    Here are a few more pics from today
    Found a split breather hose under the intake mani which i think could have been the cause of my lumpy idle.

    Pic of my boot at the moment with all my parts and tools sitting in it waiting to be put back together.

    Here is my new powder coated rocker and inlet mani :)

    I confused with the hex bolts though as i had three sets left and mixed up in different lengths, i have some short and then two sets of long and i cant remember which length hold in the coil packs, never mind :)

    If any one can enlighten me then please do.

    Have you got any prices yet for your powder coating ?

    No news on the GBs yet just testing the water i want to get the best deal arround not just fo with who ever sais they can do it.

    And i have completely forgotten about nology i spent way to much so far :) and i still have the coilovers, wheels, bumpers, skirts, re-spray, brakes, turbo back exhaust to do yet :)

    Nop, spent that much on parts alone i dont really have much left ill have to get it done later.

    no probs mate, that works for me in away i can save up abit especially and if you got a bunch of GBs going might be able to put my name down for ALL! lol :arco:


    wow, u still got alot of big things to get, i think the only big things i need are the injectors, CAT, maybe a full system. and all exterior mods which will come much later.

    ive got some Koni sports springs 35mm or 40mm cant remember all 4 brand new. your welcome to them you can stick them on until you get your coilovers?

    It came with the hoses that i got, its just normal vacuum pipe i think the majority are all the same size when you ask for it.

    Markey, did you get hit with any nasty import taxes in the end, regarding the turbo?

    Keep up the good work
