He wanted an auto like mine with transbrake but when he looked at the price it was to much $$$$ for what he wants to spend....so he thinks he was going to head the manual way because its the cheaper option.... (txt me about it)

Talk to Alex for a suspension set up, do it once do it right and you'll never have issues with it. plus you'll have a huge degree of controll for future setup

turbo lines are all done now got a shock when i got the bill for $500 though wasnt expecting that much thats for sure and that was getting it real cheap. managed to get him to drop the price another $80 so that was a little bit better. just got to dial in the cam now then its all done

finally got the engine in today . it all went to plan getting it in there then mounted the old trans in to get the engine to sit right it was then when i discovered that the custom plenum was way to high at the front and would not fit under the bonnet.we decided to modify one of the mounts to drop the engine down so after alot of mucking around we finally got it to sit under the bonnet but ohwell at least its all in now. also found that once the weight of the engine was over the front of the car the new suspension is still sitting a bit high for some reason i guess ill just have to wait untill it settles down and go from there.

yeah thats what im worried about ill have to do some research on it because i dont really want to get it tuned twice . unless i can tune the new computer just to be able to run it in and then get it properly tuned. probably a bad idea though might just have to get it tuned twice which will be rather exspensive
