no tuning feels fast enough

only items changed are indicator bulbs and added a quick-shift as the standard change is a bit ropey 1st-2nd and it also makes the lever closer

It will never be RB1 mate, it's a totally different car. But am sure after a full summer of running all over Yorkshire and creating some new memories then you will love it for the car it is.

could be right a few blasts will help I think and at least when not on it it does 40+ mpg
 
Looks good mate, Im still undecided on the body coloured 'diffuser' with some colours.

The mpg and performace these things have is unbelievable !

yes there are some bits of the design that are a bit errrrmmmm!

but the performance/economy/running costs are unreal - one of the reasons I made the change - I HAD to save some money on running costs and the st has made £1000 saving :thumbsup:
