    been a busy old weekend!

    Hi all, just thought i'd let u know what iv been up to.
    well woke up saturday (bit hungover) but weather was good so i set about fitting this lot, its been in the pipe line for a few weeks.


    jacked up and bummer off.
    the first thing the precat replacement pipe went on, before the radiator had to be moved back. found it a bit of a bitch to seal on my own but 2nd time lucky and was fine. you'd think there would be a better way of connecting to the turbo than that strap around bracket
    next was to mount the counteney FMIC (thanks counteney for the good price )

    off came that lot!

    and on went the cooler. everything went great,(just followed the very good instructions). till i tried the bummer and the fmic was sat too far forward. so i made these bigger bracket with adjustment

    that solved that problem, bummer fit fine after a full meguiars treatment and treated to some new mesh, (old was taty)

    on went sensors, new hoses and shiny plug cover.

    job done.
    now the brakes, whitch have been really poor recently!
    this should sort that, mintex disc's and pads

    cant wait till there bedded in! and they look ace through the wheels
    ho yeah the snowflakes went back on at christmas after a refurb by the wheel doc,really nice job. (thanks oddjob for the contact)

    well happy with myself. next lowering i think and remapping
    please tell me what u think? thank for reading

    Let me know how you get on with the Mintex Xtremes!

    I don't want to upset you but I've been running them for a few months now and they are awful
    They are great from cold but overheat V quickly! I can't wait to replace them (I'm looking at bigger brakes now)
