    they are a little already you just cant really see in the pic, when i first had the exhaust fitted i asked for it higher but they said that they couldnt fit them any higher because it would be a fire hazard

    ive been looking at clutch kits for my car, ive been quoted £1020 for a helix ceramic paddle clutch, single mass fly wheel, pressure plate and release bearing. i spoke to C G Motorsport they only supply duel mass with there clutch kits so im looking for a single mass kit that can handle 350/400+bhp (for when i do internals) any info or reviews of your clutch kits would be apprieciated.....................

    It's not so much bhp, but torque that kills clutches Don,
    What torque is the beast producing?

    Could always speak to Alex at Backdraft again and ask his opinion as his old Ibiza was 400bhp so could go for similar spec stuff depending on money

    I might call them but I had a bit of a falling out with them when my turbo worked itself loose from the manifold. They stripped the turbo down to get to the bolts when they put it back together and started it up it started smoking really bad! One of the sills had gone on the turbo !!! They tried saying they had nothing to do with it Yet when I drove it up to them it was fine I was just loosing pressure cos the mani/turbo bolts were loose. Cost me £550 for a new turbo and now my air/fuel gauge is knackered and my sports cat.

    Maybe just unlucky tbh. Alex is one of my good mates and my gf`s best mate and he`s not the sort to do a half arsed job or fob people off.

    Ah that might be why then lol. Steve maybe? cant remember for sure.

    The car looks great all stripped out. I still love those seats. Im glad its still going well. How is the family?

    That apprentice (Curtis) doesnt work for us anymore. He actually builds the new Mclarren GT3 cars now! It would be great to see you and the car back up at the shop sometime.

    This is one awesome project! You're tempting me to grab another 8l and strip it down for the track. Too bad they're next to impossible to buy around here.
