Mount made for my Talon switch panel. Total newb at fabrication if you can call it that but good fun anyway.
400bhp NX Express wet kit just in case
Car loaded up and on the way to the dyno
Car made 555bhp on wastegate springs which is enough to run it in and zero modifications to the standard DRP gearbox.
My Dad loves the wood but I think it has to go
After lots of thought SQS or DonOctane decided to go for something purpose made and best of all UK made.

New guest has settled in nicely
Turbo to charge cooler pipe powder coated after a few little tweaks
Had a few issues on the dyno with pipes blowing off and overheating due to air locks so re-introduced an expansion bottle back in the system.
Found a local guy to paint the car so decided on House of Kolor ‘Jet set back’ and lots of clear and colour sanding. Seen it on the tv a bunch so fancy myself a nice paint job. On area I’ve never paid a lot of attention to.
