Mines got 245's on the rear with guards rolled on my 19's so you may get away with 245's with the lower profile of the 20" tyre... depending on the offest of the wheel of coarse

not much to update. had the coolant feed to the turbo decide to start leaking so remade that hose tonight and seems to have solved the burning coolant smell I was getting. (was dropping onto the manifold) also bought a pair of ET street radials and fitted them up to my Calais wheels. looks tuff and actually has some traction on the street now lol.

Re did my rear garnish with another sticker off of ebay, the last one lasted a fair few years before it started to go a yellowish colour. came up awesome again, hopefully this one will last even longer now the car is kept garaged. (this pic was taken before I did the silver outline on the top and bottom of the stripes that's why it looks like chipped paint, its actually bits of silver left on there)



bought another catchcan, can see the size difference compared to the old one, still mounted in the same spot where the carbon canister would normally sit.



not a very good pic and the car is filthy but gives you a little idea of what it looks like with the ET streets fitted to the Calais rims.



lastly I bought another set of 10mm topgun leads but black to replace the blue ones. this is with the new catchcan fitted, will be running the hoses the same as I had the blue ones just need to buy some more hose, also will be replacing all the blue fuel hose with black. decided I wanted to change the colour scheme and think it looks a lot nicer/classier without the blue.

heat wrapped my shifter cable as it turns out the trans gets hot enough to melt the cable to it lol. also put a p clamp into the floor to help keep it off the trans further up above.



tailshaft loop in ready for the drags this weekend.

took her down to the drags last weekend, drove it there (about an hour and a half drive for me) chucked some slicks on and went for it. full exhaust and full trim, managed to run a best of 10.990 @121mph. was a wicked day and the best part was being able to drive it home with no issues.

car is still up for sale, havnt really had anyone with cash keen on it. a lot of time wasters which is to be expected. not much has happened lately, fixing up a few little bits and pieces at the moment, just fitted a new indicator stalk. about to replace both drivers side outter door handles, feel like they are about to break. and gonna replace the passengers power window reg, motor sounds horrible and struggles to go up and down.

also just ordered some heat wrap, im gonna pull the manifold off and wrap it, possibly thinking about changing wastegates while its off too. will update with some new pics shortly

braced up some lower trailing arms I had with nolathane bushs in them



then painted them up and also bought some h/d nolathane upper trailing arms



while the arms were out I replaced the diff bushs with nolathane ones also. used a tool a mate of mine had made, turns it into quite anmd easy job.

took it for a drive after work tonight, also should say I put the pedders sports ryder superlow springs in at the same time. had standard fe2's in before. seems a lot stiffer in the ass end. seemed to wanna fry the tyres easier lol even though it did that anyway, but definitely feels more solid.
