took it to my mates today to do the tracking, decided to make sure the rearwheels were running straight , well they wernt ,were miles of, so took both rear hubs of and cleaned all the powder coat of the faces








still is not 100% inline but will do me to get me on the road i will then over the winter make myself a new disk beam





then got the front sorted, only got it done so it wont chew tyres as i have a set of new hubs done properly on orded and a rose jointed front end set up which should be here around chrimbo time

Looking good bud! Shame about the beam

Could you do me a favor? Would you be able to measure the diameter of your airfilter please? Need to know what sizes look like so I can compare lol.

My mate had an ITG on his Supercharged 106, bit smaller than that mind, it just collapsed at high revs and made the car bogged down.

My mate with a 470hp Fiesta had an ITG filter. The filter started breaking apart on the inside. Fuck having bits of filter hitting the turbo blades whilst they are spinning at 100 THOUSAND rpm !!

Like tim said lots of bad things around about itg filters and turbos. You need to be careful what filter you choose on a turbo, often the first thing you know about the filter failing is to late and your turbo compressor is fucked.
