    now iv been having **** with my current universal oil catch tank. Went to my mate dusty with some ideas and we were going to build one, but instead he just gave me his one off his vw caddy that he is rebuilding so win for me!

    [​IMG]

    its baffled and sumped with 2 vent ports
    has a port for block and head

    [​IMG]

    made a hole in my tip and threaded a piece to connect a hose

    time for a little update lol

    got a new coil pack harness from Ash at Goldwagen delarey thanks bud

    then myself and my mate Wes got cracking on it. The harnes was in absolutely shocking condition, every now and again i would get a misfire until i touch it or move it around so it was time.

    i never took much pictures as i forgot to lol
    but before

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    WOTbox wires

    [​IMG]

    snipped the harness as far in as possible

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    all done and working

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    then next mod, my mate dyl is selling his car so he asked if i wanted to swap his IE adapters and fsi coils for the original coils! i would have been stupid to say no lol thanks dyl

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    i dont notice a difference from the original coils to the fsi coils but o well

    hey guys! happy new year

    so got leave this week and did a few things on the car.

    did complete service with motul oils and flushed my water system out to try the MOCOOL anit-freeze. now every fluid in my car is motul, engine oil, box oil, brake fluid and anti-freeze

    then i decided to clean up the boot and move the amps to the rear 1/4 panels

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    thanks to wes for helping me out.

    then i wanted to see how nice the bottle would look in my boot lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    but took it out and put my sub in instead lol

    [​IMG]

    then next up was finish my intake, fit my K&N filter and make a heat shield (thanks to Wikus from Goldwagen delarey )


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then put more stickers on lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    went to yoshi to set my meth and to do some logs and fine tuning. at the moment my current setup saw my intake temps go -2' below ambient temp so thats a win for me so far especially that it was 35' yesterday

    one day ill get a dyno reading and see what power im making

    so bad luck yesterday not much but still bad luck!
    left rear wheel bearing decided to give up on me yesterday so had to limp it home, hopefully ashley will be bringing one home for me tonight and will swap it over.

    on another note i might be doing a half a cage layout this week.
    Reason for half a cage is:

    1: my car is going to be used as a test car
    2: i do alot of track day events and the reason i dont want a full cage is the car is a daily and as prawn said for full cage you will need to drive with a helmet so you dont crack your head open if something goes wrong.
    3: and a bonus i wont be getting people asking me for lifts lol

    any ideas and input?

    Hi MIGGZ

    Glad you seem to have changed your mind about selling "Kratos".
    The amount of work you have done to it would be sad to let it go....
    The photo shoot you talking about ,is it the VW club one?
