Car is standard apart from Induction kit back box and dump valve.  I can\'t wait to finally drive one.  Motormall say it\'s rapid. :D


Gurj, yeah cool mate.  Weekend might be better tho eh?  Interested to see your single set up! :cool

Will PM you when I get it tom.

Will take some at the weekend.  Got it Thurs afternoon, by time I was done playing it was dark!!!  Gave it what I would call a bit of a blast bottled out when it got to 4500rpm so not even sure if the second turbo works :rollin .
Been driving really quietly to make sure everything is A Okay with it.  Other than a few minor niggles everything seems good and tight.  Hats off to Miguel!!:cool

You have PM by the way!

Matt,

depending on what mods have been done, take it easy in the wet not cool to lose the car before you\'ve even got it!!!

Lots of people get caught out on the second turbo kicking in, especially when cornering at speed:(

When i had my previous twin turbo rx i showed the Mrs how easy it were to lose it, simply going around a open corner very wide empty road and i booted it, in came the second turbo round went the car!!!!:(  heres a pic of her:

Gurj, your bumper was hanging low exactly like mine.

I\'ve had problems over the weekend mate, thats why I no call ya.  No second turbo spooling up on it :mad:   Few things not been done on it that I was told would be done.  I have e-mailed Miguel this morning and told him the probs I\'ve had and he has been absolutely fantastic.  I said I\'d got it booked in with Pip, and Miguel just said get the car sorted out and get WGT to bill Newera.  You can\'t say fairer than that.  Absolutely brill.

Did you manage to get the bumper on yours to fit snug in between the front lights.  Like mine it\'s snug at the front wings but "droopy" in the middle.

lol sorry matey i was joking about Gurj doing that please dont try it.
For what it\'s worth if yer bumper meets in the correct places at the sides then goes further away from bonnet then i guess there\'s little you can do to get a perfect gap unless you wana get massive amounts of filler out........
The one on Gurj\'s old car looks a bit more like it\'s being pulled down by it\'s own weight & not surprising as there are very few mounts actually holding the bumper on, my bodyshop made a point out of taking pish outa this but maybe it was part of Mazda\'s weight loss plan http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008_ZS\' target=\'_blank\'>http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_10_2.gif\' border=0>
On mine we (OK they...) made some extra supports underneath which bolt onto the bottom of the bumper & can be adjusted to support as required....Cant remember which we bolted it onto now think it was the RE_A strength bar we stuck on but i guess antiroll bar would do same, might even of done this on mine i\'ll try & have a look next time it in the air should be on Sat.....
Not the best pikky but you can vaguely see wot i\'m on about as per attached pikky:

should add looking at your opening pikky your\'s doesn\'t look too bad most have a slightly larger gap along the front bonnet bit which i guess also has beneficial cold air thing......
