    Another update which I guess is a little over due.

    I bought an Emerald ECU and fitted it

    I bought a quick shift

    I bought some rear coil overs from D-Mac

    [​IMG]

    Greg at Protuner mapped it

    I set it up

    It got an MOT

    The turbo blew so it was rebuilt by Universal Turbos

    I drove it

    I owe a massive thanks to a whole load of people who have helped me along the way to get to this point, thank you all so very much!

    A big thanks to Ross for the photos, Alister for the YouTube vid and Grant for the Sweeps vs Japspeed vid.

    I hope to see some of you on my door soon, if not, I'll be on yours!

    Was a nice surprise to see this hooning round Lydden at the weekend, only went down to watch a grip day and get over my hangover haha. It looked awesome!

    Got a short clip of you and Team Japspeed shredding if you want me to put it up?

    Well done on completing the build. What are the cam specs and what cam timing did you run for the final dyno figure?
