    dont think ill be doing too much really. new catback maybe and a CAI. single 3 inch sounds good, but its too loud. i think its cammed already, so ill tune it as much as i can, mainly for cruising economy. apart from that, ill just keep it serviced. i think the gearbox might need a service soon, but the diff feels really good.

    atleast she isnt driving a ford around like my missus...!!!

    nice pickup tho! has it got the knock sensor / 185i chip?

    also check the chassis number man, it will tell u if it was originally a 6 or 8!

    will have to check the chip. id assume it does, or else its got one to suit a cam, because i think its cammed.
    engine covers are back on the right way. and i picked it up last night

    manual is good, but really took some getting used to. never driven a 5L or a T5 before. stalled it a few times. sure was fun in peak hour traffic in town, sitting at the lights hoping not to stall it haha.
