They do all the FRP parts too, but to do it all is VERY expensive by the time you’ve got hubs, driveshafts, wishbones, bumpers and panelwork

Fith Gear on Quest featured a Puma rear disc conversion in the Mod Shop

Was a bit of a bodge to be honest. Glossed over the abs not being refitted, plus as you say, the fronts being upgraded would yeild much better results.

The FRP only brakes better due to the Alcons at the fronts, the rears are just show!

Bore liner

Hi Cevini, afraid that is delamination if the Nikasil. Financially, that block is scrap. You can get it bored out and steel sleeves put in, I know if an FRP that had that done a couple of years ago and gets rid of the issue where you need piston rings that suit Nikasil liners, however, it’s not chea...

Is yours twin airbag?

It’s a bit of an unknown as mine is also an AD, with twin bags and it was a straight plug in.

With the light going off at first, are you sure the plugs/ wiring are all ok? Nothing has been trapped has it?
