    2Forge lightweight race wheels in 18x8 have been ordered, will take 2 weeks to arrive. Once all 4 are on the car, I will get rid of the spare and the car will be at least 20kg lighter.

    ECS Stage 1 Rear Big Brake Kit - Drilled and Grooved 306x22mm Rotors, with ds2500 pads and 2 brand new real calipers with the carriers painted red have been ordered. My 2Forge lightweight race wheels in ET32 18x8 arrived today, just got to coat them in gtechniq c5 alloy wheel armour before putting on my ar1's and mounting them myself on the car. Pictures to follow when I get time. Car is running 30psi of boost, up from 28 before, will be booked in for rolling road sometime next month, should be close to 400hp.

    These 2Forge ZF1 look absolutely stunning on the car, steering feels much lighter too with far less unstrung weight.

    Porsche 911 oil and coolant cap and a load of different blue forge hoses to replace most of the standard ones.

    Well since I was going to have all my brakes replaced, it was justified to have all new wheel bearings fitted as the car is almost 14 years old. AP Racing 6 pots with 356mm floating 2 piece discs with ds2500 pads and braided brake lines were then fitted along with ESC rear big brake kit comprising of 306mm 2 piece discs, with new trw calipers, carriers and ds2500 pads. Not had a chance to use them properly as I am still bedding them in.

    Might be a stupid question but I'll ask it anyway.....

    How does cold air feed to that intake when's it hidden behind the battery like that?

    What a cracking brake set-up that looks , did you have to do any alterations to your master cylinder or reservoir due to the bigger calipers??

    Cold air Intake doesn't really matter as the cooler does the cooling before the intake. Intercooler is the most important thing, bigger the better.
