What did you do to your car today


#2013

did a buy


#2014

Fit a blanking plate onto the head and bypassed the coolant going into the throttle body.

I am going to put a tap on it so in the winter I can send the coolant through the throttle body then in the summer/warm days I can bypass it.


#2015

Had the hicas deleted and swapped the dead climate control LEDs for some new red ones.

Currently eyeing up a potential purchase, just need to find a car big enough to collect it


#2016

did some things


#2017

did more things


#2018

Fitted a few more fiddly bits to the turbo setup can’t wait for this to be back running again :heart_eyes:


#2019

Not today but built this over last month or so



#2020

Not all today, but yeah.

Got an import rear plate, didn’t fit. Got a smaller import rear plate, fits lovely:

Got some Heko wind deflectors, really like them. Didn’t take long to fit once I worked out how, thanks Youtube!

Then it went and passed MOT with just one advisory for rear tyre. Massive result! Very happy.

Got a Japspeed decat downpipe and fitted it. What a total bitch of a job that was.

Didn’t have a new manifold or midpipe so had to keep the flanges undamaged. Took ages and some very careful grinder work with a couple of mates. 150,000 mile old bolts are not fun to remove. Got it done eventually. Was scared it was going to blow even with new gaskets, so I may have gone overboard with the amount of exhaust paste used all in and around the flanges haha:

Doesn’t seem to be blowing at all, and I ragged the hell out of it this afternoon, so that’s good :blush:

So the exhaust system is now:

Standard manifold with precats
Decat downpipe
Standard midpipe with resonator
Straightpipe backbox section.

Now I thought still having precats and resonator in there would mean it wasn’t too mental. Nah mate, absolute ASBO. It’s mental, the sound is just ludicrous when you apply a large amount of throttle :joy: I might need to put some kind of backbox on to dull the rasp just a little bit. Low down in revs it’s really meaty, but 3 - 4.5k it gets proper raspy, which I’m not a huge fan of. Video doesn’t do it justice but here’s the sound:

Note how slow it is. I cry every time I watch it back. Imagine selling a 5 for an even slower car :joy:
