    Rothers S3 Build Tread.

    Forge, FMI, Forge DV, Badger TIP, K&N Air filter, 2.0lt coil packs, full service etc. Mapped at Sage 2 and would have easily reached 300 if i had put a cone filter on and it wasn't being restricted a by a old collapse breather pipe. All in all happy with the results.

    A little re-routing of the inter cooler pipework and the fitting of the Badger 5 TIP to the OEM air box. The air box needed a little modifying by cutting off the locating lug to allow for a steeper angle for the air box to marry up to the inlet pipe.

    Off with the head. The little issue of a small puff of blue smoke upon start up would seem to be from the valve stem seals. Cylinders 1 & 4 seem to be the culprits.

    Did this same mod the other day plus plugs. Not sure if it has made any difference other than tidying the engine bay up.
