    FMIC finally fitted!!!

    Right first of all, sorry about the pictures. Kept forgetting to take them so this will be a random thread lol.
    But finally after owning it for about 2 years, I have got it fitted . Mapped the car straight away with the phase 2 + LEH turbo map. Drives really nice, the power comes in smoothly all the way round the rev range.

    Massive thanks to Tom (Rizo) for pretty much doing all the work fitting it, and a big thanks to Adam for the use of his drive + bacon sarnies

    On to the pictures.
    Car already stripped, then remembered I had the camera




    Temporary measure lol

    then cut off


    proof I did some of the work lol




    Peek-a-boo


    The rotary tool is one of the best inventions ever lol. We killed about 20 cutting discs on it today, and the motor got so hot the capacitor inside snapped off lol. Had to resolder it back together!


    Ooooh sparks


    My go



    New disc time


    Starting to look a bit more like it



    Try it the other way round


    Trip to a local exhaust place got us this






    Got a bit busy then, so no pictures.....until.......all fitted - back the original way round. Time for a test drive. This is what happens when Tom is left in charge of my camera lol.

    We used quite a few tools lol







    And all done

    Yeah was a nightmare.

    Had to cut away quite a lot of the fog light surround on the back, and even now it is pushing the bumper out a little bit at the bottom.

    But the rad isn't spaced back at the bottom. Will give a bit more room if I can find away to do it one day lol.
