    Would it be alright to come get some photos of it for a brotherhood write up when things are done?

    Sure thing Bamber :thumbs:

    Little update:

    The Black top 20v ITB's are a different diameter to the silver top 20v ITB's I had on the old 16valve engine, so we turned them out to exactly the right diameter:

    The lovely 20v Catcams arrived! We will definitely be offering Catcams in the near future as I didn't realise how many applications they have that suit us lot, and the research they do with each application seems top notch..

    [​IMG]

    The water housing adapter turned up from Techno Toy Tuning, and a very nice piece of kit it is too!

    Here you can see it fitted, and also top left is the distributor blank we turned up for the head. It has an O-ring, and was frozen to fit the head.

    That was all we were waiting for to get the engine back in. So myself, Paz, and Jay threw it at the bay. There's still a few bit's and bobs to go in, but I'm really happy with how clean it's looking.

    What the bloody hell do they write on these engines with??? :wack: We tried all sorts of chemicals to get it off with no success. It's no bother though, as mr Jims factory has them in hand :D

    I've also removed the Adjusters from the rear of our Driftworks coilovers, and set the shock length to suit..... It's really low! :smokin: infact so low I'm going to have to rework the rear arches AGAIN to give the clearance we need, but it will be worth it. Even in the state it's currently in, the car has serious stance.. Photo's once we have the rear arches sorted :thumbs:

    sweeeet, thanks man.

    But fuck i'm jealous! Looking super sweet now.

    T3 stuff is always amazing, I bought a short shift kit from there and the manufacturing was perfect. Those water line kits are mega dollar though! Fair play to you man, it's a serious bit of kit.

    Bam.

    Wow.

    Amazing what you can accomplise with the tools and the equipment.

    Im struggling to manage to get the tyres off mine without serious military style planning.

    How i'd love to turn up, leave the car with you guys and steveos welder and then pick it up in a weeks time. :(

    Looks awesome.

    Sweet project!! I'm so jealous that you can completely strip a car and almost start from scratch, i'd love to be able to do something like that!
