Well when mine come out mate, if you can make use of them, just let me know. The two rear Koni inserts are only a few months old. [Wink]

I have to say i don't know why you are spending money on coilovers if you have inserts anyway but hey.

Well my new FPR turned up today from Peter at sbITs.

It's an ATS Racing modified stock regulator that should allow me to increase my boost up to 1.7bar hopefully.

Then off to get it remapped for tesco 99ron fuel so could well make just over 400bhp from a ct26. [Twisted Evil]

Never actually weighed it T, but the carbon one is a LOT lighter.

Just picked up a Border bonnet for mine (to use before the ASK Sport one comes [Twisted Evil] ), andI was amazed by the weight difference. I could hold the bonnet by its edge and hold it straight out! [Shocked]

I would imagine it saves around 10 kilos.

Newest update.......

Now hapily running 1.7bar boost with an extra 4.5 degrees ignition advance so power should now be anywhere between 410 and 420fwhp i should think. Not bad from a ct26. [Wink]

ah didn't see that bit.

So basically a raise in line pressure to get some more fuel.

Just out of interest bud why not just go with some larger injectors to get the fuel over modified parts to push what you've got?

good result though buddy. Any idea of the flow specs on that turbo your running? just curious compaired to other turbo's etc.

My ar5e dyno can vouch for this thing. Mark took me out in it on Saturday afternoon, and I think my stomach is still somewhere on the road down near Hastings.

Sickeningly quick. [Shocked]

BTW. Good to finally meet you mate. Top day. [Wink]
