Up on the ramps, underneath of the car is really clean, no corrosion and just generally very dry which is great. A bit of weeping form the drivers side rocker gasket which i'll have done at some point but not urgent. All bushes ok and no parts needing replacement.

Mods appear to be a high flow fuel pump, Cosworth panel filter, turbo back non-res Miltek system and thats about it. Nothing done to the suspension so may at some point look at a few choice mods, but to be honest it's good at the moment and i'm not keen to ruin the ride as it's a road car rather than for track.

Asked Mark to do a RR to check the map and see how it was performing as I was told it should be about 300bhp by the guy I bought it from. After a few runs...

Better than I expected I have to say although not totally surprising as it does feel pretty quick compared with other similar power cars i've had. Mark said the map was very well done and in the way he'd do it and thee was nothing to change or tweak, perfect basically. All a bit surprised but very pleased, the guys reckon i've got a good car and I left there having not really added to the car - almost disappointed!

Only possible recommendation is the car feels a bit light on the front end at 70mph+ and so a full wheel alignment to tweak the front to correct that. Need to find a decent place locally which is tricky.
glad you got on ok at thwaites, mark and the team are truly as good as they come. i was there last thursday to speak to mark about my forged rebuild.

for any suspension work i recommend simon at chevron motorsport in stafford, they will see you right.
