link to your kit guy? i looked earlier on website and could only see the misimoto kits
We will look at getting a listing sorted. We are just waiting on the latest batch of take off plates to finish engraving.

At the moment however, it is a recommended dealer supplied / fitted kit requiring professional installation with custom mounting and assembly of lines etc. Although this is all simple enough, we want to know it is installed correctly, because if it is installed wrong or not the right amount of oil added it could end badly for the engine and the product blamed even though it had been fitted incorrectly.

yeah unfortunately i'm not doing the 8 hour drive each way to gt101 but i am just about to pull my engine for the 3rd time for new pistons and rods so now would be a good time to do it i guess.

In at GT101 to have the Nemesis oil cooler fitted today.
Great service from the GT101 team. Very helpful and knowledgeable, and the new cooler block appears to be very well made so good work Guy at Nemesis.
Nice job.

yeah it looks like a crack but thankfully its not. seems to be a very rough casting. There are a few marks on the sump that make it look like it was sand cast by Bronze Age men in a fire pit.

It's been a while since i've posted but in the last few months, i've added steeda lowering springs and painted them green to match my accent colours, added BMR sway bars and lock out cradle kit really impressed with the stance and feel of the handling upgrades, but need spacers so that the front tyres fill out the wheel arch more, either that or new alloys :like: .

i had a few issues using the wrong type of bushing grease at first as i used some pretty watery stuff so it was creaking like mad but got some recommended stuff and it's been sweet ever since.

Nice work Greg, I like you're style - because it looks a lot like mine haha

I now want my springs to be red!

If you're going spacers, IMO 23mm front and 20mm rear is the sweet spot.

Thanks, yeah they could be twins except for the red tail lights.:like:

I may go spacers or invest in alloys just gotta decide what I want, I've seen some GT500 replicas that look decent. But it's a big purchase to buy without seeing them on the car.

The paint was easy I did them whilst waiting for the sway bars, 2 coats of primer, 2 coats of colour and 2 coats of clear.

Its just if you can be bothered to pull the springs out again:angel:

If those fog lights are US market do you loose the DRL? Isn't the US wiring different to the European market?
Yeah these only have 1 LED in, the OEM light has 2 bulbs. It comes with an EU connector so it just plugs straight in.

I finally got my Barton short shifter installed after 2 years and had it mounted to the transmission. Shifting is now much more stiffer and precise, I should have installed it much sooner.

FYI with the current sale it's cheaper to buy the lhd cooler and add the rhd block off plate, it will give you the same kit but £55 cheaper.

Finally got my rear seat delete fitted too. The lock down and working from home is proving productive to my list of car mods :rockon:

So thats what the fuel pump grommets are supposed to look like :)

When the engineer came to fit my tracker last week, it was noted that they were present - but weren't actually fitted into the holes.

Have you fitted any dynomat or anything over the metal to help with noise reduction when doing the delete ?
