Yeah Lee's breathed some of his magic into the active centre diff map on the car during a very wet and slippery sprint round at Croft, but it's Mat Goode at MG Auto's who mapped the ECU to "500BHP at as little boost pressure as possible" (26psi/1.8bar at present).

He'll map it again in a week or so now they have put the new special cylinder head back on, plus a bit of extra squish that the uprated HKS head gasket will introduce. We're just waiting on getting the racetech exhaust manifold, turbo hotside and elbow back from zircotec now.

Received my Racetech Exhaust manifold, Blouch Dom 3.0 XTR turbo and Tomei elbow back from Zircotec today. Looking lovely in their new black metallic ceramic thermal coating.

HKS oil cooler fitted to the passenger side to compliment the Mishimoto oil cooler on the drivers side for a twin oil cooler setup.





Engine bay looking pretty neat with the wires tucked, brackets powdercoated black and zircotec coated hot parts. The radiator is getting swapped out with a slimline mishimoto Evo VI style rad with twin slimline fans which will move the water pipe away from the racetech manifold.

Is the twin oil cooler set up necessary? I'm not trying to pick faults just interested in why you've done that

Matt uses the car primarily for trackdays so the remit was to upgrade everything cooling wise to keep the car as reliable as possible.
The HKS oil cooler set up still runs off the original stat but will significantly stabilise oil temperature on track, something the Evo does suffer with when on full chat lap after lap.

Attend all-day track events at Spa and Nurburgring, pushing over 125 BHP per cylinder from 8.30am until 17:30 and the need for maximum cooling will likely soon make itself known .

This is the reliability level I want the car at for my annual pilgrimages, hence capping the power at 500 BHP too.

The Stack Pro Control oil pressure and temp gauges are set to change colour as I ascend through the degrees celsius, ultimately flashing red at me when things start to get out of hand.

The air con has been fully removed so the weight up front should not change a great deal either.

The HKS oil cooler is designed to compliment, not replace the oem one anyway. It's just that I'd already replaced the oem one with a 10% more efficient mishimoto one.

War-machine. Firstly, congratulations on the coolest name on the MLR. Ha Ha.

On a slightly serious note though, these projects cost a lot in parts then theres labour on top. MG Autos have been super efficient on the labour side of things and whilst I've chosen to make a few changes for this coming year which have put extra work on the guys, everything has been done in a logical order and opportunities have been seized here and there along the way.

MG's integrity has been second to none. By that I mean Ive asked for everything and theyve sold me nothing. In some cases they've said "Nah, don't bother" where little or no benefit is to be had.

Communication has been constant and I've made sure the project funding has been topped up all the way along with frequent breaks to take stock of where we're at so theres no nasty surprises.

We've all seen the public fallouts on social media when someone finds themselves well outside their comfort zone. Communication is key to a successful project.

I'm fortunate that Mat, Dave, Simon, Jordan and I all get along great. We can say anything to each other and there's no such thing as a silly question. It's the relationship as much as the money that makes this level of evo build possible.
