thanks mate 8) as for the rims, i dont want to go down the path of rolled guards, spacers, grinding etc. on the look out for some 2nd hand 15 or 16's, no chrome but. so if anyone has some, pm me

wassup393 - when i put that pump in, near all my hoses leaked! had to retighten all the clamps, the pump isprobably overkill but is a good safeguard. have sent you pm...

hay man i love the car damn straight but i must say with microtech and fj injectors you are only making 17hp more then me. but looking at the ARF it looks like the fuel pump was stock. heaps of potential. i like it

yeah its the jap spec manifold, i just made some blanking flanges to cover the holes when i pulled the sensors off.
the engine is out at the moment cause my block cracked, i'll be adding an oil cooler this time round.

i like the matt black, don't have to wash it down so often! :lol:
still gotta do something about those wheels...
