    Oh jesus, before you know it, it'll be in for rods with you bill LOL! Rods, uprated bearings, some good honing, new everything, AGU head fully rebuilt with supertech valves and springs, cams, badger 5 custom inlet mani, k04-64 with all the custom stuff with it, WMI, wideband conversion (so I can have ALS)... see what you got me into now!?! Saving money now.

    Well today has been eventful!! Went out and tried to follow an Aston Martin V12 Vantage S! Sounds awesome until my car lost all power! At first I thought it was the maf, so got another one from GSF ( genuine one) but no good! Finally after bill sent me many many messages helping me, I found it was the turbo outlet pipe! It had just burst!! Here's some pics:


    image.jpg

    It was a creation motorsports outlet pipe so stay away from them! I've learnt my lesson and sticking to OEM! I have to say thank you to bill! He helped me so much! Anything i can do for you, just ask :) and thanks to Niki as well for offering me a maf when I thought mine was shot! That was a very kind gesture!

    Red forge one and some decent heat shielding will sort you out.

    Haha was that on Tuesday? I had to go for a MOT and forgot to warm the cat up! ;) where was you?

    Joe - it's either full throttle or no throttle ;)

    And yeah Nick this actuator made a mile of difference! Couple that and the way bill mapped it, its really pokey! But it'll soon be changed once I see the outcome of your beast! :)

    Question Mr G, what downpipe have you got? if its relentless port it, honestly you will see a big improvement, you will see a definitive soot ring when you took the old turbo off....that is your brick wall...3" my ass more like 2.75

    Haha definitely! Fifth gear when my car was "standard" lol! But lets hope the build goes smoothly, have lots to test one being Andrews haldex mod which I will be taking pics on Monday for! The cars done 192k on its original turbo, almost 60k on its current clutch, 10k being on stage 2 and it's been perfect! I have another gearbox going in as this one was abit loose feeling.. Also have a new haldex going in as mine isn't the best atm, fronts keep spinning and the fluid won't drain! Must be blocked up but I'm going to dissect the old one to see what's inside, the kind of wear its had and if I can mod it :cool:

    looks like this is going from being a super nice and slick decent st2 car, to something that's going to be really quite super bad-ass instead!

    Very much looking forward to this Gops, being done properly for sure!
