I got on with refitting the boost gauge yesterday, the one I had was not very clear so removed it and sold it, replaced it with a 7 colour one, much clearer, big thanks to Scott for all his help with the wiring :afro:

Next step is to look at moving it due to the fact it vibrates a lot.




Went for the green option for lighting  :smiley:

Well was not looking to spend a lot more money on the car but whilst browsing the for sale section I found another induction kit at a really good price.



So tonight got on with fitting it, dead easy to do all in all took me just over an hour, bumper is very easy to remove when you have done it a few times.





Was worried about what it would sound like but it is awesome but not as daft as the last kit so well pleased :smiley:

Well over the last week I have had the major job of replacing the heater matrix that had started to leak.

All in all took around 14 hours due to so much having to be removed to gain access.

Picture of work in progress.



All finished now and back on the road.

So whilst the car was apart last week, I took the chance to modify the center console so that the radio would fit in the bottom slot, this then allowed me the chance to put my extra gauges in.

Oil temp is not working yet as we need to fit the sensor but very pleased to have sorted it.

Did not like the gauges as it ment looking down to see them, so moved the boost gauge with a Newsouth pod and have sold the others.
