    Bank holiday Monday I went and did a drift. It showed me alot of places that need improvement but as a whole I was impressed and it was fantastic fun.
    The day was designed around twinning and trains and that's exactly what happened, there was up to 7 car drift trains at some points, all with random people made it so fun













    Here's a video

    I'll upload more videos/pictures of the day later

    Latest job was manifold change as a gasket between the manifold and turbo has blown
    All the nuts came off easy after being soaked in plus gas, only 3 studs unwound


    Turbo out, can already see all the exhaust soot on the engine


    Whole unit on the floor


    Quite a gap there


    Gasket didn't look good


    New manifold, braided turbo lines and gaskets to go on


    Manifold half in, was alot more fiddling to get it in then there was getting it out because the manifold is much bigger



    All in


    That was the last picture I got but all together and running now spools so much quicker and at lower revs now

    I had a new decat pipe to fit which had a built in flexi but was way to short so welded in a extra bit




    I also made a battery strap as it was currently loose


    Here's what's left of my tyres from Monday

    I settled on gold paint for the brakes

    Not really done much with it recently, having put drifting on hold for a year I kinda lost intrest with it, but got it back the other day and did a few bits
    Made a hard pipe for the airfilter


    Fitted some new front tyres


    Rear anti rollbar fitted as it didn't have one


    Polly steering rack bushes as old ones where shot



    And some front tension arms, steering feels much better now

    Not really updated much, new job with lack of time but it did give me access to do some jobs.

    First job was to gas the aircon, I was unsure if it would work as hadn't been gassed for a while after having no engine but it works perfect now


    Other job was to change the rear tyres as then only had 1.8mm tread



    New tyre size is 245/40-17 instead of 235/45-17 I think look much better

    Typical new bits wash

    Well since last post the car has sat abandoned in my workshop.
    Dragged it out a couple of months ago with a fresh mot it's back on the road





    As I stole the wheels off it for my other car I needed some new wheels for it got some 7twenty wheels, fitted some accelera 651 sports on the front and am very impressed, a pair coming for the rear now too!



    Got it machine polished up



    I actually got it out to sell up and buy an evo but the love it back for it now 😎
    Time for more mods
