Hi Nick,

Its lewis from the MGT nurberg trip!

Only really spent a couple of k on mine in just over two years, mainly on regular maintainence and few extra bits here and there.

I am gonna put my car in at MGT for plenty more power before the nurberg trip next year so im sure there is a big bill coming my way pretty soon....

About 2K in the past year... Mostly on servicing and worn out bits that I replaced with upgraded ones.

Prolly spend another 2K in the next year too, I dont have a lot of cash to spend so I just keep buying a bit at a time.

now thats impressive:bowdown1: ,,, and sounds a bargain for that much power. take it the car was not stock before ya started?
It was bog standard from Japan, thats why i chose it, unmolested, slow as fcuk compared to my WRX... few quid later it was getting somewhere and when Tweenierob mapped it, he said the internals sounded mint through the det cans.

WRX wouldnt see which way it went now :)
