    Pre-cat + Konis fitted - pics inside

    Many thanks to Norm for sorting out my cars ride height today. The car is lower than standard models anyway due to the spec, but i still wanted lower. I got a deal on getting a full Koni suspension (lowers 40mm) and therefore we spent today fitting it even with massive hangovers (massive bender last night)! Also got the Precat fitted so the turbo spools up alot quicker now, but the car has got a LITTLE louder

    Can't really see much from the pics, but put it this way a coke can wont fit under the front bumper

    Original height:


    New height:



    I've set the suspension to completely firm on the front and medium on the back. Took it onto the 'test track = local roundabout' earlier and she sticks like glue

    Thanks again to Norm!

    Nice one champ, looking much better When I fitted mine I could feel a hell of a difference.

    As discussed earlier, I've got mine on hard at the front and medium and the back too and although it's bumpy I think it's the best setup I've tried.

    Sorry about the phone call by the way.... you phoned while the director of our department was doing his retirement speech and I was manning the bar!

    I'll PM you or ring later about BTCC though

    Good work there mate does look more agressive at the front now sitting that low.

    I always liked the ride with that Koni kit, been a few miles with Mike and a short trip in T-bones old car, does make it feel planted. What are your thoughts on ride quality, I think they're quite good.

    Never heard anything negative about the precats mate, hopefully you'e happy with that. Did the stainless bolts work out ok?? as I think the exhaust has M8 threads and the precat is a 10mm clearance hole

    cheers for the comments

    Legoman - all fitted perfectly mate including the bolts. Think we used the shorter ones in the end. Car feels alot more planted on the road. Due to how i have set it up the Turbo kick has gone as the car doesn't rock backwards anymore.
    (Payment on the way)

    end result - one very happy smitht
