theres been more progress but i still cant upload pics on here for some bizzar reason. anyway its alive, the sump bolts are sorted and the oil pressure sender unit is now in place. ive just gotta wire up the gauge, bolt the bonnet on and then it should be back on the road.

also tonight ive been to see my mate whos breaking a gsi and managed to grab myself a gsi front bumper with fogs,splitter and grill all in very good condition and also a set of cav slabs, front inner arches, rad mounts and a new 'a' pillar trim to mount my gauges on all for a barin price!!!

plans are to fit the gsi bumper to my car so i can get my reiger bumper repaired and resprayed with my new rear bumper and give the slabs a quick tidy up and repaint altho there not in that bad condition, just shit paint, and i'll either use them instead of my steelies for track use or sell them on

hopefully i will get some pics up soon

James, ill be very honest. Never took alot of notice of this project. Read the writeup in Dan295's copy of TV and WOW

Just read through this again and I've got to say this is an impressive build

made 232.5bhp at 6794rpm in that vid.

bear in mind tho that it does actually rev to 8000rpm, but i only got the car back the day before the rolling road day so told them to be gental lol.

hopefully i will start my run in period sometime next week, and im already saving up for what will hopefully be my last remap as there not cheap lol.

then its power run time, and tbh if it doesnt make 250bhp at the fly i'll be disapointed

i no i sed i dont like the gsi idea that everyone does it, but after fittin this temp to night i like it as it gives it a more subtle look, and i think it would go alot better with my steinmetz rear which should be on before the end of the month!

heres a couple of pics from my mob (still unable to upload pics in my garage )





i think it works better with my wheels also, altho mayb it could do with some morrettes? lol
