Had drama with the cat, had it booked in for a map which I had to cancel due to family commitments meaning not all the parts were fitted in time then a couple of days later the clutch started slipping so uprated clutch and lightweight flywheel ordered will be here Monday

On a better note I had had enough of the wedsports on the TME so managed to source myself a set of genuine TME enkies and for a bargain price too , they will be getting powder coated to make them mint again next week 🤙🏼🤙🏼

Oh and found out my actuator is fudged which is common so gotta order a new one from an 8

Thanks mate! Definitely agree with you on the wheels, when I bought it the plan was always to find some stock ones, it came from Japan on the wedsports, this set came up when I wasn't even looking for the bargain price of £300! Not even in bad condition just been sat in a shed for a year or two 🤦🏻*♂️ off to be powder coated next week

Update, clutch and flywheel all fitted now done 100 of the 'bed in' miles and feels great, can definitely feel the difference from the new trans oils too!

Just fuel pump and new 8 actuator to fit now then will be ready for mapping

Update:

I've covered nearly 200 miles already and the clutch feels amazing compared to the stock one, took some getting used to at first as was quite snappy but getting bedded in now

Now I've had these forge header tank and PAS resoviour for a little while but I'm actually now in 2 minds wether to fit them or not, with it being a TME I don't want to modify too much as people prefer them fairly stock when it comes to selling it, any thoughts?

If I don't would anyone be interested in buying them?
