Mr GTP I had it wheel aligned last month, I stood there and watched the guy do it.. It may have been tyre pressures which I still need to check.

It was just an unsettled feeling.

For me any time a car has felt floaty it's a dead give away the shocks are long gone. That is where I would be looking first for sure.

Not a great deal to update lately but have been mucking around with machining a few pulleys.

Machined 2 alternator pulleys, and bought a 200mm length of 152mm 6061 aluminium for the crank and water pump pulleys..

Looking good,You up to making another set of pulleys? I'm after alt & w/pump alloy pulleys. I bought front pulley & alloy F/wheel from Suzukird but they didn't list or show others. Please pm price if you interested and have the time.

Been a long time between posts, a little change in direction of the car. But it has passed engineering and will be legal road going N/A m18 GTi within the next few weeks.. More to follow soon.

Knocked up a new exhaust that exits the rear of the car with another magnaflow muffler, bit of stuffing around but came out ok.

Fresh plugs and oil for another trip to the dyno on Wednesday. :twisted:

It made 118hp, 220nm tq, bit down on what the JEM dyno produced but I'm more inclined to believe this reading.

It's all rego'd and road legal. Have put about 50kms on it and it feels awesome! So glad to be driving it after this long.
Took it for a spirited drive up the mountain close to my house and it was nothing but wheel spin on old second hand semis.
Will fit the coilovers, wilwoods and get a wheel alignment next week.

Here's a photo about 6yrs apart.

Bottom is today

Great work mate! That will be a blast to drive, especially with the bigger brakes and better suspension. All the hard work paying off nicely I'm sure! =D>
