    Have fun mate, its nice and easy to do apart from the bit where you need to push the pin into the block. That is quite tight to do and you can damage the pin and wire if not careful.

    Well after fitting my TC switch yesterday, thought I'd try the car with it switched off, so this morn gave it a go and I got a very big surprise was doing approx 15mph in 2nd and just planted my foot to the floor the result was loads of wheel spin and not much movement forward. Will have to give it another go in the dry to see if I get tyre smoke.
