minor update.
I've moved house and bought the mother of all building projects so between the house and a 12 month year old the poor old rocco hasn't had much attention since late last year other then being moved on a trailer to its new home.

so i have finally got a bit organised with the house and have decided to put a bit of time into the car, namely when the wife goes out with the girls, i put the little one to bed and i get 4 hours or so.

this year so far i have removed all the fuel lines as they need to be larger, fitted a vr6 fuel filter in the location of the accumulator thanks to the bracket Sean sent me. Just need to order the fuel lines (Matt Lewis Racing is the cheapest for anyone interested) and get those fitted.
I cut and welded another section of the Down pipe on so it now reaches the steering rack! i just need to order more bends to keep going with it to get to the rear. Make a screamer pipe, again more pipe to order and of course next to no room to fit the thing!
work out why the hydro clutch wont bleed
lenghthen the intake pipework. The tuner said my maf is too close to the turbo as i have it now so i have to take the intake pipe down the side between the chassis leg and inner wing of course is just under 3inch! typical. Then take it horizontally along the front with the maf and the filter somewhere around the front engine mount, then bring the intake upwards again so its not just sucking in all the road junk.
install electronic boost controller and afr guage (which i can do now i have lengthened the downpipe).
and finally mount the washer bottle which i am part way through bu it just looks rubbish and can't bring myself to do it!
thats it really, will get some pics when i get the chance
