      Apparently the SSP clutchpacks aren't worth the money at all, but the HPA clutchpacks work great.
      There is a cheaper solution if you are interested.

      On the clutch pack im currently running 5 inner and 4 outer friction plates.
      I will be increasing this to 6 and 5 with an additional steel with each.
      I will be grinding down the steels to accomodate the additional stack height but also taking some of the free play out of the setup.
      This means that i will be buying two clutch kits to build one, with a few components left over for the future.
      Im already running Unitronic stage 3 DSG software, so we will see what happens...

      Im changing out the OEM engine rad for a narrower but deeper Pro Alloy one which will allow air to be utilised to feed the air intake on the right side. I will also be able to delete the secondary water rad, hoses and free up a little space for additional CAI.

      Been meaning to change the headlight inserts to match the new look of the wrap.
      Moro blue inserts in the headlights..

      Split the headlight and gave them an undercoat and a little colour..



      Moro vs the lighter blue..

      Hopefully getting the lenses polished up before they go back on the TT..Syd..

      Came home to find these 2 babies waiting for me..


      They will replace the plain plastic blanks that are currently in the wheel..

      I will get them fitted over the next few days and post pics of the finished wheel..
      I also received my engine harness dress up kit..

      They will compliment my R36 coilpack plug tops.

      The strut bar was only £110 or $180 ish from "itune" they sell on ebay, usually Forge stuff.

      Why? Just because it's polished and not OEM?

      I think that it would be a mix of looking more substantial and shinny.
      I do have a polished rocker cover to go on, but that will probably be kept for big shows..or i may just sell it on..

      What does OEM have to do with it? I like how it looks that's why. Does it add anything over the stock one? Maybe? not much if any.

      Nothing, just asking. Like you said, I doubt it does anything over the stock bar, which we all have obviously.

      Its only on for the show factor and does not offer anything better over stock.

      My new APR 11 plate clutch pack has landed and is now being introduced to the gearbox..
      My Pro Alloy rads are being shipped today and should land at the indies by Friday.

      Received my new Pro Alloy Engine, Charge Cooler rads and new slimline fans a couple of days ago, which have now been fitted, this will allow the engine to be started today..
      There are no OEM bayonet hose connections on this rad as they are quite restrictive and full bore hoses can be used.




      The engine rad is 20mm deeper over the 32mm stock which allows increased cooling capacity and to also delete the secondary engine rad which was in the scoop.
      The Charge Cooler rad is 100% deeper than previous but still retaining a fine core.

      LMs are £1500 in the UK.
      Power is unknown but I guess it's more than OEM.

      Went for a run on the strip at Inters with the following setup..
      6psi boost max
      No launch control
      Max 5k rpm

      The setup was to protect the new clutch.
      0-60 4.9
      1/4 13.3

      I'm not keen on the wrap that's on the mirrors [100 cast] so I've ordered these babies..


      Not the cheapest but the best I could find.
      Maybe on next week.

      Been to the strip again with a bit more freedom and got into the twelves this time.
      Unitronic currently have my ECU for a tweak, so the boost can be raised from 1.2 to 1.8 bar.

      Carbon is a slippery slope and will empty your wallet quickly.

      This is a joint effort between APR & SSP which is the latest 600 version with extra friction plates and etched steels. It is displayed on the SSP website.
      You need Unitronic DSG software to compliment it.

      Last week Zircotec managed to find a slot to coat my hot parts..


      Got the new seats in the house to give them a little wipe down..
