    Hahaha well now i've found out how much fun Norfolk is i'll be going there more. I was down for Mallory before they cancelled it.

    Have you got a chip for it yet? Helps with the acceleration and increases the rev limit to 7k

    So its been ages since i updated this but the car has changed massively. Its finally got a turbo :-

    Latest update is that the manifold is almost finished. It's a RHD top mount converted to bottom mount.

    Decided on a HX30 with 12cm housing.

    A few of the early manifold pics:-





    and with turbo





    Also my Delrin LCA bushes arrived from Sean at SLR along with different studs to allow me to run the 15 inch wheels with my Steering Angle Kit if needed.





    First time i drive it will hopefully be at Silverstone

    Opted for a Helix clutch and DW flywheel to help put the power down

    I'll be running Meister R suspension this season. I run these on my R32 GTR and they are a fantastic bit of kit:-

    Pics of the new suspension, its a work of art:-













    No more rock solid single setting ebay shite

    To compliment this im running the SLR Steering Angle Kit but this is yet to be fitted.
