    '09's progress, no pics yet its all talk for now, cancelled the ring due to mates being t***ers, decided to go eds 3.5, ordered all seals and gaskets etc, plus vxr turbo, airflow meter and injectors, also bought bigger courtenay sport hoses and a clutch, a sports cat from exhaustsuk as well as a oe dump valve blanking plate off someone off here cheers, forgot to mention the smic off a mate after alot of haggling etc, got round to start fitting stuff yesterday, turbo and cooler are just about on, all rest over next week, mapping on 10th March, no fitting kit with smic, so im having to cut away the odd bit, hopefully it'll end up and i know it wont be un tidy, will get pics and results up when i can

    so bumper is back on, but i have a few problems, firstly the cooler is on show at top near bonnet due to not moving rad back, its kind of s*** but its a tidy s***, secondly the bracket on the side of the bumper where it attaches to s*** gaurd, when i bought car it was split and i had to repair it, well me and my dad have disturbed it so it wont fit up now again, so its either new crash limiter and bumper unless after its all mapped etc i take bumper back off and cut alot more of the slats out or all out and mesh it as well as repair the bracket, it should not have to be strained and pop out then and break, we'll see, its not stopping the car so bring on the power


    pics to follow next weekend. can take p*** and make fun all people want, i know ive cocked up but its still clean and not scruffy

    sorry for the poor quality, camera aint the best, thought they'd come out better, these are the latest ones, also to show you to the extensivly reworked bumper, must of had 400 man hours in its life lol with repairs etc, what ever you do get a bracket kit for the rad to be moved back of it'll end up like this lol
