be careful with the VXR injectors mate, get it on the wideband before giving it any as they flooded an engine on Phs3 software.
you will have to run about 2.5bar of fuel pressure.

Radiator is fitted behind it sits about 5mm off at each side... Its bloody close though, and the oil cooler is in between the intercooler and radiator.
Std bumper still fits over everything too without cutting away. Who needs bumper bars

None as yet mate still waiting on Knockhill being reasonable... price would need to go up to 65 a car to break even now and they would only let me book tues wed or thurs... bit of a pisser really as there are now 6 or 7 of us running lets which would be fun.
