    Thinking it over, trying to fit air con, a straight 6 and fmic into this tiny car has been a huge undertaking and is just so tight for space.
    This is about as big a cooler as I can go, without removing the chin spoiler and grill. Without those the car would look awful though. So its now at a point where if this cooler cant support the power I want/need what is the point of upgrading everything else like head studs/main studs etc and other performance mods. I think I just need to step back from it for a while, all I do is throw money at this thing and I feel like it has so many restrictions. Heck the systems on it now might not even work.
    Rant over.
    Got me right in tha feels with this one..... i feel ya! And you got a front mount in it!! Hat off to ya :D

    Sometimes you do need to just step back for a bit! Always happy to have you bounce ideas off me and what i wouldnt do again. This car is awesome mate!

        There are apparently some bugs in the software that are screwing things up. It's happening to everyone. Admin are on it.

                Few more updates,

                Glass has gone in. Still need to seal it up.
                We have also made a start on pulling out the 1J and checking over the spare one we had in the corner. Once was much better than the other so looks like we at least have 1 decent crank, 1 good cylinder head and 2 blocks. One of the engines also had a set of ARP head studs which was a nice surprise, one less thing I need to purchase.

                Next few jobs will be tidy up the engine bay and also make a start on pulling down the R154 to rebuild that.

                      Went summernats had a go at skid alley thing?

                      If so it's on one of streetmachine clips.
                      an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.
