          5min of serenity update...

          Hacked all the fucked-up bits off. Panel beat out the dings as far as I could, confirmed all the important mounting points etc are true (yay). Sikaflex'd/riveted some alloy angle to improve the cosmetics (and conveniently provided a structural mounting lip for the front splitter).

          Regarding the brakes, I ended up buying the rear tesla uprights and rotors (308mm). As well as a complete set of new 308mm rotors all round. As mentioned, will just use the stand calipers for now (also picked up an OEM looking - obviously isn't, but looks it - front caliper spacer bracket to suit the 308s).

          also got a bit carried away doing a bit of Xmas gift shopping for myself...

          One m62 supercharger with built in bypass etc, one lsj supercharger manifold (with laminovas) to suit, one Saab b207e head.

          And being stubborn... I'm going to twin charge it, fuck it! 440hp 2.2l. K.thx.bi. I know I'm going about this all the wrong ways, but yeah, you get that. It's fun, I'm enjoying it. That's the point I reckon :)

            could of at least got a modern blower, a TVS900 (harrop HTV900) would probably work well on a twin charged 2.0

              M62 comes with a 'bolt on' manifold that is elegantly packaged. From a simplicity (irony!) point if view, difficult to argue with :)

                  its only after joining other forums and realising what crap cascasdes out the mouth of some, and how circlejerk reacharound-ness just self perpetuates in a heirachy of post-count posturing, that im reminded how refreshingly normal you cunts all are, and how refreshingly self regulated PF is.

                                Looks like shit from the back, but I'll work on that
