    What IC are you running? Intake temp shouldn't be too bad even on a hot day unless you're running too much boost for the turbo or the intercooler isn't big enough.
    Looks a decent size though?

    Itís a japspeed I think which is basically a cheap eBay one, but itís huge. To be honest itís mainly when it gets thrashed on slower roads or just driving in traffic when itís not getting the airflow, but come to think of it I should just put the electric fan on override as that sucks air through the inter cooler thanks to the ducting

    I donít really mind it at all, and after a while you donít even notice it.

    -Itís only really tight corners it bucks a little
    - itís only really tight corners sometimes you get tire squeal (itís rare though)
    - When parking on full lock you have to rev it at least at 2K to over come the inner tyre

    Other than that itís no problem and its really predictable

    Sooo, did a fluids check before Teesside and pumped the rear tyres up to 45psi ready.

    Loaded her on the trailer, all the tools in the back of the trusty jeep and off we went



    Had a nice relaxing drive there, got to it in good time, unloaded the car and headed straight out on track.

    Since the last one itís had a new clutch, full lock kit and a more neutral alignment. Safe to say the car felt amazing, it was some much more predictable and sat on lock really nice, the lock kit allowed me to be more aggressive on initiations and transitions, this all made for less handbrake and the clutch held up really well. Plus it was well over 30 degrees and the car kept all temps fine and never went over 90.

    Only minor niggle which could well be me or the sloppy engine and gearbox mounts, but I was sometimes struggling changing down from 3rd to second, but this wasnít a big deal. So I went all day opening the bonnet once to check fluids at dinner and not putting a spanner on it all day.


    I did bin it into the tyres but only cosmetic damage


    Now Iíve done a drift Iím going to tidy it up now over winter and then hopefully give it a good go next year. So Iíve started by taking the wings off and cleaning it all up.


    Took the wire brush to it today


    It cleaned up well but decided itís time to get under the strut tops and sort that once and for all


    So I need to knock a bracket up for the strut tops and learn to weld but for now Iíll clean the left side and leave them in weld through primer


    All my Teesside clips rammed together
