    @Tj 0785 yes mate that was me aking it and got a comment with that picture you have posted there I think they where £70 for that
    . I was hoping to just get the standard fittings instead of upgraded ones.
    I'll have a look for someone breaking one and see if they even have the whole evap can and fittings.

    Got my radio wired in today with the bluetooth module and gps antenna and microphone. Makes the interior a bit more modern looking 20200521_171100.jpg Also got my heaters sorted they are now working as they should. It was the lead going into the heater matrix one of the wires had a split in it. New wire on it and now cold air is working again. Only took 3 different garages to eventually find the problem.

    @S3AMJ I'm well happy with it it only took over a year and half to get it all fitted and working but im more happy I got the heaters fixed. It was really starting to do my head in that no garage could find the problem and always had to have the window down cause the car got to warm

    My map cd for the nav unit is a 2015 version. Can I just order a genuine 2019 or a 2020 one and put it in without having any problems?

    Should fit on mate, you got brembo’s ok the front? From memory I think you need to run 10mm spacers for clearance. Don’t quote me on that.

    When I had them on my car I had 10mm front and 20mm rear.

    Would anyone know the part number for the coil pack harness?
    I asked for a replacement one on the parts request here but they said it cant be replaced the old one would just need repaired.
    I thought I'd read on here that someone else had replaced theres.

    See the people that are using the colour mfa. See when you do the acceleration on it is the max power from the engine or the wheels? Screenshot_20200919-231152_Gallery.jpg

    Is the r32 front and rear arb a good upgrade to do or would putting in powerflex bushes into the standard arb do a good enough job?

    I swapped out my rear ARB for an R32 with black series powerflex bushes. Difference was day and night. I know a few run the front R32 ARB’s and have said it’s made a real difference too. Depends what your planning for the car mate..... the odd track day or just B road mania haha. I bought my ARB through parts request and it was about £120 delivered back then. Bushes were around £45.

    It wont see any track days just the odd spirited drive. My front one at the minute needs the bushes done so if there is a upgrade over standard ones with powerflex bushes I'll go with that.
    How do you find the black series bushes for driving normal roads @S3AMJ
    I'll put a request in and see what price they are now if not I'll keep an eye out on fb for a 2nd hand one and change the bushes in it.

    The only black series bushes I’ve got on the car at the moment are the rear ARB bushes to be fair, I will eventually do all the bushes, but I’ll do some research and find out which is best where

    BIGGER REAR ANTI ROLL BAR IS A MUST!! you probably don’t get the full benefit of the upgrade using it on road but what a difference it makes it actually makes the car enjoyable to drive and more sportier and dangerous I’m so glad I did it, mine was a eibach kit off demon tweeks which was trumpy as I bought front and back but I didn’t fit the front as I like it how it is I’d like to drive someone’s car with the r32 rear to see the difference with mine... maybe big turbo boy (AMJ) might let me try his one day

    So a wee update,I have booked my car in with Bill for the 14th December to get my 2 nozzle meth kit,na cams and ignitron ecu fitted. Was going to get 3 switchable maps but on thinking more on it I think I'll just get 2 maps.
    A full race map with everything the car can give and meth depending and a map for just normal day driving.

    That’s awesome news dude! Hopefully my car should be built by then.... I’ll need to get mine run in and mapped before it’s MOT is due around then. Might pop over and meet up if this lockdown doesn’t extend

    That would be good mate to finally meet you after years on here and see this motor you got built.
    Hopefully the lockdown over there doesn't get to many more restrictions so it doesn't affect me to much getting home again lol

    Yeah fingers crossed, there are rumours of extending it... but I think they’ll just be more strict with opening/closing times of some businesses. Time will tell.

    Either way I’ll see where I am and will try and have a proper catch up with you.

    So a we bit of excitement today after travelling since 9:30 last night.Dropped my car of a Bill's and had a wee chat and a brew.
    1st time I've spoke to him other than emails and maybe once on the phone. Just wish mechanics near me at home where as nice to talk to and explained things like he did or even where to do this kind of work. Top bloke and what a set up he has for the dyno. 20201214_114850.jpg

    Got a email from Bill this afternoon to say that its running 357.9hp at 1.4 bar without meth at the minute.
    He said that it's at 1.4 bar at the minute with more to come so was just wondering how much more can it be pushed up to bar wise. I have asked him this in a email back but I dont expect a reply until after xmas but my curiosity has got me thinking of how much more.

    Sounds very promising mate! He will potentially take it to 1.8 bar all being well, that’s about the safe limits of the turbo. Things start getting very hot around there. I’d put money on you getting between 370-378bhp Maybe more who knows with meth.

    @S3AMJ I got a reply (which I was expecting as it was xmas) and he said he will take it to 1.75 bar as long as the boost keeps rising aswell.
    The fuel lets it down a bit I think as we only get 97 ron here.
    @Brad1011 it is running the k04-380 hybrid turbo package from badger 5.
    I got myself a r32 rear anti roll bar to go on when I'm doing the suspension upgrades.
    This is how hot it gets in there FB_IMG_1608837491051.jpg FB_IMG_1608837496734.jpg
