good observation, i might have a mockup set made and sit them against the car and have a look, but what 'zoomzoom' said was quite accurate.

A little off topic i know...not being an exa...but were all car enthusiasts so i thought id let yas in on what im currently up to on my other car a 1992 Mazda Bravo dual cab 4x4 thats been in the family since brand new. Currently performing a much needed rebuild after 408,000kms. A mate and myself had the engine out and apart lastnight. Pistons get sent to SPS on monday for forged replications, full new gasket set has been ordered from the states and a complete bottom end bearing kit from ACL. The car will be receiving a small turbo running at about 7-10psi with a haltech ecu when its back on the road within a month. I started driving the car in 2005 and made a few enhancements such as leather seats, sunroof, metallic black spray job, Alpine/Fusion Jonah lomu sound system, TJM flare kit etc, when the motors finished...should be good! Heres a few pics from lastnight and a couple from last weekend. Ill upload some more when the pistons arrive and the status of the N12.
