    So yes, I've entered Ten Of The Best! Never done it before so I'll give it a bash. Hopefully get the car mapped beforehand for a little extra juice!

    So the car is back on the axle stands tonight, fear not folks it's not broken lol! New sump has been fitted as my old one was absolutely battered and 20 years old as it was the original sump from the B16B, it was dented and leaking so a new one was purchased, baffle plates and turbo drain welded in before a coat of primer then satin black. I've also tried some gold reflective tape where the downpipe sits, see if it reflects any heat.

    Other jobs included oil and filter (obviously), topped the box oil up, swapped the wheels and hardwired the fuel pump because Friday is MAPPING TIME!! New injectors are going In, screamer plumbed back on then shoot for 500! Will it explode......stay tuned!

    The car is at Race-Tech as we speak, dropped it off this morning and the screamer was done by the afternoon, plumbed back in on a slip joint due to lack of space for a flexi. Hopefully injectors going in and mapping early next week.

    Also bought myself a new lid.

    Yeah it's still going, very busy too! Think they had some bad press years ago but I can't fault what they've done for me, it's been brilliant!
