there is a few bits and bobs left to do on the front subby, the top arms never got painted because the hamerite yellow paint is shite and just flakes off :( and rather woryingly the ride hight at the front is stupid, i know there is no engine and it needs to settle but its got maybe 3-4 inches to drop before im happy and the adjustable cones are fully wound down :(

Coming along nicely that mate.

Have Accralite got any 73.5mm's in stock?

Otherwise go with the cast omega's they are well proven.

What CPR you looking for?

I know you mentioned going for a low boost, high comp engine this time.

im not hunting around for huge figures, im more interested in a good amount of usable torque i think 150 bhp should be easily in reach, if i can get more without been too close to the limit i will,

i will be building my own manifolds and having the turbo over the clutch housing, mainly for the looks, and swapping turbos easily*happy*

Alen head bolts suffer when being torqued down best get a full hard on with torx bolts.

bit of an update, last weekend i ripped out the cage, chopped off all the bolt on tabs ground down all the joins because a couple cracks showing through the paint, it has also been modified to move it further back on the chassis i have managed to gain 5 inches of travel for my seat :) i plan on rebuilding the front half of the cage when i gain a pipe bender in the next couple of months.. :)

this weekend i have set about my rear arches, this month i bought an air saw to make the job easyer but i managed to seize it*happy* i did manage to get one side done though:)
i was surprised to see how thin the metal in the arch was compared to the rear quarter
