    Good to have it back after 3 weeks, Mark leant me his 197 while he had mine, I don't think I could go back to NA

    Scorpion are out of stock of the link pipe, nobody could tell me when it'll be back in stock, as it was in-stock with next day delivery on Tuesday I ordered a complete 3" PMS system with carbon tips

    It's tight down there

    I can't believe how it pulls, it feels a lot more than 330lbt

    I've booked it in to RST for another map tweek on Friday 12th

    The Akra's gone to a lad that lives around the corner to me, side skirts are being taken off tomorrow

    Did you forge yours Nick? That’s a lot of torque!

    The first engine only had forged rods, the torque was 325

    The second, this 1, is fully forged, by Flintshire Performance Engines

    It's gonna be interesting to see what it makes

    That was a fun drive back from MRS last night

    It made 330ftlb 302bhp

    It's so smooth with the 3" system fitted

    Not a Clio update

    The A45 has sold, she couldn't get the seating position rite & the throttle lag was driving us both mad so back to a S3, 8V this time

    1 owner, 16 plate, 16k, it's like new

    No idea, I didn't bother to ask, I just wanted to drive it after it'd been for mapping

    I'll find out & let you know when I go up & get it fitted

    Yes mate. I modified the mounting point spacing and removed the o ring to allow for the fuel to flow past the regulator.
