It's been a while, I've re done a lot and re done a lot again since 2012. Life has thrown several curve balls at me, but here I am, again heading for winter and only just starting to pull things together. A few little bits to finish up and it's on to the final wiring. Ready for attempts on first start. I'll likely be chasing gremlins for a while but hopefully only minor as it's taken me all this time to sort out the stuff I was never happy to begin with.

Tight! Looks neat tho, I like the cooler in the wing, looks oem.

Other than looks a bit tidier, is there any advantage to using coil packs over the conventional watsit?

Nice job mate :) I agree with Jetblick. Love the idea of the cooler in the wing.

It's a credit to the effort you have expended to get it looking so oem.

Can't wait until you fire it up !

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.
VEMS + 12 PSI + Liquid Intercooler = Small Bore FUN!

Erm yes indeed. 7psi boost and 6k rpm at only 50% throttle on a rough map has shown me where it wants to go 😲
