The car is coming along nicely mate, it's looking good now. When's the first outing planned?
I've got 2 sets of o.z ultraleggera wheels in 8x17 et38 and a set of rota grids the same for sale if you need some spare track wheels?

Got it on the road took it for the MOT and the brand new nissens radiator burst. Thinking it had a defect. All being well it should be getting sorted today. Here are a few pics.

Well really pleased with the car! Had a good shakedown at a localish sprint track with a few mates today. Faultless all day and feels very quick! I was worried a bit by having the standard evo diff ratio but it doesnít seem Too tall at all!

Now time for some proper trackdays!

So I did an evening session at donnington last Monday. The weather was spot on! The day session was rammedand so was the evening but not many people seemed to be out on track it was brilliant. Then I got black flagged!

Apparently I was 102.9db on the noise meters so that was that! I ended up just going round in fourth all evening not revving it out.

Then I started to losing lot of water. I thought at first it was an air lock in the system tried bleeding it went out again still losing water. No leaks anywhere. So I came to the conclusion the head gasket has gone. On the last run out the header tank was also bubbling. Bummer!

So I possibly need to do something with my exhaust and do my head gasket. Iím also not happy with the air box set up. So Iím going to look into changing that for a different one with a proper filter.

So start d taking the engine to bits to sort the head gasket. All looked very clean inside. I quickly came to the conclusion the engine had had a rebuild. Got down to the head and it looked like the original head bolts had been used and also the original head gasket! Another thing I couldn’t believe was how tight the spark plugs were!

The head went off to be pressure checked and it also needed skimming slightly. Ordered all my bits from Hack engineering to get it all back together and putting some arp head studs in for good measure. Also doing the vanos seals while the top end is in bits.

I wasn’t happy with my airbox set up either really. It needed the front snorkel and smaller rad. But I wasn’t to struck on this. So I had a chat with Martin from ms motorsport and I’ve gone for a karbonius airbox which fits the itg csl filter. Quality is very good!

Booked on an evening session 12th July at donnington so hope to get it all sorted and road miles on it before then!
I hope to be out at the Nurburgring shortly after the trackday although I need to change my seats for this!

I am really not sure how I have missed this so far!

I love what you have done with the car so far mate, I really do think nothing beats an s54 e36. it's the perfect combo!
