    Finally got all the bits into the engine be bay with a little help from a fellow cutter today. And I am pretty pleased. Just looks so nice with all the carbon!

    Pics say it better

    The strut brace looks nice but the relocation of the pump isnt neat at all.

    I's probably a better place for it, had to have mine split into pump and accumulator die to space, but the extended lines don't affecrt it all. Plus, being able to get to it easily just reduces any labour cost with getting it off, and make it easier to service. Plus, means that any troubleshooting it doesn't need to go on, come off, get under the car etc...

    Jaydee Custom Carbon works on ebay, was getting the covers, asked what else he had, and he had these, it looks awesome, however, it won't firt the standard bolts, so with the help of Rocketeer on here, got some longer bolts cut, used top mount bolts to mount from top, and the old nuts to mount from bottom, and then some of the rubber caps to finish it off. Got a deal on it as I'd ordered the rest. It is very very nice though.

    Originally it was meant to go in the top left drug bin compartment, but wasn't enough space, so it ended up where it is seeing as there was space after removing the sap. Was done when had the burkhart fitted, and I believe at the same time as when the new(er) engine went in. Had a bolt holding it in place via the engine cover, but the extension leads aren't meant to go that far, hence the arc. On the other hand, if the pump goes wrong, or I need to get anything fixed, you literally lift it out the engine bay now. Not the neatest, agreed, but convenient, yes. I'm going to do the temp sensor resistor mod, as it's not liking the heat on very hot days in stationary traffic, so it might not be the best place for it if not moving much

    Cheers :) I am very pleased with it

    Easy enough to duct some cool Air to that pump
    Maybe add heat shields

    hadn't thought of heat shields, but that is an excellent idea, plenty of space for it too, and can always run a pipe up from the drivers side foglight!
    Wicked, nice one!

    Even a 12v Pc case fan or the same brake duct mod they donwoth drain pipe bends

    Heat shield should stop radiant heat from the exhaust
