Nah thats it now,i am genuinly really happy with how it runs atm and its not often i would say that as you always want more lol.

Atm it seems a nice balence for what i am after ,and its certainly not slow imo and always makes me smile when driving it.

I dont know if its the placebo effect but the cam has made the car for me,it feels alot more soild imo and just grunts instead of screams on boost now.
I will admit it has made it abit rough/twitchy below 2k though,but i have grow to love the lumpy idle.

As long as it dont go pop i am happy,but if does end up killing the headgasket again or pistons i will have to consider aftermarker managment and thats when i will push for more,fingers crossed though it should be ok!

Yeah hopefully i just need to sort this clutch and the gearbox but i am on the case as we speak.

Thing is dunc aint on here atm i dont think and he was the one that sorted the stand for the retro show,when i last looked on facebook he looked like he was getting pissed with unos and had an engine problem so am not sure whats going to happen.

I will look into it closer to the time if duncs not about to see if we can get enough interest and a stand/spot to park.

In bits again Laughing
Changing to a top change box and fitting the lightened and balenced punto gt flywheel and clutch i had brought,have also done the rose joint linkage mod.

Not running yet but think it should work,although i did have to grind off a small part of the box to get it to fit.

Also stil fighting with that weeping sump gasket Evil or Very Mad

Well not really much of an update as I have basicly done nothing to it  Laughing 

Infact all I have done is neglect it  Neutral 

Its been washed only once this year (last week  Laughing ) and been abused on a daily basis.

The interior and engine bay are also now looking abit sorry for its self as its spent a lot of its time parked in a sand quarry lol.

The old rotter has done me well though and clocked up over 14k now since it was built and not really missed a beat,it even flew though its mot the other week  Smile

Its certainly been fun harassing the daily traffic but I think soon that she may have to retire from the daily grind in favour of something more economical.
Shame really as I built it to be a daily but at the time I was not doing 60-80 miles a day.

I am also feeling that its only a matter of time before I possibly get into a bad crash in the thing as I have had more than the one close call on the motorway due to shite traffic/drivers.

Just the other month there was a close call on a slip road where the 2 cars in front of me locked up due to unseen stopped traffic,and even though I thought I had left adequate space that was obviously not the case as I went sailing up the inside of the back car stopping level with his passenger door.
We sort of both gave each other a knowing wave that yes I to have just stained my pants  Laughing


Not sure what the future holds for it atm although it certainly wont be going any where,proberly just end up a weekend car or get pulled out of the garage on the mornings that I am running late lol
