The NB has finally gone off to unit 3 for mapping and the last few things that are easier done with a ramp (gearbox swap, clutch etc), the transporter I had booked decided to ghost me completely 2 days before the job and wouldn't confirm a time or answer the phone which was a dick move. Found another but it cost a fortune. Should be about 2 weeks until I can collect and should hopefully be making significantly more power. I did have the put the SA3Rs/ NS2Rs on as the old rainsports arent really MOT legal anymore, besides it's likely a better choice if the car is going to be making twice the power. This also gave me a chance to ceramic coat the Lorbers which came out looking pretty good. This is the 3rd set of wheels I've coated and I've still got 1/3 of a bottle left.
I also corrected the toe on the passenger rear on the track car, it's about 0.5mm toe in. This side really is a proper shit to do, I did want 1mm but it seems to shift when tightening really badly, 0.5 is better than 2 so i'll take it.
I took advantage of the last 2 warm weekends we're likely to have this year and got some body work done. I painted the lip and ducktail properly as they were only ever in gel coat until now and finished off the vented bonnet finally. I used U Pol 1k clear on the bonnet, which is meant to be similar in quality to 2k paint, it's not, it doesnt lay as nicely, is softer, doesnt sand or polish up as well etc, but it stopped me gasing myself and the neighbours. The bonnet isnt perfect but it's good enough or a track car and is only going to be put when needed.
Unit 3 are apparently done with the work on the NB, just a tune and MOT to go. It's meant to be being tuned today, anyone who wants to guess the numbers post below (whp), so far we have guesses of:
B - 250
C - 225
Br - 215
Me - 210
K - 187
D - 180
Yeh, I've made it clear to Josh I'm not chasing numbers and that keeping it at a safe level that I can really beat on is important. That being said I'm hoping for a chunk more power than a M45 would provide and similar to what a safe td04 setup generates.
