    Good call on the fire extinguisher...when you start modifying cars or decide to do some track work it's just peace of mind..Ive had one for many years, I put mine behind the passenger seat below the back seat, mounts onto the lower seat bracket bolt..still easy to reach..

    I used some Blackfire All Metal Sealant :-)

    So yesterday it went off for tuning. Good and bad results haha! A high flow fuel pump was fitted and then a boost leak was done, all my work paid off and the boost leak hose popped off cause there were no leaks in the system haha! Onto the dyno it went!

    Due to the injectors not arriving at the tuners in time and my work commitments the mapping had to be carried out without them. On the first power run they informed me that the injectors were already maxed outÖ ****s sake ahaha! Mapping was continued but with a 5500rpm limit, a bit annoying but at least I could drive it again in the knowledge Iím not doing any damage. Anyway down to figures, it made 313hp this was with the injectors maxed out, revving to 5.5k and no boost added with the boost controller! The tuner was sure it could easily make 400hp which Iím very pleased with, it is booked in again for beginning of January to have the rest of the work carried out. Iím just happy to have it back again right now, still feels quick as it is haha!

    I better update this as it’s been a while!

    After getting it back from mapping I just enjoyed actually driving it for a bit. Even with a 5500rpm limit it was still fun! Met up with my mate with a MK2 Escort and a 430hp MR2 haha!

    I noticed the clutch was starting to slip so that got swapped out with the flywheel and slave cylinder!

    Aero catches were then fitted as I was scared of the bonnet wobble on the motorway haha!

    It made 365.1 at the fly and 310 at the wheels. Safe to say it’s pretty scary, well for me at least! Never owned anything this quick haha!

    Day after mapping the Works came off and split down for a refurb whilst I was out of the country with work! Can’t wait to get them back! It’s sitting on manky Lexus wheels currently haha!

    The Works came back from having the lips polished and centres powder coated. I re-assembled the wheels ready for the new tyres to be fitted.

    I went for some AD08s in 235/40/18 on the front and a 255/40/18 on the rear.

    This looks awesome now! I was chatting to the seller of this before I bought my own but decided against it. I just got a bad impression. I'm glad it's in good hands though and the work you have done is spot on!
