    Only reason i went this kit, as its been proven on the street and track ( still using the supplied maps) been trashed every fortnight at global time attack and only issues they had was the gearbox and clutch. Apparently the 2nd shears the teeth off , There has been a few updates to the gearbox's, so hopefully they have fixed the issues.

    Doesn't the Fiat use a stronger box, based off the older 6 speed?

    LS would come with stronger gearbox.

    So installed Teins, took out Teins and installed Ohlins, took out Ohlins and put in another set of Teins? What am I missing?

    Any reason why you went with the AVO kit? Did you consider the BBR kit?

    hahahah yeah, sold them due to getting a decent price on teins, and sold the ohlins for more than they owed me, liked the fact that the EDFC active pro could
    change settings in the cabin, long story short, sold my tein setup, was going to go MCA Reds, but due to funds just ended up going back to teins with different spring rates , Ended up going with AVO due to them looking after me on the kit, and also due to being track tested and proven,

    Went for a drive on sunday with the new tyre setup and suspension, even after "rolling" the fender with the hammer wasnt enough, will have to get the proper tool to do it.
    ended up stopping twice to adjust ride height lol




    also had the turbo kit turn up

    Perfect for a side pipe out under the guard.

    Stereo is/was pretty wild too, I didn't think anyone did that shit anymore!

    They are so much fun with forced induction. You finally have a match, decent power to suit a very capable chassis.

    This + turbo will make for a mighty nice little car. Really like the look of these, still do a double take when I see them on the street. Nice work.

    Good progress. Really keen to what sort of difference the turbo kit makes. Can see something like this in my future.

    Likewise. Of all the different cars I've owned over the past couple of years, none are more fun to drive than an MX5. I really need to go drive an ND soon.
