    That's an amazing amount of hp to gain from just adding the inlet cam, from that I'm guessing you have a bt build.
    I'm only running a k04 hybrid so I wont see anywhere near that kind of gain but I'm interested to see how it performs.

    Yes it's a G25-660 , made 460bhp on Bills dyno without the cam . The extra duration and lift seems to help power at the top end of the rev range.

    Installed a new set of Bi xenon's a few weeks back......H1 mini projectors & 5000k xenons seems to of done the trick with light output. Front end looks fresher, Still to have the lights levelled properly but it's passable for me atm.

    Had bit of a braking issue as well recently, some serious brake juddering going on. Had the m-tec discs inspected & skimmed 1.1mm from them to get them back in line......in no time they had me reenacting a fighter pilot trying to pull a plane out of a dive scene in Hollywood movie they were that bad! Not knowing what had caused them to be so bad I took a chance & fitted a pair of Brembo discs & so far so good no issues.

    Also whilst the bumper was off to fit the new headlights I took the time to sort out the panel gap issue I was having on the o/s/f wheel arch where the bumper hooks over & into the wheel arch liner. The little tab that hooks over had split & the seam down the inside of the bumper was coming away on both sides, if you've seen this seam it's a weak point in my opinion as theres no real meat to it.
    I didn't get any pics as I just got stuck in but I've plastic welded along the whole seam on both sides of the bumper, it's now stronger than when it left the factory & for the 1st time since owning the car I have a decent panel gap. 20200312_141348_resized.jpg

    Looking really good mate. One of the best mods I did was change the headlights! Since I changed my suspension they’ve been pointing down. Need to have a look see what my auto headlight adjusters are doing. I had a garage for the springs......

    Very clean car

    It's definitely worth while, I had a ballast burn out & bought a 2nd hand one to replace it but then decided to just entirely replace the lot as the originals arent the best to start with.

    Hopefully they've not busted the arm for the auto leveling, not the worst fix though if that's case

    Yassssssss! Nice one, welcome to the club mate.

    Oh I hope they’ve not broken an arm as well! I usually try and work on my car but with not having the time and haven’t used this garage before...... I’m sure they wouldn’t have told me if they had.

    It's hard to find a garage you can trust mate especially the 1st time you use them, the industry has gotten such a bad name!.......

    Managed to get the ignitron installed.....not being the most computer savvy person I had bit of a faff installing the correct USB drivers but once that was sorted it started up 1st turn & drove pretty well. 20200320_145805_resized.jpg

    Had planned to try & learn a basic level of understanding so I could give it a go but tbh I dont feel confident enough to attempt it as it could be a costly error!
