  1. Been a while since I've posted, mainly using this for history picture proof purposes. Fresh service and MOT again, nice clean mot and fresh oil (5w-40w fully) fuel, oil ad pollen filter. Nice oil and filters as always. Miles slowly rising, still drives beautifully and as tight as ever. Found the engine mount vac lines weren't looking the best, so changed for fresh lines. Finally got new wheels. Real "BBS Reps" 8Jx18 ET35 at the front, 8.5Jx18 ET45 (i think) at the rear. Also found a performance back box, as you can see in the pictures, here how it sounds. a hell of a lot of images/videos can be found below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKiTGOGdPL7JmgY9lwEOp_g https://www.instagram.com/vehicular_enthusiast/
  2. Little sound clip of how the exhaust sounds, got a stainless steel back box on the way, will update once that's all fitted. Thoughts on the sound?
  3. Been a while since I've updated this properly, so here's an image dump. How she currently sits next to my friends IS200 after a car show. mentioned in the last post of 13/15mm spacers, here's how they looked. Had another service, all fluids, filters etc and used 5w-40 castrol Edge Fully Diesel oil. odometer for records. (yes, oil sensor has gone) Exhaust became a little more free flowing. Will get a sound clip up later on as the one I had recorded was on a awful iPhone quality. And how she is currently, still after a good FMIC, back box and then will get her mapped once again. More pictures, videos etc can be seen below. https://www.facebook.com/Vehicularenthusiasts/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKiTGOGdPL7JmgY9lwEOp_g https://www.instagram.com/vehicular_enthusiast/ Comments, thoughts and suggestions always welcome!
  4. Thought I'd give a little update on how things are going. First things first, I've finally fixed the boosting issue, by replacing the turbo. recon replacement from Essex turbos. Would recommend, very quick delivery and one of the cheapest quality ones about and 2 years warranty keeps me happy till I sell the car. Here's how it sounded on first startup. Haven't got many pictures atm but I've also installed 15mm/13mm spacers and a newer Eonon android head unit. Here's how the car currently looks. Will get more/better images soon once the further upgrades arrive.
  5. Finally got round to fixing this issue, replaced the turbo and it's not running perfectly fine now with no boosting issues. f**k knows why it's also quoting Chocka below, wouldn't get rid of it every time I went to reply.
  6. Still in the bay and have the BM, will keep an eye out for you.
  7. Generally buy from GSF/EuroCP when they have their weekend deals.
  8. Welcome back, looks like you're off to a good start once again. Loving the Silver/Gold contrast.
  9. I have looked into a near bolt on option for a FMIC a fair amount and am planning on buying one soon to see whether it'll work well. Below are the measurements I have taken. I have found that the below universal intercooler is the correct size specifications but I haven't Brought it yet to see if it'll be a good fit. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321705843748?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I've driven a couple cars before and after a good FMIC and they feel nicer to drive, quicker to spool and feel faster (could be placebo).
  10. I've yet to resolve the issue, the car still has the same symptoms 5k miles on. I'll be hopefully replacing the turbo in the next few months and I shall see if that fixes the issue.
  11. I've got a ebay finest fitted to mine which cost under £100 and it's a great fit and got £80 for the cat down pipe. Not many second hand units come up for sale.
  12. Looking good, don't see many SE spec cars in Imola red. more pictures needed.
  13. Another update, with boring mundane drivel. Finally got around to fitting the braided hoses, CVD delete and fresh ATE super blue fluid, then this was found. . . . . Made the decision there to replace the copper brake lines as so. RH side, made a little too long and broken clip. LH side, little neater. Method of joining rather than replace the whole lines as they were fine, this was the best/strongest method. With these replaced, braided lines. CDV delete and fresh fluid the car feels awesome once again. With a fresh service completed @ 164,502, new oil (5w-40 fully), filters (oil, fuel, pollen), pipercross/maf/map clean the car fees great again. Mot and tax time. Nice and clean. New turbo, suspension and more polly bushes install coming soon. Off to Auto sport this weekend, so be nice little drive up the motorway. Comments always welcome. Dan.
