Engine is in. put the standard red cover on to save my other one getting scratched -



pictures dont really do the shine justice. the gearbox is so shiny




car was booked in for mapping on Friday 13th March and I didn't make it
I came down with a virus which completely shut down any progress on the car for about two weeks, such awful time to be practically bedridden with mapping round the corner
Car is at the point its almost ready to start up, just a few things I want to get right beforehand and spend a little longer on rather than rush it.
Really not happy with the boost pipes, the turbo kits been an absolute nightmare from the very beginning with things missing, no instructions or parts labelled - just bags upon bags of random fittings and bolts and my pipework just doesn't fit together at all - really not happy after the money I've spent on it and if I could go back again I wouldn't have bought the kit.

I dont have many pictures of progress, just been cracking on with it tbh, but I have a few off instagram I'll post here

got a remote line made up by Hel to run an adapter with 3 take offs for turbo oil feed, oil pressure gauge and the stock oil pressure switch. turned out to be no good as its a union fitting so had another one made locally in the end. took a lot of effort getting it together but it should be a lot safer/reliable


many AN fittings!



Car went off for exhaust at AAS in Newcastle, so happy with it. I took the car to them way back when it was on the road in August last year to show them what I had to see if they could replicate the look of my 5zigen exactly, took the car down last Friday and they had a few different tailpipes for me to choose from that were exactly like my 5zigen. They've fab'd it with noise in mind so hopefully I'm going to have no issues getting on track with it, it sits nice and tight to the car too yay


relocated fuel filter using adapters and AN fittings and keeping with OEM filter

more oem parts and some running in oil!


bought some new wheels for track, didn't really need them, but it was a bit of an impulse buy.. they're being refurbed black though

new valves, nuts, stickers and centre caps from Japan too


and obviously with new wheels, I wanted some new rubber..


my painters had my vented wings, and we couldnt decide where to put the side repeaters... took some inspiration from my saxo and they've gone in the side strips so so happy with these! he's done a brilliant job.
test fitted them for a cheeky look




and my bumper took some abuse last year so had it repainted again


and dragged her out the garage for a wash





just wiring left and shes ready for mapping, which is rebooked in 2 and a bit weeks time!
