I had an annoying leak from what i thought were the cam covers. As it turned out it was coming from the cam seal itself.

Yeah my car was originally built to have a 137 kit installed and the 136 kit was installed last time as it was in stock at Peugeot rather than having to wait for a 137 tooth kit to be delivered. I would also always want to install an OE Peugeot kit over an after market kit.

my oil leak was from the opposite end of the cam to the cam seal so i was 100% it was coming from the carrier

So Yesterday myself and a friend though it would be a good idea to make a 13 hour round trip around Wales to collect various GTI6 parts

First stop was to see Jord294 to pick up 2 fresh rear beams

Second stop was to collect a bunch of parts from a guy in south wales who was splitting an old GTI6 race car, I picked up a few small parts

However my mate picked up a full set of 310mm Brembo callipers with bells, rotors, braided lines and adaptors plus a full set of GAZ coilovers

so I've made progress over the last week but also hit some major road blocks and had some issues.

managed to get the lower strut brace fitted

finally got the Cambelt fitted however had some major issues!

Having never fitted a cambelt or having the correct timing tools, i had this done by a friend who is a fully qualified mechanic that worked for Citroen for over 10 years. The belt fitted correctly timed up perfectly turned the car over once and this happened. We were extremely lucky that the engine came to rest with the split right at the top, otherwise this would have been missed and we would have put the covers back on. Ended up fitting a Gates kit as i wasn't about to wait to get one from Peugeot plus this all happened Friday night.

finished fitting the oil cooler I'm happy with it but i would like to get some better brackets made up and make it a little more rigid

With that fitted managed to fill the engine with fluids

got the new rear beam fitted along with all new rear pads disks and braided lines

With getting all the brakes fitted it them came time to Bleed them ....... Queue the next issue. firstly found one of the new rear braided lines was f**ked out of the box and leaked like a sieve. replaced that with a new one and now we think we have air in the abs block as no matter how hard we tried we couldn't get a good peddle feel at all well either that or we have flipped the seals on the master cylinder. planning on getting a pressure bleeder tomorrow trying that and also going to run through an abs block bleed. Fingers crossed thats the issue.

so not really an update but just what I've been up to with the car recently. Had an awesome trip to the Ring which when almost completely faultlessly. only slight issue was the throttle cable disconnecting from the pedal which was very odd but fortunately not while on track so no major recovery costs.

heres a few photos from the trip

so some things that were made very clear from the trip, the new suspension was good but it needs to be way stiffer. So I'm now on the hunt for coilovers lol. I ran full interior while we were out there bar the drivers bucket seat so i will be putting the car on a serious diet before the next track day.

oh and made a serious commitment to the track focus of the car. I pick this up from Ollie on Sunday

My old cage. It’s a lovely cage and being ‘Safety Devices’ it’s a quality one. Really recommend welding the joints after it’s been bolted together because the joints creak a lot!

Didn't realise you're fairly close Mr Foot. Just about to get the cage in mine after it's sat in my garage for over 2 years LOL

Are you bringing it to pugfest at all?

Spoke to PhillipM yesterday and he's making me up one of these as my lower engine mount is basically doing nothing

Untitled by Tom Foot, on Flickr

also seeing at the car is currently running mostly a standard exhaust other than a Scorpion back box I've managed to get a full Magnex system but does anyone know if there is any performance difference between these Decats?

Untitled by Tom Foot, on Flickr

finally after getting back from Retro rides at Goodwood today i gave the car a good clean

Untitled by Tom Foot, on Flickr

Untitled by Tom Foot, on Flickr

the next thing to do will be get the lower engine mount sorted and then fit the cage and put the car on a serious died
