Cheers Ben!! :thumbsup:

It's been a lot of work, but yeah... as long as I can get the bodywork sorted this should get pretty interesting I hope :)

Stuck the squirt into Tunerstudio and the JimStim and she seems to be working nicely :thumbsup:

Just need to add the coil drivers and then get some sort of base tune on it then can shelve it until the ITB's are set up.

ST170 inlet is on its way to me so can do the same setup as I was going to do last time.

Coil drivers are ordered and as soon as they come will get them wired up so the squirt is done and finished.
Also got a little present from Mr TNT today :D

Innovate LC-2 Wideband and Gauge.

Gauge is super low profile so will fit in my a pillar nomad pod nicely so will get that back on. And it's green backlit so it'll match the standard dials nicely :)

Few more goodies arrived yesterday and today :)
Now have:
ST170 lower inlet and injectors (again lol)
Second coil driver - will get them wired in tonight.
Random ECU to use as interface to current wiring loom
Suction mount for camera (muhahahah will update more when camera arrives tomorrow ;) )

That's it for now.

Have't done a great deal over the last couple of weeks on this.

Never wired in the coil drivers as didn't have the right sized heat shrink so will sort that at some point.

Camera has arrived:

Image

And I may have done something very silly and bought something else for the car but just waiting on the deal being done.... part of my hopes it falls through (as does my bank manager!) but the rest of me really really hopes it doesn't!! More details to follow once I know whats happening :thumbsup:

Also took her to see a body shop about getting the front wings, valance, both sills and rear arches tidied up so just waiting on a price from them.

Not yet woodsy. She won't be ready till later on in the year so will just wait until nearer the time she's ready.
Don't want to rush setting up the throttle bodies and fucking it up!!

Camera is sweet as!! Toyed with the idea of a go pro but wanted to be different.

Got another little parcel delivered today

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some yummy vibratechnics fast road mounts to replace my shagged standard ones :)
Along with some Mintex 1144 pads for my Cossie 4 pots!!

And I can confirm that the purchase I talked about earlier has in fact happened and I'm just waiting on some pics to come through... Gulp!!

Will update once the pics are in ;)

Got some 20mm hubcentric spacers and longer studs to allow the 4-pots to fit too.
Along with some bits and bobs ordered for the throttle body build.

In other news out the car in for its MOT. Failed on welding on the floor and sills and rear brake cylinders leaking.
So got them to weld up the holes and dropped off my 203mm rear drums and got them to install those for me :thumbsup:
One thing ticked off the list ;)
Pick her up tomorrow.

Not going to get the bodywork done now. Going to buy myself a welder and compressor for the money I was going to spend and do it myself!! How hard can it be????

which car are the drums off Paul?

All depends on how good of a job you want Paul, but i'm sure you'll give it your best ;) Get Dave to give you the tips on spraying her!

Well, Pedal box arrived today at 10:45. Not bad seeing as it was dropped off with Parcelforce at 19:10 last night :shock: :shock:

Image

Also, got some pics through for the big purchase I was talking about earlier.

Image

Was supposed to be a Quaife LSD so a bit gutted but it'll still be epic :chill:

Other bits and bobs I've received:
Focus black top return fuel rail
Adapter for end of fuel rail to use Sytec Adjustable FPR
Sytec Adjustable FPR with gauge
Lockable Aerocatches

Have ordered a set of Focus rear hubs, discs and calipers and an RS2000 handbrake cable so if I can't get the handbrake lever for the drums I've got a fall back.

They do look pretty epic!!
And its got the revised pedal design so should have no issues with pedals flexing and bending like Luke did on the Trolley with the first style of OBP box :thumbsup:

Can't wait to get it on and all set up :D

The green highlighter is the office at work. Doesn't get used as much as the red highlighter :)

As for the work bench that's not mines.... It's Quaifes!!! Muhahhahahahahahahaha
