together for the moment,to be honest,my biggest problem with selling the car is getting people to believe the bhp and performance figures,once they get a run in the car they're converted,but getting them that far is a tough one [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Cars like mine generally take a while to sell over here,its a very small market.

    Right,

    Well spoke to AmD on tuesday and some stuff was taking a little longer than expected but again no major problems (so big deal really)... was away yesterday so have not yet heard anything so will give them a call at lunch time to get the latest... With any luck tonight is the night! Im not going to hold my breath tho just in case there are any problems while doing the power runs.
