also you can add an intake air temp sensor with the power fc one a previous car i had i installed it on the cold side of the TMIC, you can get a fast acting one of a triumph motor bike that has very close range to the one on the STi (stock STi one is mounted in the intake snorkel so not accurate and isn't threaded so no good for TMIC mount), i will find the part number if you like?? also you can make the car pull timing when IAT gets too high but can't remember if you can do this on the hand controller or need fc datalogit (more functions with fc datalogit)

I hope they flow tested those injectors and gave you a new latency values to use with them.

TB looks boss. :) Now do the whole manifold in high temp black.

Think of doing a theme for engine. Was going to keep block in raw metal but clear it. Paint heads black. So get the contrast between the few highlights of black.
Havent got the flow test so will have ti do i guess.

That would look sweet. Make sure black hoses too. You'll have the black timing cover and alt cover as well. Even though it's in really good condition, I have been thinking of painting my alt cover. Just make it more black. I think you understand. And maybe a black rad cover too. The Perrins look awesome.

As long as you don't attach it to the motor and keep them separate, yea, I see that. Cover the fan gap. Powder coat it. Sweet.

Am still keen on a dam d or similar steering wheel too. 05 and earlier were single stage airbags so need to find a wheel that would fit one.

Was great to get a few ideas from members at the general meeting last night too. From running fuel rails to what heads/cams to use. Still wanting version 5/6 sti heads but got told why not use later heads from say 01/02. Not too sure if these are avics or nons but like to know if can swap these cams wise. Anyone out there whod know be great to hear from.
