    Not fitted ducting yet but @trackspec197 TrackSport ducts fitted. Looks much better than just the holes with the fog lights missing.

    Gutted about the front bumper - it fell over whilst out in the back garden when I had it off the car. :worried:

    Need to do an update on the car with pics, its had quite a few things fitted:

    - Carbon front door cards
    - Toyosport manifold
    - Aircon pump removed and idler pulley - short belt between crank and alternator
    - Oreca exhaust
    - B14 Kit modified by Modeno with linear front springs
    - Modeno top mounts

    Soon to have:

    - Brake ducts
    - Laguna gear knob

    Did a lot of work whilst the manifold was getting fitted tidying everything up and painting. Also took the arms off the bumper support bar.

    How does the Oreca sound mate? I was originally going to get one but ended up with someone else.

    It sounded good with the standard manifold its not too loud or over the top.

    Now with the toyosport on it sounds like a rally car, popping on gear changes and overrun lol

    Getting the Clio ready for its Maxogen.

    The red fuse / battery connector is such a pain in these cars.

    Also bought a steering wheel and boss and a carbon foot plate so I can get rid of the front carpets and foam.

    Got everything ready to connect the battery up again.

    The cut off switch was hidden quite nicely in the battery box before but it probably makes sense to have it more accessable anyway.

    I'll be taking the front bumper off this weekend. I need to get some ducting up to the filter from the front. I also think I can take out a few sections of the plastic in this area:

    Got the car mapped at EFI Parts on Tuesday. Really recommend EFI great service and it really has transformed the car. 187Bhp up to 194 but the way it drives and sounds is awesome.

    Then Wednesday was a trackday at Oulton Park. Good fun in Vid 3 with a White Clio - not sure if its anyone on here?
