  7. Looks good. Have the forge kit myself. Just be careful, the hose rubs against some pieces of body work that stick out in the engine day. With vibrations from the car, the hose will split. I had to get a replacement hose. I wrapped areas of the new hose with black tape to add a little more protection. I also fitted some double-backed sticky foam to the sharp angles and pieces of sticking out body work. Check out my ride thread for pics to help show what I'm talking about.

    Well milltek cat back is the next job, and it'll need to be lowered before the wheels go on so I'm in no rush yet, plus insurance is due in march so need to start saving

    Still looking for a place that will do them in the colour I want but can't find anywhere, Pureklas hasn't been replying to my emails so kind of given up with them so at abit of a dead end with them really, was going to sell them as they were but want to keep going with them

    Just decided that the milltek is on hold for now due to insurance being around £750 in march so the £400 from my birthday and Christmas is going away for that

    well today my Emissions light came on after doing 175 miles or so down motorway / dual carriageway, it decided to pop up once i went onto the B roads, and continued to stay on, i have no idea why, the only reason i can thing of is because of the air filter, but im going to switch it back to the airbox during the week if it is still on tomorrow, im not happy :(

    right seeing as i haven't updated for a while, everything is still as it was, i.e BOV and induction Kit, purely because the light went off, and with insurance due in march i am trying my hardest to get some money together for parts before the show season starts :/ still needs lowering and need to finish my wheels off, but still cant make my mind up on a colour for the centres, apart from that, there is nothing new,

    You should mod your forge kit like mine mate :) Grab a 90degree pipe and you are away :) Much better IMO.

    Get her lowered. Duzza will sort you out. Really worth it for looks and goes great on track too :D
