Think for next year will fit bespoke gurdal for bottom end will be able rev safley to 7:500 ...and bigger injectors should be on wrong side off 400bhp with that hope manta will still be driveable and not all just wheelspin.. watch this space!!

well failed mot horn not working

and the brakes,on inspection one sides had no lining on the brake shoes

and brake pads were seized on to the cariers

fitted remote servo but guy at mot station thought servo wasn't up to the job of working the 10pot calipers fitted up front

after very slow drive down to mot station I new the floor mouted pedal box wouldn't have home for very long

so after having some help of my mate ado,gearbox out once more getting rid of clutch cable as my leg aint big enuf to press it down

going speak rally design see wot options there are for mt75 gearbox

already fitted willwood top hung pedals and accelerator pedal from corsa and it feels right!!

the open exhaust sounds mint but after driving it had fit box to tone it down a little!!

its a game of snakes and ladders the suck it and option

but will get there in the end..still don't no wot 300 horses feels like lol..
