I looked at those and was quite tempted, although I'm hesitant because I have no idea what the brakes will feel like without the servo, will they be super heavy when you press the pedal?

Good luck if your fitting teh puma specific kit from OBP. you will need to add extra bracing to stop it flexing and twisting in use and you'll need to move the seat back a long way unless you have weird ankle joints

Hmm, well we weren't really left with much choice, at the time it was a rush to get parts in an attempt to try and finish the car for the car show this Saturday however that has since been changed. I didn't really know there were other choices on the market?

Who would you recommend then Ziggy?

Thank you!!!

I believe its the pistons that Chris has used in the engine build, they are oversized to a certain extent and IIRC he said something about this increasing the displacement? Need to do my homework!

Well Tuesday the car went to Redline Tuning with only some small bits left to be done at Lightning Motorsport!! Unfortunately, not had the smoothest of rides to get here.. And I don't have very many build pictures but hopefully by next weekend she should be all mine again after 9 long months!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

HE LIVES!! And boy has he got a mouth on him, so f*cking loud! 251bhp at .8 bar on the safe map, limited to 5k revs too.

I've got a little video I'll put up later (if someone wouldn't mind telling me how)

Anyway, see some of you at FordFair and those of you who aren't going, look out for pictures and videos on the way and keep checking back because next week it will be going back to Redline tuning once its been run in over the next few days to be fully mapped.. 400 bhp high boost here we come! :cheer:

Had a great time at Ford Fair yesterday with everyone, lovely to meet those of you who have followed this. Had lots and lots of compliments about the car, I shall update with some pictures soon! We had a track session too and I got one of my boys to take some videos for us. I'll post them up later too.

Unfortunately the car was on its safe map, limited to 5000 rpm so every time we got on the power, BAM.. there was the rev limiter! Cars were flying past us but it was a great experience and even with the rubbish tires, the car stuck to the road really well. The LSD in the RS gearbox is working well and the Gaz coilers all round are doing a great job too, the ride is brilliant, might stiffen it up a bit at the rear just a couple of clicks but nothing major. Popped out today to Redline Tuning and they have upped the rev limit to 6500 rpm.. All I can say now is WOW, just WOW :thumbs: it's only got 260 ish bhp at the moment on the safe map but it absolutely flies and those extra revs really make it come alive. Still running it in though so not going mad, just half throttle but by the end of August it will all be fully mapped :twisted:
