broster loving the car, its awesome,

couple of questions, the carbon fibre centre console is it possible to have one that will still hold the heater controls?

if so where did u get it from? also the cold air feed trumpets where did you get them from? and how much as i would like a pair

The trumpets are 40 a pair, we sell them, 2 week lead time on them at the moment thought.

The centre console isn't carbon.

A blow off valve is installed on a turbocharged car and releases excess charge from the boost pipe when the throttle is closed. Prevents the air returning back through the turbo compressor.

That is not what Mark has, he's got a roll over valve, and I have no idea what it does.

Mark's roll over valve acts as a breather valve for the fuel tank, but has a ball bearing in it so that if the car 'rolls over' it closes the breather and stops the fuel running out.

I think I'm right anyway

tom's correct.

no updates on it, been working on a mates (complete car loom) in my spare time so mine has been relocated to give me some space at home. ill finish that this week then crack on with mine, needs new bottom ball joints next and some more miles on it, then i need to sort my speedo out, will more than likely have it on the rolling road to map some more rpm soon.
