Right, so finally a progress thread seeing as ive had the car a year now, and what a year its been too!

Once i bought the car i purchased a takata harness and instantly thought i was the bees knees, i then got myself a mugen rep carbon wing for a neat 50 quid

At about the same time i then purchased a tegiwa x brace and p28 ecu and went to get mapped at tripple h performance, where i managed to get 180hp at the fly which wasnt a terrible result

Through winter last year the car was a delight to drive, no hassles at all, until i managed to score the crank and have to replace the bottom end, so i bought an old mb6 vti, and swapped the hubs, brakes, wheels and bottom end into my em1 with no mechanical experience at all!

well done doing all the spannering with no experience ! Engine wise I wouldn't swap a b18 out for a b16b, just swap the heads over at most.
