i removed the stereo, but made up a new stereo loom and speaker loom


IMG_20210226_180143 by Laxadams, on Flickr

IMG_20210226_180229 by Laxadams, on Flickr


then i thought i would re-do the front arches


IMG_20210303_175538 by Laxadams, on Flickr


IMG_20210308_160205 by Laxadams, on Flickr


Painted with Raptor



IMG_20210309_102331 by Laxadams, on Flickr

IMG_20210309_142701 by Laxadams, on Flickr


IMG_20210310_155706 by Laxadams, on Flickr



Time to look at the recaros i have with new bolsters


IMG_20210319_172912 by Laxadams, on Flickr

had a new screen put in

IMG-20210330-WA0001 by Laxadams, on Flickr

Battery in the boot, its not the final solution, but it is legit enough to pass a vehicle safety test MOT and it has passed with this


IMG_20210405_112253_586 by Laxadams, on Flickr



since then i have started running logs on the car, looking at MAF readings, air intake temps, water temps etc and everything is looking good.
MAF readings suggest about mit 230's bhp but i cant push hard beyond 5000rpm as i have an issue where the engine almost hits a rev limiter and the turbo stutters.. I suspect it to be a bad N75 but a well known man in the uk (John Newman aka Rubjonny) had the same issue and it was resolved with new coilpacks..so i have odered 4 of those, new N75, new Spark Plugs and i hope this will cure the issue and get me a few more BHP by pushing to the red line.
Logging data below after i put it into PowerBI

Great to see you still have this, do you use it as a daily driver?
