this has been the most frustrating yet rewarding build i've done.
Dont think i wish to do it again however, though maybe another project after this involving an evo me thinks, gonna enjoy the rx for a bit first though. Bloody deserved it!

All insured and ready to rock now, 70£ a month for a ballistic missile, not bad, got recovery on that to just in case. Laughing
Taking it to torqueflow to have a silencer fitted as currently its just downpipe to back box and that back box has nooooo effect on keeping the angry bee quiet what so ever.
Flames like a pyromaniac.

Off to fill the tank up with shells finest then im taking it to work to drool over.

Well i'ts been to work, blown enough blue smoke up the roads to make anything behind me vanish but on the way home there was far less, need to redo the coolant as the ratio was wrong and needs to be 70% coolant to 30 water, not the other way round, oh and i need a new turbo control solenoid as the one i bodged on....melted on the drive way.

Did the ol bonnet mod to as it gets a tad toasty under that hood.






And this is why it smokes like the Jamaican Olympic dope smoking team.

Just finished for the night, new solenoids in place, replaced a bunch of crap vac pipes, measure up the fmic piping and inlet pipes ready for replacing tomorrow.
hoping my seat frames arrive early so i dont pull a late one at torqueflow.

was tempted to fire the car up just now but i'll put a vid on fo' sure this time and you'd understand why i didnt!

Been busy again, new belts, moved the battery back into the engine bay after starting problems and currently re-fabbing sidemounts for the seat so i sit 3 inches lower and 2 back.
After that the rear coilovers are comming off to be refurbed.

Ohlins Sweden fixed height system with adjustable bound/rebound and camber control. The bill for them is just a touch over 2grand!

Im contemplating about removing the rear seats and making a box for something or saving up and hunting down the rear box's that mazda did instead of the pointless leather covered cup holders they call seats.
Oh and fixed my broken headlight yesterday and learnt how to weld plastic with molten black cable ties . lol!

Running wise it no longer overheads, boils the water or takes a piss when stood still,
The rad cap on the bleed system was totally the wrong type so shoved a proper one in place and all is good, system temps are down to the low 80's peaking to 92c before the fans chirp in. I've alse wired the air con switch so if the fans are not blowing in the cabin and i turn air con on, the fans spin at there mid speed setting on the radiator.

Today the seat is going in and im tinkering with the actuator rods as the one that controls turbo 2 is being a bitch and only letting it spool to 5psi and not 11 like i want!
