The suspension is at its highest setting :eek:

Top of tyre just tucked in the arch all round, would rub horrifically on the front if it wasn't for the 22k springs

22k - 20k spring rates on a wet Knockhill will be interesting to see. :D

Hopefully theres enough damping in the dampers to compensate, or there will be a bonny looking EK9 pirouetting all over the place! :wow:

... your car has come a long way since you first bought it... despite the track usage, the car still looks soo clean. Havent driven the 9 in some time, but this week, ill be putting it back on the road :)

did you take out the power steering in order to use the n1 crank pulley??

whats the benefits of an n1 crank pulley?

Power steering came out a year ago, N1 pulley just went in a month ago

Reduces rotational mass for the crank to spin up, so benefits are same as if you fitted a lighter flywheel. it is 1.5kg lighter than the oem triple pulley and slightly underdriven

Cheers for the nice comments :nice:

Fuel pump is playing up so ordered a Walbro 255 replacement today, will add to the random noises the car makes haha

tbh i would run the oem pulley, much better things to spend money on, only gives you a marginally better response :nice:

Nice car man - always getting better for the track :bow:

1 question - why the 255 fuel pump? :wow:

You getting Vpower on the cheap or something? :blabla:

Josh..

Engine will only take as much fuel as it needs, regardless of what pump you run

the FPR dictates the pressure that the fuel is supplied at ;)

New pump from Honda costs a fortune, Walbro uprated replacement is only £70 :nice:

Cheers
