    Engine mounts will be a MUST HAVE given how close the DP is to the Prop. There is a small 2mm gap:

    nice, thanks for that Bill!

    I get paid in a week so I'll get the mounts sorted - what do you recommend?

    Westle the WM tank and pump will be going in the boot. The tank will be mounted on the fairly useless right handside with the pump beneath. We did contemplate putting it in the spare wheel well, but I'd rather keep the spare.

    It lives! Video to come when Im home,

    it sounds mint! It's a Milltek with the special tail pipes.

    Bill reckons it's worth up rating all mounts, so I'll do that - next month lol

    Keeping up my rep I see!

    Notice how Dane isn't worried, maybe because he's met me and realises I'm not as weird as I am on the forum :blush:

    I'm more than happy to part with my hard earned dollar in this case lol

    We can go for a quick spin if you like, I am quite curious to see how the exhaust behaves at cruising speeds too
