    Fiting rear camber arms

    Maybe an extra 1/2 hour tops, they did my front camber arms in record time, there is very little they have not seen before. Also know that area like the back of my hand as I lived there for 12 years as a kid.

    Fiting rear camber arms

    Just a thought but WIM would charge an hours labour and be able to do the allignment 100% spot on, that way you would be totally confident its all been done the right way. If you wanted company I could road trip with ya as well.

    Not very impressed!

    i wouldnt be so quick to jump into a 6 mps, they have issues like vvt actuator failure, stretched chains, turbo oil seals, faulty chain tensioners, diff issues, rear diff mounts made of butter and worse still zoom zoom boom con rods out of the block. Finding a good one is a feet in itself as...

    No Boost

    Agreed very unusual for a turbo just to stop working altogether unless its totally fubared and the compressor wheel is stuck. Job one is to check all hoses and clamps from cold end to hot end paying particular attention to the intercooler piping. If all looks good it would then be time for a...

    Cleaning fuel system

    Arrrggg Front bumper.

    Speak to Lee at HH he could hook you up with a brand new bumper for around £250 I think. Also deep mocha pearl gonna be a back order from Belgium job I would think. When I changed mine it was a perfect match, but a respray would of needed the wings blending to be a 100% job.

    What oil?

    As always it depends on how you drive your car and how often you plan to change the oil. If you hammer it alot then you will want a quality synthetic with good shear strength qualities. Also if you tend to do high mileage and don't change the oil often, again a quality synthetic would be better...

    Well a couple of the civinfo guys where able to destroy the kestral kevlar clutch with high pressure maps on their ictdi's. IIRC they had different tunes as well think they where rstuning and celtic maps. I would be happy with a stage 1 and CG organic setup but a stage 2 I would want the paddle...

    anyone got a cgmotorsport paddle clutch?

    If you speak to Mike or Linda at CG they also do a 25% uprated version which is an organic clutch. This would give you a more robust clutch without the paddle clutch issues.
