      I hate the way silicone couplers look! It's something that aggravates me about nice cars...

      Tyrolsport Greg is a great fabricator/tuner/guy, I'm very lucky to have him working on the car. The seats are Recaro Sportster CSs.

      Indeed he is, always speaking in the third person when he works on a car... Thanks man. Though from what I hear, it'll still be much slower than your Jeep.

      Tyrolsport Greg sure can weld... Shots of the almost finished air-to-water intercooler are here.

      UK guys are so lucky to get 4-Mo 2.8L 24v cars!!!!!

      I'm jealous.

      The bottom end is now a 2.9L with Wossner rods and pistons, balanced crank, etc. The head has a mild port with 1mm oversize Ferrea Super-alloy valves and an INA spring and titanium retainer kit.

      Yeah its a far cheaper alternative to an R32, once turboed much quicker too!
      I read your other thread, your car will be mental, 500+bhp @1 bar boost? weapon.
      here is a pic of my car today, just piped up the water and pump for chargecooler, quite a bit of tuning to do now!

      Thanks guys! I can't wait to start it.

      chaffe, the cooler is mounted to the gearbox and there will be a small flexible mounting point onto the strut tower.
