Finally!!! My car is back on the road! I took it off the road back in October due to 2 of my wheels (Inner barrels) cracked. I decided to get new barrels made, along with new suspension and brakes!

I've also had a full belt change, Incl waterpump, an alloy radiator and all fluids changed.

My wheels are still holding pressure which is great, now it's time for a 4 wheel alignment and a dyno check just make sure everything is ok for my trip to the Ring and Spa!!

Had my car dyno'd this week. Car had not been driven since October and with my trip coming up i thought id get it checked.
Everything seemed healthy, no leaks, however there seems to be a loss of power. Pink lines are 2014 and green is 2019. Any one care to share their thoughts?

Changes since 2014 are a kakimoto exhaust, i believe the timing belt is on correctly.

It drives ok, its hard to say if it feels slower as its been so long ***x1f923;.

These past 2 weeks have felt like the longest ever! Got my car back from RB after having a Link G4 installed and mapped . The car feels more alive and responsive!

The diagnosis as to why she was down on power was due to the Apexi ecu struggling to maintain any consistency, which Rod found out whilst mapping.

Roll on 17th November! Trackday at Donington

Got some trackday/winter wheels fitted! Was surprised with the weight of these things, i heard they are very heavy but they weighed the same the LMGT's!

Now i just need my exhaust mod to arrive and fluids changing before Sunday ***x1f642;
