Oh... and can I suggest you take a break from buying shiny bits and buy some decent tyres. All those mods and you're running Fullway tyres?
Cheers for the comments

Fullways are long gone, soon smoked them for fun, they wer on the rims wen I bought them. Got pzero all round since then

Bit of progress with inlet most of lugs gone now just a bit of sanding to get rid of grinder marks then off to be blasted and powder coated. Hopefully fit to car next weekend when fuel rails arrive

Just Found a pic of the td05 that was fitted when I bought car. Had a dodgy conversion with rivets and tiger seal (not by me) but still ran well

Yeh 6speed fitted last year save the 5 speed crapping itself with the set up I'v got. 1.5 bar on launch control is rapid
