    Can't remember exactly. Most likely ET-2. I do have 10mm spacers in the back and 8cm in the front.

      • I haven't updated this for a while. Lot have happen and parts have been fixed and replaced.
        1. Fuel pump died and had been replaced with a new Walpbro pump.
        2. MAC-Solenoid fitted and now working.
        3. Clutch works OK, not too hard or too harsh to use.
        4. Replaced the stock actuator with an adjustable Kinugawa item with 0.8bar spring.
        5. Visited RR and after we adjusted the boost to steady 0.8bar with the solenoid we now have new power figures of 170Hp and 204Nm.
        6. Acceleration enrichment still needs work and correct adjustments are really, really hard to find. So this is a issue that needs to get sorted to get it running right.
        7. Had a go with a carbon vinyl. That has to add at least +10Hp! 😁

          • Very nice, just goes to show how much engines move when you lifted off the throttle.

              yeah, I noticed that too. I have thought about getting stiffer engine mounts to reduce that a bit. Hockey pucks maybe?

                  I wish 😂 It's calculated engine power.

                  • @ 0,8 bar that is a nice figure anyway.

                    • After many, many miles and years i decided to change my bucket seats to recliners and here they are: Corbeau RRS with, of course, orange trim 😎

                        • After many tuning sessions on the road where I couldn't get the afr-adjustments work correctly I began to notice that something is not right with the sound of the car. Then I took a better look at the exhaust manifold and noticed that it's leaking between the heat wrap.

                          I thought that there would be a small hole in the weld but nooooo....

                          • That's bad luck with the manifold. I'm lovin the styling of the car though, particularly the interior.

                              Thanks I kinda expected that to happen at some point as that was the only weld that wasn't reinforced by a pro. Wasn't it so that if there's even a small chance that something can break down, it will? 😅

                              • And now in one piece. I'll get it all together tomorrow and see how it works.
