    Started to fit the mid box however slight problem it was for a 172 we think but Nick from pms was great got the new one sent out for next day with the other one collected was brilliant

    So new one will be going on tomorrow I think and given it a quick clean..

    right took the car to work this morning and the fetling i have done with it has managed to sort out the knocking for now.. however as mentioned in the above post the car feels like its pulling much harder however this is probably because i cant hear myself going as quick but you can notice when you take your foot of the gas cant wait to get it out on track now.. as all it needs is fuel and checking over

    Again, really great thread. Did port matching the top and bottom make that much difference? Ive been considering it, I noticed Trackspec offered it as a service.

    What did you use for painting the calipers?

    Yeah @trackspec197 was the one that kinda made me do it but yeah it felt much more eager when it was done and felt like it pulled much more..

    Also this pic shows the difference between the gasket and the manifold its quite a lot

    And the paint I used was called k2 off eBay.

    The car is fantastic as normal and the sound even with the res box is amazing but today I did a thing went and collected a nice black bonnet.. fitted it and cleaned the bonnet up then it's just started raining so I can't do the rest but looks much better then the old mess.. 20180410_115402.jpg 20180410_115404.jpg 20180410_123421.jpg 20180410_123431.jpg 20180410_123437.jpg 20180410_123529.jpg
