Don't forget to cut down the tab on the throttle linkage that goes under the little spring clip, or else you may scratch the side of your shiny new bodies or worse bend the spindle if it jams!

i want to get the manifold ported to the head, i might get it done when i take the head to coltech to get skimmed.

i will have to make the wiring loom myself, which suits me because i want the engine bay as empty as poss and hide all the wires.

Have To Agree with welshpug! about the sus kit...

i have a Gmax suspension kit on mine.. and within not too long one of the front shocks started squeaking, and now is beginning to leak..

so i got some Koni 60mm Springs Off Sarah on here..

and am getting Bilstein Front and rear shocks off of ebay.. the lot will end up costing approx
