    Interesting about the Hydrogen Carbon clean... I have a small camera that I am planning on shoving down my intake to look at my intake valves as I'm nearly at 90K miles now and I'm sure a lot of carbon has collected on the valves.

    Would be interesting to see if it has visibly/noticeably cleaned the intake valves as I would consider this before looking down the manual carbon clean route! I'm just a little dubious that these additives and chemical's that claim to clean actually do...

    Some photos of the recent exhaust work thanks to Jabbasport. First two photos show the new race cat location under the car and the last photo shows the restrictive cat pipes (outer two) and their replacement. Wonderful sound now with Capristo valves open :)

    Re the car perhaps one or two more tweaks to come. In terms of power/torque the biggie was the water/meth kit to keep everything nice and cool, the rest now are just creeping it up a bit here and there.

    The wrap is showing signs of wear on the roof so need to freshen that up soon - undecided what to do with that at the moment re design/colour.
