    if ur gonna get a cam later dont bother with just a mafless tune now. save ur money and get the cam in, most cam packages include a mafless tune.

    havent updated this in a while but the stereo has been fully installed, also got some work done by bjorn (not an abba fan) so car now has hm stainless steel extractors and twin 2/1/2 s/s exhaust with high flow cats, so has nice idle not to loud but when giving it a kick it makes some noise haha. Car was just serviced so runs like a dream, so when its due for next serive around dec sometime im hoping to get a cam sorted out but atm im just saving some coin have some more pics but cant find them :S
