Still not up n running though :( I'm laid up with a proper man-flu at the mo so have had to temporarily suspend all works. It's a class bit of kit which continually logs rpm, boost and afr. Should be invaluable when I start tuning

They sound fantastic bits of kit, looking forward to seeing your fitted...

Bad crack on the manflu, hang on in there, but best make sure you've got your will written just incase [emoji1]

A bit of progress today. Mostly wire routing and plasti dip. Finally managed to get my map light thing to stop rattling. Win! 9519bf09ef4cdbc3c9cce27e5114b4d3.jpg03 ... 14b4d3.jpg"><a href=http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/17/9519bf09ef4cdbc3c9cce27e5114b4d3.jpg' alt='URL>'>

Picked up some bits from the dealers today. An oil filter (hardly worth mentioning) and some GP seatbelt delete caps 922296a670b3462685b5b37b47fd1d4d.jpg03 ... fd1d4d.jpg"><a href=http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/24/922296a670b3462685b5b37b47fd1d4d.jpg' alt='URL>'> Surprisingly not a restricted part :)

Thanks Si. It's getting there bit by bit. The raised boot floor is now cut cca6e773aa58c03d4f84d387d4d153a1.jpg03 ... d153a1.jpg"><a href=http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/15/03/25/cca6e773aa58c03d4f84d387d4d153a1.jpg' alt='URL>'> And that should be upholstered by the end of today. Still got an oil change and a split cv boot replacement to do

Called the dealers this morning. They wanted thirty quid plus for a boot kit but couldn't get one till Wednesday! There's me thinking they'd have one and it'd be cheap lol. Anyhow got one from eurocarparts for nine quid :) it's on the shaft, just needs lobbing back on the car
