Right, so I purchased this car from a fellow Uksaab'er :)

Couldn't be happier with it, There are a few mods on the way (exhaust and stage 2 map will be first up)

Here's a couple of pictures after the 480 mile drive from Cambridgeshire :)

Picked up some millers oil, new filters and some new plugs from work today and it's all been changed. I do plan on changing the gearbox oil but unsure of the procedure (I know the procedure uses a lot of oil though) and what oil to use....I did think millers TRX stuff as I can get that from work...that or comma :lol:

Oh my lord, how much power on that dyno run, yikes, it was quick enough in stock trim!

Nice job with the paint work (how shiney can it get, :lol: ), I like the harbour picks.

I don't know what I'm going to do with the front yet...probably not a lot as I like it as is :lol:

It's gonna be going into bodyshop at somepoint to get the front bumper/doors/bootlid/spoiler all done so it'll be even more shiney :p

It is pretty brisk at the moment, yes :P

Hey buddy,

Without trying to sound like a funnyf*ker any possibility of a good photo of the induction kit/airbox? Tried fitting one on mine the other night and it refused to fit!

Cheers

very nice motor,miss mine lots of fun....

get your self a heat shield made for the air filter i made one and had a cold air pipe running up from the front grill....

stage 2 was fun to say the least do a double piggy ARB and get your self a 6 point sub frame brace the handling will be loads better....
good luck with the project.....

Cheers :)

And aye, will get a good pic of the filter....it's literally just on and tightened with a jubilee then cable tied up to clear the aux belt. I'll be doing it properly with a 90 degree bend and brackets soon though.

Been looking at handling options also, 6 point brace is on the list after bigger brakes etc :)

It was easy to do, flat surface is a doddle. Curves are a pain.

I'm not actually sure tbh, it's all standard hardware just a slightly more aggresive stage 2 map, I was expecting 230-240 at the fly but got that at the wheels....Only other things were I gave it the best chance i'e full tank of V power and ECU reset before dyno
