    Thanks guys. The clutch kit only arrived at 3 today so they did a bit of light throttle tuning, fried the stock clutch and started fitting the NPC job - I hope to have it back tomorrow afternoon.

    goodluck fitting that lol i bought one for my car as i had an oil temp and pressure gauge and was an absolute pain to fit especially cause of the large pressure sender.

    It's not hard, I have a speedflow fitting that'll fit straight into that port, then I'll just come up in braided hose till I have some room to move. You're right though - there's **** all room for anything down there.

    Thanks mate, I'd suggest you have a go of an NA 6L before you go whacking a turbo on one - they're a handful as it is.
    Still haven't got mine back. I decided to get the manifolds ceramic coated and they've been delaying delivery for a week now...

    The manifolds arrived yesterday along with the dump pipe and exhaust housing. BPS fitted it all up again today

    All I can say is MOTHER OF GOD! In other news after a hard 3 hour drive the engine bay was actually cooler than what it used to be with just the extractors - obviously the ceramic coating and turbo beanie are doing their job.

    Oh okay then. My cam is an isky 218/232. I had it fitted at bayside performance services in Cleveland (Brisbane) where I get all of my work done. They did the valve springs at the same time, and didn't bother with the timing chain.

    No lower than usual. It's tucked up under the front bar.

    Ah my mistake looked lower without the bumper on. Very impressive ride to say the least.
    So how do you keep power to the ground without frying the tyres? :p

    Thanks boss, it's not that hard to keep on the road - with the E-Boost I can set the power at the wheels via a few pushes of a button to anything in between 4-10psi. Unless you're up it all the time it stays off boost and drives the same as a stocker.
