Thanks for the Update John:)
No problems thanks for looking. Not been to much going on lately with it to cold to be messing about in garage plus with Xmas coming under orders not to spend to much money on it :beer2: I also brought a MK2 ZS 120+ a few weeks back for my everyday car and that's needed a few jobs doing as with any new car

Still a fair way off but on the right track now hoping to get the cam cover painted tomorrow and the rest of the mounts on.

Race battery came today really pleased with it and another 8KG off the ZR's weight. Was a bit worried as CCA is only 170amps but turns over no problem :)....

Had a day off today to try get finished up only a few silly things now but other than getting the battery mounted and sorting the cables out its about ready for mapping, i will do the seat and plump in the bias valve etc later :)

Got the PRT fitted and put in a 90 degree hose to repair the heater pipe, also the uprated master cylinder in but i will need to get a different air filter due to the not much clearance now ....



And it looks like the end is almost in site just need to get the other wheels on so the slicks get a good clean up on the rollers :p go to see it back together tho, also got a quick run up the street and back to make sure it drives :)....

Finally a update guys just not been into it lately but had a bit of go today must have been the weather....

Getting it ready for the final push fir mapping....



Put the bigger master cylinder on but the bottle was to big so i had to strip it now and put on the original bottle on the new master cylinder....




Next job was to get the HEL brake lines on....


Followed by the Wilwood bias valve....




And the rear brake pipes just got to fit the P clips....




Got the running in oil out, run it back up with some cheap 10w40 semi engine to flush it through and in with the 5w40 ester motorsport oil. Oil pressure is 0.5 bar higher with the motorsport oil....



Also got the track wheels out in week to get all the dead rubber off ready for the mapping session....
