    Mine's set at 7K dude. I have 4 lights though. Blues at 6400, 6600, and 6800, then a final red at 7000.]

    Odd that you find a delay on your N75 switch too! On mine it's absolutely isntant. I can hit the switch mid way through a 3rd gear pull and the boost will happily jump up instantly from 1 bar to 1.5 and you feel a really shove as it throws in another ~60bhp.

    Car's looking good dude!

    Hay. hows it going.?
    See u grafting hard on ur car, looks great bud.

    So ive fitted my fmic and boost pipes. together with a forge007 spliter dv.
    car feels awsum now shot for the advice.
    Im thinking of fitting a water-meth kit, but would like to find out if its necessary to the car mapped for it?
    also is it safe running water-meth?

    hey bud thank you.

    you dont need to map for the wmi and yes it is safe as long as done properly and you dont over spray causing hydrolock

    On a serious note.....

    There might be a very high chance that Kratos will be getting most performance parts stripped and map tuned down for daily use to make space for a new project/track toy......

    watch this space for more to follow....maybe

    You said - the whole idea of this car is to have a little bit of everything
    so it needs to be fast but economical and reliable, if i want to go on track day it must handle it and be quick, if i want to go on holiday i must just get in and drive, it also needs to be a show stopper and look pretty lol
    any way thanks for viewing guys

    +1 same, had ladders and tools to cut down trees in mine the weekend, then the following evening boosting down the country lanes to a friends etc, Subtle'ish sporty power yet practical,

    I like the fact yours is rare'ish White btw & great position for them dials :encouragement:

    Very true. I've seen so many dodgy mechanics. I only let them touch my car if I can stay and watch the whole process. No matter how long it takes.

    Yeah i found out a couple of months ago the garage I used to build my motor last year Feb used a 2nd block and 2nd hand pistons and rings from another motor and that's prob why I was having such issues with sump compression

    That's what put me off modding my car for a long time, never trusted anyone around these parts, lucky I have recently met some good guys that have the know how and the passion, you the man...MIGGZ. Pity I don't stay closer, would have been "there like a bear" to help you
